Dr. D. Merle Skinner


I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in PA, and provide mental health and counseling services integrated from a biblical and Christian worldview. I also have Educational certifications in Early through K-12 Education, and serve as an adjunct professor in several Christian Higher Education Institutions. I am the Executive Director of the Christian Family & Children’s Center which I was a part of the founding in 1981 because of a passion to see the Christian Community provide distinctly Christian services in the context of a world that sees the family falling apart. It has been my desire to provide an organization that can contribute to the effort of helping families and children in a truly biblical way. To that end, I have devoted my career to accomplishing that purpose. My undergraduate background is in Child Development from the University of Pittsburgh. My Master’s Degree is in Organizational Leadership from Geneva College, and my Doctoral Degree is in Counseling Psychology from Argosy University. I do individual as well as family counseling in person, and virtually via phone and video.
