- Face to Face – Office
Traditional counseling in the sense that you travel to our office. This is the best format for dealing with any concerns mild to severe. Fee is paid at the end of each session.
Meeting face-to-face allows client and counselor to be fully present with each other. Your counselor will be able to observe your facial expressions, reactions, movements, tone of voice… This type of counseling provides the best opportunity to help you grow emotionally. Counseling is primarily meant to provide a client the care, nurturing, and attention they haven’t been able to yet receive. When meeting face-to-face is not possible, convenience counseling is a good second choice, and had positives too. However, nothing can replace relating face-to-face as God originally intended.
Convenience counseling (also called technology-assisted, or online) is more accessible to more people more of the time. We can use Phone, Video, Chat, or Email to meet for an appointment. We provide counseling/coaching for non life-threatening concerns. If your need turns out to be urgent or life-threatening, your counselor will encourage you to find a counselor you can meet with face-to-face and may decline to provide further services without the ability to meet face-to-face. Fee must be prepaid. More details about convenience counseling.
Choose a Therapy Focus
Counselors provide therapy specific to our client’s needs. You can request the specific type of counseling that will best help you.
Share what’s on your mind and heart, and then receive personalized feedback that speaks into your life situation. Also called talk-therapy, this type of counseling forms the foundation for all the other counseling methods.
One hour is sometimes not enough time to catch-up on what’s happened since your last session, move into your concerns, let insight develop, and set in the changes you want. Intensive counseling is more efficient as it minimizes stopping in the middle of a therapeutic moment.
You can spend time talking and relating with your counselor in session, but you can also request to have your counselor spend extended time praying for you. You can check to see how you are connecting with God, then share how you are doing with your counselor. Your counselor can provide focused prayer and spiritual direction to help facilitate your relationship with Jesus.
