Courtenay Houk (she/they), MA, AMFT

I am a trauma-informed Somatic Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (AMFT) specializing in the Formative method and practicing remotely via telehealth. 

I hold a clinical Master's degree in Counseling Psychology and Somatic Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco. In addition to maintaining a telehealth practice for California, I am currently pursuing research-focused doctoral studies in Somatic Psychology. 

My former career was in the fast-paced language service industry, where I came to specialize in multilingual translation project management and localization. I am a queer femme who grew up as a Third Culture Kid, living in China and the Navajo Nation during my formative years, and I speak Mandarin as my second language. Due to these experiences, I am no stranger to the intersections of language, culture, identity, transition, relationships, and somatic embodiment. I take joy in supporting my clients with exploring and integrating layers of identity and experience. Please click here to read more about my areas of specialty.

I received training from the Center for Somatic Psychotherapy in San Francisco where I worked as a Trainee, and am currently employed by the Center for Mindful Psychotherapy in San Francisco, California where I work as an Associate MFT. I am supervised by Christina Loeffel, LMFT #29127 and Scott Balderson, LMFT# 34280.
