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 Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) and am also a National Certified Counselor (NCC).
    I am certified in trauma therapy (Level 1) and have completed a yearlong course for certification in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which is a highly researched evidenced based approach for many presenting issues. I also earned the telemental health training certificate (THTC) through completion of a comprehensive THTC program. I am a trained coach for the National Center of Biblical Parenting, and a trained facilitator for the Prepare/Enrich marriage enrichment/counseling program. I have additional training in anxiety/depression, grief, marriage therapy and some eating disorders. I work with individuals and couples.
    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, hiking and traveling. I am currently living overseas for a couple years so all of my sessions are conducted through a HIPAA compliant platform called Adaptive Telehealth (face to face through computer).
