What types of customers have you worked with?
My services are based upon a Biblical foundation and my 30+ years experience as a pastor / counselor. I have seen God resolve issues of the heart and emotions that have caused conflict and turmoil within interpersonal relationships (marriage & family), and individual problems related to self esteem and substance dependence.
Stressing an importance of a proper personal relationship with God, I have helped clients to realize the biblical principles that will resolve their conflicts when properly understood and consistently applied.
When dealing with addiction and low self esteem, I have seen God move to redeem and restore by revealing the exact source of the conflict, and providing reasonable alternative.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
My advice to al prospective clients is to first decide why they are really seeking counsel. Sometimes people haven't considered their emotional response to whatever conflict has caused them to seek counsel. Without a proper evaluation of the real issues, pinpointing the exact cause is virtually impossible.
If we don't properly identify the cause, we can't remedy the problem. Therefore I provide an initial free consultation where we explore these issues to determine what counsel is appropriate, before engaging them in any commitment.
I recommend establishing a goals oriented set of sessions that will progressively move a client away from their problem to full and complete remedy in a minimal, but expedient time frame.
Therefore, I ask them to compare my services to others before entering into any counseling.
