Whitney’s approach to therapy is collaborative and client centered. She believes that we all have what we need within us to grow, change, and thrive. Whitney has seen that change happens when people feel heard and understood and believes a safe therapeutic relationship is vital to this journey. Whitney strives to provide an empathetic, warm, nonjudgmental space to be able to work together toward each individual’s goals.

Whitney approaches counseling with a Family Systems perspective, stemming from her training in Marriage and Family Therapy, as well as pulling from CBT, DBT and strength-based counseling. Whitney believes highly in the use of humor and vulnerability in counseling.
