We caught up with Courtney this week.

SDTC: What are the benefits of crystal therapy and why is it something we should try? 

CT: There are so many benefits and absolutely no harm in trying this form of therapy if you are open to exploring a different style of healing. Crystals can be used for most emotional and physical ailments, and there are virtually no harmful risks. It’s a win-win! 

What made you realize you wanted to specialize in this line of work? 

I had quite the journey. From being a publicist in the entertainment industry to social work, and now growing rapidly as a psychic, my journey has taught me so much. I was missing out and had a need to be giving back, helping people, being a part of communities and making a difference.

I knew since I was a little girl that I was different. I remember the very first time I woke up in the middle of the night and at the end of my bed there was a shadow of a little boy. My pets were staring at it and howling. Most people would be afraid, but I’ve always embraced my guides. I truly, truly trust them. I started doing readings and word quickly spread until I got headhunted by some big psychic networks, and I’m still growing today! 

What if I have anxiety or depression? Will it work for me? 

I love this question as anxiety and depression is what got me here in the first place. Most of the clientele I work with have encountered panic or overwhelming sleepless nights in our time working together. My crystal therapy starts from session one. As soon as I place a crystal from the healing family in their receiving hand (opposite to your dominant writing hand), I can see them calm right down. So, absolutely yes!

Crystals are really great for emotional stability. I always start my clients off slow and then introduce crystals as they get the hang of using them. Amethyst is one of my faves for emotional challenges and combating anxiety. 

What is one common misconception about holistic therapy that you would like to clear up? 

I’m a huge advocate not only for myself but also for my clients. I think it is extremely important to do your research and look at the risks. I encourage the people who have not yet tried any sort of holistic therapy and only use traditional medicine to give this a try in addition to what they are already doing. With such low risks, one could be missing out on some life-changing benefits.

I’ve seen magic happen with the use of crystals. One of my clients recently shared with me that one day she wasn’t carrying them on her; she felt so offbeat and her day was just not the same.

What is the most rewarding part of working in this biz? 

The closure and peace I get to offer someone is something that just doesn’t have a price tag. I feel extremely blessed that I get to be part of so many people’s journeys and that clients allow me to see so much of them. I love my clients, the trust I build with each one, and the growth I watch from behind the scenes. I’m just so proud all of the time!

I was in a grocery store recently and an older lady was behind me with yellow roses. I got this heavy pull from her late husband in spirit who needed me to pass along a message. I turned around and said, “Your husband is so happy you are buying yourself these yellow roses.” The women paused for a moment before bursting into tears. Everyone looked at me like I was nuts of course, but I quickly yelped, “No fear, I’m a psychic!” She was so grateful and responded by admitting she hadn’t been able to have yellow roses in her home until that day. We hugged it out and she was overwhelmed with joy. THAT is why I love what I do. There is nothing more priceless. 

What can guests expect at your upcoming Instagram Live Q&A Session? 

One of my very favourite things to do are live social media events. It gives people who are interested and who haven’t chatted with me before a preview of who I am and what I have to offer. The event runs for an hour. I go into these events with nothing prepared and go with the energy that my audience brings. Bring all your questions as I’m answering them live! I always like to share some of my favourite tips and tricks as well. Make sure to tune in!
