In the spirit of compassion and concern as seen in the parable of the good Samaritan, Samaritan Counseling Centers of Greater Birmingham offers faith-based, professional counseling, coaching, and educational services in multiple locations in Birmingham and the surrounding area.

We value the integration of mind, body, and spirit and the importance of family and personal relationships, including healthy communities.

As professional counselors and coaches, we maintain the highest standards of ethics and professionalism in the delivery of our services, and we offer counseling and coaching for a wide variety of problems and issues.  See the partial list in the column to the right.  Multiple links lead to informational articles of interest.  If issues beyond our expertise are identified, our counselors will assist our clients in finding appropriate medical or other specialists, as indicated.

In addition, as a non-profit organization, we are committed to supporting the diverse communities of greater Birmingham and to extending our services to marginalized and under-served persons.  As an example, we provide counseling and education services for the homeless in partnership with the Firehouse Shelter and other Birmingham support agencies.  With the demonstration of need, we are also often able to discount our fees for clients who are suffering financial hardship.
