Jim Metcalf, MA

Life is deeply spiritual. From the moment we are born until the day we die, we are meant to be loved and accepted as we are so that we can enjoy life and serve others to our shared benefit. Often, though, it doesn’t seem to be working out that way. We hurt inside, feel pushed away and find ourselves pushing away others who could help us. 


Perhaps you have wished your pastor could understand and accept you, not just his own ideas about how people should be. Maybe you have been afraid to talk to a licensed psychologist or counselor because “they just wouldn’t understand my spirituality.” 


Jim Metcalf is both a limited license psychologist since 2001 and a recently retired pastor after 40 years of service to congregations. I can help you look at your hopes for the future, your present commitments and what you have learned in the past, to uncover what is keeping you from feeling good, loved and helpful to others. 



With extensive personal experience and education he can help you with family and spiritual problems, depression, anxiety, trauma and loss. You will be understood, your heart will be cared for, in the context of a private, confidential, nurturing relationship.
