Chatroom Guidelines & Boundaries
If you are already signed up with Pastor Mike, ‘click’ the green button, and supply your Username to enter the chatroom. Suggestion: Please use whatever name you choose consistently, to help facilitate building relationships in trust. Your profile need only state enough about yourself as you feel safe sharing in this group venue for counseling in community. (e.g. – Survivor could stand for Abuse Survivor of any kind. Family / Survivor – Friend / Survivor – SNAP Participant – Clergy – Counselor …are just a few examples.)
Please remember that you are in control of your experience herein. If the discussion is too difficult, please feel free to leave and join us again another time. If you require assistance from a staff member signed in, but not participating in the dialogue, double click on the name in the left side column for a private word on a separate screen. If issues arise where you need help after the close of the session (2:PM PST (AZ) on Thursdays), simply contact Pastor Mike through the Counseling page by email to set up an appointment. If help is needed immediately afterwards, please call 925-487-2261 to our office, or 911 if it is a life threatening emergency.
In the window below for the chatroom, enter your message in the bottom line of the page and ‘click’ return when you are ready to send your message to the group. Be patient waiting for a response as several discussions may be happening at once. Whenever possible, allow the person speaking sufficient time to finish a thought. Using abusive or foul language may be cause to remove you from the public chat room and into a private setting with Pastor Chalberg.
