Courtney Witt, MS, LCMFT, LMFT
Licensed Clinical Marriage & Family Therapist (Kansas) &Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (Missouri)
I am passionate about engaging individuals, couples, and families as they navigate through life’s challenges. My work as a therapist is deeply grounded in offering a counseling experience that allows individuals to feel empowered, safe, and comfortable. I have a particular interest in helping couples navigate relational issues and individuals struggling to overcome depression, anxiety, motherhood, and other emotional concerns. In my practice, I utilize an Attachment Based Therapeutic model in which focuses directly on the family unit; counseling individuals to re-establish healthy roles, strengthen boundaries, and build an emotional and compassionate connection.
I began my clinical career working in community mental health, diagnosing and treating adults with severe mental illness. My work as a therapist continued at KidsTLC, a Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility, in Olathe, Kansas, where I provided psychotherapy services to adolescence (age 12-17) dealing with complex trauma. After working in PRTF, I transitioned into a group practice in Manhattan, KS, at Andrews & Associates working primarily with couples and then started my individual practice, serving the greater Kansas City.
In addition to my clinical work in private practice in Kansas City, MO and Manhattan, KS, I also offer virtual sessions online. I am also have advanced training in EFT with completion of Externship, Core Skills and Supervision. Additionally, I am currently a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator – Candidate, based on the research of Brené Brown. I am focused to the vulnerability, the pain and the process that therapy can provide to enhance ourselves and relationships. I am devoted to expanding my own personal and clinical expertise, and attend trainings and workshops regularly throughout each calendar year.
I have a tremendous amount of respect and admiration for all the diversity this world has to offer. What a blessing to have so many lived experiences, so uniquely different and valuable. I am an ally for individuals from various cultural or social backgrounds as well as different expressions of gender and sexuality.
I am beyond grateful that my journey has led me here.
