Our counseling office is located on the second floor of Belle Meade United Methodist Church*. Belle Meade UMC's Vision is to share the love of God and neighbor through Spiritual Growth, Missional Living, and Community Partnership. We are grateful that we can be part of the "Community Partnership" part of that vision.

Belle Meade UMC currently maintains a designated fund to assist clients of the counseling center who cannot afford the regular fee for counseling. Tax-deductible contributions can be made to Belle Meade UMC and designated for the Counseling Center Fund on the churches website. All dontations made to the counseling fund will be used to supplement fees for those who cannot afford the full cost of counseling.
