As a member of the American Association of Christian Therapists, I PROMISE to conduct myself at all times in an ethical manner becoming to my title. I shall not be self-serving
or monopolizing, or take undue advantage of any person I choose to counsel.

I PROMISE to counsel only within the boundaries of my training and experience. I will not intentionally
jeopardize the well-being of any counselee by using “innovative” approaches or various psychotherapies on him/her

a counselee to another counselor if I feel unqualified to help him/her.
