COURTNI DOHERTY, MS, CCC-SLP
Owner & Speech-Language Pathologist
I began a career in marketing straight out of college but decided to return to school a year later to pursue my dream of becoming a speech-language pathologist. I completed my post-baccalaureate work and Master of Science while enrolled in Idaho State University’s online program. I have had the opportunity to work in a variety of settings, including school districts, so I know how the system works. I currently live in Auburn with my amazing husband, two little boys, two rescue dogs, and eight chickens. I am a passionate advocate for animal-assisted therapy and miss my buddy, Aiden. I've lived in WA my entire life, and I have too many hobbies to list. I love coffee milkshakes, no matter how cold it is outside.

Hi! I graduated from Walla Walla University with a Bachelors in Fitness Management and then went on to get my Physical Therapist Assistant degree from Carrington College. I have worked in several settings throughout my career including outpatient orthopedics and pediatrics. I am so excited to be a part of the team at CCT with my sister, Courtni. I currently live in North Tacoma, and I enjoy walking around outside by the water and eating at all the great local restaurants. I enjoy being outside and being active, hanging out with my family and friends, and being the best Auntie I can be for my adorable nephew. I love dessert, especially when it's homemade and local.
I am so proud to be working at Circle Creek Therapy with my daughters, Courtni and Kristen. I love getting to know all of the clients and their families by name, and I cherish the opportunities I have to connect with parents. I am a very proud grandma of two adorable little boys. I live in Puyallup with my wonderful husband, who is a recently retired teacher of 42 years. My hobbies include my dog, Harrison, crafting, and spoiling my grandsons.

After working as a hair dresser for 5 years, I found my true passion in speech therapy and helping others be the best versions of themselves.

I enjoy traveling, eating delicious food, entertaining family and friends and outdoor activities.
CARRIE KANE, PT, DPT
Hello! I began my career in Washington before moving to the East Coast, and while both coasts hold people and places we love, we really have a sense of home in Washington. I have over 10 years of experience as a pediatric PT. I believe in treating a child's whole family system, having fun as much as possible, and prioritizing the skills a child needs play with other kids. I love to volunteer with adaptive recreation programs--supporting people to stretch their limits and find adventure. I love to hike and explore with my husband, son, and pup. In the summer, I enjoy training for triathlons. I love cooking, seeking out, and eating delicious food. I am always accepting recommendations for food and hikes to try!
