Who cares for the shepherd? Even though Pastors are prone to depression and isolation, they often struggle to get the help they need. The nature of a pastor is to be the one who helps – so when he or she needs help, there’s often a feeling of isolation or insecurity. And pastors are not immune to the patterns of addiction – whether it be to pornography or perfectionism.
Covenant is a 3rd party – not your board, oversight committee, or even your own pastor. Covenant is a counseling service that understands the challenge of the ministry and seeks to help in a way in a way that is non-judgemental and confidential (within normal ethical and legal boundaries).
Being a pastor gives you the opportunity to see deeply into people’s lives. The pastor can be an amazing resource for spirituality.
But a pastor can’t be everything. Some pastors have a great gift for counseling, while others can use some help. Covenant Family Wellness seeks to be that help.
We can work alongside you to:
Mental Health Referrals
Your inner 3-year old wants to do it all yourself. Your outer [fill in the blank] year old knows that you can’t do it all.
Covenant is here to help you with your counseling needs. Do you need to refer a parishioner out who needs greater help – but wants continuity of spiritual care? Need help with a couple in marital strife?
Covenant provides solid mental health support, backed by evidential treatment methods – but informs this with spiritual care (see the About Us Page for more – or call for a consultation and grill away – we can take it!)
Note: all sessions maintain confidentiality and security for the client.
Don’t forget to check out our blog posts geared just for pastors.
At Covenant, we don’t believe in a problem-free life. Things will never be “perfect” – perfectly good or perfectly bad. Instead we learn to embrace the good times when they come and to find something to hold onto when the bad times come.

Frequently Asked Questions about Teletherapy
What happens if either internet connection goes down?
That happens – and power lines go down at an office – but we will set a backup. We can reconnect by cell phones – either audio or video or we’ll reschedule if needed.
Do you take my insurance?
At this time, we are out-of-network for insurance. Between high-deductible plans, closed insurance panels, the lack of teletherapy support, and mostly some major concerns over personal privacy, we found it more beneficial to let clients control their own billing. We will provide a “Superbill” (a specialized receipt you can submit to your insurance) via email to be reimbursed for out-of-network expenses.
What if there’s a emergency?
We’re based in Columbus, so we know most of the emergency services in this area. If you’re out of the region, we’ll make sure that get the names of emergency services and an emergency contact for you. If you are at the point of needing help, we’ll make sure that we can get it for you.
What Equipment / Speed do I need?
We use a professional microphone set up with headphones for privacy and have a pretty decent sized internet connection. You only need a camera, a microphone, and a connection 10mbs or better (most internet providers are at least this). If you wonder if your setup is enough, sign up for the free
