"I have inscribed you on the palm of My hand."
Welcome to Shepherd's Heart Counseling, a ministry of Christ Church United Methodist in Port Jefferson Station, New York, where Rev. Randy Paige has been serving as senior Pastor since June, 1985.
The goal of Shepherd's Heart Counseling is to provide Christ-centered, professional counseling to individuals, couples, families; and to be available to
Churches as a consultant.
What is Pastoral Counseling?
“There is a God-shaped vacuum in the heart of every human being that
cannot be filled by any created thing but only by God the creator, made known
by Jesus Christ.” Blaise Pascal, 1662
Psyche (Soul) ~ Therapeuo (Healing)
As a Pastor I have always thought of myself as a practitioner of the soul, helping people identify and fill the God-shaped hole in their heart.
As a Counselor I have always believed that in times of trouble God presents Himself as a strong refuge with a passionate desire to heal and restore His children (Psalm 46:1). Jesus told us when He was returning to the Father that He would send the counselor, the Spirit of truth (John 15:26).
The foundation of Shepherd's Heart Counseling is a commitment to Biblical truth and the integration of clinical excellence.
Counseling appointments are made by phone or e-mail.
Setting: Counseling generally takes place at the Church in the Pastor's office or another private room.
Thank you for visiting this site.
May God be exalted, the Holy Spirit invited, and Jesus Christ be seen in all
of our counseling and helping endeavors. If done, clients and parishioners
will be blessed and not harmed, their wounds will be healed, their sins
forgiven, and they will be given hope for the future. If done, we will participate
in a wonderful adventure - one that will likely never grow old or stale - and we
fulfill our call to excellence and ethical integrity in Christian counseling.
In Christ, Aways,

relationship with God, self, and others. Through the Intensives, our
team members accomplish three very important goals: restoring
couples, remaining connected to God's desire and ability to transform
marriages, and to continue learning, applying, and teaching the life-
