Professional Counseling from a Biblical Perspective: 

Policies and Procedures

Chrysalis Connections is grounded in a philosophy that seeks to help individuals, couples, families, and organizations find harmony with themselves, others, and God in the communities and larger systems where they live, play, worship, and work. To that end, we provide Biblically-based services to those who wish to explore and/or enhance their relational, emotional, behavioral, and spiritual well-being.

While we welcome and work with clients who embrace a variety of faith beliefs and backgrounds, as well as those who do not identify a specific form of spirituality or faith, we are open about our reliance on Biblical principles for guidance and direction. To learn more about our specific beliefs, please feel free to review our Statement of Faith.

PLEASE NOTE:  Christian Counseling is best utilized by individuals who self-identify as a Christian and/or follower of Jesus Christ and desire the integrated use of biblical principles that recognize and lift up the Word of God and Christ in all matters of life and relationships. Christian counseling, may not be appropriate for clients who identify with other belief systems or self-identify as either agnostic or atheistic.

While Chrysalis Connections, LLC attempts to provide Christ-centered professional services to clients who request counseling, services with a biblical perspective, such services are only provided at the client’s request.  Should clients seek or require assistance or support with religious, spiritual, or other forms of transcendent orientations that fall outside the scope of the Christian faith, such clients will be provided with appropriate referrals sensitive to the client’s request.

IN ADDITION: Chrysalis Connections, LLC is dedicated to serving all individuals, couples, and families of all racial, cultural, ethnic, and religious backgrounds and affiliations. The center is committed to providing culturally and spiritually sensitive counseling, services to all who request our services and endeavors to engage in mutually respectful and considerate discourses with all who are so inclined.

Our goal is to help clients find the counseling, services that are best fitted for their particular situation and need. Should our services fall outside the range of counseling or assistance most fitting to your unique needs, we will be happy to provide a list of alternative service providers in an attempt to help you find the most appropriate and effective level of care possible.
