Intimacy and passion,
I've been seeing Ciara for about 8 months now, I had a long road prior of mental illness and different therapist and treatment centers prior to Jesus doing a huge work in my life. I started looking for biblical/pastoral counseling when a close family member died. With that being said, in comparison to other counseling I've done, Ciara has been my favorite. Ciara is very warm friendly, extremely empathetic and compassionate. An amazing listener and always points you back to the Lord. She really goes above and beyond to do all she can to help you while maintaining professional boundaries. She's truly been a beacon of light in my life these past few months. She's been extremely patient, understanding, and encouraging. Always praying with me and for me. I'm definitely blessed that God saw fit to use her in my life & I'm grateful to have someone like her to continue to provide me with sound, biblical counsel.Aug 20, 2020
Ciara always creates a environment where I feel supported, and never judged. I’ve since began opening up, and begin the healing process.Aug 27, 2020
I have had a great overall experience with Ciara!Aug 26, 2020
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?We offer 50 minuses sessions for $60 for those who would struggle paying $60 a session but would like to still have counseling can fill out our financial aid form. This will then be submitted to our board for review. They will decide if the person qualifies for aid and how much they will qualify for.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to keep things very relaxed. Before our first session I will have you fill out an intake form which helps me better understand your reason for coming in. We then take time talking about why you have come in and what you would like to focus on in our sessions. Before we end I will have you complete an APS profiling test ($45) which helps me understand your most basic needs and how I can help you get those needs met in healthy ways. If at the end of our first session you are comfortable with how things have gone we will set up another session in order to get the prosses of healing started. I will also go over the results of your APS report in our next session.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am an ordained minister of pastoral care which I have received from Experience Ministries. I am also a certified temperament counselor & professional clinical member of NCCA I also have a Biblical counseling certificate from CCEF.
