I'm Whitney!  Your Climbing Out Coach.

At Climbing Out Solutions, you will find a genuine walking partner on your road to healing. I bring to my practice a combination of lived experience, in-depth academic study, and relevant career work, which leads me to engage with clients from a place of compassion, focus, and advocacy.

She brings to her practice a combination of lived experience, in-depth academic study, and relevant career work, empowering her to engage clients from a place of compassion, focus, and advocacy. Her wholehearted belief is that every adversity serves as a means to sharpen you, refine you, and propel you forward in your purpose. Whitney will work to ensure that a relevant and individualized plan to address the barriers to recovery you may be facing is created, and to connect you with necessary community resources. She will come alongside you as you process through what may feel like your greatest mountain, brushing off the rubble from which you have emerged to reveal the overcomer within.

Let’s climb together.

"There was an instantaneous connection when I started working with Whitney several months ago. I came to Whitney after 2 failed attempts at therapy, for my own resistance, and I wasn’t that confident in myself that I’d stick with it this time. Whitney has challenged me to shift my thought process and/or perspectives for more insight and awareness into myself. She’s allowed me to get off track and then pulls me back. She’s creative in her approach and flexible in her thinking. Most importantly she’s allowed me to be me, in all of my mess, I’m comfortable and I know she gets “it”. She has a warmth and genuine vibe that’s hard to come by. I’m on a journey and I know she’s with me."   - Anonymous
