Courtney provides a compassionate, supportive space and shows you how to effectively deal with painful feelings, clear any blocks that have been keeping you “stuck,” and move your life forward in a positive direction.

Courtney Armstrong is a Master Practitioner in Rapid Resolution Therapy™, a cognitive-experiential approach to change that integrates both the rational and emotional systems of the brain to quickly calm anxiety, heal emotional pain, and create renewed joy and purpose in your life. With this approach people often experience significant improvement within 1-6 sessions and find the results are lasting.

Through her 20 years experience as a counselor and hypnotherapist, Courtney discovered that the emotional part of our brain learns better through an experience and our five-senses, not from logical analysis and discussion about a problem. That’s why you can’t just talk yourself out of a bad mood, panic attack, or flashback.

Instead the emotional brain responds to connection, imagery, metaphor, movement, and even humor. So, rather than just spend time talking about the problem, Courtney integrates these creative elements into your therapy to accelerate healing.

    Create Your Inner Light Image

    My friend and colleague Lisa Mitchell wrote this guest blog post and created an art therapy activity that expands on a guided imagery process we use in Rapid Resolution Therapy to reconnect you with your "Higher Self" or "Inner Light." First, recall a memory of a peak experience you've had, or if you are working with a client, ask them to recall one of their peak experiences where they felt a sense of awe, peace, or excitement. When recalling the experience, really get into it. Embody it. Bring it to mind in the most vibrant and visceral way. As you get in…
  • Finding the Motivation

    Finding the Motivation

    How many times have you said, "I know I need to do such and such, but I just can't get myself to do it? Most people feel as they have these two warring parts within themselves. Actually, the problem is the conscious part of the mind that makes decisions and plans strategies speaks a very different language from your subconscious mind which controls your motivation and automatic behavior. To get yourself to do something, you have to speak in a way the subconscious, AKA your emotional brain, understands. The emotional brain sits in the deep mid-brain and thinks like an…
