Outpatient services include assessments, individual therapy, psychiatric consultations and medication management, pastoral counseling, group therapy, case management, and consultations. Services are offered on our Downingtown campus from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Additionally, we offer a network of experienced providers who see individual clients in their offices in the metropolitan Philadelphia area with hours determined by the client and therapist.
Our assessment program offers a comprehensive psycho-diagnostic assessment or an individually-tailored assessment to religious professionals or those considering the vocational life of a priest, permanent deacon, seminarian or religious. We welcome clergy of Protestant denominations. We make recommendations about the presenting issues or help gauge compatibility for a specific diocese or religious community. We also re-evaluate individuals who have been previously assessed.
