Recovering Hope - Restoring Lives

aka Branches Counseling Center   |   Murfreesboro, TN   |  www.branchescounselingcenter.com

Mission

The MISSION of Branches is to be a Christ-led community that is seeking to serve individuals and families of all economic levels on their journey toward hope and restoration. Our goal is to see them find their full potential in Christ as they develop in mind, body, and spirit. Our VISION for accomplishing this mission is threefold:Offer state-licensed and pastoral counselors, as well as medical providers to meet the diverse needs of clients.Provide financial assistance to those who could not otherwise afford our services.Position multiple offices in strategic locations so that our services are easily accessible to those who need them most.

Notes from the nonprofit

With the onset of the COVID pandemic and its related mental health issues, Branches quickly converted to tele-health to meet the needs of those with additional anxiety and depression. For a few weeks, all sessions were conducted via tele-health. After opening the office, we continue to conduct tele-health for those who prefer it. In addition, we are beginning to focus more acutely on aiding trauma victims. Our clinical director has been trained by the founder and developer of the Marilyn Murray "Trauma Egg" method. We are using this mode along with EMDR to effectively treat individuals who have experienced trauma of any kind.

Scholarship Counseling

Our state licensed and pastoral counselors offer counseling for those dealing with a variety of emotional, mental and spiritual issues. The base client fee is $95 per session. For those who don't have insurance or can't pay $95, we offer a sliding fee scale based on income.  If a client is still unable to afford services, we operate out of a scholarship program where we will sponsor the client's services at little to no cost to them.  80% of our clients are unable to pay the full amount.  We average 1800 clients hours each month. Our counselors take reduced payment and Branches supplements the client. This deficit translates into $460,000 annually given in scholarships. We begin with a 10-session scholarship and re-evaluate the client's progress and continued financial need to consider another group of  10 sessions.

In October, 2017, Branches added a program that offers nutritional counseling and weight management counseling.  Nutrition and weight management play a key role in balanced mental health.  An experienced Physician's Assistant or Nurse Practitioner will meet with clients to provide the treatment.   Patients can receive mental health counseling concurrent with their weight loss program.  Exercise programs, support groups, and balanced, nutritional prepared meals will be available to patients.   The weight loss program will also offer limited financial scholarships to qualified patients who request assistance.
