Do I really need therapy? I can usually handle my problems.
Everyone goes through challenging situations in life, and while you may have successfully navigated through other difficulties you've faced, there's nothing wrong with seeking out extra support when you need it. In fact, therapy is for people who have enough self-awareness to realize they need a helping hand, and that is something to be admired. You are taking responsibility by accepting where you're at in life and making a commitment to change the situation by seeking therapy. Therapy provides long-lasting benefits and support, giving you the tools you need to avoid triggers, re-direct damaging patterns, and overcome whatever challenges you face.
Why do people go to therapy and how do I know if it is right for me?
People have many different motivations for seeking counsel. Some may be going through a major life transition, or are not handling stressful circumstances well. Some people need assistance managing a range of other issues such as low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, addictions, relationship problems, spiritual conflicts and creative blocks. Therapy can help provide some much needed encouragement and help with skills to get them through these periods. Others may be at a point where they are ready to learn more about themselves and God or want to be more effective with their goals in life. In short, people seeking Godly counsel are ready to meet the challenges in their lives, ready to make changes in their lives, and ready to be victorious.

Does God's Way Christian Counseling accept insurance?
We do not accept insurance; therefore, our office is out of network for all insurance companies. Most insurance plans will reimburse their clients a percentage of out-of-pocket expenses. You can call your insurance company to ask if you have out-of-network benefits and if there is a deductible to be met. We will provide you with a receipt for our services, which can be submitted to your insurer to meet that deductible and/or obtain reimbursement for our professional services.
We accept FSA (Flexible Spending Account) Cards. If you have a FSA, you can also use funds through your FSA to cover costs of private pay, fee-for-service therapy or deductibles. Using your FSA can save you up to 30%, as you are using pre-tax dollars.
