"I found Joyce when I had gotten off track in life and my career and when I really needed someone else’s perspective to provide clarity on what was really happening.  Joyce helped me get unstuck and begin experiencing the daily little victories that are now moving me in the direction of long-term success."

Jeffrey Morris, CPA, Financial Consultant


Joyce White

Mentor Coach




WHITESSPACE provides the space and expertise to help smart people grow and develop. The common thread for many is that they want something more. More time, balance, self-control;  greater vitality, sense of purpose or fulfillment, better communication.  Typically, they stand at a threshold, ready for something new, looking for guidance to clarify their direction and help craft their unique path forward.

More on Personal Life Mentoring


Over 30 years and thousands of sessions with people from every walk of life, we found ourselves responding to the concerns of caring, committed people who were all struggling in some way with the demands and expectations of life and work.

Our 4-step WHITESSPACE Methodology is the heart of our work-life coaching and mentoring process. Our clients are the first to say that it works! With this "pause first" approach, each client begins the mentoring relationship with early success-building activities that are easy and effective.

More on Work Life Mentoring




We mentor those who want to practice faith-integrated living and leadership, their God-given purpose, and their commitment to faith-based accountability.

Faith & Practice mentoring is focused on encountering God at greater levels and working by the power of God’s grace rather than one’s personal will.

“Joyce White is a mentor coach par excellence. She served as a mentor coach for me in the Center for Creative Leadership’s New Coach Orientation. The feedback that she provided to me was very specific and covered both positive aspects of my coaching and areas where I could improve. She quickly helped me to identify verbal and nonverbal unconscious habits of mine that hampered my effectiveness. She modeled what superb coaching looks and sounds like. Her many years of executive coaching also were reflected in tips that she offered for handling situations that were out of my comfort zone. I was very fortunate to have had Joyce White as my mentor coach. I attribute much of my early success in executive coaching to Joyce’s mentorship. I highly recommend Joyce White as a mentor coach”.
