Dr. Alfred White, Jr.

(LPC-S, LMFT-S, Ph.D.)

About Me

With over 26 years of experience, I work with everyday people on everyday life issues and challenges. My purpose is to assist individuals identify and work towards living the lifestyle that brings them the most joy and fulfillment. My philosophy is that at each individual's core exists knowledge of one's ideal self for every life area, relationship involved, and role played. Through consultations one's ideal selves and desired lifestyles are identified,, as well as both the obstacles and paths associated with the attainment and maintaining of the identified ideal selves and desired lifestyles

Consultations are a collaborative team effort. As a "Life Consultant" my role is to ask the questions that assist in the reflection, awareness, and identification of the client's desired lifestyle and ideal self for every life area, the acceptance of who and where they at this moment in life, and the feedback, support, and encouragement needed for success.

Life areas in which Consultations may be engaged include relationships with family, friends, significant others, and individuals in various community venues, to include work, school, neighborhood, and one's community at large. Questions, challenges, and issues concerning, self-identity, purpose, spirituality, career, and an array of everyday human concerns are welcomed for consult.

With regard to my formal education and training, I received a Masters in Counseling from the University of New Orleans in 1994 and my Doctorate in Counseling in 1999. In the state of Louisiana I and licensed as both a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. In addition, I am Board Approved in the State of Louisiana as Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Supervisor.

Excellent service, thank you, not just because there is a discount, otherwise we could not afford it. Also, we have a fabulous counselor.

Dr. White is an excellent counsellor. He guided me so well through my difficult times since a year. I learnt a lot from him and continue to do so. He helped me work on my areas of growth at the same time help me identify my mistakes and learn from them in a positive way. His positive messages in difficult times makes my day and always gets a smile on my face. Thank you so much. Words are not enough to appreciate all that you have done for me.

Dr. White is patient and unshakable, meaning he is always professional no matter what you throw at him. He always returns back to what is important and helps you stay focused on the objectives of the session. He is also very warm and I find talking with him to be very easy, he is comforting without condescension. I especially appreciate how he picks up on certain things and will ask about them later no matter how long I have "ranted", for example he might say something like, "earlier when you said 'hopeless' what did you mean by that". I always feel heard with Dr. White and I know that I am growing as a person and as a partner in my relationship.

Dr. White is consistent, kind, non judgemental and overall helpful. He is a great listener & leaves his personal bias out of counseling which is appreciated. He's been a steady presence in our sometime turbulent relationship. I've learned so much from him & work to find that same consistency.

Dr. White is masterful at reading signals, asking questions that cut through confusion or presumption, modeling constructive listening, and being real. We feel seen and honored by him. He’s given us practical tools, clear feedback, and kindness. We are so grateful for his presence and influence in our relationship.

We had a two-month sessions with Alfred. At the beginning, I didn't think it would be helpful and just treated like a last trial to prove that this relationship is helpless even though we still love each other, we just don't fit. Through sessions, Alfred convinced me that it is all about communication. Now, i still argue with my partner but at least, we know how to make it an effective and productive problem solving process. Thanks a lot for Alfred's valuable advice. I highly recommend him.

Dr. White provided the perfect questions to help my husband and I start meaningful conversations. During our conversations, he helped us navigate our feelings and express their meaning. We strongly admire his calm approach and positive outlook on life. A wonderful experience!
