About Me

Hello! My name is Kerri Pingel. My primary clinical focus is working with children and adolescents who have experienced trauma, abuse, or neglect.

Education & Experience

M.A. Clinical and Mental Health Counseling, M.S. Nonprofit Business Management, & B.A. Psychology all from Grace College and Seminary. My professional experiences center around working with children and families. I have significant experience working with female adolescents with severe symptoms. Before counseling, I was a houseparent with teenage girls in a residential setting and for an international nonprofit which works to end child sex-trafficking. I have experience working in faith-based nonprofits, community mental health, school, residential, hospitals, church or ministry, and overseas settings.
