Lee Wetherbee

Dr. Lee Wetherbee, PHD, LP, LPCC

Professor of Counseling

The ongoing gift of mentoring and training clinical counseling students is something Dr. Wetherbee counts among his most fulfilling achievements in life.

Dr. Wetherbee and his wife Faye met as juniors in high school and have been married for 40 years—years which he describes as “glorious”! The Wetherbees have two grown children and are now enjoying three grandchildren.

One of Dr. Wetherbee’s interests is coffee, in all its forms, as evidenced by ownership of three espresso machines. He will readily admit to being an unrepentant coffee snob. Dr. Wetherbee’s other hobbies include cycling, exercise, and music, particularly jazz and blues. He is a member of multiple worship teams at his church and plays on occasion for chapel services at ATS.
