Dr. Bunch's Training & Credentials
I have been in private practice since September 1999. However, I started counseling much earlier than 1999. My first official counseling session started in the dressing room of a major department store. A lady lost her husband of over 50 years, and she didn't know what to do with her life. She came to the department store every week to see me, and we discussed how she was going to move forward with her life. Eventually, her visits decreased as her healing progressed.
From that experience, I went on to graduate school at North Carolina Central University and to the University of Kentucky for my PhD in Counseling Psychology.
I'm currently licensed as a LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor) and LCAS (Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist). I'm also a NBCC. I've recently completed the training for the Certification in Distance Credentialed Counselor (DCC) and can provide counseling via Skype.
Finally, I'm an ordained minister and provide Christian/spiritual and traditional counseling to my patients.
