Name: Michelle Engle
Atlantic Region Executive Committee Member Role: Treasurer
Importance of AAPC: My involvement with the AAPC as a graduate student provided opportunities for me to connect with pastoral counselors in the region. I believe the AAPC provides a valuable forum for pastoral counselors to network together and pursue common goals that can influence the wider counseling community in integrating spirituality in the treatment of mental health.
