Frequently Asked Questions

What is Biblical Counseling?

The true goal of biblical counseling is maturing in Jesus Christ as His true disciple. Christ doesn’t teach us to cultivate a plan or develop a functional version of ourselves. But, He does provide Biblical solutions to everyday problems.

You aren't Licensed Professional Counselors (LPCs)?

We choose to be biblical counselors and not LPCs due to our belief in the life-changing power of Jesus Christ and desire the freedom to discuss Him and His principals.

What payment methods does the CV Biblical take?

Members/regular attendees/employees of sponsoring churches or businesses will be charged $30/session.

People not associated with a sponsoring church will be charged $80/session.

We take cash, check, card, Venmo, HSA, or you may choose to pay directly through the payment form on this website.

*A person’s ability to pay will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

*Financial support is available.

What would the counselor expect of me?

Your counselor will expect at least three things from you:

  1. Be willing to grow and change.
  2. Be willing to attend counseling sessions regularly unless you encounter an unavoidable emergency.
  3. Be willing to complete homework assignments between counseling sessions to implement and ensure lasting change.
When will I be counseled?

You will receive a call from your counselor within twenty-four hours of submitting your intake form to set up your first appointment.  Each counselor makes their own schedule, taking into account your schedule as well. 

Our front office is open 9 am – 4 pm Monday – Thursday and 9 am – 1 pm on Fridays. 

How long will my counseling last?

The counseling sessions normally last fifty minutes and continue over a period of five to ten sessions. The exact number of sessions is determined by one’s progress. The duration of premarital preparation is usually four to eight sessions.

How can my church or business partner with the CVBCC?
The CVBCC desires to minister to the community by partnering with our churches and businesses in San Angelo. The benefit of our partnerships would be a shared donation to our counselors. Based on $60 per session suggested donation, each member or employee of a partner would be responsible for half, or $30 per session.

A monthly donation of $75 to $500 would be based on the average size of your church or business. Please contact the CVBCC if you would like to know more about becoming a partner with us.
What is your philosophy of counseling?

We call our philosophy of counseling our Agreement of Conviction and this is what it says:

• The full Word of God is the standard for counseling at this Center for the purpose of Biblical maturity.
Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ.” -Colossians 1:28

• We, as Board Members, Executive Team, and Counselors, are committed to being ministers of the Gospel, behaving accordingly and in line with the Word of God both privately and publicly.
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no
need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.” -2 Timothy 2:15

• Our counselors choose to be Biblical Counselors rather than Licensed Professional Counselors (LPCs) because the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God.
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, reproof,
correction, and training in righteousness, that the Man of God may be complete,
equipped for every good work.” -2 Timothy 3:16-17
