MH23-22. Dr. Jo Anne White & Neurodivergents.

Mental Health Awareness with Sara Troy and her guest Dr Jo Anne White, on air from May 30th

People are often made to feel less than because of their differences whether thinking or communicating differently, their race, faith or gender it can set someone up for self-doubt, failure, depression even suicide. I know what it’s like to feel like an outcast. My teachers believed I wouldn’t amount to anything because of my unintentional mirror writing. I had to painfully overcome this and override the voices and messages in my head that I wasn’t good enough. We don’t have to fall victim to other people’s judgments of us. We can also shift the internal negative mind talk that was instilled in us to be able to gain confidence in ourselves, advance, succeed and thrive. Many people are held back because of other’s opinions which devalue them. Unfortunately they can take on another’s beliefs about themselves which may be untrue. It’s not only up to us to change that perspective and mindset for ourselves, it’s important to honor, respect and celebrate other’s differences as well as our own. I’ve had to overcome these challenges in my own life and I am equipped to help people access their gifts, uncover their purpose and gain more confidence and positivity about themselves, their lives, relationships, their abilities and their mission.

As someone who is neurodivergent and who struggled with learning differently growing up, it was important for Jo Anne White to help people considered atypical, often unaccepted and judged harshly as she was by her elementary school teachers. Although not easy, she changed the limiting belief in her brain, brought on by others’ judgements that she wasn’t capable and wouldn’t succeed. She pursued education and went on to get a Master’s in Education/Special Education and a PhD/Doctorate. Early in her career, she taught children with special needs and was also an adjunct Instructor in the Special Education Department at Temple University. Dr. White was then hired as the Executive Director of a comprehensive educational, clinical, vocational, autistic, residential and community program for children and youth with special needs at Bancroft, in New Jersey. She later served as their Director of Research, Evaluation and Training for all of Bancroft programs. 

Intuitive messaging called for different work and international bestselling award winning author, Jo Anne, became a certified coach and counselor and branched out into her own consulting and coaching practice. Due to her own challenges and injuries, she sought alternative treatments (such as Reiki Healing, hypnotherapy and more) when traditional medicine didn’t help heal her body. They proved successful so she received training/certifications and incorporated them into her treatment, teaching, coaching and healing approaches which she still successfully uses today with her clients.

Currently, Dr. White is recognized as a Goodwill Global Ambassador for civil and humanitarian work in education, entrepreneurship, coaching and women’s issues & named a Worldwide Branding Top Female Executive in Professional Coaching by Worldwide Who’s Who. As a certified life, spiritual and business coach, counselor and energy master teacher, she empowers and inspires men, women, families and businesses to achieve greater health and wellness, master success, realize their dreams, thrive and triumph. She’s also the executive producer and host of the Power Your Life Shows and a Featured Contributor for BIZCATALYST 360°.
