Hi there! I’m Nova Cruz (aka Mommy Nova). I’ve been providing marriage counseling offline and online since 2012. I’m currently on the last leg of my MA Counseling Psychology program in Ateneo de Manila University.
If you want to set a counseling session, here is a 4-step guide you can follow:
STEP 1. SELECT SCHEDULE
Choose 2 schedules in case your first choice is reserved already.
Time Slots: (6pm-7pm), (7:30-8:30pm), (9-10pm)
Weekend: 1st and 3rd Saturdays
Time Slots: (6pm-7pm), (7.30-8.30pm), (9-10pm)
STEP 2. SELECT MODE OF COUNSELING
Facebook: Chat / Call
Viber: Chat / Call
Skype: Chat / Call
*For call, please ensure that there is no distracting noise and there is good signal on your end so we can have quality session.
STEP 3. SEND INFO BELOW
Copy paste and edit the information below and send it to my FB page.
A. Preferred Schedule: Ex: Mon 6pm & Wed 6pm
B. Counseling Mode: Ex. Facebook Call
C. Social Account ID: Ex. Facebook – @mommynova / Skype – The Family Woman
I will then reply within 24 hours with the confirmation of our schedule. Kindly message me again if you didn’t receive a confirmation message.
STEP 4. DONATE
You may send your donation via bank deposit through my BPI-Family Savings account (Nova Cruz – 5756473095) or via online using credit card or Paypal before or after each session.
For online credit card or Paypal, please use this button:
After I talk with you, can you speak with my partner?
Yes, but only if your partner is willing, which I will ask before we begin the session. However, a face-to-face couple counseling is highly recommended. If your spouse is up for it, grab that opportunity.
Can we meet in person? Can you be our couple counselor?
Unfortunately, I don’t have a physical office yet and I’m not currently affiliated with any counseling centers, so I cannot meet with you in person.
How will confidentiality be maintained?
Your shared information from our session will be kept confidential. Written messages on Facebook, Viber, and Skype will be deleted one week after our session. Alternatively, you may use the secret chat feature of the messenger platform of your choice.
I will not be sharing your information with anyone. But I do sometimes blog about a client’s issue, but names and other major and minor details are modified.
What will I be asked to do?
Before the session, you will be asked to provide the following general information:
Your Nickname / Age:
Your Spouse’s Nickname / Age:
Years of Dating / Years of Marriage:
Ages of Your Children:
After that, you may begin sharing your present struggles which led you to seek counseling.
