Courtney Dunn, Yoga Therapist, LPC Psychotherapist
Welcome to Serenity Yoga Therapy
Services I Offer
I am willing to work with you to provide an individual service plan to meet your needs
A Happier, Healthier You
Are you in need of physical and/or mental healing? I provide clients with individualized yoga prescriptions. This is a series of breathing techniques, exercises, yoga postures, and relaxation unique to the each clients' specific needs.
I am aware that the stress of dealing with difficult life situations can manifest itself in maladaptive coping behaviors, depression, and anxiety. This can leave us feeling disconnected from ourselves, others, and the world around us. I believe everyone can find inner peace through connection with the true self. Whether a person is struggling with a certain disorder, a specific challenge in life, making changes, or seeking personal insight and self growth, I can help them find the serenity to live life to its fullest. My experience includes, but is not limited to, working with those suffering from self harmful behaviors, personality disorders, panic, anxiety, depression, negative body image, and eating disorders. I have a passion for helping young adults and teens transition into adulthood. I have an extensive background in providing Dialectical Behavior Therapy and mindfulness therapies.
Here For You
If you are looking to use yoga as an essential tool in your recovery this is a fantastic option. Time in the session is equally spent in yoga therapy and mental health counseling. Discussion on how yoga can be applied on and off the mat takes place.
Convenient, Effective, & Ethical
If you have trouble physically getting to an office due to scheduling, location, or family this could be a wonderful option. I provide counseling to anyone in the state of Texas and coaching worldwide. The same goals and outcomes can be achieved and healing can occur at your convenience. Appointments can be made through the Virtual Therapist Network by typing my name, Courtney Dunn, in the Find a Therapist section, or going to the following link https:///courtney-dunn/
