Counseling Resources

updated: October 2019

Selecting a counselor is a highly individual and personal process.  The following counselors and resources are provided in alphabetical order and will be updated periodically.  We recommend that you talk to your prospective counselor to make sure you are comfortable with their qualifications, experience, and their approach to counseling.  If you have specific questions or need help in selecting a counselor, feel free to contact Dave Wiedis, Director of Counseling, Providence Church, at or 610-517-0437.

A Deeper Journey 

Deeper Journey is a two-year, eight-retreat experience held at Sandy Cove Christian Conference & Retreat Center located on the headwaters of the Chesapeake Bay in North East, Maryland. It provides a comprehensive spiritual formation experience in light of the unique challenges of life and ministry in the 21st century. The quarterly retreats offer an integrated approach of biblical theology and Christian psychology within a worshiping community. The experience includes worship, teaching, small groups, and personal time. Each retreat highlights at least one spiritual discipline and provides space for the engagement of the discipline.

Deeper Journey is designed for those who are serious about nurturing and protecting their souls. If this is what you desire and can give a day and a half every three months, we invite you to let us know of your interest in the next Deeper Journey community!
