David Deel, LPC-S


Instructor of Psychology

Deel.JPGI am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) and a certified LPC supervisor. I am also licensed as a Southern Baptist minister. I have served in church ministry in a variety of roles for more than 30 years. As a mental health professional for more than 20 years I have served in private practice, psychiatric inpatient treatment, and community mental health. I have also had opportunity over the years to teach as adjunct instructor for Panola College and East Texas Baptist University.

The bulk of my professional career has been in psychiatric emergency intervention and treatment. I served the last 6 years as regional director over crisis and intensive services for Community Healthcore MHMR here in East Texas.  As regional director I have had the privilege of training and organizing the efforts of the next generation healthcare providers with emphasis on integrated care approaches and coordination with critical community partnerships.

  

“The one who had received the five talents came and brought five more, saying, ‘Sir, you entrusted me with five talents. See, I have gained five more.’ His master answered, ‘Well done, good and faithful slave! You have been faithful in a few things. I will put you in charge of many things. Enter into the joy of your master.’” (Matt. 25:20-21 NET)
 
"God has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God." (Micah 6:8 NIV)
