How do I know if I am ready for counseling?
As you determine whether or not you need counseling, ask yourself if you are fulfilled in your life. If you find there are areas in your relationships, in your spiritual walk, or in your day-to-day thought life that are not functioning well, then it is likely time to seek counseling. The hardest part is making the first appointment.
How long is a counseling session?
The initial session is typically 90 minutes. Bonnie will conduct an assessment of what you are struggling with, discuss what you have tried in the past and also any concerns you have about counseling. Counseling sessions following that initial assessment session will generally be 50-60 minutes. When utilizing trauma therapy methods, counseling sessions often last 90 minutes.
How many counseling sessions will I need?
The number of sessions suggested will vary depending on individual needs and ability to work through an action plan. Our goals will be to help you resolve past hurts, gain freedom from your current struggles, receive hope for your future and find purpose and identity in God.
