John is available to do a limited number of consultations and counseling with parents. John’s counseling approach is based not on psychological theory, principles, or methods, but on biblical principles exclusively. In this regard, it is important to understand that although John holds an active license to practice psychology issued by the North Carolina Psychology Board, he is not a Christian psychologist; in fact, he denies that the term has validity. Rather, John is a biblical counselor.
“The Bible contains a clear and simple plan for the raising of God’s children. Imperfect human beings cannot do anything in a manner that even begins to approach perfection, but when it comes to the raising of God’s children, imperfect human beings will do a much better job using instructions provided by our perfect Creator God than they will do using instructions provided by other imperfect human beings.” – JR
I practice with the following restrictions/guidelines:
John will not, under any circumstances, conduct a first appointment by phone, Facetime, or Skype. First appointments must be face-to-face, meaning that the parent or parents must either bring John to them or go to John. First appointments generally last three hours, and up to five. The goal is to get as much done as possible in the shortest possible time frame. From that point on, John is generally willing to do follow-up by phone or (less often) email.
John will not see parents who are seeing another therapist or counselor because of parenting or marital issues, nor will he see parents when the child in question is either currently in therapy or counseling with another professional or on medication for a behavioral issue.
I do not accept insurance, Medicaid, or payment from any other third-party payee, and I will not fill out forms from or communicate with any of those sources. Clients can pay directly by check, cash, or credit card (Visa/MC only).
Appointments cancelled less than 24 hours prior to the scheduled time will be billed at the full rate.
If another professional has referred to me, I will work closely with that professional.
If you are interested in having John contact you concerning a potential appointment, please fill out the form below with only a brief summary of the problem. John will respond within 72 hours.
