What's New at Sanctuary

It’s been a season of change for us, and we’re excited to share some of them with you. You may have noticed some changes to this website today –

  • many more pages giving more information about all the things we offer;

  • many new and exciting options to help you heal;

  • new pictures and a unified color scheme to tie it all together;

  • tag lines that reflect what we do in a better way.


We’ve added a page that talks about why we believe insurance for mental health issues isn’t a good idea, and how, because we don’t take insurance, we can be over-the-top confidential.           


We’re promising no one will have access to our records – they will all stay in our offices. All the time, unless you wish us to share them. Never in the Cloud. Never on the ‘Net.  Safely locked behind three locks. That’s one more than the industry standard.


You’re safe here.


We’ve also added information about our new speaking engagements. In reality, we’ve already begun speaking on these issues, as recently as last week. However, we haven’t really talked about them here. Now we do. Check out Sanctuary speaks! We would love to come and share our expertise with your organization or group.


We also have revised our group therapy plans. We have continued our group for self-esteem for teen girls, Building Beautiful, which will begin again in early winter. But we have also added a new, similar group, for adult women, Developing Beautiful. We are hoping to help many women see themselves through God’s eyes as the lovely people they are, a difficult task in today’s selfie-saturated social media culture.


We have continued to offer the same great quality therapy as always in our Shippensburg offices, which have been updated again. We’ve added a refrigerator filled with great drinks (Starbucks frappes, sparkling water, gourmet teas) to our waiting room. We’re aiming to be tasteful and welcoming in our physical office space, as well as continuing to provide skilled counselors and therapists to help you live your best life.We intend to be the compassionate, creative Christian therapists in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania.


Most of all, although we’ve made changes, we haven’t really changed. We are still dedicated to helping grieving individuals, distressed teens and couples in conflict find peace, solutions and connection.
