Hayley Whitman is a Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) and Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), focusing on relationship work, couples, families, as well as individuals. She has offices in Hudson and Cuyahoga Falls. Hayley has experience working with marital, pre-marital, couples, family, parenting/child, and groups. She is comfortable seeing multiple clients simultaneously in the office (such as parents and their child). She also works with individuals and groups struggling with a variety of mental health issues, especially symptoms from trauma (post-traumatic stress disorder),mood disorders (depression, anxiety, bipolar), and personality disorders.
Hayley earned a Bachelor of Arts from Otterbein University in Psychology, Sociology, and Women’s Studies and Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy and Clinical Mental Health Counseling at the University of Akron. Her clinical internship was completed at the Chima Clinic for Individual and Family Counseling and Greenleaf Family Center.
Hayley’s perspective considers each individual from a bio-psycho-social-spiritual model to look at the whole person and their connection to their body, emotions, family/friends, and spirituality. By trying first to understand each person, it is her belief individuals can experience real healing and move forward from whatever is keeping them “stuck.” Hayley’s style is a blend of compassion, humor, and straightforward talk.
Hayley is a member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, Family Teams Network, and the Sexual Assault Coalition of Akron.
Hayley has experience leading therapy groups for adults and children and providing education for large groups on communication and improving relationships.
