    Meet the Program for Psychology and Religion Staff

    The staff members of the Program for Psychology and Religion include physicians, psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors and spiritual directors.

    They collaborate with the staff of other divisions of the Saint Louis Behavioral Medicine Institute to provide the full range of behavioral health care services.

    We work to achieve a true integration of empirically based psychological and psychiatric care, respect for the religious faith of each client, and recognition of the spiritual dimension of psychological and medical issues.
