We're back this week for episode 6 with special guest Courtney Hart— musician and mental health advocate.
We have a great talk about the nuances of diagnosing and treating OCD and how therapy might (or might not be) involved, vulnerability in music, asking for help, mindfulness tools, and speaking out about mental health.
Content Warning: Brief mentions of suicidal ideation and minor curse words present in the episode.
Courtney Hart’s music has been coined, ‘country-crass meets rock n’ roll sass.’ Her underlying innuendos and cheeky disposition is laced into her lyrics and aesthetic. She is based in Los Angeles, CA, but grew up in a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia.
Her accomplishments include releasing two EPs, with another releasing soon, and performing live at popular Los Angeles venues. As a multi-talented artist, she’s had appearances, as an actress, on ‘The Ellen Show’ and ‘The Young and the Restless.’
Courtney is known for being an advocate for mental health awareness. She takes every opportunity to share her own journey, including in her music. The combination of personality, poetry, and poise make her an on-stage and on-screen sensation you will adore.
