- Do I have to be religious to receive counseling at the PCC?
Absolutely not. Although our counselors and therapists are trained to offer spiritually sensitive care, when requested, every counselor is trained and committed to respect the unique person you are and the values you bring into the counseling process.
- How much will I have to pay for services?
That depends. In order to continue to serve those who may need an adjusted fee, we ask each client to pay as much as he or she can afford to pay.
- If I would like to, can I talk about spiritual matters with my counselor?
Yes, if you request that spirituality be a part of your counseling experience, our counselors are trained to provide spiritually sensitive care. Each counselor has a background in theology and/or ministry.
- What if I've had negative experiences with religious persons who have tried to "convert" me?
No one at the PCC will ever try to force her or his beliefs on you. We are committed to not discriminate in any
of our activities or services on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, religion (creed) or
lack thereof, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, nationality or place
of origin, language, physical or mental ability, family or marital status, socioeconomic
status, military or veteran status, or political affiliation. This is essential to your safety and trust in counseling.
- Will my employer know that I'm getting counseling, if I use my health insurance?
No, psychological services are confidential. The only ones who know about your counseling services are you, your counselor, and anyone to whom you give written permission for your counselor to talk.
