Philadelphia Christian Counseling

Christian Counseling in Philadelphia, PA

* Christian counseling is currently only offered at the Thriveworks Philadelphia JFK office and the Thriveworks Philadelphia Center City office.

Christianity provides hope, happiness, and stability for millions of people around the world. When life throws its curveballs, many Christians are able to transition and cope through the help of prayer, Scripture reading, and through building relationships with other believers.

However, there are some Christians who may need additional help reacting to things that happen in life. Being the victim of an abuse, going through a divorce, moving or changing jobs, or transitioning to married life once all the children have left home, all of these are situations that would make anyone wish for extra guidance.

If you are a Christian who lives in the Philadelphia, PA area and you need guidance that reflects your faith, Thriveworks Philadelphia Christian Counselors can help. Call us today to set up your first appointment.

Don’t feel ashamed or embarrassed to ask for help.

Unfortunately, many Christians don’t ask for help because they’re afraid of being judged for having a weak faith. Asking for help doesn’t make you weak; in fact, it’s actually a sign of great strength.

Our Thriveworks Philadelphia Christian counselors can help you in a number of areas, such as:

  • Life coaching
  • Couples counseling
  • Marriage counseling
  • Career counseling
  • Anxiety counseling
  • Depression counseling
  • Addiction Therapy

No matter what you may be facing, our counselors can provide the help you need that reflects the principles you live by.

Call us today and see one of our counselors this week!

Call us today to make your first appointment. Our counselors believe you should receive guidance today, not weeks or months from now – that’s why we have no waiting lists. Call us and see one of our counselors this week, possibly even the same day we hear from you.

We weren’t created to bear our burdens alone. Call us and let us help you make positive changes in your life.

Robert Kuehl, LPC

Robert earned his bachelor’s degree from Temple University and received a Master’s degree in clinical counseling from Eastern University. Robert has enjoyed working with adolescents and adults in helping them live with a variety of challenges including depression, anxiety, physical/psychological trauma, psychosis, personality disorders, anger, relationship problems, life transitions, grief and many others. Robert employs a psychodynamic approach to conceptualizing problems and a Client-Centered approach to building therapeutic rapport. While Robert uses several different models for change he often draws from Cognitive Therapy and Motivational Interviewing but treatment will be personalized for your needs.

The foundation for Robert’s work is the belief that we were built for relationships and as a result the relationship between therapist and person-in-therapy is the vehicle for change. Providing a warm, non-judgmental space in which people feel secure is priority number one. Where you go from there is completely up to you!
