Because Dr. Chapman serves on staff at his church, writes, and speaks at conferences around the country, he is, unfortunately, unable to accept any new counseling clients. If you are looking for a counselor, we recommend speaking with a pastor or counselor at your local church. Although Dr. Gary Chapman does not specifically endorse any counselors, two popular options for finding a Christian counselor are to visit the American Association of Christian Counselors’ website or call the Meier Clinics’ toll-free number,1-888-7CLINIC
