I am licensed in South Carolina with 5 years of professional work experience, specifically working with teens and their families. I have worked with teens in the outpatient and residential setting.
I have experience in helping teens with stress and anxiety, family conflicts, LGBTQIA+ issues, trauma and abuse, & eating disorders. I engage my clients in many therapeutic modalities including; Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). I am also Level 1 Brainspotting trained.
I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Courtnie Merrill-Perry. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Teen Counseling might be different.
Thus far we are pleased with teen counseling and all of Courtnie Merrill- Perry's help!
Courtnie really pays attention to what I share with her and addresses my concerns in a thoughtful and constructive manner. She is very easy to talk to, and great at establishing a sense of trust right out the gate. She's wonderful!
Courtnie has been very helpful and responsive even after only 2 sessions. She has sent a couple of helpful work sheets and give me some useful tools to use dealing with my stress and communication.
