Allowing a therapist to see you (or trusting a therapist to work with someone you love) is an incredibly vulnerable experience. Becoming a wife and a mother of two young daughters profoundly changed the way Whitney approaches individuals and families. The process of loving a spouse, mother, child or friend through life’s challenges has opened her eyes to the enormous trust required to invite a voice of healing and direction into your life or the life of someone important to you. She approaches each person’s story with tremendous respect and reverence, opening her mind and heart to see the world through their eyes. She is constantly amazed by her clients’ sincerity and courage to open themselves up to something new after coming to a place of dissatisfaction or simply wondering if there could be more to their lives or relationships. She is deeply grateful to all the parents, husbands, wives, friends, partners, schools and organizations that have trusted her to be involved, holding their trust in the highest regard and honoring their investment along the way.
Above all, Whitney strongly believes that every human heart is longing to be known, heard and valued. Her greatest work is walking clients back to core emotions, while accessing safer forms of expression to the people they love. Clients leave each session with immediate and practical strategies to increase strength, peace and freedom. For over ten years, Whitney has had a profound impact on the lives of teens, women and marriages. She comes alongside those in pain with strength, sincerity, compassion and a deep love for the work and people she serves. She has created a dedicated clientele of those ready to change and explore the places in their lives that have been avoided or affected by depression and anxiety.
Whitney received a Bachelor’s degree in Christian Educational Ministry from Taylor University and a Master’s degree in Counseling from Denver Seminary. She is a Licensed Professional Counselor through the state of Colorado as well as being a Nationally Certified Counselor. After completing her degree, she became a Multi-Systemic Therapist who created an expertise working with teens, women and couples facing life’s challenges. The systemic dynamic adds a consideration of how the individual operates within relationships and challenges the client to interact in a new way. With therapy, the client should not just be healing personally, but should see improvements in important relationships along the way. Whitney stays on the cutting edge of therapy, learning evidence based models that are proven to enhance therapeutic outcomes. She is trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, a trauma and anxiety approach and Emotional Focused Therapy, a model used to help clients function in a more healthy way with the people they love.
Whitney is a sought after community speaker who frequently addresses fellow parents, women’s groups, retreats, marriage seminars and communities of faith. She powerfully challenges her audiences to see value in their pain, while taking steps towards trusting and showing grace towards themselves and others. She creates and relays tangible models to facilitate change and empower new behaviors. Armed with these insights, people walk away regaining a sense of peace and hope.
