Counseling

​SESSIONS

Your counseling session will last approximately 60 minutes. The frequency of sessions will be recommended on a case-by-case basis. Counseling is most effective when it is consistent. However, the goal of biblical counseling is to equip and resource you to counsel yourself from the Scriptures for present and future struggles. 


​HOMEWORK

Homework is an integral part of the biblical counseling process. It takes the counseling from the office to real life and encourages a deepening dependence on the Lord. Homework may include reading and listening materials, lists or logs, journaling, Scripture memory, Bible studies, as well as practical living assignments. Your effort and commitment to complete the assignments is very important. You will need to bring all completed homework with you to your counseling sessions.


​VIRTUAL COUNSELING

I am able to hold Facetime and Zoom sessions.



LOCAL CHURCH INVOLVEMENT

In order to achieve lasting and ongoing change, it is vital that you be established in a local church. If you do not have a church home, I would be glad to help you find one. God’s design is that change in your life take place in the context of community. Your pastor and church leaders are charged with the responsibility to oversee your spiritual growth and health. This counseling ministry is not intended to take the place of the local church, but rather to come alongside and support it by strengthening its members.

I welcome pastors, elders or a mature godly woman to accompany you to your counseling sessions. Please feel free to invite someone who can encourage you and hold you accountable during the counseling process. 


REQUIRED PAPERWORK

Please print out this Personal Data Information form and this Consent to Counsel form, fill them out, and bring them to your first appointment.





CHARGES/PAYMENT

The counseling fee is $75.00 dollars/hour. Payment is due at the time of service. An invoice will be immediately sent to your email address.  


The cost of homework materials is also the responsibility of the counselee.


We also have the option of a sliding scale if you are unable to pay the whole fee.  Your proof of income and W-2 would need to be submitted and reviewed for a possible scholarship when they are available.
