I looked at the degree options and when I saw a Bachelor’s in Psychology and Human Services, it stuck out to me almost immediately. Then I saw a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and I thought, ‘There I am, right there!’ This is where I knew I could make a difference in families’ lives. … Montreat will make you a professional; you just have to put forth the effort. By the grace of God, I’m making it.
