The Trinity Boston Counseling Center (TBCC), a program of Trinity Boston Foundation, was founded in 2002 and serves the mental health needs of individuals, families, and groups in the Boston community through direct services and referrals. Our goal is to provide a safe refuge and inclusive space for clients in order to find healing, purpose, and peace in the midst of life’s complexity.
It is our priority to honor each individual’s spirituality and faith background, if any. Our clients include youth, families, youth workers, and other adults. TBCC's client services are offered on a sliding scale, so that those who would otherwise not be able to afford care may be served.
Individual Counseling: For those seeking to transform their lives, TBCC offers a safe place and trained therapists who are ready to accompany clients on their journey to healing. We listen for stress, trauma, and exposure to violence so that we may help.
Training & Workshops: Often, providers of social and ministerial services are themselves underserved – especially those focused on issues of high-risk youth, poverty, social and economic injustice, and violence. TBCC offers training and support to these providers around issues encountered in their professional experience, as well as the personal toll that such work often takes.
Embedded Clinicians: TBCC has partnered with a number of youth-serving organizations to provide an on-site clinical presence for youth and youth workers. We have found that individuals are more likely to access mental health services through a trusted source. TBCC offers a range of services, including individual counseling for youth and/or youth workers, staff trainings, and crisis management. Partners include: Boston Center for Youth & Families: Street Workers Program; City Year; Department of Youth Services; Fenway High School; and the PACT Initiative (Boston Public Health Commission).
Support Groups: TBCC offers support groups that are open to the Boston community. Groups are led by TBCC clinicians and meet weekly at Trinity Church for at least six sessions. Recent topics have included: mindfulness-based stress reduction, divorce, and loss/bereavement.
Internship Program: TBCC demonstrates its commitment to clinical education through its internship program. The program includes field work, clinical supervision, and the varied experiences of working in an active counseling center. Additionally, interns are encouraged to explore their own areas of interest. Historically, we have accepted interns from Boston College, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, Simmons College, and Lesley University.
