who we are

Pennsylvania Counseling Services is an organization dedicated to helping others by using the method and manner which best fits the therapist and client.

We approach our work and our world with professionalism, a variety of treatment approaches, flexibility and humor.

We encourage individual styles within our operational structure. Therapy is an art, and the road to healing is a unique process for each individual.

our beginnings

Pennsylvania Counseling Services (formerly Pennsylvania Psychological Services) began as a sole proprietorship in 1983 out of the home of Roy and Jan Smith.

By the efforts of many, those small beginnings have grown to 26 mental health and addiction clinics serving 10 counties in South Central Pennsylvania.

PCS changed to its current name in 1993 and incorporated in 1995.

our management

Dr. Roy Smith serves as the corporation’s founder and CEO. Along with the Executive Board, he directs the entire management team during regular meetings to discuss changes and challenges facing the parts as well as the whole of Pennsylvania Counseling Services, Inc.

“It’s all about relationships… Our strength-based approach seeks to support children, adults, and families through their struggles, to help them develop healthy relationships, and ultimately, to help them reach their potential.”
