Chad Wilt, MA, LPCC


Hello, here's a bit more about me

Chad Wilt is a Licensed Professional counselor with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education from Ohio University and a Masters Degree in Clinical Counseling from Ashland Theological Seminary. His continued training in relationships and marital therapy allows him to come alongside couples to help them overcome obstacles of intimacy, pornography, communication, conflict resolution, infidelity, and parenting issues.

Pursuing his passion as a marriage coach and therapist came from his own personal experience as a child coping with the effects of divorce and the desire to have a thriving healthy marriage of his own.

Chad, aka “Charlie Brown”, as his family and close friends sometimes affectionately call him, brings a sense of humor and compassion in his role as a marriage coach that enables him to connect with a couple and help them feel at ease and comfortable. In addition to his work as a marriage coach for the Smalley Institute, Chad also provides clinical counseling in a private practice in Westerville, Ohio.

Chad and his wife Melanie, were married in 1996 after they fell in love singing together at a high school cabaret where Chad was the band director and his wife was the musical director. Chad and Melanie live in Lewis Center, Ohio with their 3 wonderful, and thank the Lord, not perfect children. Chad’s interests, outside of his family and working with couples, are camping, hiking, backpacking, anything outdoors, and his love music.

"This program is wonderful! The processes that my husband and I have learned are life changing! We are going to have a better marriage because of the tools that we have learned. The skills we had were lacking, at best, and we have realized that what we will be applying to our lives will not only effect us, but our children and even their children. I am thrilled to know that we will be able to teach them by being good (better) role models."


"We saw God do amazing things in our two-day intensive. I had all but given up on my marriage. I came out of obligation and had decided I would be done with the mess of a marriage that we had. After 26 years of pain and inability to communicate, after addiction and infidelity. God showed up and healed a shattered relationship and stared us on a new journey. Looking forward to continuing on in therapy. Our coach was such a blessing and made us so comfortable. No words to describe what happened. Thank you!"


"I personally had about given up on our marriage. After years, even decades of different counselors, we were still stuck in unhealthy and destructive cycles. Our coach had the knowledge, style, tools, and care to hear our pain, validate us, and teach us to do that for each other. It was the key for our hearts to soften and opened the door to a healthier and happier future together."
