A Christian Counseling Practice

talk

      Is my private practice in Marietta, Georgia.  I can also do distance counseling through an encrypted webcam server if you are in the state of Georgia.  For a private consultation for counseling, call 770-315-7114 or email jef.peeples@gmail.com.  For more about me, read the blog post “Why Me?” Some things about me:

Perspective: Although my Acceptance and Commitment Therapy theoretical approach is firmly rooted in an integrated Christian worldview, I am also eclectically influenced by Logotherapy and Sand-tray World-play therapies.  As a Christian therapist, there are many points where my worldview does not agree with these theoretical perspectives. I view the deepest desire of man to be one for peace and meaning.  In New Testament texts, the Greek word for peace is eirene which also means “whole.” While I do see a purpose in reflecting on the past at times, I do focus on the present–being mindfully in the now as the client searches for meaning and tries to fill the deepest need of becoming whole.  Because of my strong faith perspective, I will not be the right match for all clients.

  • My goal from the beginning of counseling is to end counseling.  I do not see therapy as a life-time process.  I see it as a road to problem solving.
  • I do not accept insurance. My standard rate is $130 per session, three sessions for $300 or six sessions for $500.  However, if you cannot afford that rate, let’s talk about alternatives. I have made a spiritual commitment not to let my price get in the way of those I can serve.
  • The first consultation session does not commit you to any further sessions.  If we are not a fit, I will help you find someone who is….at any time in our relationship.
  • I have various options for meeting places.  Under certain conditions I can meet face to face with you at your location. I am also trained to do distance counseling through the use of web cam on a HIPPA compliant site.
  • My degrees are in education and in professional counseling.  I have a B.S.Ed. from Armstrong University in English Education (1987), an M.A.T. in English Education from Georgia State University (1991), and an M.S. in Professional Counseling from Georgia State University (1998).  I am ACSI certified in English, Counseling, and Administration and Supervision.
  • I am a member of the Christian Association of Psychological Studies and The Association for Contextual Behavioral Science.
  • My license is with the State. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor,license no. LPC008119. You may verify my license at sos.georgia.gov/PLB.
