Welcome to Cornerstone Therapeutic and Educational Consulting
Living with a struggling child can be traumatic for an entire family. Their actions tell you they are crying out for help, but are often resistant to change. We specialize in helping families identify the most appropriate treatment and educational options for children and young adults.
Cornerstone Therapeutic and Educational Consulting is here when you have exhausted all known resources to address your child’s educational, behavioral and psychological needs. When you’re feeling hopeless, discouraged, or even scared, and you know your child is endangering their future, it’s time to take action. We join with you, bringing unique expertise and intimate knowledge of out-of-home educational and treatment options throughout the country, to find solutions to your child's struggles.
Why use Cornerstone?
With more than a 20 years of experience working with struggling teenagers, D.Christopher White, M.S.W., and Cornerstone Therapeutic and Educational Consulting provide support, planning, crisis management, and an extensive national network of alternative out-of-home educational and therapeutic options. Finding the appropriate out-of-home placement for your child may be one of the most important decisions that you make in your child’s life.
This decision comes at a great cost – both emotionally and financially. Using a personal and individual approach, we work intimately with parents to identify the most appropriate solution.
We maintain the highest ethical standards. We do not receive any compensation from programs and do not engage in the practice of "referrals for referrals."
The combination of our experience in assessment, psychotherapy, and case management, along with our years of experience in educational settings make us uniquely qualified to match students with programs and to provide appropriate therapeutic and educational plans for families.
Chris has a wealth of knowledge. He is expeditious and capable of assisting families in making therapeutic choices designed to bring about change.

I have worked with Chris over the past several years and highly recommend him.Matt Hoag, Ph.D.
I knew our son was hurting and crying out for help. He was making the same poor choices over and over, we had to break the cycle and try something different. I can’t imagine where we might be today if I had never found you!Parent
I remember the first time we met with you. We were telling you our story and we were hoping you would say, ‘he doesn’t sound so bad’ but in our hearts we knew he was a very troubled young man. You gave us hope that there were programs where our son could get the help he needed.Parent
