    Modern Mind Counseling

    ***Due to COVID-19, all services are provided via Telehealth until further notice.***


    At Modern Mind Counseling, founder Courtney Rolfe, Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, utilizes current research and developments in mindfulness, interpersonal neurobiology, Polyvagal Theory, and evidenced-based cognitive behavioral therapy techniques to assist clients in achieving their desired sense of wellness. This physiology-based approach helps clients learn the tools to manage stress, symptoms of depression, symptoms of anxiety, anger, emotional imbalance, and relationship issues.


    Incorporating mindfulness into treatment helps clients learn skills that can increase their ability to gain control over unhelpful, "auto-pilot" patterns. Modern Mind Counseling takes a skill-building, insight-oriented approach, helping clients become empowered to create the change they wish to see in their lives.


    Modern Mind Counseling uses the science-informed Polyvagal Theory in helping clients learn and understand their own nervous system survival responses, and their ability to safely connect with other people. Using structured psychoeducation and exercises, clients learn tools to help them manage mood states, relational difficulties, symptoms of anxiety and depression, and other manifestations of past relational and event traumas.

    Individual Counseling

    Individual Counseling

    Individuals seek counseling for a myriad of reasons. Some individuals may need support in managing symptoms of anxiety, depression, attention deficit disorder, past trauma, or other concerns. Some individuals benefit from having an additional support in their lives as a way to manage stress. Individual counseling is different for everyone. If you have a specific concern in your life, or need some support, individual counseling might be a good place to start.


    At Modern Mind Counseling, clients can expect an ongoing offering of science-based information to help each client understand their experience, and progress toward healing. The first few weeks and months of sessions will typically include various structured activities and experiential exercises to help build each client's knowledge base around the concepts of brain-body connection and nervous system functioning. Together, therapist and client will develop a shared lens and language that will allow curiosity, safety, and compassion to guide the process of healing and change.
