  • Do I really need Faith-based counseling?  I can usually handle my problems.
    Everyone goes through challenging situations in life, and while you may have successfully navigated through other difficulties you've faced, there's nothing wrong with seeking out extra support when you need it. In fact, Faith-based counseling can be an alternative process for people who have enough self-awareness to realize they need a helping hand, and that is something to be admired. You are taking responsibility by accepting where you're at in life and making a commitment to change the situation by seeking Faith-based counseling. Faith-based counseling can provide long-lasting benefits and support, giving you the specialized tools you need to avoid triggers, re-direct damaging patterns, and overcome whatever challenges you face.
  • Why do people go to Faith-based counseling and how do I know if it is right for me?
    People have many different motivations for coming to Faith-based counseling. Some may be going through a major life transition (unemployment, divorce, new job, etc.), or are not handling stressful circumstances well. Some people need assistance managing a range of other issues such as low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, addictions, relationship problems, spiritual conflicts and creative blocks. Faith-based counseling can help provide some much needed encouragement and help with skills to get them through these periods. Others may be at a point where they are ready to learn more about themselves or want to be more effective with their goals in life. In short, people seeking Faith-based counseling are ready to meet the challenges in their lives and ready to make changes in their lives from an alternative perspective.
  • What is Faith-based counseling like?
    Because each person has different issues and goals for Faith-based counseling , Faith-based counseling will be different depending on the individual. In general, you can expect to discuss the current events happening in your life, your personal history relevant to your issue, and report progress (or any new insights gained) from the previous counseling sessions. Depending on your specific needs, Faith-based counseling can be short-term, for a specific issue, or longer-term, to deal with more difficult patterns or your desire for more personal development. Either way, it is most common to schedule regular sessions with your Faith-based counselor (usually weekly). It is important to understand that you will get more results from Faith-based counseling if you actively participate in the process. The ultimate purpose of Faith-based counseling is to help you bring what you learn in session back into your life from a faith-based perspective. Therefore, beyond the work you do in Faith-based counseling sessions, your Faith-based counselor may suggest some things you can do outside of Faith-based counseling to support your process - such as reading a pertinent book, journaling on specific topics, meditation, prayer, noting particular behaviors or taking action on your goals. People seeking Faith-based counseling are ready to make positive changes in their lives, are open to alternative new perspectives and take responsibility for their lives.
  • What about medication vs. Faith-based counseling?
    It is well established that the long-term solution to mental and emotional problems and the pain they cause cannot be solved solely by medication. Instead of just treating the symptom, Faith-based counseling can address the cause of our distress and the behavior patterns that curb our progress. You can best achieve sustainable growth and a greater sense of well-being with an integrative approach to wellness. Working with your medical doctor you can determine what's best for you, and in some cases a combination of medication and Faith-based counseling is the right course of action.
  • Do you take insurance, and how does that work?"
    No, at this time we are not accepting any form of insurance payments for Faith-based counseling services.
  • Does what we talk about in Faith-based counseling remain confidential?
    Confidentiality is one of the most important components between a client and Faith-based counselor. Successful Faith-based counseling requires a high degree of trust with highly sensitive subject matter that is usually not discussed anywhere but the Faith-based counselor's office. Every Faith-based counselor should provide a written copy of their confidential disclosure agreement, and you can expect that what you discuss in session will not be shared with anyone. This is called “Informed Consent”. Sometimes, however, you may want your Faith-based counselor to share information or give an update to someone on your care team (your Physician, Naturopath, Attorney, Pastor or Spiritual Leader), but by law your Faith-based counselor cannot release this information without obtaining your written permission.
