About Courageous Healing's New Building:
Courageous Healing Inc. recently announced its new physical location to give communities of color a space to heal and thrive.
The building, located at 2013 South Anthony Blvd, is the official continuation effort of owners, Janell and Aaron Lane, to provide quality counseling and mental health wellness to BIPOC communities in Fort Wayne. We believe that by making mental wellness accessible, affordable, and culturally-centered, we will contribute to both the empowerment and liberation of the communities we serve.
Having a physical space will enable us to align our services with the unique challenges people of color experience, such as the stigma of mental illness, distrust of systems, lack of culturally competent providers, and lack of adequate insurance.
Generations of navigating systemic, institutional, and internalized racism deserve the space, the tools, the balm, and the healing agents that are long overdue to BIPOC communities. We are committed to changing the perception of mental and emotional healing through:
Cultural competency: People seek therapists who celebrate their identities; finding them should not be an overwhelming task. We aim to make this process simple and safe. Our therapists are culturally responsive, from diverse disciplines and backgrounds allowing them to address the complexities of their clients' identities in an affirming and responsive way.
Accessibility: Upholding economic equity is essential to us. We will offer therapy on a sliding fee scale for clients who are uninsured, underinsured, and who demonstrate financial need, as well as providing services for those who have private insurance or the means to self-pay. The addition of the facility provides our clients with the option of engaging in teletherapy, in-person therapy services, or a combination of both with sensitivity to COVID-19 recommendations and protocols.
Spaces as sanctuary: We take pride in offering a variety of confidential therapeutic services including group therapy, specialized workshops, events, as well as individual, couples, and family therapy in a confidential and safe setting. The building will be warm, supportive, with a healing environment in which clients feel safe strengthening, unlocking, and building upon the skills that they already possess to manifest the changes they want to see in their lives.
