MORGANTOWN, WV -

A counseling psychology professor at West Virginia University has been recognized as one of the best counseling, psychology and therapy professors in the United States.

James Bartee, assistant professor in the department of counseling, rehabilitation counseling, and counseling psychology, is included in a list of "99 Top Professors in Counseling, Psychology & Therapy" published this month on MastersinCounseling.org.

The list focuses on U.S. professors and is not intended as an ordered ranking but as a collection of experts highly involved in research and promoting learning in their field of expertise, explains the website.

Bartee, who came to WVU in 2004, specializes in severe personality disorders in adults. Before coming to WVU, Bartee spent 14 years working as a consulting and counseling psychologist in Haifa, Israel. During that time, he worked with about 1,500 volunteers at the Bahá'í World Center, a spiritual and administrative hub of the Bahá'í faith.

Bartee is also the training director for the Ph.D. in counseling psychology program at WVU. In that role, he oversees the development and maintenance of the APA-accredited doctoral program in professional psychology.
