We emerged from a growing need in our area for faith-based counseling services from professionally trained counselors.
We firmly believe in integration of scriptural principles with daily living, and that God can use the study of mind and human behavior to heal past wounds and present conflicts. Therefore, we work with pastors and Christian organizations to minister to the Body of Christ.
We are a para-church organization that differs from a private practice in that we are nonprofit, charitable, and tax-exempt ministry.
We are committed to reaching as many persons as possible by offering affordable services from quality Christian professionals. While we do have an established fee, we also provide a sliding scale fee which takes into consideration family income and number of dependents. Some churches help their members pay for counseling too.
We are the only state-licensed and recognized mental health agency that identifies as a non-profit Christian ministry within a 50-mile radius. Our staff consists of male & female mental health counselors, social workers, art therapists, and marriage & family therapists.
All are licensed to practice in New York State.
Our Counseling Services
We provide services in the following treatment areas:
- Individual Therapy
- Group Therapy
- Marriage Counseling & Family Therapy
- Pre-marital Counseling
- Child & Teen Counseling
- Psychological Testing
Our services are always growing as we become aware of the many needs in the Body of Christ and the burden these needs place upon the local churches. One of the ways we meet the needs of the community is opening branches at convenient locations throughout Western New York. We have offices in Clarence and Orchard Park, NY.
As needs arise and staffing allows, we are able to partner with churches and other para-church organizations to provide on-site services to their members and local community.
CCM was founded 1983 by Dr. Timothy P. Chambers, our Executive Director; and is governed by a Board of Directors made up of Christian professionals in the Western New York area
