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!

Maurice Denton, LPC

Hello! My name is Maurice Denton.

I began my study of psychology in 11th grade when given the choice between it and German. While German is an interesting language, I think I made the right choice. Since then, I graduated with a BA in Psychology from Eastern University and then a Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Regent University. I’ve been employed in the helping field for most of my working life. I’ve continued in this field because I love being a support for people as they work through life challenges, and having overcome my share of major difficulties, I’m not afraid to sit with you and work through heavy issues. I consider the people that I work with to be participants, not only clients, because we’re working together to find pathways to problem solving. You’re in the driver seat and your goals will be our focus.

I believe in taking a person centered approach to therapy, which sees my participants as autonomous, capable of changing their lives in positive ways, and moving toward their full potential. Since being trained as a Clinical Mental Health Counselor, I have walked with participants through the most severe cases of anxiety, depression, Bi-Polar disorder, Schizophrenia, and other chronic life interruptions.  I always consider it an honor and a privilege when my clients share with me, the life experiences that have brought them to their current place, whatever that may be. I believe that you are a valuable individual, no matter what you’re dealing with, and that you don’t have to carry the weight of your concerns alone.

Dr. Allena Moncrief

Greetings, my name is Dr. Allena M. Moncrief and I have been providing therapeutic services to clients in the Philadelphia area since 2010.  I obtained my PhD from Drexel University in the field of Couple and Family Therapy in 2017.  As a psychotherapist, I understand the decision to enter psychotherapy can be extremely challenging for some individuals.  Thus, I strive to meet individuals where they are in the therapeutic process.   This process involves helping individuals explore the root of their difficulties/road blocks and assisting them with creating a roadmap that will lead to a more fulfilling and enjoyable life.  I am a trauma- informed therapist with specialization in the areas of: self-esteem, marital and familial conflict, sexual abuse, transgenerational trauma, divorce, adolescent challenges, and parenting.  I offer services to adults, adolescents, couples, and families.  As an African American woman, I have a grave understanding of the trials and tribulations individuals of color face in today's society.  I believe race, ethnicity, culture, and social economical factors play a pivotal role in how individuals live their daily lives and I invite discussion of such factors in the therapeutic process.
