Dr. Cory Viehl is a Licensed Professional Counselor (GA #006493), a National Certified Counselor (#238546) and an Approved Clinical Supervisor (#01964). He earned his PhD in Counselor Education and Practice with a cognate in multicultural supervision and practice from Georgia State University.  He was selected as an NBCC Minority Fellow in 2014. He is a Counselor Educator at several universities specializing in instruction of skills, addiction, trauma, and sexuality. Dr. Viehl has 13 years of counseling experience in diverse settings including but not limited to IOP, college counseling, and higher education administration.

His supervision identity, in congruence with his counselor education and counseling identity, is rooted in constructivism, and is informed by narrative, existential, and Adlerian theories and interventions. He approaches supervision from an integrated perspective, informed by the Discrimination Model of Supervision, assuming various roles (e.g. counselor, consultant, teacher) that are most salient for the supervisee’s continued growth as a counselor. Additionally, Dr. Viehl utilizes an intentional focus upon intersections of identities to inform the process of conceptualization and treatment planning in supervision. His research and professional interests have historically centered on LGBTQI+ individuals in counseling, counselor education, and supervision. More specifically, his publications have focused on sexual and gender expansive identities and experiences of minority stress as well as coping and burnout. He is currently the President of the Society for Sexual, Affectional, Intersex, and Gender Expansive Identities (SAIGE; formerly known as ALGBTIC, a national division of ACA).
