No. There really is no need for insurance because our session rate is already discounted and not much more than most insurance copays. (Counselors usually charge over $100 per session.) Also, we offer biblical counseling and do not participate directly with health insurance for our discipleship counseling service. Most insurance companies require a diagnosis from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, and we don't do that at Real Life Christian Counseling. We welcome those who want others to get the help they need, but are not able to afford counseling, to donate to Real Life Christian Counseling on a regular basis.
Pastoral counseling ministers to the whole person: spirit, soul, and body. Pastoral counseling uses ethical counseling techniques in combination with biblical principles and believes the Bible is the final standard of authority for the counselor. A belief that God is the one who ultimately brings about healing in our lives is the key to restoration.
