COMMITMENT
CARING
COOPERATION
We at Covenant Counseling Services are
committed to providing a supportive,
professional and solidly biblical approach
to counseling and psychotherapy by
experienced, licensed professionals.  Our
services are available to the evangelical
community in Tidewater and to all others
desiring such help.
We are firmly committed to the full
inspiration and authority of the Scriptures
and to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.  
Likewise, we seek to demonstrate the
love of Jesus through a caring and
understanding approach to the needs of
each client.  We at CCS also recognize
the vital role of the local church in the
continuing process of healing emotions
and relationships.
BIBLICAL PERSPECTIVE
Our goal is to combine biblical principles
with the knowledge and application of
professionally sound counseling
principles and methods.  Graduate
professional education, extensive
experience in psychological counseling,
Virginia licensure and a wide range of
counseling skills equip our therapists to
effectively serve the Christian community.
PROFESSIONAL QUALIFICATIONS
There are times in one's life when stress,
emotional pain or relationship problems
indicate the need for caring and
competent professional help.  It is for
such times that we at CCS are available to
assist in the process of healing, the
restoration of hope and progress in
personal growth.
We view counseling as a cooperative
process, actively involving both the client
and the counselor.  Counseling sessions
are normally scheduled on a weekly
basis.  The total number of sessions will
vary, depending on the client's needs.  
Full confidentiality is maintained in the
counseling relationship.

If you are already aware of problems
developing in your own life, your
marriage, or your family relationships --
or in the lives of family members or
friends -- we encourage you to seek
counseling before the situation reaches a
crisis.  Dealing with problems early can
prevent greater pain and effort at a later
date.
