My Christian Faith and My Professional Practice

True Christian counselors and therapists are not only counselors who are themselves Christians, but professionals who, because of their calling, are thoroughly educated and committed to Christ and the Bible as well as counseling and psychology, committed on a personal level to provide exceptional support.

I am the creator of "Emancipation Therapy." a theoretical approach to Christian/Biblical Counseling. Ask me for more information.

I came to trust Jesus Christ as his own personal Savior when he was a child. God called me to give his life to serve Him and others a couple years later. In my early 20's at Lancaster Bible College I God clearly called and ordained me to the Christian pastoral ministry. In the decades that followed I had the privilege of pastoring a number of independent and Grace Brethren/Charis Fellowship churches in Pennsylvania, Indiana, Ohio and Delaware. My family was involved in getting churches started in Arizona and California. I was responsible for forming congregations in Ohio, Delaware and Pennsylvania.

I was also heavily involved in the local, national and international professional counseling, even elected as the President of the Counseling Association of Greater Philadelphia and serving on the State Board of the Pennsylvania Counseling Association. More importantly, I was involved in leadership leadership roles of what has become known as the "Christian Counseling movement." I served for 15 years as the Executive Director of the United Association of Christian Counselors, International, and was involved in the founding and oversight of the United Institute of Biblical Counseling.

I have had the privilege of extensive educational training in Bible, Pastoral Ministry, Elementary Education, Biblical Greek and Counseling Psychology. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Bible Greek and Psychology, and my Master of Arts, and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in Counseling Psychology. In addition I have been honored with Doctor of Divinity and Doctor of Humane Letters degrees. More recently, I served as the Pennsylvania State Director of Child Evangelism Fellowship.

Investment and Costs:

All consultation, life-coaching and counsel are the self-funded responsibility of those coming for help and support. This is to protect the confidentiality of client's information. Professional confidentiality and trust is of utmost importance.

Because we are faith-based, we decided many years ago to no longer accept insurance payments nor government agency support, We are here to provide clear and exceptional help. Your financial contributions are the sole support of these services and ministries.

The typical customary fees among most agencies request to see a PhD or PsyD with extensive experience is $250-300.

However, Dr. Art is here to help in every way we can, including offering exceptional services at affordable investment, as a Christian support service. The initial assessment session with me is up to you and what God leads, between $150 and $250. After that, we want you to pray about it and ask God for wisdom and provision for what He wants you to contribute. There are a limited number of opportunities for special needs considerations. Don't hesitate to share them with me if they arise, including consideration for more than one session in a week per family income. There are more options, including packages for monthly consults. Half hour sessions are also available.

We believe God's work is to be carried on by God's people. If you are a believer and God has blessed you, and leads you to do so, here is a link to the way you can contribute with your tithes, offerings and gifts to help us accomplish our mission. All goes to support the various ministries of New Hope and Freedom:
