Cortney Warren Speaker

"I'll help you change. I will tell you the truth about how you keep yourself stuck and I will show you what it costs. You want better employees, you want more money, you want more property, you want to be more successful, you want better relationships and a happier work environment. I can teach you how to get more of that for yourself.

But you have to be willing to look in the mirror.

It's not going to be easy for you. In fact, it's going to be hard. But the end result is going to be well worth your time."

A natural intellect. A natural teacher.  A natural communicator and collaborator.  For me, all that and more describes my professional experience with Dr. Cortney Warren.  Her understanding of the human condition eclipses her substantial academic and clinical training to allow a lay person to quickly grasp who they are and how they might be deceiving themselves.  From academic to application, Dr. Warren’s gifts to personal understanding are a gift to us all.

TED Talk Watcher & Book Reader

I found your TED talk on youtube and quite literally watched it a few dozen times. You helped me to look at myself and to start asking questions about my choices. I can see now how they have hurt so many people, family, and friends. I'm growing stronger and more self-aware by the day. I know that I have many repairs to make to relationships but first, need to continue to repair "me". Having heard your words I can now confidently see that I will be fine again. 

Assistant Professor of Philosophy

Was attracted to tears of authenticity in your talk TEDx. I have never seen any human ingrained so deep in truth.


Dr. Warren challenges audiences to see how they keep themselves stuck. For Psychology is the study of human nature. It is relevant to every human being living on this planet because it is the study of people. It is the study of you.

And people can have more of what they want and less of what they don’t want by changing the only thing they have complete control over in this entire world—themselves.
