Counseling

at Essential rock church

You don't have to face

struggle and heartache alone.

At Essential Rock Community Church we offer both individual and couples counseling services with a spiritual emphasis.

Our counselors include pastors and lay counselors who receive in-depth training in the counseling area, but are not professional counselors with degrees. We understand that when seeking counseling, the first step of admitting to yourself that you are struggling - and making the phone call to get help - can be difficult. However, you can be assured that any information you share and even the fact that you called to inquire about the counseling services here at Essential Rock Church will be held in strict confidentiality.

taking the first steps

Step 1: Fill out the ONLINE FORM and let us know that you would like to speak to someone about receiving counseling. Your confidential message will be responded to as soon as possible. Please be honest in filling out the form, this helps us assign you to the trained lay counselor best suited to help you. 


Step 2: After the initial request, you will be contacted by the pastor or lay counselor assigned to you to set up an appointment. You will then be asked to fill out an intake form, including some background information about you and your situation. This form is read only by the leader of the lay counseling department and your assigned lay counselor is kept at the church in a confidential file.

Please note that there may be a delay in the assignment of a counselor based on availability. We may suggest an appropriate Class or Growth Group in the interim, or refer you to a local counselor, agency, or intervention program.
