Marcia Holst, Counselor

    My name is Marcia Holst. I received my bachelor’s degree from the United States Naval Academy and subsequently served in the Marine Corps as a Logistics Officer, including a combat tour in Iraq. I received my master’s degree from Liberty University. I am licensed in the state of Ohio as a Professional Counselor (LPC) and am also a National Certified Counselor (NCC). I work under the supervision of Mark Yoder, LPCC-S.
    I am certified in trauma therapy (Level 1) and am in the process of certification for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which is a highly researched evidenced based approach for many issues. I am a trained coach for the National Center of Biblical Parenting and use their heart-based approach with my own kids. I am also a trained facilitator for the Prepare/Enrich marriage enrichment/counseling program. I work with individuals, couples and children.
    I have served in many different capacities over the years at my church (women’s and kids’ ministries, as well as outreach and missions), and I love incorporating biblical truth and perspective when requested. I love spending time with my husband and three kids, especially being outside (mostly when it’s warm!) and doing activities like playing sports, camping, and hiking. I also love reading and working out.
