Adam Wilson joined the faculty of Denver Seminary in a full-time capacity in 2017. He graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a BA in Psychology. After marrying his high school sweetheart, Katie, Adam pursued his MA in Counseling from Denver Seminary, graduating in 2005. He began his counseling career working with children and families in a community mental health setting with Arapahoe/Douglas Mental health Network. During this time he worked as apart of an intensive services team, seeking to reduce hospitalization of mentally ill children. He was also able to work within school systems to coordinate the education and care of his clients.

In 2010, Adam moved his practice to Southwest Counseling Associates in Littleton, Colorado. Eventually, Adam became the director and supervisor of Child and Family services at SCA. In 2011, Adam began teaching courses in human development, and later psychopharmacology, as adjunct faculty for Denver Seminary. Also during this time, Adam and Katie were blessed with their first child, Lillian. Having discovered a passion for education, he pursued, and completed, a PhD in Counselor Education and Supervision from Regent University. During this pursuit, Adam and Katie welcomed their second child, Emmett, to the family.

Starting in July, Adam moved into a full-time faculty position in the counseling division at Denver Seminary. Adam is the co-author of the chapter The Neurobiology of Stress and Trauma in the book Treating Trauma in Christian Counseling, edited by H. D. Gingrich & F. C. Gingrich (forthcoming). He has served on the elder board of Centennial Covenant church, where he and his family are members. Adam is a Colorado native and enjoys the outdoors, where he and his family love to play.
