Community Highlights: Meet Courtney Morgan of Elevating Her

Today we’d like to introduce you to Courtney Morgan.

Hi Courtney, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers.
I have always been interested in helping people but I didn’t know in what capacity. I obtained my Bachelor’s in Psychology from Morgan State University as I was fascinated by how the mind works. At one point, I thought I wanted to be a forensic psychologist but the career outlook wasn’t great. I was interested in psychiatric nursing as well but quickly learned I wasn’t quite interested in a nursing career.

Then, I did my research and found out about the field of social work and I was sold. My journey as a Mom and wife helped me narrow my focus down to providing services strictly for women. I wanted to be a safe space for women, moms, and those struggling to become moms to talk about their issues and their journeys without judgment. I wanted them to be able to walk away not feeling disempowered but feeling empowered, confident, and motivated.

We all face challenges, but would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
The journey has not been a smooth one as life gets in the way. Being a married, working mom is not easy by any means. You are constantly juggling multiple things and struggling to prioritize while still sometimes left feeling like you aren’t doing enough at the same time.

As you know, we’re big fans of Elevating Her. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about the brand?
Elevating Her provides therapy, coaching, and yoga and creates a safe space for women and moms dealing with life transitions and women’s issues including anxiety, depression, perinatal mental health, fertility issues, etc. Our owner, Courtney Morgan, LCSW-C specializes in perinatal health. I am most proud of using my struggles to be a light to other women who need them.

Where do you see things going in the next 5-10 years?
I see the mental health industry becoming even less stigmatized and people being more open to talking about it.
