Rating: 5 stars  

The center is one of the most valuable service organizations I have ever been involved in. By providing counseling for children, teens, and adults in dire need of help, the staff makes a difference in lives broken by many mental problems. And best of all, fees are on a sliding scale according to families' ability to pay.

Successful organizations have one thing in common: high quality personnel. The Christian Counseling Center of Cumberland County has four highly skilled, educated, experienced and very caring counselors. What's awesome about this organization is the service provided by these counselors is very affordable with a goal to serve all in need regardless of ability to pay.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Further increase community awareness of the Christian Counseling Center across the Cumberland Plateau.

This organization provides counseling services to anybody who needs it, even if you don't have alot of money. I know many people who have gotten great help in the Sparta and Crossville area by great counselors at this place. If anybody needs help, they should call them, and they will help you.

At the Christian Counseling Center everyone will find a top notch group of dedicated counselors specific to their age group and need. Each counselor has consistently demonstrated over the years a combined professional and personal appeal to helping anyone willing to resolve the troubling personal situations they face.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

seek funding that would allow counseling to be available full time on a daily basis.

Even though we love each other VERY much, we were having trouble communicating and expressing our feelings and needs to each other. With Carol Donalson's help through recommended books, exercises, instructions and insights, we were able to be the couple we wanted to be. We will both be forever grateful to Carol and Christian Counseling Center for being there for us. She was always professional, impartial, and was able to help us listen and feed back to each other what we heard and what we wanted. We are so much more in love today than a year ago and looking forward to the rest of our lives with each other. Two Senior Citizens

Excellent organization, well represented by counselor Carol Donalson. Carol has helped me with more than one issue in my life. I was offered so much insight, well-timed advice, and understanding through her counseling that I couldn't be happier with services provided. I highly recommend this organization as well as Carol herself if you need help with direction in your life.

The Christian Counseling Center honestly made a big impact on my life. I was struggling with depression and lack of direction after moving to Cumberland County and I really needed someone outside of my family to talk to. After my first session at the CCC I felt extremely positive, I knew they could help. Ms. Donalson was extremely inviting and understanding. Everything was conducted in a professional manner, but with a great deal of care and compassion. I looked forward to my sessions and I have seen the results from them. I feel that I have overcome a period of sadness and despair and I know I couldn't have done it without the help of Ms. Donalson and for that I am ever grateful.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Simply put, my life. I have already accomplished goals I didn't believe I could accomplish and have already set new goals for my future. I have a renewed faith in myself and my abilities thanks to the Christian Counseling Center

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The care and compassion I received from day one. It really gave me a sense of comfort and ease. The first impressions I received were crucial to me because of the state of mind I was in.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Extremely caring and professional. I always felt a calming effect when I entered my sessions and Ms. Donalson always took great care to assure me that our meetings were private and confidential. She made me feel very comfortable.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Expand its services all across the greater Cumberland area and reach a great deal of residents who may be looking for help and guidance without knowing where to turn to.

My husband and I sought counseling at the Center for a problem in our marriage. As much as we love our pastor, we wanted counseling from a professional and impartial person. Our faith is important to us both and, even though we were having problems communicating, we could agree that counseling with a Christian orientation was a good option. We were helped very much by the counselor at the Christian Counseling Center and would recommend this Center to anyone who needs help.

The Christian Counseling Center of Cumberland County provides a vital service to persons who are struggling with life in a multitude of situations. Because of the diversity of the County Population, Director Carol Donelson and her staff find themselves, variously, ministering to wealthy retirees and some of the poorest people in Appalachia. Ms. Donelson has great expertise in many areas of counseling, and finds herself increasingly dealing with people with suicidal tendencies. She and her staff also counsel persons who are struggling because a spouse or other family member is sinking into the valley of Alzheimers. As a Stephen Ministry Leader, through her local church and other area churches Ms. Donelson helps prepare lay people for pastoral caregiving roles. The Counseling Center operates on a sliding fee scale. Because of this approach the Center is limited in its staff size, and consequently its ability to reach more people with its services. Currently the counseling staff consists of Ms. Donelson and one other counselor.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

observing Ms. Donelson in a teaching setting and also in positive feedback from parishioners who have benefitted from the Center's services.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the compassion and competence of the staff.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

committed, self-giving, and compassionate

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

establish branch counseling centers in smaller communities through Cumberland and surrounding counties.
