Meet Our Founders: Josh and Maureen White

The founders and operators of Red Mountain Sedona are Josh White, MA, LPC, LCMHC, CGP, WPA and Maureen White, MA.  Josh and Maureen met at Naropa University in 1999, while both were pursuing Master’s Degrees in Psychology. Five years later, they were married, and a year after that, their wonderful son was born.

Maureen and Josh worked together in private practice for several years, followed by five years side-by-side in high-profile roles at an adolescent / young adult treatment center. The inspiration for Red Mountain was born from their vision of a mindfulness-based program which would help young people understand their own minds, thoughts, and patterns of behavior. Maureen and Josh felt mindfulness was an untapped accelerator for helping young people make healthy choices and “launch” into successful lives.  They have since proven this concept with over 500 Red Mountain students, and counting.

Uniquely Gifted to Reach Young People Who Are Stuck

Maureen and Josh are experts at reaching young people who are “stuck,” and helping them to find a new path.  Between them, they bring over 55 years of mindfulness practice, over 45 years of clinical experience, and over 30 years of personal recovery to their work at Red Mountain.

As parents themselves, Josh and Maureen understand the process parents go through to find the very best options for their children. They understand the delicate balance involved in guiding young people versus “forcing” them, and the difficulties families experience in determining how much to push and how much to let go.

Find Lasting Answers and Lifelong Solutions

Maureen and Josh welcome the opportunity to help you, or your loved one, find lasting answers to the issues holding you and your family back. They are highly involved in the day to day operation of the program, and have nearly daily contact with all Red Mountain students and staff.  Along with Red Mountain’s expert staff, Josh and Maureen are proud to offer the very best cutting-edge, evidence-based modalities to help you and your family enjoy lasting recovery from any combination of trauma, anxiety, depression, ADHD, and recovery from substance abuse.
