Speaker Bio 

 

Dr. Martin Wesley is currently Dean and Professor of the School of Counseling at University of the Cumberlands in Williamsburg, Kentucky. He has been licensed in Kentucky for 12 years as an LPCC and was licensed as an LPC and CPC in Arizona prior to returning to Kentucky. Martin has also been certified in Substance Abuse Counseling from Arizona and currently holds a Master Addiction Counselor (MAC) credential from NAADAC; the National Association for Addiction Professionals. He holds a B.S. in Psychology from Liberty University, a M.Ed. in Counseling from Northern Arizona University and a Ph.D. in Academic and Counseling Psychology from Walden University.

Dr. Wesley enjoys working with adolescents and adults struggling with addictions. He also has a burden for helping couples and families that are besieged with pressures and difficulties so common in society. He is especially interested in the mental and emotional health of counselors, therapists, and other helpers.  He has worked as a director of a child welfare and counseling agency. He has been the director of a substance abuse facility and worked in private practice. Dr. Wesley has worked as a clinical director, supervisor, therapist, crisis counselor and substance abuse counselor.

Dr. Wesley is a native Kentuckian, born in Lexington Kentucky. He has a proud family heritage in Kentucky extending over 200 years. He has been married for 23 years and has three kids and three grandkids. He also loves his Dachshund and Yorkie! His love of these animals contributed to research in the area of Animal-Assisted Therapy for his Dissertation which has been published and cited in several journal articles and magazine articles.

As an LPCC board member, he strongly advocates for the counseling profession by working with other licensure boards to find common ground, assist in positive policy changes and enforcing licensure requirements. He feels strongly in licensure for public protection and believes the board needs to take a serious look at the number of unlicensed counselors still working in the commonwealth. He also believes that reasonable assessment is a vital part of being a professional counselor which must be protected for those who are qualified. His desire would be to find common ground with the psychologist’s board and develop reasonable standards acceptable to all. As Board Chair, he also led the way to licensure reciprocity agreements between Kentucky and Ohio, Virginia, and Tennessee. He continues to advocate strongly for CACREP accreditation as an educational requirement for all state licensure boards.
