The Counseling Center at the First United Methodist Church of St. Petersburg is an outreach ministry that provides confidential counseling to individuals, couples and families by state licensed counselors. The administrative staff members are skilled in helping new clients match their concerns with the clinical expertise of the available counselors as well as local resources. Insurance, private pay and a limited amount of scholarship funds are provided to remove financial barriers to receiving the mental health care needed. Personal faith is one of the greatest resources an individual has during challenging times.  The full Counseling Center team assists clients in nurturing their ability to apply their growing faith whenever possible. This begins with the first contact with the administrative assistants and extends into the private counseling sessions.
