Today we’d like to introduce you to Cortina Peters.
Cortina, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
My story is one with many twists and turns. To begin, my name is Cortina Peters, a.k.a. The Girlfriend Therapist. I am a Licensed mental health counselor in private practice. I am dually licensed in both Fl and Ga. I am the owner of Boundless Living Coaching Counseling & Consulting, a specialty counseling firm that deals with the emotional aspect of one’s life. I am also a published author, motivational strategist, life coach and mentor. In my career, I’ve held many positions. At the height of my career in corporate America, I took a leap of faith a decided that I would no longer work for anyone except myself. With that decision, I left corporate America and decided to pursue my passion for entrepreneurship full time. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. That is how I ended up where I am today.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
As a (2) two-time cancer survivor and lupus warrior, I know what it is to see life in a different way. The road to success hasn’t always been the easiest. When I felt as though I was on the right track, it felt as if something would come along to distract my forward progress. I noticed that when I allowed myself to be flexible and free flow, I was better able to deal with unfortunate situations in my life. It is such a blessing to even have this opportunity and still be alive today. It is my mission to ensure that through my work, I help to provide hope to others in dark places. Additionally, with challenges comes the emotional side of self-doubt, self-sabotaging behaviors, and the negative narratives we play over in our heads about our success. I remember when the door to my six-figure salary closed, I was stuck. I thought I would panic and go crazy, but I didn’t. I felt in my heart that something greater was coming and one day, it did. Working through those issues has allowed me to get to a place where I am able to identify when I am operating from a place that is unproductive to my growth as an individual and as a business owner. As we travel this journey called life, we must remember to give ourselves grace.
Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?

We’d be interested to hear your thoughts on luck and what role, if any, you feel it’s played for you?
I have been very blessed on my journey. I say that because I have been able to overcome to some incredibly challenging obstacles that have been placed in my path. No matter what trials I come up against, I have always ended up on top. I believe in taking the good from unfortunate situations and leaving the bad. Honestly, I think you get back what you put out. I commit myself to remain humble while always striving to be the best version of myself. I surround myself with good energy and I am conscious of the decisions I make. Every past chapter in the book of my life has prepared me for the next chapter. Looking back over my life, I would have to say that there is nothing that I would change. Everything I experienced and went through; has made me the person I am today.
