DISCOVER YOUR PATH TOWARD
RECONNECTION AND HEALING

Does this sound like you?

You ruminate over the little things, can't seem to turn it off, and struggle to fall asleep easily at night due to overthinking.

You feel anxious a lot of the time but can't seem to make sense of it other than feeling like something is wrong with you.

You are hard on yourself and fall into a pattern of negative self-talk.

When you feel triggered you end up spiraling which can take hours to days to recover from.

You often struggle to communicate or know what to communicate when interacting with others.

When you experience conflict you can go totally numb or dissociate.

You feel this sense of waiting for the other shoe to always drop.

You have the tendency to always put others first or people please.

You find that you often feel like you are who everyone else needs you to be - not who you want to be.

You have no idea who you really are.

loves alien movies, iced americanos, and cheetahs.

And I'm here to help you make sense of this all. I do this by showing up as a human first - authentically as I can be and working through a trauma-informed lens. The truth is that I've been in your shoes, trying to find the right therapist and it is a really hard step to take. The therapy industry is overcomplicated and confusing - and I do my best to try to demystify that for you.

 

I want to meet you where you are at on this journey and ensure you feel safe and comfortable doing this work together. 

Hi, i'm Courtney

I'm not your average counselor,

Have you sat in sessions of traditional talk therapy feeling like you are spinning your wheels and getting nowhere? Were you offered quick fixes and coping skills that felt like they didn't sustain you over the longer term?

 

My approach differs in that it integrates holistically with the body to find deeper root cause awareness as to what is going on for you. How do I know this? I have a bachelor's degree in kinesiology and have been studying the body as a coach for years. Paired with my master's in mental health counseling I have learned how trauma and just life in general impacts your body. I can teach you how to translate what it is trying to tell you and show you how to communicate back with it.

In turn that empowers you to understand yourself on a whole other level.

I help give you the language to explain what it feels like to be you.

let me show you how to build that cohesion 

If you are feeling emotionally exhausted, wanting to set boundaries but don't know where to start, looking to know yourself better + beat self-doubt and gain confidence?

you're in the right place

in other words, how do I know this will work for me?

 

It's a fair question!

Counselors work with all different types of theories and practice differently

so how are you supposed to know working with me will actually help you?

The clients I've worked with who have found success had a few similar things in common, including:

  • Feeling ready to take accountability and ownership of their life

  • Wanting to have honest, transparent conversations about what they are thinking

  • Willingness to start to peel back the layers of their lived experiences

  • Being invested in wanting to makes changes or doing "the work"

  • Wanting to break generational trauma to make a different life for future generations

  • Having the ability to lean into the process - even if it feels uncomfortable at times

How do I know I'm ready to start?

I feel ready, where do I begin?

Steps to Start

1

Schedule your totally free 15-minute consultation call with me to discuss your situation and get a sense of how I can help you.

2

If we mutually agree that the fit feels right we'll figure out the best time to schedule a 60 minute intake session.

3

During the intake session, we comprehensively cover your background and history (always to your comfort level).

4

If it still feels like the right fit, we'll schedule out a few more sessions from there and get started addressing what you'd like help with.
