I was referred, to the SCMi Institute, by my Pastor who is certified to administer the Arno Profile System (APS). I am the Associate Pastor and Pastoral Counselor at my church.  I have been wanting to get qualified to use the APS for a number of years. After having received my Masters of Art in Religion – Pastoral Counseling (MAR) and M.Div from Liberty University, God has led me to get qualified as an N.C.C.A. Licensed Clinical Pastoral Counselor and earn my doctorate with through your N.C.C.A. program! My goal is to expand the services I provide in the Lehigh Valley PA-NJ area.

(Certification, License, PhD) Associate Pastor

I enrolled in the N.C.C.A. Program, with the SCMi Institute, so I could be educated in the area of counseling since it is my hearts desire to help the wounded receive Christ’s healing touch. Now that I have completed the program, I am looking to obtain my 501c3 status via charter.  My plan is to counsel at the Department of Corrections in my county and offer transition training. Thank you so much for helping me achieve my goals: From GED to Certification + Ministry Credentials + Internship + NCCA License + BA/MA; you’ve been such a blessing to me!

Dr. King, each time I am in contact with you, my mind cannot help but think of how God used you – two women who knew nothing of each other – to pour such richness into me.  I am eternally grateful to Him! What you have shared has enlightened me so much and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I can just imagine how many people are out there who need this type of professional post-graduate mentorship. I’m just blown away right now, which is why God sent you my way . . . to help me grow and be even more impactful.
