"We believe that God is using counseling to effect change and restoration in the lives of individuals and families. Anxiety, abuse, addiction, depression, grief, marital problems, parenting challenges, stress, trauma and general problems in living impact everyone of us at some point in life. However many people do not have access to counseling for many reasons. Inability to pay, lack of awareness, fear, and shame are just a few of the barriers that keep people from accessing mental health. The Smith Family Wellness Center will remove at least two of those barriers by providing affordable counseling and psycho-education for some of Charlotte’s most at risk communities."
