Although Whitney is the owner of The Clarity Group Executive Network, her true calling has always been partnering with teens, women and marriages to bring lasting healing to those she served. Her clients immediately feel understood, know a clear path to recovery, and are empowered to rewrite what is possible. She can hear beyond the words to the heart of the pain, often helping clients access deep into their true selves. Individuals experience clarity where there was confusion and fear. It is Whitney’s belief that therapists should offer clients new strategies, implementable tools, exercises, and insights that are immediate and effective, inspiring hope and confidence throughout the process. However, the client should also feel a connection and safety after being heard with compassion.

Quotes from our therapists.
“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.”
Along this journey, it has become abundantly clear that without the dedication, sacrifice, talent, and skills of the Clarity Group community, we would have never come into existence. Every specialist we partnered with brought excellence and a unique contribution to this team. To my husband, daughters, mother, father, sister, Nicole and friend Liesa, we could only create this because of the unyielding love you have shown. At every point in the journey, you knew how to be the strength we needed. And to the original dream team who invested their trust, livlihood and skills in making this group a reality, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. The Clarity Group is as much yours as it is ours. One team, your dreams.
