We are very happy to introduce Courtney Remacle, MSW. who joined the Green House in January of this year. We talked to Courtney about their decision to join the Green House and what it means for them.
How did you learn about the Green House?
A former Green House therapist recommended the program to me!
What drew you to the Green House?
I’m deeply interested in depth and psychodynamic therapeutic work—this has been essential in my own healing and also offers a welcome contrast to my graduate training, which was focused on manualized treatments like CBT and DBT. As a queer non-binary person and therapist, I’m specifically interested in serving people with queer and other marginalized identities.
What are you hoping to gain by being in the Green House and how do you imagine it will impact your future?
I’m hoping to deepen my clinical skills, as well as to reflect on who I am in the therapy room and how I show up as a therapist. I believe that healing happens in relationship, and so I’m excited to explore the particularities of what I can offer as a clinician and how I can best be in service to my clients.
In the short amount of time, since you joined the Green House, what has surprised you most and why?
I’ve been really surprised by how open everyone is, and also how different everyone is! It’s really refreshing to be in a professional and learning environment that isn’t all cis white women.
Anything else professionally that you are particularly looking forward to this year?
I’m looking forward to getting my LCSW this spring and to hopefully begin training in psychedelic-assisted therapy.
