Our vision for counseling is larger than a few one-on-one meetings with a counselor. Rarely does lasting change happen in isolation. As a part of counseling, we will likely encourage you to be involved in the life of our church in a variety of ways as we walk together. Our approach to counseling focuses upon helping you identify how your beliefs, values, and desires (Prov. 4:23; Matt. 6:21; Luke 6:45) express themselves in your emotions, relationships, decision making, and identity.

Our commitment as a church is to offer counseling services to church members and those in the local community. As a church, we are committed to help others glorify God with their thoughts, words, and actions through the community of faith. This is made possible by the redemptive power of Jesus Christ, the conviction and guidance of the Holy Spirit, and the instruction of God’s Word. Your counseling will be biblical, pastoral counseling in which the Scriptures are held as the final authority in all matters. If you are not sure that you will be interested in biblical counseling, you will have the option of attending one or two sessions to discover how biblical counseling may help you.

bible-readingThe next step in the counseling process is to complete one of our intake forms (linked below). We have designed them to allow the counseling process to start smoothly and to allow us to connect you with the resources that fit your needs. The counseling forms are designed to (1) help us to get to know you in a comprehensive, holistic, and efficient manner and (2) help you organize your thoughts about your counseling objectives. Please allow 30 minutes to complete these forms.

Our request is that you complete these forms and submit them to the Paramount Church Biblical Counseling Ministry. A Pastor will review them carefully and our office will contact you with a recommended counselor from Paramount and potentially a list of other ministry services that would benefit you at this time. Please indicate when you are available for appointments. Please note, the narrower your availability the longer you may have to wait to receive counseling and there may be fewer counselors available to work with you. We do not offer weekend counseling.

Counseling sessions typically last an hour and fifteen minutes. Childcare is not provided. Please arrange to be on time to maximize your benefit from counseling. We are grateful to be able to serve you and look forward to walking with you through God’s agenda for your life.
