I am Courtney Groce, a Licensed Professional Counselor in Jefferson City, MO. As a counselor for the last 3 years and a mental health professional for the last 10 years, I have experience in a variety of areas such as: Substance Abuse Counseling, Co-occurring, Trauma, Grief, and as well as many other areas. I started my journey as therapist at the Lincoln University of Missouri counseling students in a transitional stage of their lives. During that time I learned the importance of having support in the most difficult times of your life, due to the high rate of people struggling with anxiety and depression. It is my goal that through therapy I will be able to help you overcome any struggles that you may be facing in your life's journey right now.
I also do volunteer counseling through my church and other community based programs, in which I have gain experience with doing Christian based Counseling. In christian based counseling I use a biblical counseling approach, to help you seek God's wisdom in overcoming your struggles in life. Yet, I am mostly utilize my counseling skills in my secular job as therapist in substance abuse facility.
The counseling approaches I use are mindfulness based, because I truly believe that once we get out of our head and into our lives we will not just survive but we will start to thrive. We also know that change is hard, and sometimes it takes times and support to make a sustainable change that will really impact our lives. So I am here to walk through this journey with you for a better tomorrow.
