Q: How much does Family Coaching charge?

Q: Does Family Coaching take insurance?
A: Since we offer our services at no charge, insurance isn’t necessary.
Q: What’s the difference between coaching and counseling?
A: The major difference is that coaching identifies the problem and finds the solution in a very short time. We work to connect people to God, to connect people to others, and to connect them to their own heart. Counseling on the other hand works on pathology, giving diagnosis, providing therapy and is long term.
Q: How long does it take?
A: Of course every family and individual is different, but coaching usually takes 5 to 6 weeks.
Q: Who will be helping me? How is my coaching assigned?
A: When you call Family Coaching you and your family will be assigned a Coach. All Coaches have been trained and have also been coached as individuals.
Q: I only want Pat to coach me, is that possible?
A: All Coaches, including Pat, are assigned to families and individuals based on availability and family need.
Q: Will my process be confidential?
A: Yes. Confidentiality is important at Family Coaching because it helps the individual and family heal more quickly.
Q: It says family, but can I come by myself?
A: You can come as an individual, as a couple or as a family. If your heart is troubled; come.
Q: Is it a class?
A: The sessions are not classes but rather one-on-one coaching sessions.
Q: Is there anything Family Coaching doesn’t do?
A: Actually yes. We do not handle court mandated counseling. We do not work on pathology or prescribe drugs of any kind.
Q: I am of a different faith than Christianity, can I still come for help?
A: Of course! There are universal truths that help heal hearts and we share a lot of these at Family Coaching.
Q: I would like to give back to Family Coaching, how can I donate?
A: As a non-profit, we graciously encourage donations. You can make a donation at our main office in Lubbock or via this website.
