Courtenay Houk (she/they)

Accepting Clients

I am a queer, femme, Third Culture clinician offering somatic and relational telehealth services to adult individuals and relationships.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in California

About My Clients

My clients are motivated, complex thinkers and deep feelers. They are curious about their bodies and the innate intelligence they hold within themselves. They are determined to shift and influence long-standing patterns they have formed over time, that are no longer satisfying to them. They are wanting to generate experiences for themselves in which they have more freedom, agency, and choice.

My Background and Approach

As a Third Culture clinician, it is my understanding that we as humans show up in different ways, with different people. Often, these patterns arise spontaneously in the therapeutic relationship. My somatically-informed, relational approach to therapy is tailor-suited with experiential tools to support you with forming a bridge between your conscious and unconscious realities, thereby supporting you with growing possibilities for yourself that are potentially more satisfying and rich.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Two personal beliefs sit at the base of my work. First, is the belief that there is no 'right' way to be human. Second, is the belief that the body is a powerful means through which to explore and unpack unconscious processes.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
