Hello! My name is Dr. Chad Yates. I joined the ISU Department of Counseling in the fall of 2013. I received my Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision from Kent State University and my M.A. in Community Counseling from the University of Toledo. Before coming to ISU I worked as a mental health and substance abuse counselor in Kent, Ohio. I also was a part-time instructor at Kent State University, Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and Youngstown State University.

My counseling experience includes working with individuals with substance abuse disorders, batterers and survivors of domestic violence, families, and as a generalist treating many diverse client issues. I enjoyed working in community agencies that served marginalized and impoverished populations. I have a strong pull to service for my community and a passion for helping its members that are in greatest need.

My research interests include evidence-based practice in counseling, client-focused outcome evaluation, and the treatment of individuals with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. My work in evidence-based practice and client-focused outcome evaluation involves the study of how mental health professionals can track the effectiveness of interventions. My goal in this area of study is to learn how to make client-focused outcome evaluation a valuable clinical and training tool.

My personal interests include hiking, camping, skiing, and golfing. I am excited to live so close to so many wonderful outdoor activities including the national parks of Yellowstone and the Tetons.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or want further information on our program or the counseling profession. I look forward to speaking with you!
