Counseling


 OUR PASTORAL CARE TEAM IS HAPPY TO PRAY FOR YOU AND SHARE BIBLICAL WISDOM WITH YOU; HOWEVER, SOMETIMES PROFESSIONAL HELP IS NEEDED. WHEN CHOOSING A COUNSELOR, IT IS OFTEN HELPFUL TO DISCUSS HOW MUCH YOU WANT THE COUNSELOR’S FAITH TO BE PART OF THE PROCESS, WHAT THE END GOALS ARE, AND HOW CANCELLATIONS AND EMERGENCY MEETINGS ARE HANDLED. ALSO, WE RECOMMEND YOU CHECK WITH YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY REGARDING SPECIFIC PROVIDERS BEFOREHAND. YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO VIEW ANY COUNSELOR’S PROFESSIONAL BIO BEFORE WORKING WITH THEM AND IT IS HELPFUL TO THINK OF THE FIRST MEETING AS AN INTERVIEW OF SORTS. YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE ANY COUNSELOR IS ONE THAT YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH AND COMES FROM A PERSPECTIVE YOU VALUE.
