Cort helps his clients break unhealthy and unhelpful patterns in their lives.
He believes that being “stuck” is often due to being caught in a stagnant cycle where thoughts, actions, and feelings reinforce each other in ways that prevent a person from moving in the direction they want in their lives. Cort assists clients in discovering which part of the cycle is most accessible to them, and then helps them to focus their efforts in changing that part of the cycle in order to promote positive results in the others areas. He also helps clients discover their inner narrative, i.e., their story of Self, and works to help clients understand how powerful their story is. He supports his clients in speaking to and about themselves in positive, reaffirming ways.
Cort has a Master of Science (M.S.) in Clinical and Counseling Psychology from Chestnut Hill College and is pursuing his Licensed Professional Counselor (L.P.C.) in New Jersey. He also has a Master of Arts (M.A.) in Theological Studies from Boston College and is very comfortable integrating a spiritual perspective with clients if it is their desire to do so.
Although his original bachelor’s degree was in psychology from St. Joseph’s University, Cort spent 10 years in the Information Technology field before re-directing himself into counseling.
