What do I need to know?

Here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions and other important information to help you wherever you are at.

Assessments

We are trained and licensed to administer several different assessments which can help determine possible areas of need. These assessments help us refer you to vetted Christian psychologists and psychiatrists more qualified than ourselves. This can be a very helpful first step when people know they need help, but don’t know what kind or where to go.

Cost

We are a non-profit organization and do not require payment for services. We operate on the donations of our guests and ministry supporters. Services will not be denied for financial reasons. We recommend a donation of $50 for each visit which can last 50 – 90 minutes. If $50 is beyond your current means, we hope you will prayerfully consider what you can give and will perhaps donate to the ministry in the future when you are in a position to “pay it forward.” We are unable to accept insurance of any kind.
