Independently Licensed in Maryland and Virginia and certified supervisor in both states, Eugene Harris II believes we must be ready for service in season and out of season and that much will be required from everyone to whom much has been given.
Utilizing his gift of helping and assisting others has been Eugene’s passion for a long time. He has an array of different experiences and believes effective counseling is balanced with both clinical and Christian principles. Eugene is a retired U.S. Air Force officer with over 20 year of services, where he honorably served in Operations IRAQI FREEDOM, ENDURING FREEDOM, JOINT FORCE, and ALLIED FORCE.
He also served as a Master Instructor, gained advanced training and experience conducting personal counseling sessions, while positively affecting the lives of many members. While on active duty, he earned a Bachelor’s of Science (BS) degree in Psychology while double majoring in Education from the University of Southern Mississippi, a Master’s of Public Administration (MPA) degree from Troy State University, and has met the requirements for a Master’s of Community Counseling (MA) degree from Argosy University at their Washington D.C. Campus.
He has served in numerous leadership positions, thereby gaining an up close, personal understanding of the challenges many military members and their families face. Although his focal point in counseling is marriage and family therapy coupled with Christian growth and development, Eugene’s church community involvement, leading Bible studies and men’s fellowship lectures, play a vital part in the application of these experiences for effective counsel.
