Russ Silipigni

Russ holds a Master’s degree in Pastoral Counseling and approaches his clients with empathy and understanding. He firmly believes that God, who knows our hearts and minds (Ps. 139:13-15), can restore and heal us through Christ’s love and the Holy Spirit changing us from the inside out (2 Cor. 3:18). This belief fuels his passion for guiding individuals and couples through their challenges and crises toward a more fulfilling life that Christ promises (John 10:10). Russ also believes that God’s common grace on humanity allows us to gain valuable insight from psychology. Whether it’s a matter of physics, finances, medicine, or the soul, all truth derives from God, and He can use it to provide comfort and healing.

Recognizing that life is not without its share of troubles (John 16:33), Russ is committed to walking alongside and encouraging couples and individuals facing challenges and crises. His ultimate goal is to help them find a life of fulfillment through a deeper relationship with the triune God. He works with individuals (men 18 years and older) and couples (married and contemplating marriage) through virtual 50 minute sessions. He is a certified Prepare|Enrich facilitator and Gottman Method Level I and II Couples certified. His rate is $100 per session.

“May the God of hope fill you with joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that YOU may be filled with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” (emphasis added, Rom. 15:13).
