Please note that Emmaus has increased its staff to make ourselves available to those needing counseling. Do to COVID-19 and the increased volume of client counseling it may take 24 to 48 hours to receive confirmation of your contact. We know that times are tough and many have lost jobs and need assistance. We do not turn people away because they do not have the funds or resources for counseling.  We have many options for clients to find ways to support their counseling needs. Yet, because we have to pay for utilities, office supplies, use of space it requires a substantial amount of financial resources to provide counseling and healing services.  We accept donations and other funds from supporters who believe our counseling mission is crucial to help individuals and families hurting in our community.

This brief conversation will help us determine two things. First, it will help us know whether we can meet your needs or whether we need to refer you to another Counseling professional or agency that has the specialized expertise that we do not possess. Second, it provides your intake specialist with an initial glimpse of the level of service you will require from our Center. For example, you may either qualify for peer counseling services or group services. In some instances, the complexity of your struggle will mean that you need to see our Director for personal counseling. Either way, we will do our best to either provide or arrange for the care that you need.

2.  After obtaining the intake information, your intake specialist will consult with the Administrator or the Executive Director and will assign the proper counselor to your case. At that time, your counselor will call or email you to set an appointment time.

 3. At the appointed time, you will come to the Emmaus Center and we will begin walking with you on your path of sanctification.  The generic meaning of sanctification is “the state of proper functioning.” To sanctify someone or something is to set that person or thing apart for the use intended by its designer, God. 

6. Hopefully, this road map of the counseling process will provide you a general direction of our method of counseling and conflict resolution.
