Answers to Common Questions?

Are your professional counselors licensed by the state?

Yes! Our professional counselors are either licensed in Kansas or Missouri.  They are also board-certified mental health life coaches. If you live outside of the state of Kansas or Missouri,  check this website to see if your state is a part of the new  Counseling Compact. This legislation enables therapists to counsel anyone from a state within this new Counseling Compact agreement. This new legislation will not be enacted until mid-2024. Here is the link for more information.
If your state is not a part of the counseling compact, you may request mental health coaching services from our counselors. All of our professional counselors are also equipped to provide biblical counseling.

What is a Mental Health Life Coach?

Mental Health Life Coaches assist clients with various issues that have kept them from reaching their goals, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, socially and physically. Like licensed counselors,  mental health life coaches have different specializations and training which equips them to provide services that benefit clients. Your coach will  provide strategies to help you reach your desired outcome.

What is a Biblical Counselor?

A Biblical Counselor has either a bachelors degree, masters degree or doctoral degree from an accredited university, bible college and seminary. They are trained in mental health disorders and therapeutic processes which will help clients with emotional healing but do not diagnose. Biblical counselors use God's word to bring healing to wounded souls and spirits.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I request a new coach/counselor?

Yes! It is very important to us that you are comfortable with your coach/counselor. You may choose another coach/counselor at any time. However, if you have paid for your session, you will not be refunded for your scheduled appointment, but you may use those funds to schedule with another coach.

Can my coach/counselor testify in court?

No, your coach/counselor will not go to court for you. We recommend you contact another professional counselor in your state to provide a mental health evaluation and assessment which most courts require.

What if I have a serious mental health disorder?

You will be able to work with a Life Coach, however, we do not recommend you see a life coach instead of a professional counselor. We recommend that you remain in treatment and continue to receive treatment from your professional counselor.

Do you work with couples and families?

Yes, we have coaches and counselors who specialize in working with couples, children and families.

What if I schedule and can’t make my appointment. Will I lose my money?

We understand that sometimes unforeseen circumstances can cause a conflict with your scheduled appointment. If you need to reschedule, you have 30 days to use your funds. After 30 days, you will lose your funds. Our team will send out emails reminding you to reschedule before this occurs.

May I gift my session to someone else? Even after scheduling?

Yes! Whoever takes your session must complete the intake forms and confidentiality forms before they are seen.
