The Westminster Samaritan Counseling Center

Providing hope and healing through the resources of faith.


Counseling should always bring us closer to becoming the person God intends us to be. At the Westminster Samaritan Counseling Center, we work on bringing the many facets of a person’s life into a harmonious union. We include the mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual dimensions of who you are. We help our clients gain skills that enable them to confront the realities of life, develop solutions to stressful situations and learn to maintain the growth achieved.

We believe that effective counseling takes place in a trusting relationship between client and counselor. Our therapists are caring professionals, dedicated to helping people grow beyond their present situations.
The Westminster Samaritan Counseling Center provides one-on-one counseling for adults, children, adolescents, couples, and families. We also provide spiritual direction, grief support services, group seminars, and retreats.


The Samaritan Counseling Center is fully accredited by the Samaritan institute in Denver, Colorado, which is recognized by The American Medical Association, The President’s Commission on Mental Health, The American Association of Pastoral Counselors, and major church denominations.

All of the therapists are state licensed and/or certified by a professional organization. All therapists have one or more Master’s degrees and participate in continuing education, peer review and ongoing supervision. We have a consulting psychiatrist.

Our counselors are committed to uphold professional ethical standards which demand strict confidentiality and the utmost regard for the value of the client’s time, finances and person.


A primary goal for us is that professional counseling be affordable without compromising quality, regardless of the client’s ability to pay.

Many of our services are reimbursable using health care insurance. An adjusted fee can also be arranged, based on a family’s gross income. The Samaritan Counseling Center is an ecumenical, non-profit corporation funded by fees for services and by contributions from churches, businesses, civic groups, individuals and foundations.

Contributions to our Client Aid Fund enable us to offer our services on an adjusted fee basis. If you would like to make a contribution to our center, please contact our main office at 412-854-4530.




At the Westminster Samaritan Counseling Center, counseling is provided by appointment only. We will assess your concern and discuss the ways we can assist you. In addition to daytime hours, some evening appointments are available.

To schedule an appointment, please call 412-854-4530.
