 More About Dr. Ray

Image of Dr. Ray Smith
Prompted by my desire to minister and counsel people of faith who find themselves in difficult situations, I earned a doctorate in ministry and my certification as a Mental Health Counselor. I have my license in Washington for counseling and I am a National Board Certified Counselor.

I serve locally in the Presbyterian Church in my capacity as an ordained minister and as an adjunct Professor of Counseling at Whitworth College.
