Whitney worked for six years as a mentor to youth in the community; this experience gave her the opportunity to work with many different families from a variety of backgrounds and lifestyles. Whitney also worked in a treatment center, an inpatient setting, and in homes with adults, youth, and families. Whitney has worked with youth and families for multiple reasons but some include self-esteem, anxiety, identity issues, depression, self-harm, academic struggles, and eating disorders.
Whitney believes in a strength-based approach to counseling. Identifying every individual’s strengths is a huge part of treatment because she believes it empowers the client and gives him or her strength to work through situations both now and in the future. Whitney also believes in a holistic approach because all areas of our lives influence one another. These areas include relationships, self-worth, exercise, academics, and spirituality.
Areas of Focus
I love being outside and connecting with nature. I love being physically active for the mental health benefits, for the balance to my active mind and for fun! I enjoy trail running, hiking, climbing, yoga and snowboarding with friends and family, as well as solo, giving me time to center myself. I love listening to music, and I make it a priority to see live music regularly. I value connecting with others from our true selves and, although this can be challenging at times, I prioritize this type of connection within my relationships.
