Pastoral counseling is for every season of life. It adds the spiritual dimension of care to counseling sessions that many counselors and therapists omit. Pastoral counseling utilizes a faith-based lens in its approach, application, and use. I offer pastoral counseling as an ordained minister, not as a licensed clinician, therapist, or behavioral sciences agent regulated by the State of Kansas.
Pastoral counseling is protected under the Kansas Confidential Clergy Communications Privilege Law. Communication with a duly ordained minister is private and confidential. Know that I will strictly guard your sessions as a confidential communication and protect your privacy.
