Joined the Huntington University faculty in 2021.

Dr. Elijah Lee serves as the program director and as an assistant professor for the Master of Arts in clinical mental health counseling degree program at Huntington University. In the field of counseling, he has found both the poison and the antidote of humankind’s sickness: authentic relationship. His pursuit of counseling has specialized in looking for this cure and the hope of offering it to a world seeking it out.

Elijah’s philosophy as a counselor educator and practicing counselor comes from Jeremiah 3:15. He believes strongly that the role of counselors is to shepherd people in the midst of all of life’s experiences, through both suffering and joy, and that he has a specific calling and great privilege to shepherd shepherds.

Originally from Collegeville, Pennsylvania, Elijah currently resides in Missouri, where he enjoys spending time with family and friends.
