O’Connor Professional Group Webinar – Collegial Conversations with Diana Clark – Using Buddhism as a Therapeutic Approach
In this week’s Collegial Conversations, Diana’s guest is Courtney Plank. Courtney is a licensed therapist who uses mindfulness, strength-based practices, and Buddhist psychology. She and Diana talk about how Buddhism can be used with clients to uncover old unhelpful patterns and build healthier ways to operate through life.
Courtney is a licensed therapist in New York and Connecticut. She holds a Masters in Clinical Therapy from Columbia University School of Social Work and a BS from the University of California, Irvine. Courtney worked for years at New York Presbyterian Weill Cornell, where she became ever so passionate about helping those who mentally suffer find a way out of suffering. She uses her training in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, Buddhist Psychology, and Strengths-based practices to help her clients unearth old unhelpful patterns and build healthier ways of seeing themselves and operating in the world. By rewiring and co-creating a new perspective, Courtney helps her clients meet their goals and provides a safe space to examine their lives and relationships with empathy and compassion. Analyzing the genesis of current patterns/issues helps foster shifts in perspective and behavior critical to healthy growth.
