“The Roberts Wesleyan College Psy. D. program is giving me the expertise needed to be effective in service delivery across diverse contexts. Going into practicum experiences and interacting with other professionals in the field, I have immense gratitude for how well my coursework and my professors have prepared me to tackle whatever is asked of me.”


Jennifer Aube, Ph.D.

Program Director, Professor of Psychology
The mental health needs of children and adolescents in our community are great, yet there is a shortage of psychologists trained in evidence-based practice.  My passion is to prepare and inspire new generations of psychologists to competently, ethically, and compassionately provide psychological services to those in need.  It is a joy to be able to do so at Roberts, where we also integrate the practice of psychology with principles of the Christian faith.
