Elijah House Guam
Frequently Asked Questions
How long and how many times a week is a typical session?

Off-island clients are seen 3 hours a day for 4 days (Monday through Thursday).

Sessions for local clients are usually 2 hours. Most clients are seen once or twice a week in the beginning, then, as time goes on, less frequently. The number of sessions depends on what your current needs are.  The length of time depends on the nature of the problem and your goals. Some clients have a very specific problem that can be worked through in several sessions. For others, counseling is an on-going learning process and they choose to receive counseling for a longer period.

Do you accept insurance?

Elijah House provides Christian ministry based upon Scriptural principles, not the kind of counseling one might expect from a licensed clinical psychologist or psychiatrist.  We are not aware of any insurance carrier which will cover payment for our services. Prayer Ministers do not diagnose mental illness and will refer when necessary to ensure the safety of and protect the mental health of the counselee. If you want to pursue insurance help further, please contact your insurance carrier for information about their specific coverage.

What if I want couples counseling, but my partner won't come?

Unfortunately, sometimes one partner is not as willing as the other to come in for counseling. However, we often find that it is possible to improve the relationship with just one person involved in counseling.

What is prayer ministry? 

Prayer Ministry includes discussion and healing prayer into the foundational areas of one’s life:
• generational and family of origin issues
• core beliefs
• emotional wounding/addictive patterns
• release from oppression.
Prayer Ministry employs focused questions and "listening prayer".
• to unveil negative core beliefs
• resulting “structures” and life patterns,
• replacing ungodly core beliefs with empowering truths revealed by God.
Prayer Ministry is similar to what has been called “Pastoral Care” or “Prayer Counseling.” Our approach is largely from noted Christian counselors and authors, John & Paula Sandford.  It is wonderful to see lives transformed by the living Christ!
