“It is the mission of our Pastoral Care Ministries to be the hands and feet of Jesus to a hurting world around us. There are many people in need of love and support through difficult times. What better way for them to receive care than through a Christian Counseling Center? I am so excited for God to bring forth healing in people’s lives, and what a difference a Christ-centered approach to therapy will make! Supporting people using a Christ-centered focus will help create forth a deeper intimacy with God. Weddington Christian Counseling Center is a lighthouse of His light!”
– Rev. Ed Briggs, Minister of Pastoral Care

Therapy can be an effective treatment for mental and emotional challenges. Therapists are professionally-trained listeners who can help you get to the root of your problems, overcome emotional challenges, and make positive changes in your life.
You don’t have to have a mental health diagnosis to benefit from therapy. Many people in therapy seek guidance for everyday concerns: relationship and job stress, school pressure, or self-doubt. Others turn to therapy during difficult situations, such as a divorce or loss of a loved one.
Please contact Tony Gibson at 704.814.4220 for session pricing. Insurance accepted includes most Blue Cross Blue Shield and Anthem plans. Accepted forms of payment: American Express, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, Cash or Check. Receipts may be supplied for out-of-network insurance reimbursement. Payment is due at time of session.
We hope to offer a safe, non-judgmental therapeutic space where you can begin to discover your resilience, utilize your strengths, create self-awareness, and learn healthy coping and communication skills. We will make every effort to bring our professional skills to each session and enable you to find solutions for your specific concerns. Because of our Christian perspective, we offer therapy that stems from our belief in acceptance, compassion, and respect for each person. You will not feel pressured or obligated to believe a certain way, but it is important that you understand this worldview informs our approach. Our therapists are credentialed to practice in North Carolina. We look forward to working alongside you and equipping you for transformational growth
The confidentiality of your records is highly valued. The law protects the privacy of communications between a client and therapist, although some situations are excluded by law. In most situations, we may only release information about your treatment to others if you have signed a written authorization form that meets certain legal requirements imposed by HIPAA and/or other federal or state laws. Limits to preserving confidentiality include the following:
- If there is reason to suspect that a child under 18 years of age is being, or has been, abused, abandoned or neglected by a parent, legal custodian, caregiver, or any other person responsible for the child’s welfare, North Carolina law mandates any adult (not only professionals) file a verbal and written report with the Department of Social Services. Once a report is filed, a therapist may be required to provide additional information. This also applies to the elderly, or persons with physical/intellectual/developmental challenges.
- If it is believed that there is a clear and immediate probability of physical harm to the client, other individuals, or to society, therapists may be required to disclose information to take protective action, including communicating the information to the potential victim(s), and/or appropriate family member(s), and/or the police and emergency services.
- A judge, by position, holds privilege to subpoena a client’s behavioral health records at any time.
- Billing and non-clinical information will be shared for session fee processing (including client names, addresses, financial institutions on credit card, check, and cash receipts) with the Business Office of Weddington Methodist Church, which holds ministry and administrative jurisdiction over the Weddington Christian Counseling Center.
If any of the above situations arise, we will make a reasonable effort to fully discuss the matter with you before taking any action and will limit disclosure to what is absolutely necessary.
The therapist at WCCC is not on call. We do not have specific access or privileges at any hospitals. We will do our best to respond to emergencies but we do NOT provide 24-hour coverage. If you or a family member have an emergency, please call 911. There are services available that provide rapid response and follow up access to psychiatric help.
