Paul Maxfield recently graduated from Kansas State University’s PhD program in counselor education. He then made the long drive down to Gainesville with his wife and dog this summer. He has been licensed as a counselor in Texas and Kansas, and is now working on obtaining a license in Florida. Paul has diverse experiences as a counselor, working with addictions and families (and families struggling with addiction) along with a number of other mental health issues. He has experience in both private practice and community settings as well as a formative internship at a residential addiction treatment center in Texas. In a previous academic life, Paul got a BA in English literature and creative writing, and is excited about exploring the intersection of stories and counseling through narrative therapy.
