First, if you go to a Christian Counseling Agency, its because you want to use biblical truths and methods to deal with your issue. If you didn't want that you wouldn't seek the Christian Agency. You wouldn't take your child to an oncologist for a broken arm would you? No, cause you are going to seek the person trained for the type of care you need. So do be seeking help spiritually and to go to a Christian agency that gives you worldly treatments is wrong. Just the same, as some people would be upset going to a non-Christian counseling firm and having biblical truths applies to their care plan. If a counselor is not able to hold firm to the truths of the Bible, they shouldn't call them self a Christian counselor. Not saying they may not have faith, but they are not a Christian, but they sure aren't applying the Word of God when they do that.

Would you want an internist or oncologist to treat you using faith neutral interventions that are scientifically proven or would you prefer a treatment plan solely based on Biblical truths? I'm not being sarcastic, but I think counselors, psychiatrists, psychologists, and all mental health professionals should not be judged on being trained in secular models. That doesn't mean that they do not have a strong faith system in place.(perhaps the same as yours!:-)

if u want a Christian who is trained: find Doug Tweed he was based out of Kingsport. he is also an attorney ! He was trained Methodist, but has evolved into a more interdenominational ministry.

We ended up meeting with a local pastor who is also a psychiatrist. Was amazed at the difference in the approach. Remember, just because someone claims to be a Christian counseling group, that doesn't mean they will follow Bibical truths.
On another note, I do have also heard good things about the children's services provided there.
Check with your church if you go to one to see if they can give you advice about who to go to. At the lifeway retreat, we were given a website with Christian groups that provide services, will see if I can find it and post it tomorrow.
Who was the local pastor and what were your results We have Depression and physical issues Thanks Lifeway!

wellsprings has nothing but bad energy in my opinion. Don't know about the children's counseling efficacy. Avoid Milner like the plague!

Thanks for all of the information. I have checked with my insurance and had them check as well, and got that all straightened out. I have been put on the waiting list to see Denise... Becca is also booked until after the Holidays. My only other option is Linda. I haven't heard much about her, other than that she works with children (and that's why I plan to go)... so I haven't decided if I want to go ahead with an appointment with her, or stick to my waiting list with Denise. They told me that I wasn't guaranteed a "spot" or "scheduled time" with Denise, that it would jsut be on a cancellation type basis until she got finished with other clients. Soooo.... I would also be very appreciative of any insight/information on experience with Linda Mabe.
Both my children have seen Linda and love her. My son I continue to see her. I have excellent experience at that office. Now my hudband did not he saw Jim and wasnt pleased. I took my children to see Denise because I was pleased with how well she help me as a young adult. She was booked and we seen Linda instead and I have been as equally impressed. She has really gave it her all to help my family. I would highly recomnend her for both adults and Children. Sorry havent had any experience with Becca.

We did NOT have good experience with Wellsprings. My child told things in confidence to counselor, who then told the offending parent after each session in private. I was left out of most of the decisions, and I'm the other parent. The experiences I did have while there were not good ones. We mainly prayed that the other parent would become a better person and stop the behavior. I've heard great things about Sharon F. with Cherokee for children. Good luck.
