K-Counseling Staff Boise, Meridian, Eagle, Nampa, Garden City, Star, & Kuna
My name is Cortney Owen and I am the Executive Office Manager of K-Counseling & Anxiety Treatment, LLC. I was born in Cleveland, Ohio and moved to Boise 5 years ago. I graduated from Grand Canyon University with a B.S. in Applied Management. I enjoy being outdoors, baking, and writing poetry. Mental health is something I’ve always been very passionate about, so I’m proud to work in a safe place where mental health is a number one priority.
LILY AUSTIN, LPC
Hi! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I graduated from New York University with a Master’s degree in Counseling & Wellness. I have experience working with children, adolescents, young adults, and families. My experience also includes addressing difficult transitions, anxiety, stress, depression, trauma, anger, and impulsivity. I utilize eclectic, person-centered, solution-focused, narrative, and mindfulness techniques. I believe in providing a safe & inclusive space that does not discriminate based on race, gender, sexuality, religion, disability or any aspect relating to a person’s identity. I collaborate with each client to create a unique treatment plan to develop strategies that reduce symptoms quickly to help them create a more meaningful & satisfying life.
I grew up in the Treasure Valley and I recently moved back to Boise. When I am not at work, I enjoy hiking, practicing yoga, playing sports, journaling, cooking, and connecting with loved ones! Thank you for taking the time to stop by to check out my picture and learn a bit about me. Feel free to schedule an appointment with me today.

Are you ready to feel better? Life can be overwhelming and sometimes we just need a little help. I am here to support you and help you find the way to feeling good and living the life you desire. I love being a counselor and seeing the profound changes my clients experience in therapy. I am a trauma-informed therapist, trained in EMDR and Solutions-Focused Brief Therapy. I also draw on other evidence-based therapies to fit your needs, including the cutting-edge tools that make K-Counseling uniquely efficient at treating anxiety and other issues. My passion is to find the best way to help you. That includes making therapy a welcoming place. If sitting in an office talking face to face is not your style, just let me know and we can often do therapy while we take a walk.
I have a Masters Degree in Counseling from Adams State University and much of my experience is helping children, teens, and adults through life transitions and grief from loss. I am inspired by my clients’ strength and resilience in spite of what life has thrown at them. I have also worked with children as a school counselor for several years and understand the challenges of the school environment.
Away from the clinic, I live with my husband, Dan and our cat, Lucy. We have three grown children. My favorite thing to do is to spend time with all of them, cooking, playing, and having quality conversation. I also love to read, sew, and watch movies with my husband—and sometimes he talks me into playing golf, which I’m learning to like more. Thank you for taking the time to learn about me.
