As a 2009 graduate of the counseling program at Ashland Theological Seminary, Dr. Imhoff considers it a blessing to be back at ATS as a faculty member. After earning his Ph.D. in Counselor Education & Supervision at Ohio University, Dr. Imhoff has been on faculty at ATS since 2015. He is especially grateful for the unique opportunity at ATS to provide students a sound clinical counseling education while openly integrating it with the Christian faith.
Dr. Imhoff’s academic interests include addictions, group work, mood and anxiety disorders, and the integration of Christian principles with Cognitive-behavioral Therapy. Dr. Imhoff has presented on these areas numerous times at state and national conferences and often does so in collaboration with students who also share his passion for these topics. It is that relationship with students, through teaching and mentoring, which Dr. Imhoff enjoys most about his job.
In his leisure time, Dr. Imhoff thoroughly enjoys being outdoors. Having visited 49 of the 50 states and his favorite of those—Alaska—four times, he has developed a great passion for the natural world. He and his wife, Andrea, spend much of their time hiking, traveling, wildlife viewing, and simply instilling that passion in their young son, Trek Miles. Dr. Imhoff also enjoys capturing scenes of the natural world through photography and is an accomplished nature, athletics, and portrait photographer, whose work has garnered local and national attention.
