How long are the sessions?
Intensive counseling sessions are typically 5 to 7 hours. The number of sessions range depending upon the desired goal(s) to be reached. Please refer to the Service Page for details based on your needs. The noted number of sessions and length of each session is based on what is best to insure maximum success!
Are the sessions on consecutive days?
Based on our personal experience, this type of couples counseling is best done with the least amount of life distractions. When the sessions are on consecutive days people are able to find freedom from pain, break deep strongholds and gather tools for continual transformation in themselves and their relationships. Families and youth session are typically not done in a consecutive fashion. They are best done on a weekly basis over a longer period or time.

Do I need to be a Christian to see you?
No. Many of the tools and skills we use apply to all people. We do recognize that the Lord Jesus Christ has given us His Holy Spirit who intercedes for us when we are speaking with clients. Having the LORD Jesus as the intercessor allows for the client to be able to identify past hurts that have tethered him or her to the pain in the past. With Christ, those bonds can be broken. We receive people where they are without judgment or condemnation, only with the love of Christ.
Is there overnight lodging available?
There is no lodging on the property. There is a very peaceful Bed & Breakfast just minutes away, as well as various hotels in Salina about 25 minutes away. We encourage our Salina clients to stay at the Bed & Breakfast in order to have a complete withdraw from the world while they are here. Kanopolis Lake is a very nice lake that has some rental cabins and the ability to sit and watch the sunset together.
