What to Expect


Professional Christian Counseling pursues wellness of the whole person from a uniquely spiritual perspective. I will pray with you and for you; your privacy and confidentiality will be protected; and your religious convictions will be respected.


At the First Session, I will administer the Arno Profile System Temperament Questionnaire. This takes about 10 minutes and is required for all counselees The cost of the assessment is included in the first session fee listed above. I may also take a health history, because physical health has a great impact on emotional health. We are tri-part beings created in God's image, and thus we are spiritual beings with an intellect and emotions, living within a physical body. Counseling must take this interdependence into consideration. The balance of the session time will be devoted to listening to you describe the challenges that brought you to counseling.

  

Here at Mercy Christian Counseling I provide Christian Counseling to persons of any denomination or who may have no church affiliation at all. My primary counseling goals are: 1) to help the individual focus on their worth as a creation of God; 2) to teach them about their inborn temperament; 3) to help them develop healthy ways of communicating with and relating to others; 4) to help individuals overcome wrong thinking and behavior patterns by renewing the mind; 5) to pursue lifestyle changes to improve overall health; and 6) to encourage a more intimate relationship with God through faith in Jesus Christ.

Offering services in the following areas:

Temperament Counseling.  (Provided for every person who comes for counseling.) This Biblically-based assessment (known as the Arno Profile System, or APS) identifies an individual's inborn, God-given temperament. Temperament determines why you respond to people, situations, and the environment the way you do. You will receive a personal copy of this report and have an opportunity to validate the results with your counselor. I have found this assessment to be nearly 100% accurate for dozens of counselees who self-certified the results. It helps us pinpoint behaviors, thoughts, and attitudes that may be contributing to the challenges that bring you to counseling, which in turn gives a direction for the counseling efforts. This assessment is also an excellent resource for parents. The APS can be administered to anyone age 7 and older.
