Corie B. Weathers
I'm passionate about helping people. Whether it's a personal goal, or learning how to work together as a couple or team- I help people build strong, balanced relationships with themselves and others. A licensed counselor by trade, and an Army spouse, I specialize in helping military and first responder families excel. The more I study and teach about healthy relationships, the more inspired I am to share the powerful messages that have saved countless marriages and transformed hundreds of lives.
Corie Weathers, licensed professional counselor (LPC), is a sought-after speaker, consultant and author of Sacred Spaces: My Journey to the Heart of Military Marriage. Corie has focused her career for the last 15 years as a counselor specializing in marriage, divorce, women's issues, PTSD, and substance abuse. Together, she and her husband Matthew, a US Army Chaplain, have worked as a team to support service members and families involved with the War on Terrorism. In 2015, Corie was named the 2015 Armed Forces Insurance Military Spouse of the Year® where she advocated for mental health issues and served as a media correspondent writing online and print publications, consulting for command teams, and speaking to groups on issues like PTSD, grief, and marriage. She traveled to Turkey, Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Persian Gulf with Secretary of Defense Ash Carter to visit troops and see deployment conditions.
"Sacred spaces dips into places in my own Army marriage experience that I have never had the right words to tackle. When Corie said "yes" to visiting Afghanistan with the Secretary of Defense, she was able to gain a window into the deployment experience on behalf of all civilian military spouses everywhere. We will probably never have the chance Corie did to visit the places where our own marriages and military lives were forever changed and learn these things firsthand. In this book, Corie shares insights we can bring into our own hearts to see our own relationships with new eyes." - Amy Buschatz, editor, SpouseBUZZ
