Heart-Care will change your life. Taking care of the most important part of you, your innermost self, your heart, will increase your overall sense of spiritual well-being creating hope and increase your ability to give and receive love. Heart-Care is a Holy Spirit led counseling session that goes beyond talking about an issue to unlocking the pain of an issue to experience true healing, freedom, and spiritual growth.
Did you know everyone has issues?
Some feel that only the “truly broken people” need counseling for their issues. They can handle their issues on their own or their issues are not that big a deal compared to others’ issues and most of the time that can be true. After all, they have gotten this far in life alright, or haven’t they?
But many times we face crisis in our life that we can’t resolve alone. We face questions about our present or future that overwhelm our usual problem solving skills. We may feel that we have lost control of life and need someone to help us make better choices. We may need someone one to help us sort out the aspects of our actions to find better responses. We may need someone to help us repair emotional scars from past decisions or events. Sometimes we may not be able to understand the conflicting feelings and actions in our life and need help to make better choice. We may need someone to help us learn better ways of expressing and meeting our needs. At times we may feel that we need strengthening or guidance.
It doesn’t mean you are a failure. It just means you are a human in need of a Savior. Jesus said, “Blessed are the“broken-hearted” for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven” Matthew 5:3.
Heart-Care is a time to receive guidance from the Great Counselor, the Holy Spirit. To learn more, read Heart-Care – Making Hearts Whole.
So, can you take inventory of your life?
- How is your relationship with God? Do you feel like it is thriving and real or stagnant and routine?
- How is your relationship with others? Do you feel connected or alone in a crowd?
- How is your relationship with the person you look at in the mirror? Do you embrace the uniqueness of the flaws or critique with a negative dialogue what you see?
- Is anything hindering success in your life? Peace? Joy? love?
Could you grow spiritually from Heart-Care?
Even if you are in a good place and learned to be content with where you are, or if you feel there is something more to living a vibrant life, Heart-Care is a good investment for you.
You will be honored with one-on-one time with a compassionate counselor who will give you time to be heard and understood. You will get to experience the freedom that comes from an encounter with a living God whose love is reaching past your failures, past your protests, past your arguments to meet your needs. He doesn’t compare your pain or issue to anyone else to dismiss it. He is moved with compassion for you.
What is expected of me when I ask for Heart-Care?
You will be asked to share as much of your story as you feel comfortable with sharing. If at any time you feel unsafe or hesitant, you will be given the freedom of privacy.
You will be asked to watch a couple of videos before arriving to begin the education process of the vocabulary of Heart-Care and prepare the heart to encounter freedom.
What about confidentiality and anonymity?
What is shared during a Heart-Care session is confidential with the exceptions required by the Texas State Law of indications of child abuse or neglect, abuse or neglect of the elderly, and abuse or neglect of the disabled.
If there is a probability of immediate physical injury by you to yourself or others or there is a probability of immediate mental or emotional injury to you as a result of your own or the actions of others, your counselor must take reasonable action to inform medical or law enforcement personnel.
How long will it take to help me with my issues?
Many times our issues did not happen overnight. While an event may have tipped us over the proverbial cliff, chances are the circumstances that led to overload may have been brewing for a while.
Heart-Care is not one session and done. Think of it like peeling an onion. It takes the human heart time to come to terms with pain from the past or face the blocks in the present or fears of the future.
However, you will be equipped with education to understand inner conflicts and recognize irrational beliefs. In emergency, I will be only a text or phone call away.
The first session will last about 3 – 5 hours. Follow-ups are usually less time. The cost per session is $100.
