E91’s Counseling Center exists to provide affordable, biblical counseling for E91 and the greater community. Going to counseling does not mean something is wrong with you or that you don’t have enough faith. Counseling is used by a great variety of people dealing with diverse issues. All of our counselors are under licensed supervision, value integrating faith into counseling, and eagerly seek to bring Christ into the problems and concerns that arise.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why should people get involved?

People seek counseling for a variety of reasons, but most often counseling is sought out because a person is looking for a safe place to process life, work through struggles and not fight alone. E91’s Counseling Center works hard to promote a safe and encouraging environment where people can experience acceptance and find hope.

How does confidentiality work?

Confidentiality can seem complicated. If you are eighteen years old or older this means that no one can see your records without your prior permission. Anyone under the age of 18 does not receive confidentiality, but your counselor would encourage a level of privacy within the counseling relationship. Confidentiality does not protect an individual if they report wanting to hurt themselves or someone else, or report an elderly person or minor who is currently being abused.

How long does counseling take?

Every person who comes in for counseling stays for a different amount of time, but most clients will see a counselor between ten and twenty sessions.
