THERAPY SERVICES

Individual, couple, and family therapy services are available if there is ever a time when you face personal or family problems which seem to extend beyond the limits of regular pastoral counseling - marital strife, separation, divorce, single parenting, blended family problems, grief recovery, acute stress, depression, drug and alcohol abuse, sexual or physical abuse - we offer compassionate care and real hope. 


All counselors are licensed by their respective Louisiana accreditation boards. 


Female counselors are available for children, adolescents, and women’s issues.


Confidentiality

All counseling matters are handled discretely and confidentially as privileged communication. We do not share information from the counseling office with anyone without your specific, written permission.


DIFFERENCES IN COUNSELING AND COACHING


Counseling – Focuses on problems dealing with conflict, insecurities, spiritual struggles, and emotional issues such as depression, anxiety and anger.


Coaching – Focuses on finding fulfillment, enhanced performance, team building, vision casting, career growth, family growth and reaching one’s goals and dreams.  Christian Coaching helps people discover their God given gifts and their callings.


Counseling – Will search to fix what is wrong, focusing on the causes of problems that arise from the past and on bringing healing and stability.  The counselor is the expert who treats patients, provides healing and directions.  Counseling is usually done by people with expertise in psychology, psychopathology and therapeutic skills.


Coaching – Encourages people to reach their goals.  It focuses on the present and the future, possibilities, reaching goals, getting unstuck, and turning dreams into reality.  Christian Coaching encourages people to follow their calling.  The coach and client are coequals who work together to bring change.  The best coaching is done by people with training in such coaching skills as listening, questioning and encouraging.  


Coaching deals mostly with a person’s present and seeks to guide him or her into a more desirable future.  


Christian Coaching is the art and practice of enabling individuals and groups to move from where they are to where God wants them to be.
