“Our clients’ past histories and future stories are squarely in God’s hands.  I see my role as being a resource to help them navigate the chapter they’re currently writing.” - Tom Kneier

 

Tom’s career has traversed a broad and diverse landscape including professional counseling, pastoral ministry, higher education administration, and social services, particularly for the homeless population.  His therapeutic experience has ranged from family systems to geriatric counseling, and included work in both a general practice and a psychiatric private practice.

Having earned his B.A. in Psychology and M.A. in Counseling from Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio, Tom held his LPCC (Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor) in the State of Ohio for 20 years, his NCC (National Certified Counselor) for 17 years, and has held his LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor) in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania since 2006.  In addition to Tom's broad range of skills as a therapist, he is also a nationally certified anger management counselor who provides both individual and group therapy. Furthermore, he is a qualified administrator for the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and the Clifton Strengths Finder, both of which are valuable in areas such as career counseling, job transitions, and couples counseling.

As a father of seven and a grandfather of sixteen, Tom adds the wisdom that comes from life experience and valuable lessons learned especially from inevitable mistakes. Tom has compassionately served clients at Samaritan for years, offering his services in person and via teletherapy.
