It's funny, but from the first few paragraphs of this, I figured I'd write a comment about how the story of a degree-less, uneducated person can be elevated to therapist is something only to be found in the Christian Right. My second thought was how this is exemplified in reparative/ conversion therapy, where people with no formal training call themselves religious leaders and counsel teens.

The dark side to this story is, hanging the tag "religion" on a person, coupled with protections being handed down by our new SCOTUS, will allow this condition to repeat itself in America.

Great expose on this person!
