Hi, I'm Whitney!

I'm a counselor and coach and there is nothing more compelling to me than sparking hope and seeing real change happen for people. It is my privilege to bring compassion and understanding to the most tender spaces of people's lives. 

 

I've professionally counseled and coached women and men since 2010.

Everyone is nervous when trying something new, but I'm here to help so you don't have to figure it out by yourself. I'd love to meet together to bring more LIFE to your everyday reality.

I frequently do training clients on the following issues:

  • Anxiety, stress, or overwhelm

  • Feeling stuck in life and not accomplishing your goals
    and dreams

  • Feeling stuck in a job, or work burnout

  • Figuring out what to do with your life

  • Loneliness or isolation

  • Self-esteem and self-worth

Coaching is perfect for women and men who want to stop going in circles and start moving forward on their goals. They want to fulfill their promises to themselves to live a more fulfilling life. Coaching is for individuals who have identified a goal (write a book, improve job performance, get a promotion, gain self-confidence, be less stressed, become more organized, develop healthier habits, become happier in life, etc. 

We'll work together to create strategy, momentum, new habits, and accountability so you can begin to reach your goals!

*Coaching for adults located in the U.S. or internationally

What is my counseling approach?

 

I believe we all came into this world with the important core needs of being fully loved and fully safe. Because the world is a flawed place, we've all been disappointed, wounded, or hurt in one way or another. Our earliest experiences and relationships have shaped us: how we think of ourselves, how we relate to other people, and our understanding of the world. In our time together we'll address deep issues of shame, heart-ache, self-hatred, anger, fear, and other themes that may be affecting your current life.

My approach to counseling has been influenced by Dan Allender, Sue Johnson, and Bessel van der Kolk, to name a few. I use a diversified approach that weaves together deep therapeutic work and practical interventions so clients can receive long-term healing and get help today. I also use body-centered techniques like EMDR and other somatic protocols.
