Dr. Bill Vieux received his B.S.W. and M.S.W. from the University of Kansas, achieving his Ph.D. through Northcentral University. Through the study and teaching of psychology, Vieux’s passion is to see a community built, dedicated to the reconciliation of the broken relationship between human beings and the Lord. After spending time as a private practice psychotherapist, he came to OKWU in order to be able to influence others in their calling – a psychologist to other psychologists.
“I love being able to share with people the fact that, to be good at psychology or psychotherapy or case management – anything that has to do with interacting with other people – you must have a supernatural love for people. For me, I know it is from the Holy Spirit. There are days that I suppose I can go through the paces, but when I’m in my right mind I feel comfortable when I’m sitting with someone because I sense that the Spirit is coming and is with us. Once that happens, I’m okay. I don’t have anxiety anymore; I don’t worry about it. And to be able to teach people that, in this setting, it would be hard to do that at a regular university. I am grateful and I love to be able to tell my students that I love them. I always tell them, ‘I know it sounds weird, but I still love you anyway.’”
