We’re here to help those inside and outside the church with spiritual, emotional, relational, and mental health challenges.

Orangewood has a mental health counselor on staff who provides individual, couples, and family therapy for a variety of issues. If our counselor is not able to provide sufficient help for your particular struggle, he will gladly direct you to other resources. His experience includes the following issues:

Anger, anxiety, depression, and suicidal feelings Shame, self-image, or condemning thoughts
Recovery from trauma and abuse Struggles with sexuality
Spiritual confusion or doubt Issues related to calling and ministry
Premarital counseling Marital, parenting, or family issues
Grief and loss Substance abuse and addictive behaviors
Academic, career, and workplace issues


Our Counselor

Parker, IMH 18528, received his MA in Counseling from Reformed Theological Seminary. He was a student ministry leader with RUF during his undergraduate years at Northwestern. He has since worked with students at a high school in the Bronx, juvenile sex offenders at a group home in Massachusetts, and distressed families throughout Orlando. Parker also spent a year in Nicaragua learning Spanish and managing an ice cream shop with his older brother.

Parker believes that because we are most profoundly wounded in the context of relationships, and it is in this context that we are most deeply healed. He places a strong emphasis on safety and trust within the counseling relationship.

Parker enjoys good conversations, playing sports or board games with friends, and reading aloud with his beautiful wife, Chelsea.


If you would like to connect with Parker, please email



The initial consultation is completely free. After that, the suggested donation to meet with our counselors is $75 per session, but money should never keep anyone from getting the help they need.  Just ask Parker about the available options.
