Licensed Marriage &

Family Counselor

Do you find yourself thinking ...

“My life looks great on the outside, so why do I feel so crummy on the inside?”

 “I need to make changes to my life, but can’t seem to take the first step.” 

“I cannot seem to shake some bad things that happened in my past.  They seem to follow me and affect my present.”

 

“I feel stuck and have no idea how to improve my life.”

 

“I am a smart person, so why do I continue to make the same bad decisions that lead me to the same place.”

 

Anyone seeking to improve their life and relationships can benefit from psychotherapy. One of the main things that leads to a successful outcome in counseling is to find a therapist who you trust and feel comfortable with as well as their skills, training, character, and experience.

BIOGRAPHY If you are considering beginning a counseling relationship with me, I want you to feel comfortable about who I am and my professional background and training. My name is Carl Baughman. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who has been counseling individuals and couples for 35 years. I treat the whole person—body, mind and soul, and believe that for real, deep change to occur the spiritual aspects have to be integrated into the therapeutic process. I believe that observing one’s past often brings insight into the present and I encourage clients to explore where their difficulties began. I enjoy witnessing positive outcomes from clients who are willing to work hard and be honest to better understand themselves and enact the change they are seeking. I obtained my undergraduate degree from Shippensburg University and a Master of Divinity from Bethany Theological Seminary. I also have a Master's in Counseling from Wright State University and I was a resident in a two-year residency for pastoral counseling and marriage and family therapy. I’ve participated in post graduate studies at various universities of higher learning and I continue to attend numerous continuing events in order to stay abreast of the latest research. I am a Clinical Member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapists as well as an ordained minister. I’ve directed several counseling centers, the latest being the Samaritan Counseling Center of Western PA. I retired as the Executive Director of this center after 24 years in 2017. I am married and my wife and I have two adult sons.

SERVICES I enjoy helping individuals, couples, and families build a future where they feel freed from past traumas and are able to live in fulfilling relationships. I’ve helped clients deal with: Depression Anxiety Grief Loss Low self-esteem Overwhelming guilt Traumatic events Communication skills Broken trust Marital issues Family conflict
