Susan Medlin, MA, Resident in Counseling
My name is Susan Medlin and I moved to the Valley in 2013 with my husband. I enjoy spending quality time with my husband, playing the piano, reading, living in the mountains, and watching my pet rabbit’s antics. I graduated in 2002 with a Bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies and minored in music from Emmanuel College in Franklin Springs, Georgia. Although I grew up in North Carolina, I decided to stay in Georgia for 10 years and became involved in two church plants until I married my husband in 2007. We moved to South Carolina where I volunteered with the music ministry, prayer team, and the nursing home ministry team. I have worked in the medical field for over 20 years in different capacities and have seen not only the physical impact of illness but the mental weight that individuals carry on their own
Even though I have spent my entire life within the church and majority of my adult life in ministry, I felt like there was more that I could do to help the people around me. I have always been drawn to people who were hurting and desired to walk with them on their healing journeys. While working in the medical field and ministry, it became evident that people needed an outlet to share their feelings and work through their pain. I graduated from Liberty University with my Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in May of 2023. I am thankful to have been able to attend a school that taught integration with Biblical principles and psychology. It was a privilege to be able to complete my internship with Journey Counseling Ministries and I am excited to join their team. I look forward to coming alongside each client as we walk through life’s challenges together.
