Courtney Traber, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor; Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapist
Austin TX
My approach to therapy is tailored to and shaped by each client I encounter. I appreciate the uniqueness and complexity of each client’s inner world, as well as the inherent dilemmas of being human. I strive to meet you where you are, just as you are, and join with you as an ally in your healing process. My aim is to encourage each client’s movement toward genuine self-understanding and wholeness. I believe in the idea that the problematic behaviors/thoughts/beliefs we experience emerged at some point in our lives in order to help us to cope and survive. Keeping this in mind, I work to assist clients in exploring these patterns with compassion and curiosity so that they can ultimately move out of survival reactions and into more mindful responses to life that are aligned with fulfillment, joy, and balance.
I received my Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from The University of North Texas in 2017 after completing my undergraduate degree in Psychology at Baylor University. I have provided care within psychiatric inpatient, residential, intensive outpatient, and private practice environments. These roles have provided me with competencies in the treatment and care of individuals experiencing substance abuse issues, mood disturbances, acute and chronic suicidality, traumatic responses, and psychotic episodes. I have also received specialized experience and training in ACT, CBT, DBT, and mindfulness-based approaches. I specialize in Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy and have facilitated 1000+ Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy sessions as well as the accompanying preparation and integration sessions. I work primarily with the treatment-resistant populous, meaning, clients who have tried multiple routes of psychological and medication therapies with little to no relief or resolution of their symptoms.
