  1. ” ACCOUNTABILITY” of self, others and your team. Sure not what the world says. Two involves integrity, honesty and to do the right thing in every situation. Really being responsible to God and to self. I also see this as being very wise in the day and age we live in.

    “I alone can do it, but I can’t do it alone.

    Really comes down to a relationship, which God designed from the beginning.

    Question? Is it gender specific, male to male, female to female?

    Thanks,

    1. Lanny,

      To answer your question- It depends on the situation. As a rule, we would recommend two male counselors as a team counseling a male counselee and likewise, two females with a female counselee. But there are times when a male and female team would be helpful, such as a married couple counseling with a man, woman, or couple who is having marital difficulties. The counselee(s) could perhaps benefit from both perspectives. We would always avoid having a woman counsel a man unless she is counseling alongside her husband.
