When problems arise, most people turn to family, friends or pastors. Often their advice is enough to help you deal with your struggles. However, there are times in life when you may need professional help. Counseling can be an effective means of gaining a new perspective, enabling you to confront life’s challenges from a Biblical perspective.

Richmont’s network of Hope Counseling Centers offers counseling services from a Christian perspective to individuals, families and groups. Staffed by Richmont faculty who are licensed mental health professionals, master’s-level clinicians, and student interns working under supervision, these centers provide more than 50,000 hours of low-cost counseling in the Atlanta and Chattanooga communities every year. They also host workshops, seminars and growth groups.

In addition, our Hope Counseling Centers serve as a laboratory for the development and implementation of spiritual intervention strategies designed to promote psychological health and spiritual transformation within the standards of professional mental health practice. They also provide our students a context in which to develop and practice the skills taught in Richmont’s academic curriculum.
