Specialty Services

Hello! My name is Whitney and my pronouns are she/her/hers. I am an Advanced Practice Social Worker working at the Madison and Baraboo offices. I’m passionate about others’ well-being, and I am so excited to be joining the Pauquette Center family to continue to grow as a therapist. I believe in each person’s ability to achieve their goals, hopes, and dreams.

One of my top priorities as a therapist is to provide an inclusive and affirmative environment for people, recognizing all of their identities. I currently specialize in affirmative therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and strengths-based therapy. I will align my treatment methods to each clients’ needs. My experience includes working with the LGBTQIA+ population, people with borderline personality disorder, and adults with developmental disabilities.
