“Help, hope, and healing” has been the slogan of Samaritan Counseling Centers of Greater Birmingham since its inception more than thirty years ago. In a spirit of compassion and concern as illustrated by the parable of the good Samaritan, Samaritan Counseling offers faith-based professional counseling, coaching and educational services in multiple locations in the greater Birmingham area including Homewood, Pelham, Alabaster and Highway 280 in Hoover.
Nationally accredited by the Solihten Institute, Samaritan Counseling maintains the highest standards of professionalism in the delivery of mental health services, offering counseling services for a wide variety of mental health issues including: anxiety, depression, loss and grief, anger, suicidal thinking, trauma and addiction. Recognizing the importance of the integration of mind, body and spirit, emphasis is placed on the value of healthy families and communities, including healthy churches.
As a nonprofit organization, Samaritan Counseling actively supports the racially and ethnically diverse communities within greater Birmingham. Counseling and educational programs are provided to marginalized and underserved persons through collaborative agreements with the Firehouse Shelter, the YWCA, One Place and other community support agencies. For clients with financial hardship, Samaritan can provide counseling at reduced rates.
In addition, professional coaching is available for assistance with leadership development, lifestyle issues and career decisions. Special support and training programs can be provided on request for clergy and congregational leaders dealing with issues within their churches. Coaching is also available for addicts who are struggling and need supplementary assistance with their recovery program.
For anyone needing help and looking for a safe, sensitive and respectful place to deal with personal issues, Samaritan Counseling Centers stands ready to help.
