Anonymous Testimonials From Our Clients:
“I found Courtnay when I was desperate for something worth living for again and felt like, for the first time in my life, I could not find the answers on my own. In short, I was praying for hope/optimism. I found it.”
“Working with Courtnay has been a transformative experience. Her somatic approach to trauma healing has allowed me to connect with parts of myself that I had long ignored. Her commitment to providing the best resources for healing has created a supportive and empowering environment. I highly recommend Courtnay for anyone seeking a compassionate and effective therapist.”
“I stopped drinking and drugs within 2 months of working with Courtnay because she helped me unravel the pain that brought me there, and to see clearly what the resulting addictions were doing to my body, mind, and spirit. We worked deeply for 2 years and I was able to approach and process the pain and trauma. I now experience gratitude and wonder every day.”
“Courtnay helped me heal my old wounds and for the first time have real confidence in myself. She taught me how to identify my emotions, how to feel them in my body, and how to calmly understand them and process them.”
