About Courtney

Courtney E. Battista (Gregory) LPC LCADC earned a MA and EdM in Psychological Counseling: Mental Health and Wellness from Columbia University in New York, NY.  

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor in New Jersey.   

As a Mother of three (born 2015, and twins 2017),  Psychotherapist, and Professor of Psychology I believe I have various strengths and the ability connect to client concerns.  The work of a Psychotherapist sometimes means to be nurturing like a Mother, insightful as a Therapist, but also an Educator that teaches skills.  

I work with a range of clients from children, adolescents, to adults with experience in group, family, and individual psychotherapy.


My focus is to help clients gain insight into their concerns, gain an empowered sense of self, internalize a range of coping skills, and minimize negative influences.   I believe in the mind-body connection and uses mindfulness techniques as a way of connecting differently to thoughts and emotions. 


Brielle Aaron LAC earned a MS in Mental Health Counseling from Monmouth University in West Long Branch, New Jersey. 

I have avid passions in my personal life and I strive to bring the same drive, compassion and dedication that fuels those passions to my professional life in order to help those who are courageous enough to accept that they cannot do this alone. 

I believe each person is an expert on their own life and sometimes need support, safety and guidance to navigate life’s peaks, valleys and everything in between. I strive to provide a comforting environment free of judgements in the hopes of supporting and nurturing a trusting therapeutic relationship with each of my clients. I incorporate a variety of treatments such as CBT, DBT, person centered, creative therapies and mindfulness based interventions to suit the individual needs of each person. My areas of interest and expertise include bereavement, anxiety, depression, pet loss and Animal Assisted Therapies. 

I whole heartedly believe every individual deserves to have happiness, fulfillment and a life worth living. Through forming an authentic and meaningful connection with my clients it is my hope that together we can explore what that means for each unique person while fostering trust, genuineness, safety and respect. 

Making the choice to seek out counseling can feel uncomfortable and vulnerable though it is tremendously courageous. Allowing oneself to be fully willing to uncover and explore their internal and external struggles while gaining perspective is admirable. I commend you for making the choice to put yourself first.
