How do I get started with counseling? 

What is Biblical Counseling?

  • Counsel based on the Word of God
  • Seeks to deal with root issues; not just symptoms
  • Teaches you how to apply Scripture to your problem
  • Helps you grow in your walk with God
  • Involves weekly homework/assignments

How much does a counseling session cost? 

  • PSBC offers Biblical counseling free of charge to both members of the church and the community.  

How do I know if biblical counseling is right for me?

  • Are you ready to address the real issues?
  • Are you willing to change?
  • Are you committed to finding and implementing truth?
  • Do you believe God’s Word is truth?

Is Biblical Counseling only for Christians?

  • While you do not have to already be a Christian to come to biblical counseling, our counseling is based on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Our primary focus for unbelievers would be to address their greatest problem…their need for a Savior.  Because of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, they can have peace with God.  It is only after this foundational decision is made that one can begin to grow in their relationship with Christ.

Do you offer counseling for men and women?

  • At this time, PSBC only has a female counselor available, so we are only able to offer counseling to women. But we have strong partnerships in place to provide counseling for men.

What problems do you address?

We counsel individuals in the areas of (but not limited to):

  • anger
  • depression
  • anxiety
  • fear
  • guilt
  • bitterness
  • stress
  • relational conflict
  • addiction
  • marriage 
  • decision making
  • basic discipleship

How long does counseling take? 

  • The first meeting usually takes 60-90 minutes
  • Typically, subsequent meetings last about an hour once a week
  • Biblical counseling meetings typically occur over an 6-10 week period

When are your session hours? 

Counseling sessions times are scheduled based on the availability of both the counselor and counselee.  Once a time is established, you will meet each week at that time.
