Welcome to OCC! My name Whitnee and I am the owner and therapist of Onward Clearing Counseling. My goal is always to help you activate the best version of yourself. Though I believe the relationship experience is a shared one, I also know our individual paths are a critical component to how we act, react, love, and live in our shared journey with one another. In order to optimize your journey with your partner, I utilize a number of treatment modalities designed to maximize your "insight toolbox.”

An insight toolbox is a set of skills unique to you that work towards your continued growth and connection. In mastering those tools, we can hone in on what is most important to you and your goals moving forward.

If you are as passionate about wholeness and balance as I am, I would love to work with you.

"Step into the fire of 
self-discovery. This fire will not burn you, it will only burn what you are not." -Mooji



Originally from Southern California, I grew up as a military brat. I’ve had the opportunity to live in different places and experience different walks of life. This experiential diversity has helped cultivate a greater sense of empathy and attunement with my clients and the work that we do. I recognize that each person has unique qualities and insights that should be honored through the therapeutic process. 

When I’m not at work, you can catch me at a great taco and margarita place or walking my two dogs - Emma and Callee. And of course, I’m always in the mood for spending precious time with my family. When I’m zoning out (yes, therapists can zone out too), I’m a sucker for reality TV, rainy days, and fire places.
