Traumatic grief is one of the most difficult aspects of post-trauma life. Survivors grieve their lost selves, the inaction, the changes trauma has brought, the others who may have been hurt at the same time, etc. An inability to overcome traumatic grief can drastically impede recovery, which makes learning how to transform it so very important.
Tonight, on ‘Your Life After Trauma’ Courtney Armstrong, Anxiety, Trauma and Grief Counselor, will tell us about her special approach to ‘Transforming Traumatic Grief’ and Nicole Bissett, a survivor who will share her personal story of how she transformed her traumatic grief in a big way.

Courtney Armstrong is a Licensed Professional Counselor who specializes in Anxiety, Trauma and Grief Therapy. After receiving a Master’s degree in Counseling from the University of New Orleans in 1995, Courtney worked with inner-city kids in New Orleans. Many of these kids had been in gangs, and had seen an incredible amount of loss and trauma. This experience had a great impact on and broadened Courtney’s understanding of the effects of violence, trauma, and grief.
Courtney moved to Chattanooga in 1997 and worked as a therapist with a local psychiatric hospital for several years, and did some work as a consultant for a disability insurance company. Courtney learned even more about the tremendous effect unresolved anxiety, grief, and trauma can have on a person’s mental and physical well-being. Still Courtney wondered why we couldn’t get people more complete relief. Believing integrative medicine may offer some solutions, she pursued training in biofeedback, hypnosis, and provided counseling in a physician’s office that supported mind-body medicine,
In 2007, Courtney discovered Rapid Resolution Therapy®, which finally produced the kind of results she wanted for clients. She is now considered a Master Practitioner in Rapid Resolution Therapy®, and is training other therapists how to use this powerful approach.
Courtney says, “I now know it does not have to take years to ‘get over’ trauma, and the possibilities of what we can do with our lives are endless, no matter what our history was.”
