I use this site to post personal and professional musings. I do not provide counseling and consulting services on this blog but do so in more appropriate and private settings.
However, if you are interested in my speaking, consulting, or counseling services**, please contact me through my private practice phone number: 215.885.1835 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 215.885.1835 end_of_the_skype_highlighting begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 215.885.1835 end_of_the_skype_highlighting, x19. At the present time I do not offer web or email-based counseling but do use SKYPE for consultations where appropriate. Click here for my curriculum-vitae
Adoption, infertility, mental health (i.e., anxiety, depression, addictions, sexuality, trauma, etc.), care for Christian leaders, sex offender care in the church, conflicts, counseling skills, and more. Check out my “Slides…” page for examples of both academic and practical presentations.
I provide individuals, churches and para-church organizations with short-term clinical consultations dealing with the care of leaders and parishioners. Recent consultations include helping churches respond to abuse by leaders and laity and developing both preventive and responsive care plans for individuals or ministry groups seeking to address stressors or problems in their lives. Consultations tend to be short-term and are not an equal substitute for those needing therapy or on-going local care.
I provide limited face-to-face counseling services as an associate at Diane Langberg, PhD & Associates, Jenkintown, PA. At the present time I have a waiting list. However, our practice consists of 16 other well-qualified male and female Christian counselors (masters and doctoral level). If you are interested in seeking counseling from one of these fine individuals please contact our office manager, Jean Burch, by calling 215.885.1835, x100. Please let them know if you learned of the practice from this site.
**Two friendly reminders:
1. If in the course of these services I believe you or someone else is in imminent risk of harm from self or other (e.g., child or elder abuse, suicidality or homicidality) I will takes steps to ensure safety by possibly warning those at risk, notifying the authorities who can provide needed safety or other possible interventions.
2. I negotiate fees prior to providing the above services.
