Telephone and Email Consultations

We do not conduct clinical counseling sessions via telephone or Internet. When circumstances dictate, we may consult by telephone or email. Contact your counselor to arrange a consultation.

Purposeful Flexibility

We offer extended, flexible hours to ensure immediate availability. Our clients choose from 4 licensed therapists offering up to 100 appointment times each week, with 21 of these after 5PM and 5 on Saturday. We offer more hours so our clients can fulfill family, work, school, church, and other responsibilities. And when a client’s schedule cannot be reconciled with our hours of operation, we negotiate a time that fits.

What to Bring to the Counseling Session

Clients make better use of the time by being punctual, bringing a completed intake form, and preparing to present their questions and concerns as clearly as possible. Many find it helpful to write their questions and concerns and bring them to the session.

Clients are encouraged to bring a notebook and pen to take notes and write down additional questions. Some bring a Bible (in the version with which they are most familiar), self-help books, and printouts from websites they have found helpful.

We recommend clients dress comfortably. Many feel cold when they are anxious, so it is good to bring a sweater or a sweatshirt.

Some choose to bring a friend or family member, either to participate in the session or to sit in the waiting room during the session. We believe healthy relationships are the key to healing, so we welcome these participants and visitors.

We also ask clients to bring a method of payment to the session. Click here for more information.

Please do not bring children unless they will be participating in the counseling session.
