Andrew Wichterman, Ph.D., LPC

I chose this career field because life is hard. People are often hurting and stuck and have no one in which to confide. I wanted to provide a safe place for others so that they could find healing, joy, and reconciliation. I find great joy in guiding someone through the dark places of life to a place of light.

As a professor, I view my work of pouring into students' lives as a way to help even more people find healing. My work with supervisees is no different. I take personally the growth and success of those I supervise because their competence in counseling is so important to satisfaction in their own lives and their ability to positively affect the lives of their clients.

It is my goal to help beginning practitioners meet their professional goals and also develop personally. Oftentimes in supervision, we are so focused on the client that we forget about the well-being of the counselor in front of us. As such, I hope that new professionals will develop not just clinically but as well-balanced people so that they can be of great benefit to their families, communities, and clients.


WORDS I LIVE BY:
"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 5:3-10
