Community Downtown is an initiative of the Community Church of Columbus, providing help for marriage, family, budget, recovery, and individual issues. We have an off-site facility that houses counseling and various support groups for the community and are proud to provide counseling that is both Biblically sound and clinically effective. We also have, on a limited basis, counselors fluent in Spanish, and Mandarin Chinese.

Request for Counseling

(if any, but not required)

What type of counseling best describes your needs?

Although we wish we could help everyone that is need, our staff size limits the number of appointments available.

By clicking "send request" below, your information will be sent to our counseling office staff. After submitting, you will be redirected to this page again. Please do not submit multiple forms.  

  1. We'll first ask you several questions in order to learn more about your needs. Any person over the age of 18 must submit this information themselves — minors will need a parent or guardian. This information can be filled out in person, over the phone, or via email.

  2. Our director will review and attempt to pair new clients with a counselor in our office. We’ll assist with referring you to another office should our counselors be unable to take on any new clients at a given time.

  3. The person requesting counseling will receive a call from our staff to let them know whether they’ve been paired with a counselor or if they should expect a referral elsewhere. Their assigned counselor will make contact in order to set up the first session.

Counseling services are provided at no cost, yet donations are appreciated. Once you have decided to use our counseling services, we review and assess each client and pair them accordingly with one of our contract, lay, or professional counselors.


We offer many types of support groups, programs, and courses that can be used in conjunction with individual counseling or independently. Support groups are available at various times throughout the week, including: Celebrate Recovery, Embrace Grace, Family Grace, Insight, Griefshare, and more. 

See List of Support Groups »

Our team at Community Downtown is made up of professional, highly trained individuals who desire to serve God by helping others toward living a healthy lifestyle. Counselors are intentionally paired with clients based on need, availability, and specialty.
