Understanding the different roles that pastors and therapists may play in the lives of your congregants will help you to know when to refer an individual, couple or family to a mental health professional. However, we recognize that your role as pastor does not end once a referral is made. Furthermore, we believe we have a role to play outside of individual therapy services for members of your congregation.

It is our goal to help you in your understanding of psychological needs and issues so that you may better server all of your congregants, those with acute problems as well as those facing everyday life issues and transitions. We offer consultation and discussion groups for clergy as a way of supporting you in your ministry as a Christian leader.

Please contact our director for more information about our relationship with clergy.
