“Arguably the most encompassing demonstration of the commonalities between professional counseling and God’s Word can be seen in Christ’s declaration ‘…but everyone who is fully trained will be like their teacher.’ This not only informs the work we do and the way we teach, but also who we are and who we become.” — Dr. Kuehner
