Individual counseling


Our counselors can walk with you through a variety of life’s challenges. Our goal in counseling is to guide you towards emotional and spiritual wholeness. 

You may be unsure of the exact nature of your struggle. You may not know how to name it. Our counselors can help identify the issues you face and recommend a path of healing and recovery. 

We provide a safe place for you to process, and we help you navigate through life transitions and particular areas, including the following.

These are only a sample of the many challenges our counselors are trained to support and guide you through.

 

 


Dating and premarital counseling

 

Our counselors are equipped to assist in a variety of relationship stages. You may be embarking on a new relationship and seeking professional guidance, or perhaps you are facing seemingly insurmountable relationship issues and seeking help to overcome them. Our goal in counseling is to facilitate emotional and spiritual wholeness.

Our counselors can help identify the issues you and your significant other both face. We provide a safe place for processing a variety of relationship challenges, including the following.

 

Redeemer counselors recommend completing the Prepare-Enrich Assessment after completing the Intake Form.


What is the Prepare-Enrich Assessment?

The Prepare-Enrich Assessment is an online survey that you take with your significant other to help you identify the unique strengths and potential growth areas of your relationship. The Prepare-Enrich Assessment assists in facilitating the process, making sure the sessions cover all important areas of your relationship. It is a sophisticated instrument that must be interpreted by a trained counselor. The online assessment is optional, though recommended. To purchase, the cost is $70 per couple.

Financial counseling

 

Discover what the Bible has to say about finances.

Learn how to create a budget and actually stick to it.

Create a realistic plan for getting out of debt.

 

Financial counseling at Redeemer Counseling Services (RCS) is a gospel-centered approach that will both equip you with biblical financial principles and address practical financial topics such as budgeting and steps to help you move out of debt and into financial freedom.  This is what we offer:

  • Money and finance workshops.
  • Individual financial counseling.
  • Training for churches.

 

Individualized Sessions:  $50 per hour-long session 

For personalized attention, the practical application workshops can be substituted with individualized sessions or be taken in addition to the workshop. During those sessions, we will create a personalized budget for you or your family. We'll come up with short-term goals (i.e. paying off debt, getting some money into savings) as well as long-term goals (i.e. saving for retirement, putting aside money for your children's education). We offer advice on how to talk to and handle creditors, and most importantly, provide the accountability you’ll need to stick with the plan. If you would like to set up an appointment, contact Taylor at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

 

Training

Would your church benefit from having a lay financial counseling ministry? We offer training sessions for both pastors and lay leaders in the fundamentals of building a financial counseling ministry.
