Courtney Guy is a country girl who loves the simple life, a glass of sav blanc and the SBS Food Channel. Talking is her specialty, ask anyone who knows her! With an undergrad in psychology, she was armed with the education that she thought she needed to enter the world of adolescent mental health. Little did she know that the young people she has worked with over the last three and a half years have taught her more than any textbook ever will. Thank you Courtney, for this insightful Conversation on the Couch.
