The Counseling Ministry is located at Oaklands Presbyterian Church in Laurel, MD, and offers affordable counseling and psychotherapy for individuals, couples, and families. Throughout the year, various workshops and seminars are also offered on such themes as the spiritual dimensions of self-esteem and improving communications. Fees for counseling services are charged on a sliding scale according to family income and circumstances. The Counseling Ministry also publishes two newsletters, In Earthen Vessels, intended for congregational newsletters, and Ministry Workshop, which is offered to members of the clergy and other interested persons in the helping professions. Both are available upon request at no charge.
The Counseling Ministry is staffed by the Rev. John V. "Jack" Carlson, an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church (USA), and a pastoral counselor with more than fifteen years of experience. He holds degrees from Waynesburg College, Princeton Theological Seminary, and Loyola College of Maryland. He is a member of the American Association of Pastoral Counselors and a Certified Professional Counselor in the state of Maryland. Before establishing the Counseling Ministry in 1995, Jack served congregations in Lockport, NY, and Hyattsville, MD, and served on the staff of two pastoral counseling centers. In addition to his counseling practice, Jack serves as Parish Associate at Oaklands Presbyterian Church, and frequently preaches at congregations in the Washington metropolitan area. He is currently working on a book on the spiritual dimensions of self-esteem.
