Fortier,  LCMHC

Pronouns: She/Her/Hers

I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor with 8 years of practice. I started Authentically You Counseling because I believe in the human potential for growth towards your true self. Your true self means being able to do the things you want to do while staying true to who you are. Depression, trauma, anxiety, relationships, gender identity, sexual identity, etc. no matter what's stopping you, if you want to make a change, I believe you can. I am trained and certified in a variety of evidence based practices - and sometimes the best practice is to meet you where you are to process your thoughts and emotions. Life changes can be difficult to manage - having a baby, divorce, retirement, relationship changes - therapy can help process these changes and find effective skills to manage life events. Make the first step - call to start your journey!

Congratulations on seeking help! Searching for a therapist is the first, and one of the bravest steps you can take. I am a Pre-Licensed Clinician here at Authentically You Counseling. I have previously worked at community mental health centers and I am currently researching dating anxiety, intimacy and self esteem. My areas of interest include dating and relations, self-esteem and confidence building, grief counseling and palliative care (end-of-life) counseling.

I primarily use CBT, DBT, and exposure therapy. More importantly, together we will use a holistic and collaborative approach to find what works best for you. I am experienced in psychological assessments, anxiety, stress, PTSD, depression, perfectionism, sports psychology, and work/life balance. 

My goal is to help you discover your own value in a safe space. So take the second step by calling for an intake or emailing!

Trying to navigate through life stressors, mental health, self-doubt and substance use can be extremely difficult to do alone; and you don't have to. If you find yourself masking interpersonal conflicts, avoiding emotion or suppressing who you are by drinking or using any substances as a way to cope, I can help. Whether you want to stop completely, decrease, refrain from relapsing or simply become mindful is entirely up to you. With zero judgment you can be free to discover who you are, who you're not and who you want to be with me as a guide, an ear to listen, a support.

I'd love to help you create your own map to a healthier, more authentic you. If we work together we can utilize the skills and strengths that are already present within you as well as exploring and developing new/additional ones. My goal is to help you create a foundation within yourself that empowers you.

The decision to address the self, any form of substance use and the connection they may have can be a hard one and a scary one. With comfort and safety being my priority we can work together at your pace. Whenever you're ready to reach out, I'm here!

I am hopeful in assisting you with any struggles you are currently undertaking. I will do my best to aid you in the management of experiences from anxiety & depression to social difficulty, and beyond. Through our therapeutic work I aim to help you in developing tools you can use on your own, increased understanding and awareness of self, and to help you feel comfortable in your own skin.

 

Helping you in your ability to improve your quality of life and capability of being yourself is paramount. I provide a comfortable and safe environment for you to learn about yourself and grow at your own pace. I will challenge you to be true with yourself and invest in yourself. I use a wide variety of interventions, techniques, and theories in my practice but am directed primarily by Gestalt’s theories.

 

I believe there is a very close link between mind, body, and emotion. Understanding how our emotions and experiences have the ability to alter the way we feel, and vice versa, is crucial to improved mental health. Some interventions or coping skills I like to employ involve mindfulness, perspective shifting, and the introduction of various coping strategies catered to your experience. I really enjoy working with teenagers and young adults, and have been doing so for some time now.

I am a master's-level mental health counselor working toward my clinical license. I believe in strengths-based, solution-focused therapy and am interested in working with teens, adults and couples to help them overcome life's challenges.

Whether you're struggling with unhealthy behaviors, trying to figure out who you are or want to be, or coping with a difficult life event, I would like to help you navigate those challenges with compassion and unconditional support. I have experience working with addiction, depression, anxiety, PTSD, relationship distress, sexual identity and more. I use a variety of therapeutic modalities, including cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy and narrative therapy;  more importantly, I believe that therapy is not one-size-fits-all, and I work closely with my clients to establish goals and figure out what approach would be the most effective.

Please don't hesitate to reach out and see if I might be a good fit for your therapeutic journey!

Asking for help isn’t easy, and it takes a great deal of courage to take that first step. If you find yourself struggling to cope with major life transitions, feelings of worthlessness, or are just feeling stuck, you have come to the right place.


I provide a safe, non-judgmental space, where, with warmth, compassion, and humor, we can tackle some of life’s issues head on. Making changes can be scary, and I will help support and encourage you along your journey of self-discovery. I use a strength-based humanistic approach to therapy, and utilize a mixture of cognitive behaviour therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, internal family systems, and affirmative counseling interventions to help clients reach their full potential. 


I have previously worked with children, adolescence, adults, families, disabled individuals, and groups. Every client is unique, and I will collaborate closely with you to create a treatment plan that feels right for you. Whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, PTSD, social/emotional difficulties, or self-identification, you do not have to face these challenges alone. Together, we will explore your vulnerabilities and empower you to reach your goals.


When you are ready, take the next step by reaching out.

Discussing sex and sexuality can feel awkward or challenging. Many of us are taught to feel shameful about our bodies, the ways we love, and the ways in which we experience pleasure. I'm here to help you say, "no, thank you," to these old stories and step into radical self-acceptance. Life is about relationships - with ourselves, others, and the systems around us. Feelings of disconnect, exhaustion, embarrassment, and anger can all come to the surface without rich and meaningful relationships. Whether you hope to rebuild trust, communication, intimacy, or joy with yourself or someone you treasure, my goal is to support your growth.
 

I focus on BDSM, GSM identities, and sexual trauma recovery. Sessions are client-centered, identity-affirming, and judgement-free. You are the expert on your life and your experiences, and it is an honor to be a part of your journey of exploration, discovery, and insight.

 

My approach is trauma-informed and relies on IFS parts work.I am a masters-level student therapist pursuing my CMHC degree at Antioch University and my AASECT credentials through the Buehler Institute's Comprehensive Sexology Program.

We inhabit a world that often prescribes a certain way of life, leaving us little room to discover our true selves. We can easily get lost in the cacophony of societal opinions, leading to a loss of our authentic identity. I understand this struggle, and I am here to help you navigate through it.

You are not alone. You deserve your own truth, not the life you were led to believe you should have. It is a privilege to listen to your story and your truths. I offer a safe and nonjudgmental space that encourages you to explore yourself with unconditional positive regard. Here, you can be assured that whatever you bring will be met with a genuine desire to understand. You have the strength to do this, and I am here to support you.  

I encompass an empathic, collaborative, and solution-focused approach to therapy. Therapy can transform lives for the better; as my mission, I am deeply committed to creating a safe, nonjudgmental space to explore thoughts, emotions, and feelings. Everyone should have a safe place to explore themselves, and I can be that person for you. Making the first step to participating in therapy is scary, but I am proud of you for making it this far! With a focus on cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques, mindfulness techniques, and developing coping skills, we are just one step closer to finding the most genuine version of you. I invite you to reach out; together, we can positively change your life.
