Whitney Davis


Mental Health Counselor

Relationship & Intimacy Specialist

Whitney is passionate about helping her clients heal and grow under the most difficult and painful life circumstances. She believes that no matter what brings you to therapy, having an empathic, compassionate and non-judgmental therapist can make all the difference in your journey to wellness. She believes in helping each of her clients by using a holistic lens that sees them for all of who they are- not just their diagnosis or presenting concern. Whitney makes it a priority to understand and honor each person’s unique experiences, perspectives, identities, and world view. She makes sure her clients feel heard, seen, and understood by using a warm and collaborative client-centered therapeutic approach.

Whitney enjoys working with both individuals and couples. She specializes in trauma therapy, sexuality concerns, chronic illness/pain, and betrayal trauma resulting from infidelity. Her other areas of focus include depression, anxiety, identity exploration, body image, women’s health, navigating difficult life transitions, and healthy communication/boundary setting. If you are looking to work towards healing in any aspect of your life, she would love to have the opportunity to support you.

Couples Therapy

Whitney extends her expertise to couples therapy, offering valuable insight and strategies to enhance communication and connection between partners. Whether it's addressing concerns within the relationship dynamics or creating a safe space for open dialogue, Whitney is committed to helping couples build stronger, more fulfilling relationships. Through supportive techniques and personalized interventions, she aims to foster not only a satisfying sex life but also a harmonious and resilient relationship for couples. In her approach, Whitney uses empirically based approaches such as the Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, to help couples deepen their relationship, reignite intimacy, or repair the emotional wounds caused by intimate betrayal. Meeting each couple where they are, she crafts a tailored path forward to address their unique needs. Recognizing the significance of honesty, vulnerability, and the process of making meaning from events that led to broken trust, Whitney emphasizes these elements as critical to repairing relationships. Her guidance extends beyond the resolution of immediate issues, fostering both individual and collective growth for couples.

Sex Therapy

Whitney has received advanced training in sex therapy. She helps individuals and couples facing challenges in intimacy and sex due to a variety of reasons. Perhaps one of you is struggling with arousal difficulties, painful sex, trouble with orgasm, or other sexual concerns. Maybe differences in your levels of desire are leading to feelings of rejection, inadequacy, or guilt. It's also possible that you don't desire sex at all and that is causing problems in your relationship. If you find that you are avoiding discussions about sex or struggling to communicate with each other in a constructive way, Whitney will guide you through safe and productive conversations that can lead to a pleasurable and uncomplicated sex life. She can help alleviate the stress and sense of obligation that may be interfering with your sexual well-being, all while providing supportive techniques to achieve a joyful and fun sex life.

Betrayal Trauma Therapy

Whitney understands the devastating impact of intimate betrayal and the toll it takes mentally and physically on a hurting partner. She knows the excessive rumination, vigilance, and intense range of emotions that follow once relational betrayal is discovered and can provide effective strategies to help you regain your sense of self in the aftermath. When working with hurting partners, Whitney uses the Posttraumatic Growth Model for Intimate Betrayal to help alleviate trauma symptoms, manage trauma triggers and reactions, calm obsessive thoughts, create emotional balance, heal core wounds that arise, move through the grief process, connect with your self-worth, and help you regain peace and stability in your life. 

Chronic Pain & Illness

Whitney has a special interest in working with individuals and couples where chronic pain or illness is a presenting concern. She understands how the cycle of pain and illness can impact a person across all aspects of life (physically, emotionally, professionally, and more), as well as greatly impact a person's relationships with the people they care about most. Chronic pain or illness may often go hand in hand with feelings of shame, guilt, grief, depression, anxiety, and result in a fractured sense of identity. In both individual and couple's cases where chronic pain or illness is involved, Whitney will work with you to co-create a holistic approach to treatment that instills hope, honors the mind-body connection, and takes measured, meaningful steps towards resolution of the social and emotional consequences of chronic pain and illness. She has extensive training in several empirical treatments including DBT, CBT and ACT. She is committed to meeting her clients where they are at in order to provide the best care possible.

Whitney works remotely to provide HIPAA-compliant telehealth sessions, which means you can attend private and secure sessions from the comfort of home. She is currently available to support clients who live in Washington.
