About The Christian Counseling Center
The First Presbyterian Church of Columbia, South Carolina brought their vision of a christian counseling center – a place that would serve both the church and the community – to life in the late 1980s. In April 1997, Dr. Tom Barbian began his work as the first Executive Director of The Christian Counseling Center.
Over the last twenty years The Christian Counseling Center has grown to include thirteen Licensed Professional Counselors, six Licensed Professional Counseling Associates, one Staff Psychiatrist, five administrative staff, and continual openings for graduate intern counselors.
Each year thousands of people are helped in Columbia and the surrounding area through the services of The Christian Counseling Center of First Presbyterian Church.
