We understand that you may have many questions about our services.  Here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions.  If you have a question that is not addressed on this site, please contact us by phone or by e-mail.

I noticed that the name of your service is called "Christian Intervention Counseling."  What makes your "Christian" services different from that of any regular counselor?
There is a distinct difference between Christian counseling and counseling of a secular nature.  We believe that the ultimate cure to any of life's problems rests upon Jesus.  We integrate the fundamental teachings of Jesus and the Bible into our counseling services.  Whereas many people think that the strength to overcoming problems lies within oneself, the Bible teaches that, without Jesus, we can do nothing (John 15:5).  It is the power of Jesus that can transform people's lives and his message for us is found throughout the pages of Scripture.  Hebrews 4:12 declares, "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."

Do I have to be a Christian or of a certain denomination to receive counseling services?
Even though our services are primarily based upon Christian principles, we offer services to anyone who seeks our help, regardless of  his or her background.

What are your regular office hours?  Do you accept walk-in appointments?
Because of the rigorous schedule of our counselors, please contact us by phone or by e-mail to set up an appointment.

Will my counseling sessions be kept confidential?
Rest assured, all information exchanged between counselor and client are of the utmost importance and are strictly confidential.  Only in certain rare circumstances, namely, child abuse, intent to commit suicide, or intent to harm oneself or another person, are our counselors legally mandated to report to the proper authorities.

What is the purpose of Christian counseling?  If I am a Christian, all I have to do is pray and God will solve my problems.  Only people who do not know God need any sort of counseling.
It is a common misconception that Christians are not in need of any counseling and that, upon receiving professional help, it is evident of a lack of faith. Proverbs 12:20 states, "Deceit is in the heart of them that imagine evil: but to the counselors of peace is joy."  Proverbs 15:22 says, "Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counselors they are established."  In Isaiah 9:6, we see that one of Jesus' main role was to be a Counselor, and if Jesus is our perfect example (I Peter 2:21), then we ought to follow Jesus' steps and provide counsel to those in need.  Jesus' life is replete with examples in which He offered much need spiritual guidance (Matthew 19:16-21; John 4:4-30) and it is our job to do the same.
