Courtney K. Rakkaus
Courtney strives to create a safe, equitable space based on mutual respect. As a therapist, she considers not just your personal history, but the societal and cultural expectations placed upon you and the meaning you have derived from these experiences. Her approach is strengths-based and client-centered with an emphasis on psychoeducation.
Courtney’s communication style tends to be straightforward, but she also believes that feedback must be delivered with gentleness and willingly received. Approaching therapy through a feminist and social justice lens, Courtney’s goal is not only to help you create positive change in your life but also to have a positive effect on society, even if on a small scale.
Courtney especially enjoys working with members of the LGBTQIA+ community, individuals in polyamorous or consensually non-monogamous relationships, and the full spectrum of gender expression and identity. She is a kink-friendly provider.
Courtney is working under the licensed supervision of Erica Johnson, MA, LPCC while she pursues clinical licensure as a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor.
