Our Counselors

What sets Insight Christian Counseling apart from other counseling? Our counseling is Heart Focused, Gospel Centered. The Bible says that the heart is the core of who you are and is what drives everything you do. True, lasting change only occurs at the level of your heart. And the power of God is the only thing that can change your heart. Counseling is offered regardless of a person's ability to pay or insurance coverage.Call 215-947-6465 to schedule an appointment or find out more. Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life. Proverbs 4:23 (NIV)
