What to Expect

When you call In Him Christian Wellness’s main number, you will reach our Executive Director, Jon Burchard.  For new clients, he will assign you to an intake counselor.

  • That counselor will call you to set up your first appointment. He or she will also email you the necessary intake forms, which you will complete and bring with you to your first session.
  • Those forms include:
    • General information about you including contact info, family info and history of problem.
    • Directions to our office
    • Confidentiality information and consent forms
    • Financial agreement
    • Our policies and procedures
    • Instructions for paying via PayPal
    • Credit Card Authorization
    • Authorization to Release Information*
      *Talk to your clinician about these forms. You may or may not receive these ahead of time.
  • Each appointment lasts approximately 50 minutes. This allows time for necessary paperwork and charting to be completed for that session.
  • Following your first appointment, you will be given the opportunity to schedule with that therapist OR share your preferences to schedule with another therapist (we do our best to schedule clients with therapists based on needs and preferences of the client and experience or focus of clinician, to provide best fit).
  • Things to know
    • Each therapist keeps their own schedule, and we are not all in our respective offices at the same times or on the same days of week, therefore, we do not always see each other daily.
    • Regarding communication with your therapist or clinician: If a client has a question or concern about his or her care, he or she should contact his or her clinician directly to address it.  Each therapist has his or her own phone number and email address. You are also welcome to contact our Executive Director with any questions or concerns.
    • If utilizing more than one service or seeing more than one clinician, we will communicate regarding situations that require integration of services. But again, if you have questions or concerns about specific issues, please communicate directly with that clinician.
    • For payments:
      • All payments are due at time of service.
      • If you choose to pay online, using our PayPal account, our preference is that you pay directly prior to or following your appointment.  Please let your clinician know when the payment has been made.
