What We Offer:
Our services include Outpatient Counseling for individuals, marriage, pre-marital, and families. Most, but not all people that call and come in are looking for counseling that includes what may be most important to them–their relationship with God and their Christian walk with God, and their relationship with others and themselves. Day, evening and weekend appointments are available. In these appointments, we will give you an opportunity to open your heart to us and to God. We want you to have the freedom and gain trust to be vulnerable and to know that we will stand with you in your vulnerable place. We want this time of need for you to be a place of turnaround. Where you have been grieving, we want you to find release and move through the sadness and depression. Many people have an offense they need to work through and get freedom from. This may be an offense towards themselves, towards others, or towards God. Regardless of who the offense is towards, we will help you on the path of freedom and the path of release. Forgiveness happens when you acknowledge the hurt and the anger and you get to the place releasing that offense and sending it away. We will help you with those steps to freedom.
Weekly or bi-weekly individual counseling visits can provide the spiritual insight and the emotional support that allows for significant personal growth, behavior change, and individual accountability. Samaritan’s Well offers individual and family outpatient counseling to all age groups to help clients with depression, anxiety, anger, addictions, as well as marriage and family issues. Our licensed and qualified counselors have experience and training in practically every area of counseling needs. We will do our best to pair you with the best counselor for your needs.
The most effective way to get positive results in the least amount of time is usually, but not always, intensive counseling. This can be very effective when a crisis or trauma has just occurred when there has been some uncovering of a clear issue that needs to be resolved, or, often, when there is an initial need to establish a foundation of clearly what the problem is, its roots, and attempt significant movement towards resolution. We have many testimonies of these intensives being the breakthrough that people had prayed for years for, or they had sought for years. The intensive therapy may be as little as two hours a week, or as much as 8-20 hours over a 2,3, or 4 day period. During these intensives, we will get an even more thorough history than we have in the past. Being thorough about your history helps us “connect the dots” regarding the foundational issues that are connected to your current challenges.
Proverbs 26:2 says the following: “As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come.” This is a foundational verse for Samaritans Well. And it could be a bit confusing, but let’s look at that for a second. Occurs is simply anything that blocks or hinders a blessing. In John 10:10 we read: “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly.”
So we learn, that the normal life for a child of God is life, abundant life, blessed life. If something is hindering or blocking the blessings that God has for you, we define that as a curse. When you understand it this way, you begin to see why at Samaritans Well we search for anything that is occurring in your life that is “suppressing the blessing” so that hindrance can be removed and your blessing and blessed life can be restored and released. Another Bible verse that reminds us of that blessing: Ephesians 1:3–“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ”
Throughout the year, Samaritan’s Well offers workshops to shepherd healing. The workshops are designed so that in one, six-hour time period you can get a hands-on teaching about freedom and healing that can help you on your freedom journey in a way that is informative, revelatory, and encouraging. One of these workshops is “SOUL SENSE.”
This workshop explores helping you to understand your five foundational emotions—that through the continuum of those emotions, and the combination of those emotions, form all the emotions in your soul. This workshop also explores the three parts of your soul: your mind, your will, and your emotions. We will help you connect your soul, your spirit, and how that interacts with your physical body. In this workshop, we will help you to understand what it’s like to have freedom of emotion but not be dominated by your emotions. In essence, your emotions are a reaction to a perception that you have at the moment, and that perception has many roots.
Other workshops include “HEALING PETER”, “HONOR FOR LIFE”, and a marriage workshop for couples.
The Healing Peter workshop helps with the understanding of the way Jesus healed Peter in John 21 so that you can get FREEDOM in the same way.
The Honor for Life workshop is About the five pillars of honoring your mother and father that leads to blessing in life and emotional and spiritual freedom.
The Marriage Workshop helps couples to understand the foundations of blessing each other in marriage and the paths of freedom when there’s anything that is hindering fellowship and intimacy in marriage.
Two types of teaching podcasts are available—short, 2-5 minute format where a brief overview of an essential subject is broached. The second format is an interview format, where we will have pastors, licensed counselors, and therapists to understand different perspectives of Christian living and freedom. We want you to find freedom, and if we can help you with that at Samaritans Well that would bless us also!
