Courtney Rakkaus

Clinical/Counseling Intern & Psychotherapist

I hope to empower you to become the author of your own story and to realize that there is so much possibility and hope to be found in what is yet to be written.

Therapy should be a collaborative, egalitarian process. Just as I bring my own clinical expertise to each session, you are the expert on your own life, and I seek first to understand. I approach therapy from a feminist and social justice perspective and a deep reverence for your personal story. I work with a holistic lens and tend to integrate body awareness into sessions. My communication style tends to be straightforward, but I also believe that truth must be delivered with gentleness and willingly received. I can promise to meet you where you are, and together, we can make a plan for moving forward.

I believe you are so much more than a diagnosis. To quote the author B.J. Neblett, “We are the sum total of our experiences. Those experiences…and those yet to come, continue to influence and reshape the person we are, and the person we become. None of us are the same as we were yesterday, nor will be tomorrow.”

I hope to empower you to become the author of your own story and to realize that there is so much possibility and hope to be found in what is yet to be written.

Note: Courtney offers some reduced-fee and pro-bono services, in addition to accepting most insurance.

Understanding our relational  approach can give you a sense of how psychotherapy can help. Unlike counseling and other types of therapy, it takes a perspective that’s both deeper and broader. By focusing on emotions, it seeks to discover hidden pieces of who you are and then to understand how those pieces fit together.
