Professional Counselor Intern
Agape Counseling Associates is excited to welcome Noah to our growing team of professionals. He will be completing intern hours and course requirements toward full licensure for private practice under the direct supervision of Troy Peverall. While we continue to address the vast need for mental health in our surrounding areas, Agape is pleased to offer extended hours through Noah for marriage and family, teens, and college students. With excellent training and deep insight, he is helping our team continue to offer the best in Clinical Christian Counseling.
I am glad you have come this far into your journey to better your life, family, or marriage! It
would be a joy to walk alongside you as you continue in that process. One of the people that I
look up to most is Dr. Gary Chapman, who wrote the world-famous book “The Five Love
Languages.” He has always been an influence in my personal development and in my
development as a counselor, which is how I came to be so passionate about marriages. In
addition, I am passionate about helping individuals promote self-growth so that they can reach
their goals and make their dreams a reality. I have a direct approach to counseling and WILL say
something about any thoughts or behaviors that are unhealthy. I have found that people
appreciate a counselor who confronts unhealthy habits rather than simply affirming them or
just going along with them. However, I try to do this with as much grace and understanding as
possible, and I also base everything that I do on research and clinical experience so that clients
are not swayed by my opinion, but by the collective experience of people with a wealth of
research, clinical experience, and education. I take a largely Existential and Jungian approach to
therapy and integrate techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Person-
Centered Therapy and Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy. Faith-based counseling is not
mandatory at Agape, but it is certainly available upon request. Currently, I am logging hours of
clinical experience in preparation for both graduation from Liberty University and the Licensure
Exam so that I can become licensed as an LCMHCA. However, just as I am on a journey, I believe
that all of my clients are on a journey as well. It is my job as a counselor to walk with clients as
we process past trauma, self-care, necessary changes, current and past feelings, and future
aspirations. I am excited to put my passion, experience, and education to use as I assist you in
achieving your goals.
