Licensed Professional Counselor
I obtained my counseling training at Ashland Theological Seminary. The core values of Ashland Theological Seminary are Scripture, Spiritual Formation, Community and Academic Excellence.
To graduate, I completed 98 Master's-level credit hours, and 600 hours in counseling internships at a local hospital and counseling agency.
After graduation, I passed the National Counseling Exam (NCE) through the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) and completed 3,000 hours of post-graduate counseling hours, including 300 hours in supervision.
More than 4,000,000 couples have prepared for marriage or enriched their relationship through taking the P/E assessment and working with a Certified Facilitator. The assessment itself has been proven to improve relationship satisfaction; however there is something extraordinary about the relationship a Facilitator develops with a couple that truly helps the couple grow more than they would on their own.
P/E is one of the most widely researched assessment tools. Professors and students at colleges and universities worldwide use the scales as a tool to conduct and evaluate their research. P/E continues to adapt and react to the changing reality of relationships through continued research and development of assessments and resources.
