Resources - Counseling

Licensed or Pastoral Counseling

Provided for small fees by registered graduates of Corban University’s Mental Health Dept, supervised by Lori Schelske, Licensed Therapist.

 Fees for Service: Fee for service is based on ability to pay and will be discussed with your counselor. Different payment options and pricing scales available

Counseling Coordinator: Lori Schelske, M.A., LMFT -- Lori is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Clinical Supervisor.  She is also on the faculty at Corban University Counseling Department as an Assistant Professor of Counseling/Director of the Corban University Mental Health Clinic (part of the Salem Free Clinics).  Lori supervises Counseling graduates from Corban University as they work to gain hours for licensure, enabling JBC to provide services and meet more needs at lower fees.   Please pray that God would use the counseling ministry at JBC to help people who are hurting and to further His Kingdom.  Pray also for wisdom and sensitivity for the counselors.

Jessica Augsburger:  I recently finished up the Masters of Arts in Counseling Program at Corban and I couldn't be more excited to see what God has planned for me. In the program I had the privilege to intern at the Salem Free Clinic as well as at Corban University's campus. I saw a wide variety of clients who have prepared me for what is to come.

Lin Brownell:  Recently earned a Masters degree in Counseling at Corban University, and she recently interned at Salem Free Clinic, working with a variety of clients and issues. My passion is to see the church participate in making mental health care more available to those who otherwise could not afford it.

Pastoral Counseling at JBC (Free counseling provided as a ministry to the body of JBC for non-trauma or crisis intervention needs)

Cliff Duke: Cliff is a minister at Jefferson Baptist Church and has been working in the Pastoral and Christian Education ministry for over 30 years and counsels primarily with couples on marriage issues and meets with men in a mentoring/accountability setting.
