Ms. Hicks is one of just two DBT-Linehan Board Certified Clinicians in North Texas, and one of just a handful in Texas. She received her Master of Science in Counseling at Southern Methodist University. She completed her graduate internship in the child and adolescent unit at Timberlawn Mental Health Services. She then worked as a quality training supervisor at Adapt Community Solutions and later as an inpatient treatment manager in both the adult and adolescent units at Green Oaks Hospital. After finding inpatient treatment to be ineffective in maintaining long-term results, Ms. Hicks sought out training in DBT to be more effective in helping clients rediscover a life worth living. She has since been working in private practice providing DBT and is an Intensively Trained DBT Therapist through Behavioral Tech. Courtney also offers DBT Prolonged Exposure Protocol for PTSD and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia.
