Dr. Chads Pastoral Counseling and Virtual Counselor specialties include Couples Counseling, Family Counseling, Grief Counseling and general Spiritual Counseling.
Pastoral counseling is a branch of counseling in which psychologically trained ministers, rabbis, priests, imams, and other persons provide therapy services.
The distinguishable differences from pastoral counseling and other forms of counseling and psychotherapy is the role and accountability of the counselor and his or her understanding and expression of the pastoral relationship. Pastoral counselors are representatives of the central images of life and its meaning affirmed by their religious communities. Therefore, pastoral counseling creates a relationship to the understanding of life and faith. Pastoral counselors use psychological and theological references to deepen understanding of internal conflicts.
Very few pastoral counselors are capable of providing effective results as a virtual counselor. Dr. Chad has the experience, knowledge and spiritual wisdom to guide you, your relationship and your family back on track.
Virtual counselors have no limits or constraints of specific locations. Dr. Chad Alexander has performed couples counseling for couples both in the same city and those managing a distance relationship. In family counseling situations, virtual counseling can actually be a huge benefit over in person sessions. Virtual counselors can minimize in person conflict through the use of technology.
