Meet Terri L White of White Diamond Counseling Consulting Coaching

Today we’d like to introduce you to Terri L White.

Terri, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
With a background in business management and working over 20 years with nonprofits, my assistant at Head Start encouraged me to go to school for counseling and took notice of my counseling style in working with families and staff. When I realized I would be working with families in ministry, I felt I needed the knowledge of counseling.

I started working in community based counseling but my desire was still working with families as a unit. I started formulating my practice in 2015, when I became fully licensed. I subleased an office suite from my supervisor for two days a week for one year at which time I had grown to needing more days and then moved into my own small suite for one year. In that year I grew and was able to move into my own building. I now sub-lease space to other therapists, hired a licensed therapist, interns and I am continuing to grow and in need of another therapist.

In January 2019, I just published my 2nd book, From a Mother to a Warrior.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
My biggest challenges has been personal and was not related to my profession as a counselor at all. My book, From a Mother to a Warrior tells the story of my losses, being almost homeless, relationship issues in my marriage, and challenges with raising kids while trying to finish school. Needing a counselor while counseling others is something I am all too aware of but have proven to help me overcome in so many ways.

Please tell us about White Diamond Counseling Consulting Coaching.
White Diamond Counseling Consulting Coaching started as a solo private practice and within three years transitioned to a group practice that focus on the family system. I have many arms within my practice which includes training and supervising interns and postgraduates, consulting nonprofits and businesses on development and growth and training other professionals.

My practice aims to provide quality therapeutic service to the whole family with therapist that specialize in specific areas such as teens, elementary school aged, young adults, single parents, and couples. We utilize a team approach with the family.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
I would have gotten a coach or mentor before starting my practice and established the practice for the group practice it is moving to instead of the solo practice.
