Regent University, Doctoral Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies (CAGS) 2013 - 2014 Lincoln Christian University, Masters of Arts in Counseling (MAC) 2008 - 2011 I have provided therapy in a broad range of clinical settings, including Lincoln Christian University and Lincoln College Lincoln' s counseling centers, private practice counseling centers, and crisis intervention counseling, brief therapy, and group therapy to residents at Logan Correctional Center. I have also worked at a Residential/Outpatient Adult Chemical Dependency Agency as an addictions therapist where I provided individual and group counseling to adult clients, along with offering support and education to their families.
