Dr. Whiten is only accepting a LIMITED NUMBER OF THERAPY CLIENTS as of March 2024. Reach out to see if you are a fit for one of these slots.


If you are looking for coaching (either individual or couples) from Dr. Psych Mom, which is only appropriate if you do not have a diagnosable mental health issue, go here. Coaching can occur in all states and internationally.

All therapy sessions are 45 minutes.  Email me for my rates. If my rates are out of your budget, check out the great clinicians at my group practice, Best Life Behavioral Health. I have clinicians licensed in many states, so reach out and ask me who would work best with you.  I have hired people in order to give you more affordable options.

To see how I create rapid and meaningful change in therapy, read this.  My rates are commensurate with my background and experience as well as work that I will be putting into our time together! Every minute is accounted for and you never leave session without something to work on or think about.  I work hard to bring new insight into our work and the pace proceeds accordingly. If you want a sense of my style, listen to my podcast.

As discussed here, I have been told by clients that they accomplish more in my first session than in months or years in prior therapy. I have formed my style in opposition to the many therapists who engage in primarily supportive listening and teach skills that could be learned effectively for free (e.g., relaxation). I work well with motivated, proactive people. Homework is frequent, whether this is reading, thinking about something differently, or trying out a new behavior.  Sometimes I also have a session with your partner even if we are in individual work, this is up to you and is done to give me 360 degree insight into you. 

do not accept insurance, although you may be able to submit your receipt for reimbursement from your insurance company if you live in any of the many PsyPact states.

Please call your insurance and ask about your reimbursement rates for out-of-network providers.

I have opted out of Medicare and can see Medicare clients if they pay out of pocket and do not submit to Medicare.

Credit card (including HSA or FSA card) is accepted via IvyPay, which is a HIPAA compliant credit card servicing company for therapists.  DocuSign is used for intake forms, and Zoom for video.
