Dr. Neuer Colburn started as a career counselor following an earlier career as an executive recruiter. The bulk of her clinical work has been spent in fee-for-service private practice. She was in full-time private practice from 1997–2009, specializing in mood disorders and trauma, and contracting with local foster care and Child Protective Services providers. During that time, she also ran a small consulting firm providing leadership development and team-building services to organizations. Her counseling roots are in Birmingham, Alabama, where she was very active in state leadership, helping create and develop the state Association for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Issues in Counseling affiliate and leading the state American Mental Health Counselors Association chapter to win numerous awards. She also directed a small faith-based organization designed to help women move from dependency to self-sufficiency and conducted national training events to teach others to start similar programs. Upon the completion of her doctoral work, Dr. Neuer Colburn served as a full-time faculty member at Regent University, teaching in its faith-based, CACREP-accredited doctoral (online) and master’s (online and on-campus) programs. She has been with Walden since 2011 and became a core faculty member in 2014. Dr. Neuer Colburn currently provides clinical supervision, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® assessment for individuals and teams, and career coaching in her part-time practice. She serves as co-chair for the Supervision Task Force of the Southern Association for Counselor Education and Supervision, conference committee member for the Association for Spiritual, Ethical, and Religious Values in Counseling, and on the editorial review boards for the Journal of Mental Health Counseling and Counselor Education and Supervision.
