Faculty & Staff

Having a long time interest in working with people, Trent eventually studied psychology as a first step to obtaining degrees in marriage and family therapy. As a doctoral student, he worked as an instructor and as an assistant editor for the Journal of Marital and Family Therapy.

Being a researcher, instructor, and clinician is important to Trent and he has worked in a variety of clinical settings. These include, a juvenile justice center, a residential treatment center for adolescent sexual offenders, a women's shelter, and various community mental health centers. Trent also brings in over six years of teaching experience.

Trent believes it is important to be balanced in all of life's activities and appreciate the journey in life. In the words of Milton H. Erickson, "Life isn't something you can give an answer to today. You should enjoy the process of waiting, the process of becoming what you are. There is nothing more delightful than planting flower seeds and not knowing what kind of flowers are going to come up."
