Courtney Rosvold, M.C.
Hello, and thank you for taking the first step to getting to know a little bit about me. I have worked with adolescents and families for the past 12 years as a junior and senior high school teacher. I am transitioning away from that career to work more closely with individuals to facilitate holistic changes and increase their overall feelings of well-being. When I’m not working or studying, I enjoy spending time with my family and chasing after my happy almost-3-year-old. I also enjoy live theatre, traveling, and discussing good books with friends.
I am interested in working with clients to help empower them around issues of depression, anxiety, attachment, communication, relationships, ADHD, and trauma. I also have a special interest in working with individual’s suffering from addictions or problem behaviours: These could include drug and alcohol addiction, but also Internet (video gaming, pornography, social media, etc), food/eating patterns, sex, relationship, shopping, gambling, and overworking.
I believe that all people are born with the drive to self-actualize and we have an infinite capacity to change and better ourselves. This natural process can be interrupted by many factors throughout a person’s lifetime. When this process is interrupted people can become stuck in unhelpful patterns of thought and behaviour that can lead to undesired results or a tendency towards negative emotional states. People have the capacity to change these unhelpful patterns for themselves and working with a counsellor can help facilitate this change.
I believe that the integration of a person-centered CBT approach gives clients the empathy and connection that can help them process their understandings of the world and then gives them the tools to make measurable changes on their personal path to self-actualization.
I believe that people have the power to change themselves at any time, but often times it requires a choice on the part of the individual. It is when an individual has made the choice to change that a counsellor can help as a facilitator. If you are interested in exploring a change I would be thrilled to meet with you.
As a Provisional Registered Psychologist, I provide individual, couples, and family counselling under the supervision of Dr. Caroline Buzanko (Registered Psychologist).
