Do you have professional counselors available?
Our consultants have varying educational backgrounds; some have formal counseling education, and all have gone through a rigorous training process with Blue Ridge Women’s Center, but they are not licensed counselors and can provide only what is considered peer counseling. If you would like to see a licensed counselor, we would be glad to provide a referral for you.
Do you facilitate adoptions?
We can provide information about adoption, referrals to licensed adoption agencies, and a neutral place for a woman considering making an adoption plan to meet with an adoption social worker. However, we don’t act as an adoption agency matching adoptive parents with children, nor do we profit in any way from making adoption referrals.If you want to find out more about making an adoption plan for your child, you can make an appointment to talk to an adoption social worker in a no-pressure environment here at the Center.
If you want to find out more about adopting a child, we recommend that you contact a licensed adoption agency such as Commonwealth Catholic Charities, Bethany Christian Services, or Family Life Services.
