President and CEO

Organization: Solihten Institute
Location: Denver, CO, Remote Position
Type/Industry: Mental Health


Solihten Institute is an interfaith and interdenominational counseling network comprised of nearly 40 Centers in 200 offices that provide 500,000+ hours of services every year. We recruit, accredit, connect, educate, and advance counseling centers that practice one of the most effective paths to healing: spiritually integrated therapy.

Together, we serve the healing and wholeness of nearly 50,000 children, teens, men, women, and veterans every year.

Prior to 2019, we operated as Samaritan Institute, which was formed in 1972 when a physician joined together with two congregation clergy and a seminary professor in Elkhart, Indiana. Together, they formed a counseling resource that integrates what people believe into how they heal. For half of a century, this community of clergy, mental health professionals, and physicians has grown to serve a national collective of member Centers who share a commitment to nurturing mind, body, spirit, and community.

Under the name Solihten (soh-LITE-en, wholeness + light), we will continue to grow the Institute well into the future while extending a spiritually and culturally inclusive message to counselors and clients across the nation.
