History

BACKGROUND
Christian Counseling Ministries of Western New York, Inc. (CCM) emerged from a growing need in our area for Biblically-based counseling services from professionally trained counselors. We believe firmly in the integration of Scriptural principles with daily living, and believe that God can use the study of the mind and human behavior to heal wounds from our past and conflicts in the present. It is for this reason that we work with pastors and Christian organizations throughout Western New York, to minister to the Body of Christ.

STRUCTURE
We are different from a private practice in that we are a not-for-profit, faith-based, tax-exempt organization. We do have an established fee but are aware of the fact that some people may not be able to afford that fee, and therefore, we provide a sliding fee scale which takes into consideration gross annual income and family size. We are committed to reaching as many persons as possible by offering services at an affordable cost, while maintaining quality Christian professionals to perform these services. We have several counselors and locations in the WNY area to help make our services convenient to our clients.

FOUNDER
CCM has been in operation since 1983 and was founded by Dr. Timothy P. Chambers who continues to serve as the Executive Director. In addition to the responsibilities of administration, Dr. Chambers provides individual counseling, coaching and mediation services. He is also a licensed minister.
