First things first:
We understand that life has its ups and downs and that sometimes it can feel overwhelming. So, we acknowledge the effort that it may have taken just to get to this stage. And we would like to say "You are welcome here." We have all experienced similar places in our own journeys and know what it's like to be in that place. We applaud your courage and your desire to seek help.
Course of Counseling Session:
Plumbline Ministries is a pastoral counseling and teaching ministry. In counseling, you and a counseling-theologian will explore biblical strategies for handling problems of daily living. It is not therapy or counseling in the traditional sense which would be based on a medical model, but is rather considered normal christian discipleship. You will begin with an intake form, informed consent and evaluation by the Taylor-Johnson Temperament Analysis. Counseling will be collaborative and approached by the Theologian Model as described on the website under the philosophy of Plumbline Ministry-Dynamics of the Counseling-Theologian Model.
Plumbline offers services for Pastoral Care Counseling, Pre-Marital Counseling, Theophostic Prayer, and Splankna Therapy.
Two Roads: Plumbline now offers two ways to come in for counseling. Please choose the one that best fits your situation.
1) Plumbline has partnered with several local churches to assist them in caring for their parishioners. If you are member of one of our sponsoring churches, you will want to contact them directly for the "Intake Form" and have it signed by a referring pastor. In this partnership, the sponsoring church is covering the cost of the sessions.
2) If you are not a member of a sponsoring church, then you may click on the link below and download an "Intake Form". You can then bring the form in to our offices to begin the process. Plumbline charges $65.00 per hour per session. The counselor will expect payment at the time services are rendered. You may pay by personal check, cash, or credit/debit card. (A 2.75% charge will be added to all credit/debit card transactions.) Neither the counselor nor Plumbline Ministries, Inc. takes insurance or provides billing information for insurance. If you need to miss an appointment, please notify your counselor at least 24 hours in advance or you may be subject to pay the full cost of the missed session at your next appointment.
A typical session is a 50 minute hour. Together, you and a counselor will arrange weekly appointment times. The counselor does not diagnose as is typical of traditional counseling.
