Don't have someone to confide in at church?
Maybe you don’t have a church, or, perhaps the problem you’re facing involves someone in your spiritual community. Maybe your church is fantastic but you’re unsure who to inquire about the problem you’re facing – there can be many important reasons why it’s sometimes wise to seek support from a professional counselor.
Pastoral counseling services are best provided in an atmosphere of trust. All the information that you share will be treated with great care. You will be asked to sign a “release of information” form before information is shared.
Dr. Bednar is educated and licensed as both a clinical pastoral counselor and a chemical dependency counselor. Dr. Bednar provides counseling services under the umbrella of Dr. Bednar Counseling, LLC.
However, it is important for you to know that she is currently called to serve under her Doctor of Ministry education as a pastoral counselor. And as such, the Ohio Counselor, Social Worker, Marriage and Family Therapists Board does not recognize this calling.
As a pastoral counselor, Dr. Bednar will not be developing a treatment plan, making a diagnosis, nor discussing medication referrals.
Dr. Bednar is not practicing as a clinical counselor and will refer you should those services better serve your needs.
