We Provide Excellent, Professional, Spiritually Integrated Counseling Services

Our Mission
Samaritan Counseling Services of the Gulf Coast, Inc. was founded in 1999 when the pastors and church leaders at Church of the Palms in Sarasota realized a clear and urgent need in our community for affordable, faith-sensitive mental health counseling. Today a team of 19 highly trained state-licensed Psychologists, Social Workers, Mental Health Counselors, Marriage & Family Therapists and Interns provide over 10,000 hours of affordable outpatient mental health services annually in 11 locations including 10 churches in Sarasota and Manatee Counties as well as an office in Lakewood Ranch. Samaritan Counseling is a non-denominational, interfaith mental health organization. All of our counselors are highly trained Doctorate or Masters level clinicians and have extensive experience in their field. They are extremely passionate about helping those less fortunate, and all have the ability to incorporate spirituality into the therapeutic process if the client so desires.

Fulfilling our vision of Instilling Hope and Transforming Lives for those in need in our local community is made possible only through the generous support of donors and friends of Samaritan Counseling, as many of our clients are either uninsured or under-insured and unable to pay the full cost of the counseling services they so desperately need to lead healthy productive lives. Samaritan Counseling helps all age groups, from children to seniors, and from all walks of life. We accept insurance from major providers and work on a sliding scale for clients unable to afford full fee services. Counseling is available for anxiety and depression, grief and bereavement, premarital counseling, family therapy, separation or divorce, children’s problems, blended family challenges, stress and anger management, chronic or terminal illness, religious and spiritual concerns, alcohol addiction and substance abuse. We are fully accredited through Solihten Institute, meeting all 37 standards benchmarked to national requirements, and are HIPPA compliant for both outpatient counseling in our area offices as well as video-based therapy through our tele-health service. Samaritan Counseling’s team of therapists provide easy and affordable access to mental health services working closely with our clients to reach their therapeutic goals.
