Lutheran Counseling and Family Services (LCFS) offers Christian Counseling services to strengthen and improve relationships between clients and the people in their lives, as well as their relationship with God. The mission is to enable those served to grow in self-worth through the assurance of God’s saving grace in Jesus Christ. Our therapists are licensed social workers, counselors and clinical psychologists trained to provide Christian counseling for individuals, families and children. We deal with a range of problems that arise in relationships and/or substance abuse.
Each client meets with a therapist for one-hour sessions. The number of sessions depends upon the treatment plan set up between therapist and client and the progress made with each session. Some clients may come only a few times and others may come for more than a year. Counseling services are provided at the Church by appointment. Clients are also referred by physicians, pastors, families, school or referral networks associated with insurance companies. Many health insurance policies include outpatient mental health coverage. An anonymous call to your provider will help get answers to your questions. Those without insurance coverage for mental health care pay on a sliding scale based on income and the number of people in the family. Charitable donations from individuals, churches and organizations which support Christian Counseling help make up the difference. A minimum fee for each session is paid by the client. Special payment plans can be arranged to accommodate clients who have difficulty paying this fee. Lutheran Counseling and Family Services is certified by the State of Wisconsin to provide outpatient psychotherapy.
