Counselor, Hot Springs, AR., M.A. '89.
Gail Adams, (M.A. ’89) of Hot Springs, Ark., served as president of the
American Mental Health Counselors Association (AMHCA) from 2003 to
2004, where she presided over the workings of the association,
represented them at state conferences, and met with the American
Counseling Association and the American Association of State Counseling
boards. “I am passionate about professionals being
involved in professional associations,” said Gail. “I believe it’s our responsibility to give something back and to advance the profession.” Gail has worked as a therapist for several years, both in private practice and with numerous agencies. She recently led a delegation of mental health counselors to China. One of the joys of her work is getting to see Christ change lives everyday. “I believe He uses me to care for those who are hurting,” she said. “I couldn’t listen to the stories and heartbreaks of my clients day in and day out without His spirit empowering me and guiding me in my responses.”
