Corey Brown blends wisdom, humility and compassion as an accomplished counselor, teacher, guide, and mentor.
With her natural gift of joyful and trusting connections with others, Corey offers an outstretched hand to anyone who is struggling to regain his or her wild, authentic self.
Through her own personal experiences, education and training, Corey realizes that the solution to most of our challenges come down to the most simple of resolutions:
To acknowledge the goodness of who we were before the world burdened us with its unrealistic and cultural expectations that caused us to disconnect from each other and drift away from the beauty, delight, and celebration a self-actualized life offers.
The need to connect with our true, lovable selves so that we can then connect, with faith and love, to those we meet along the way as we journey through this sacred life.
Joy comes from the courage to fully experience our feelings including sorrow, pain, and suffering. These feelings, particularly the intense ones, are pathways toward fertile ground, which nurtures deep connection to others and ourselves.
Through guided experiences — ancient, new, and ever-unfolding — Corey offers unconditional understanding and empathy through one-on-one counseling, groups, classes, ritual and ceremony in a safe and sacred environment.
Those who work with her know two things (at least) to be true:
- Through a trusting relationship with Corey, you can embark on a courageous voyage to revivify your true and lovable self.
- Throughout this journey, Corey will safely guide you through the inevitable stumbles along the way while offering an outstretched hand if you fall.
