Whitney Fortner, LMSW


Hello! I am a Licensed Master Social Worker with a focus in Veterinary Social Work. I love to integrate the human-animal bond into my work as a therapist. I have special training in animal-assisted therapy and have a therapy dog available at my practice. I have experience with a variety of treatment topics. I love to work with clients to help process grief, loss, and life transitions. I also have special experience working with individuals experiencing pet loss, which is often an overlooked or undervalued treatment area.
