FAQ

Am I Ready for This?

If you are asking this question, you probably are because you have already taken the first step in seeking options to help you. But you can schedule a free consultation to see if coaching or pastoral counseling with me is a right fit for you. Coaching and pastoral counseling are NOT a replacement for licensed professional counseling nor am I licensed counselor.

Who Do You Work With?

I mainly work with women, but am also available to work with married couples and teen girls. As a coach, I am also available to work with leaders, teams, etc. However, I do not provide pastoral counseling to only men.

How Much Do Your Charge? 

My fees are on a sliding scale with an average of $55 per session. Fees are unique to the service being provided and some discounts are available to applicable clients. Recovery programs include payment plans so the cost is not due all up front. On a budget? I will do my best work with you so don’t hesitate to reach out to me. But remember, taking this step is an investment in yourself.

I provide discounts to clients in active ministry (i.e. church staff, missionaries, pastor wives, etc.) so be sure to tell me! Group recovery programs, when offered, are over 30% less than the cost of one-on-one programs. Payment plans are available for all recovery programs. DGM Community members receive 15% discount on all coaching and pastoral counseling services.

Where Do Sessions Take Place?

I primarily meet with clients by phone or over Zoom with a webcam (similar to Skype). Consultations are conducted by phone only (or WhatsApp for international clients). I can meet with clients in person at my office at Gateway of Hope in Olathe, KS. Sessions there can be scheduled with me directly.

Jumping into coaching or pastoral counseling can be a little scary and it is understandable to be hesitant. To give you some peace of mind, I offer a complimentary 30-minute consultation. This consultation will give you the chance to get to know me, discuss why you’re considering coaching or counseling, answer any questions, and see if we are a good fit. The consultation is conducted privately over the phone.
