Samaritan Counseling Center


All therapists on Samaritan’s clinical team are licensed by the State of Pennsylvania and/or certified by a professional organization. They represent a variety of professional backgrounds, including: clinical psychologists, licensed professional counselors, licensed social workers, marriage and family therapists, pastoral counselors and bereavement counselors. Each has earned at least one master’s degree in the mental health field and participates in ongoing education programs. Additionally, Samaritan therapists are comfortable integrating faith into therapy, as desired by their clients, to help them experience the grace and presence of God in their lives. Lastly, our therapists have offices in Pittsburgh, Beaver and Butler Counties, Punxsutawney and Sewickley.
