Cortney Budney is a Certified Holistic Health Coach and Motivational Speaker. She currently works out of her office in downtown Frederick, MD seeing private coaching clients. Cortney is also available for motivational speeches and workshops in schools, companies, churches, and other facilities with an interest. She has a knack for helping people determine how they can get what they want out of life by implementing more positive, healthy, and beneficial daily practices.
Cortney helps people to overcome anxiety, stress, fatigue, weight issues, relationship struggles, the effects of trauma, eating disorders, self-harm, depression, lack of purpose, and much more. Cortney also works with people in helping them to achieve life goals and conquer their fears. She works with adults, teens, children, and families. Cortney works specifically with teens and young adults in finding self-love, healing from self-harm like cutting and eating disorders, reduction of anxiety of fear, and goal setting and accomplishment. She also works with children, teens, and families who have dealt with or are dealing with trauma.
Cortney's approach is alternative and open minded. She understands that each person is unique and we all have different tastes, preferences, lifestyles, past experiences, beliefs, and body types. Therefore, there is no one answer. Cortney handles all speaking engagements and workshops with this understanding.
Cortney received her Health Coaching Certification from the prestigious Institute for Integrative Nutrition in NY. Cortney has been trained in hundreds of dietary theories and spiritual practices and therefore, is able to implement a very well rounded approach for her clients. In addition, she spends much of her time studying and growing her knowledge through personal research, participating in different courses and workshops, and working with other alternative practitioners in her area.
Cortney experienced trauma and abuse as a young child. She was severely OCD and had anxiety and panic attacks every day of her life up until the age of 27. Cortney was bulimic for 2 years and also spent a short time cutting. Cortney was overweight most of her life and was very unpopular in school. She was subject to a lot of ridicule and was made fun of on an almost daily basis. These experiences created a lot of anxiety, fear, dependence on others for love, and self-loathing that lasted through early adulthood. Since her life and mind were so full of anxiety and fear, Cortney spent much of her time, even as a child, dreaming about finding a man who would love her and therefore make her feel whole, loved and worthy.
Through a dedicated personal journey of healing and learning to love and believe in herself, Cortney has become a completely different person. She used to live her life in fear and was not able to follow any dreams as she was to scared to make "the leap." She now owns her own business and is following her dreams every day with continued belief and knowing that she is capable, passionate, and knowledgeable enough to help adults, teens, and children change their lives. Cortney has healed her bulimia, cutting, and is about 80% better regarding the OCD and severe anxiety. Many of these things were accomplished in one year's time. Cortney is aware of who she is as a person and is now not afraid to look deep within and understand what is going on in her mind, body, and spirit. Cortney has learned that no other person can do the job of making her feel loved and accepted and that she is fully responsible to love herself. She is now completely accepting and in love with who she is as a person.
Cortney gives speeches and workshops to help others experience their own personal healing journey. Since Cortney is aware every individual is different, she will never tell someone that there is one answer for them. She will impart wisdom, encouragement, personal examples, a listening ear, love, and understanding to help them to find the answers from within.
