Tim’s clinical background has involved crisis stabilization and mental health skill building within the Lynchburg community as well as small-scale private practice and day treatment. He also lived in Central Norway for two years during his undergrad, studying psychology, anthropology and religious studies.
Tim has had the opportunity to travel often and gain experience through building relationships with individuals from various cultural and religious backgrounds. Each day, he seeks to deepen his own spiritual values and beliefs, while also providing an open door for others to do the same through intentional conversations. Tim has seen the importance of these spiritual values within his work as a Narrative therapist. During his presidency, Tim looks forward to inviting others to also take part in creating a culture of spiritual competence marked by servant-leadership, intentional research and relationships, and mutual uplifting of his division members. He hopes to gain insight into how he can honor and serve the members of the chapter, enabling them to practice wisely and with competence on biological, psychological, social, and spiritual levels.
