Hi, I'm Courtenay

I am passionate about working with couples and individuals in growing a greater sense of influence in their lives. 

By tapping into the language of your body, I can support you in becoming fluent with yourself. In learning your own language, you grow a level of agency that not only influences how you experience yourself, but how you live yourself. 

As a clinician, I am attentive, direct, curious and playful. Particularly in my work with couples, I have found that a playful approach can be supportive in nervous system regulation and building intimacy between partners. I am best suited for clients who want a therapist that can both hold them accountable and hold them when life feels overwhelming.

I currently offer teletherapy exclusively, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
