Belief Statement

Professional Christian Counseling integrates the best theory and proven methods of the mental health profession with Biblical truths and spiritual practices to produce "Christ-like" character, behavior, and contentment in the lives of the people served.

Clients can expect to receive professional Christian counseling built from biblical wisdom and Christian spiritual formation, combined with current mental health practices. The counseling, available here, is holistic in that it is oriented toward a bio-psycho-social-spiritual assessment and intervention. I believe the goal of treatment is to address the mental and emotional issues with the goal of growing in Christian maturity.


Confidentiality

All information that you provide during a session is confidential, other than to insurance companies (if you choose to use insurance). Records or any information shared will not be divulged to anyone without discussing this with you first. You would indicate your consent by signing a "Release of Information" form. Exceptions to this include my responsibility to report any instance of suspected child abuse or neglect, any situation in which a client threatens to harm themselves or another person, (these are both Georgia State laws), and any situation that my records are subpoenaed by the court and I will be held in contempt of court if I fail to comply.


Fees & Insurance Policies

Services are provided at a rate of $125.00 for a 50-minute session.

Insurance policies are a contractual agreement between you, the subscriber, and the insurance company. I can in no way alter the policy nor guarantee what services are covered or ascertain what your reimbursement will be for my services.


Cancellation Policy

Please give a 24-hour notice, per email, if you need to cancel or wish to change your appointment. In case of emergencies, call as soon as possible. There will be a full-session charge for appointments not kept or cancelled according to the 24-hour policy requirements.
