At Eden Counseling and Consultation, therapy is a collaborative process where you and your therapist form a working relationship that is designed to facilitate change and growth during times of transition, emotional or psychological distress. Following an initial evaluation, which may include psychological testing, an overall plan for treatment will be designed and discussed with you. The length of your treatment will depend on your own personal goals and the types of problems to be addressed.
Psychological tests are scientific instruments that have been constructed to help us understand more about an individual’s personality, skills, and ways of coping. Qualified examiners at Eden Counseling and Consultation utilize a variety of widely used and researched instruments to identify emotional, behavioral, or developmental disorders such as depression, memory or attention problems, or learning disabilities. A comprehensive and reliable psychological evaluation identifies strengths and weaknesses, learning style, and current levels of intellectual and personality functioning.

Are you struggling with.....Burnout? Compassion Fatigue?
Moral Failure? Loss of Vision? Disappointment? We Can Help.
Our Rest and Restoration Program includes accommodations at a relaxing, private home in beautiful, rural Virginia.
Our Rest and Restoration assessment provides personal, marital, ministry and organizational assessments with a plan for restoration and growth that includes the necessary interventions and support to insure success.
We combine research validated tools and methods from clinical psychology, executive coaching, team building, spiritual assessment, spiritual direction, and ministry assessment and consultation.
The issues involved include burnout, compassion fatigue, moral failure, criminal activity, loss of vision and drive, disappointment, and the perception that God’s will and call for the individual or church exceeds what is currently being accomplished.
The consultation begins with the initial phone or email contact. Sufficient information is acquired to conceptualize the assessment. A 3-day Intensive Assessment/Consultation is scheduled and staffed with the team that is deemed most appropriate for the situation.
We have served individuals, couples, and entire ministry teams and their spouses with Intensive Assessment and Consultation services and follow-up consultation.
The Rest and Restoration assessment is designed to assess what is happening in the leader’s life, develop a plan for restoration and take the first steps down a path of healing and wholeness. The initial assessment/consultation is a 15-hour process conducted in 3 days at our offices in Virginia Beach, VA.
