About Whitney Jennings

Feel stagnant in your relationship? Can't stop fighting with your partner? Or maybe you want to strengthen your connection? You love your partner but there are still some nagging issues that get in the way of having the type of fulfilling relationship you desire. Some challenges exist that you two can’t quite agree on.

I believe you can never have too many issues for counseling. If such is the case, what would be the alternative? Not seek help at all? It is important to understand that counseling is a journey. Counseling is not about getting "fixed," but instead about self-exploration, self-discovery, and... more

It is absolutely normal to cry at therapy! It is common for a client to cry during a session. Crying can be therapeutic, especially for someone who is used to not allowing him/herself to feel his/her feelings. I create a safe space in order for you to be able to share your tears, as well as... more
