Wally Johnston earned his MA in Counseling Psychology from George Fox University in 1996.  He served in a group practice as a counselor after graduation.  Since Wally believes relationships are vital he began Foundations 4 Your Life in 2008, serving as a relationship coach and educator.

Previous to earning his MA he served as an ordained minister, church planner, public and private school educator.  He retired in 2010 as a law enforcement chaplain after 26 years.  Because of his experience working at Ground Zero in New York City following the terrorist attack on 9/11/2001, he published a book called Sent To Serve…The Chaplains of 9/11, available at www.Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle format.

Wally also provides seminars for parents, counselors, public safety, and business.

He has been featured in numerous news articles, radio, and television interviews, and has spoken to various community groups including the Washington County Museum.

Wally has been married to Linda since 1974 and has two grown married sons and one grown foster son, and one granddaughter.
