Intake session is preferred before any other session as your counselor will have to gather information required for successful treatment planning.
In the initial session, your counselor will help you define what you would like to gain from the counseling experience. After the assessment, your counselor will work with you to develop a plan to help you meet your particular goals.
We respect your right to confidentiality and will guard that right as we are permitted by law and our ethical standards. We will not divulge information you disclose, except in the following situations: (a) you threaten to harm yourself or others, (b) you ask us to disclose information to a third party, (c) there is reasonable suspicion of neglect or abuse against a minor child, an elderly person (65 or older), or a dependent adult, or (d) we are ordered to disclose information by a judge or court order.
PhilosophyOur therapists approach counseling from a Christian and psychological perspective point of view. This means that in the course of therapy, emphasis will be placed on relational patterns and interaction with others.
