Why would I go to a Christian counseling center?
At LBCC, there is someone who will listen, whatever your situation. As trained counselors, we have experience in other settings. However, we have joined LBCC because we take seriously our obligation as Christians to carry one another’s burdens.
We feel a deep compassion for people who are struggling and we want to respond to them in love without being judgmental. We are led to use our talents and gifts to help others who are in need to become their best. We challenge people to set clear standards for themselves, to guide their lives and their families in an era of value confusion. We believe in healing and growing, no matter how broken and distressed your circumstances appear.
Whatever your religious affiliation, race, or nationality, LBCC wants you to feel welcome.
How can I feel more comfortable about going to counseling? What about confidentiality with the church?
Just as those in the early church shared each other’s concerns, we want you to understand that there is refuge here. We promote strict confidentiality in our practice, in our records, and in our counseling. Appointments are made through a private phone service that does not connect with the main church office. The center secretary does not work within the church office and will not contact any outside agencies without your complete permission and awareness. We want each church member to feel acceptance and love within our church family, so that they may turn their stumbling blocks into stepping stones and they may then, in turn, help others.
How do I make an appointment? What should I bring with me?
LBCC is presently open by appointment only. All sessions are 50 minutes each with the first appointment to be 80 minutes at no extra charge. Please call 803.808.5222 to contact one of our counselors or leave a message for us to return your call. If you must cancel an appointment, we need 24 hours advance notice.
LBCC intake paperwork is available in the information box located on the porch of our facility. You may also click the following link for an online copy of the LBCC intake paperwork. You may fill this out and email it to the address shown on the first page. Please bring your insurance card with you to your first appointment.
