Dramatic change in cost and delivery of counseling services
Dramatic change in cost and delivery of counseling services
From Dr. Eugene J. Koprowski, MD, MA, LLM
You know my colleagues, Sam and Bunny Sewell, and their pastoral psychotherapy practice, Best Self USA, the leading pastoral counseling clinic here in the Naples area. (See News Release Below) Like any practice, the clinic needs to grow to stay strong. We’d like your help with that!
We’re asking our clergy colleagues to refer to us parishioners, or others, who might benefit from counseling, whether it is for marital counseling and executive coaching (two of Rev. Sam and Bunny’s specialties) ordrug and alcohol abuse counseling, grief counseling, orcounseling of clergy, lay leaders and health care personnel, which are my specialties. We are available to clergy and lay leaders, both locally and nationwide. Many times Christian leaders are reluctant to talk about their stressful situations to fellow members, since confidentiality is of utmost concern.
House Calls – Via The Internet
By asking our colleagues to recommend us to potential new patients we do two things: first, we are able to spend more time on patient support, and second, we bring more people like you into our extended professional family, delivering counseling services to those who might not otherwise seek it out, or those whom you may not feel you have the time or expertise to help. As you know from your ministry, there are many souls in need of help who simply will not ask their own pastor for that help, out of discomfort. Sam and Bunny’s e-Therapy – offered via the Internet and telephone – makes pastoral counseling services available to the patients who need it most in the privacy of their own homes. These have the advantage of old-fashioned house calls, that can be accomplished via telephone or through 21st Century Skype/Internet technology.
Would you be kind enough to recommend us to congregants or friends you encounter who may be in need of pastoral counseling? We will then send out a friendly letter of introduction, an overview of what we do, and a copy of our news release which is attached to this letter.
I am very pleased to be on board with Best Self USA. I have been a priest and pastoral counselor for more than a decade, with the Orthodox Church (Patriarchy of Kiev and All Russia, Diocese of Chicago.) I am a graduate of the University of Chicago and Northwestern University, and a physician, trained at the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College, University of London, as well as.
I’ve been a staff clinician at a leading hospital in Chicago, and have also served as a consultant to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and U.S. Army Medical Command.
Working with Sam and Bunny – whom I met through the American Association of Pastoral Psychotherapists – is a pleasure. I am very enthused at their model of low-cost, high-impact Skype/Internet-based therapy, which makes pastoral counseling services available to patients at a dramatically reduced cost, and that can be delivered in the privacy of their own homes.
Best Regards, Dr. Eugene J. Koprowski, MD, MA, LLM

"Though defensive violence will always be 'a sad necessity' in the eyes of men of principle, it would be still more unfortunate if wrongdoers should dominate just men." - St. Augustine
"A new idea is first condemned as ridiculous, and then dismissed as trivial, until finally it becomes what everybody knows." -
"This is the real task before us: to reassert our commitment as a nation to a law higher than our own, to renew our spiritual strength. Only by building a wall of such spiritual resolve can we, as a free people, hope to protect our own heritage and make it someday the birthright of all men." --Ronald Reagan
A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government." -- Edward Abbey
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse. A man who has nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety is a miserable creature who has no chance at being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." John Stuart Mill
"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government." ~~~George Washington
"I'd rather entrust the government of the United States to the first 400 people listed in the Boston telephone directory than to the faculty of Harvard University." William F. Buckley, Jr.
"Conservatives are enemies of the government. Liberals are enemies of the nation because they are not enemies of the government." Aristotle the Hun

“A nation that substitutes emotion and empathy for rational thought will eventually digress into the Dark Ages,” Congressman Steve King (R-IA),
INTEGRITY: The highest courage is to dare to be ourself in the face of adversity. Choosing ethics over convenience and truth over popularity means there is never a wrong time to do the right thing.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies.
The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
They may be more likely to go to Heaven for good intentions yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be “cured” against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.~ C. S. Lewis

This blog was started to give people a source of information they can trust. I almost never make the mistake of including scams, false rumors, or poorly researched items. I encourage readers to alert me if they spot an anomaly. It will be quickly corrected.
The search function is in the upper left hand corner. Readers are invited to cut and paste from this blog to your own emails. Each subject title has an embedded link so cut and paste the title and the first few lines. That will direct a person back to this blog.
Below the usual ad and personal profile you will find links to topics located on the right hand side of the page. You may find it easier to select topics of interest to you rather than scrolling all topics as they occur chronologically. (Gee, that's a six syllable word!)
The government is conspiring against the citizens. The citizens have pitchforks, torches, tea bags, tea parties, Grand Juries and the Constitution. The government doesn't stand a chance!
