Woodland Hills ChurchCare MinistriesCHRISTIANCOUNSELINGREFERRALSA Reference for finding and selecting professional Christian counseling servicesin the community.
WOODLAND HILLS CHURCH REFERRAL LISTThe following is a list of professional Christian counselors in the community who have been approved by the WHC Care Ministries after completingour screening process. Individuals who are seeking a counselor are encouraged to contact two or three possible counselors and follow theguidelines below to find the best match.GUIDELINES FOR CHOOSING A COUNSELORCheck with your insurance provider to find out if they cover counseling/mental health services and then get the detailsof your coverage. Make sure to ask whether they allow you to go to “out-of-network” providers. The listing on the following pages indicates whichcounselors take insurance and which ones do not.Choose 2-3 possible providers from the list to speak to, asking them to give you the following information:- Their education/training background and licensure status. There are four types of mental health licensure in Minnesota: Licensed Psychologist(LP), Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW), and Licensed Professional ClinicalCounselor (LPCC). Minnesota does allow people to practice counseling without a license. However, insurance will only cover if the therapist islicensed. Licensure and education do not guarantee effectiveness or quality of services, but may be good indicators of experience level.- What their areas of specialization are, and have them tell you if they have experience or training in dealing with your specific issue or concern.- Their relationship with Christ, and how they integrate their faith in their counseling practice.- Ask about their fees, whether they take insurance and if so, which plans, and whether they have a sliding-fee scale. Ask them about their paymentpolicy, for example, whether they bill monthly or require payment at each session, etc.- Discuss with them the length and frequency of counseling sessions, as well as the expected duration of treatment, how they handle cancellationsor emergency appointments, etc.After interviewing possible counselors, think and pray over the decision and make the best choice you can based on the information you gatheredand your “gut feeling” about who is the best fit for your needs. Remember, you are “hiring” the counselor, and if after the first session or two youare not comfortable with the counselor, it is a good idea to try another option. Keep in mind, though, that counseling is a very difficult and stressfulprocess, and that a certain amount of discomfort and anxiety are a normal part of counseling. Try to discern whether the problem is related to thecounselor, or to the issues being covered.WHEN AND HOW TO END COUNSELINGEnding counseling is ultimately the decision of the client. Some issues may need a longer term of therapy while others can be dealt with effectivelyin a few sessions. Discuss your progress regularly with your counselor and agree together on when to end. It is important that you neither end prematurely, before gaining the full benefit of counseling, nor continue on needlessly, becoming dependent on your counselor.If you need additional guidance or have any questions about professional counseling, call Rob Kistler, Care Pastor, at 651-287-3001.
