About Us

GroundWork Counseling in Orlando is a boutique private practice counseling center dedicated to providing the highest quality of care and personalized attention to our clients.

Our team of therapists specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a highly focused, short-term type of therapy that has been proven to be the treatment of choice for many types of challenges. Research has repeatedly found that CBT is the most effective type of treatment for anxiety, OCD, dissatisfaction with life, depression, as well as many other emotional challenges. Unlike most other types of therapy that typically focus on early childhood experiences and past traumas, CBT is focused on the present and is very goal-oriented and active. CBT utilizes self-help skills such as homework assignments to dynamically change thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Because treatment is so active and focused, improvement typically takes place much sooner than in other talk therapies and as a result, CBT helps to end treatment sooner and teaches you to become your own best resource to solve problems. Research on the effectiveness of CBT has been overwhelming, making CBT the treatment of choice.

Our mission is to provide evidence-based therapy in an understanding and supportive environment that will facilitate growth, solutions, and results.

Specialists, Not Generalists

Courtney and Marion when opening GroundWork in 2013

At GroundWork Counseling, we provide specialized evidence-based therapeutic services to individuals, couples, teens, and children who are in need of guidance through emotionally difficult family, personal, or professional challenges.  We are a team of supportive, collaborative and solution-focused therapists and because we feel strongly that counseling shouldn’t be “one size fits all”, we strive to create a specialized experience for our clients.  Our therapists exclusively and intentionally work with a small population of clientele so that we can provide the best emotional wellness services possible. Our therapists are often easily reached, quick to return phone calls, and best of all, specially trained in CBT. 

All clinicians at GroundWork Counseling have received specialized CBT training from leading world institutes including the Beck Institute, the Albert Ellis Institute, The International OCD Foundation, Mclean Hospital (an affiliate of Harvard Medical School), and two of our therapists have earned CBT Diplomate status from the ABCT; there are less than 1,500 diplomats of CBT worldwide.

Chances are you may have previously received counseling, with little to no relief of your presenting symptoms. Allow our team of trained Cognitive Behavioral Therapists help you alleviate distress, and provide you with the tools to move forward, often without the need for medication.

When you call Groundwork Counseling, you will speak directly with a staff to set up your appointment. During your initial phone call we will work with you to match you with the best possible clinician at our office.

Our Story

GroundWork Counseling’s founders, Marion Plessner Rodrigue, and Courtney Rodrigue Hubscher are no strangers to working together. As a young girl, Courtney helped her mother, Marion, with her “kid-tested Mom-approved” pony business by riding, training and showing ponies that Marion sold on the hunter-jumper circuit in Maine. The pair travelled to horse shows together nearly every weekend throughout Courtney’s teen years, spending more time together than most mothers and daughters. When their paths both led them to the field of psychology and therapy, it seemed only natural that they would work together again. 

Courtney and Marion are often asked how a mother and daughter duo can not only have a wonderful working relationship, but also thoroughly enjoy “mother-daughter time” outside of the office, and it stems from respect and admiration.  We look forward to helping you, and your family.

GroundWork is proud to offer CBT virtually for individuals residing in Florida, and in-office visits for those residing in Central Florida.
