Jay McCall, M.Div., BCCC, CCSAS

Jay McCall, M.Div. earned his Master of Divinity, with a major in Counseling Psychology, from Western Evangelical Seminary (now at George Fox University). He has 2 years of post-graduate training in clinical psychology in a Doctor of Psychology program.

Jay has extensive experience in the mental health field especially in the areas of clinical assessment, therapeutic intervention, direct service delivery, and program management and administration. He was instrumental in developing a comprehensive Christian-based inpatient psychiatric treatment program. He was responsible for overseeing all therapeutic aspects of this intensive treatment program which included initial assessments, coordinating admissions, creating treatment and discharge plans, and coordinating patient after-care with local outpatient providers. He supervised the counseling staff and developed group treatment programming for daily treatment groups. He led over 1500 therapy groups during his tenure. He also provided individual counseling sessions for patients.

Jay’s current counseling practice utilizes his vast experience in counseling and the mental health field, his experience in Christian ministry, and from his own personal moral failures. Jay struggled for years with the bondage of sexual sin and addiction. Through God’s mercy and grace and through good counsel and accountability, he is now able to help others who struggle in life (see Jay’s story). Jay’s counseling work focuses upon men battling with addictions (primarily sexual addiction), men who were abused as boys, and men who suffer from depression and anxiety, and marriages in crisis. Before starting The Four Rivers, Jay created and managed a Comprehensive Christian Sexual Addiction Treatment Program for A New Life Christian Counseling. At The Four Rivers, Jay has created Ferocious Intent, a Christian-based intensive outpatient program to treat sexual addiction.
