Dr. Diane McCollum

“While we hold professional credentials and ecclesiastical endorsements, we are not state licensed counselors, instead we are licensed clergy and are subject to state clergy exemption laws as well as other exceptions to the requirement of state licensing for counseling (i.e. Georgia code 43-10A-7). We are not psychologists, psychotherapists, psychiatrists, or medical doctors. We are pastoral counselors who are highly trained, credentialed, certified and licensed by the top Christian counselors associations in the nation and equipped to provide religious counseling around issues relating to spiritual and mental health.”
