Virtual Christian Counseling Consent & Intake Form

Our goal: Our goal in providing Christian counseling is to help you meet the challenges of life in a way that will help people overcome difficulties through Christian teachings and values.


Biblical basis: We believe that Bible/faith-based guidance provides thorough instruction for faith and life. Therefore, our counseling is based on scriptural principles rather than those of secular  psychiatry. Neither the pastoral counselors of Covington-McGee Christian Counseling are trained or licensed as psychiatrists  nor should they be expected to follow the methods of such specialists.


Not professional advice: When serving as counselors within Covington-McGee Christian Counseling, however, they do not provide the same kind of professional advice and services that they do in their professional capacities.


Therefore, if you have significant legal, financial, medical, or other technical questions, you should seek advice from an independent professional. Our pastoral counselors will be happy to cooperate with such advisors and help you to consider their counsel in the light of relevant 

scriptural principles.


Confidentiality: Confidentiality is an important aspect of the counseling process, and we will carefully guard the information you entrust to us. However, it may be necessary for us to share certain information with other counselors to address a particular problem and needs to seek advice from  within Covington-McGee Christian Counseling.


Please be assured that our counselors strongly prefer not to disclose personal information to others, and they will make every effort to help you find ways to resolve a problem as privately as possible.


Resolution of conflicts: On rare occasions, a conflict may develop between a counselor and a client/or patient.


In order to make sure that any such conflicts will be resolved in a biblically faithful manner, we require all of our client/or patient to agree that any dispute that arises with a counselor or within Covington-McGee Christian Counseling as a result of counseling will be settled by mediation and, if necessary, legally binding arbitration in accordance with the Rules of Procedure of the Covington-McGee Christian Counseling. Judgment upon an arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.


Agreement: By signing this consent, you agree that you will not attempt to subpoena or require any counselor to appear in any legal proceeding related to any matters discussed during counseling, nor will you attempt to subpoena any notes or records related to this counseling.


Having clarified the principles and policies of our counseling ministry, we welcome the opportunity to be a part of your healing journey and look forward to your success in reaching spiritual peace and happiness.


If you have any questions about these guidelines, please  reach  out to Covington-McGee Christian Counseling with any concerns. If these guidelines are acceptable to you, please sign below.
