What is HeartLife Professional Soul Care?
- HeartLife Professional Soul Care is a not-for-profit organization comprised of Christian professionals committed to provide counseling on a spiritual, emotional and relational model with excellence. HeartLife also supports and trains pastors and laity for group or one-on-one discipleship.
What makes HeartLife different from other counseling services in the area?
- At HeartLife, we aren’t just counselors who happen to be Christians. Our Christianity permeates our clinical work. Our relationship with Christ and belief in the Bible enables us to provide truth, love, and grace, providing patients/clients with a true healing experience. We take a biblical approach to our counseling methods, conceptualizing issues from a biblical anthropology, and maintain the highest clinical standards.
What kinds of counseling do you offer?
- We offer a full range of counseling, or soul care, services: marital, premarital, family, child and adolescent, depression, anxiety, grief, relationship, eating disorders, addiction, substance abuse, and sex addiction.
Do you accept insurance?
- We do not accept insurance, but we will be happy to assist you with getting the necessary documentation to file a claim yourself. When a practice or practitioner signs a Managed Care Contract, the managed care organization (MCO) can dictate the “type of treatment and the number of approved sessions.” As Christians, we do not feel we can ethically provide treatment from the philosophy that many MCOs demand.
