TCM Counseling is blessed to be located in a community that cares. A visible and tangible way to address the emotional needs of our neighbors is to ensure that everyone has accessible, affordable and confidential counseling. It is TCMʼs mission that anyone who lives, works, or worships in the Tri-Cities area of Grand Haven, Spring Lake, and Ferrysburg, Michigan, who has need for professional counseling, will never be turned away.
In 2015, TCM provided people in our community with over $900,000 in mental health services on a budget of $327,000. This was accomplished through the generosity of our community; The Greater Ottawa County United Way, local businesses, churches, individuals, and TCM fundraisers. TCM continues to grow in numbers of clients served, as well as the programs we provide.
A vital resource for students who cannot afford counseling nor obtain transportation to a therapist’s office, this program reaches students at their schools. TCM is in our fourth year of offering this service.
TCM is an EAP provider for many area businesses. Employees receive a certain number of free counseling sessions per year. Unlike other EAPs, often based out-of-town, which may take weeks to access, TCM can provide a same-day intake session for an employee in need.
TCM is committed to suicide prevention. TCMʼs executive director and program coordinator are trained in a suicide prevention technique called QRP (Question/Persuade/Refer), and are offering trainings throughout the Tri-Cities and Holland. Please call to schedule a training for your business or group.
TCMʼs unique business model enables us to maximize donations and help everyone who calls or walks through our door. No one is ever turned away.
As people in our community continue to be denied at other agencies, or lose their health care coverage or employment, they are coming to TCM for help. We are seeing record numbers of individuals and families, and it increases each month. Still, no one is ever turned away. Co-pays are determined on a generous sliding scale, based on income...this can be as low as $6 per session. For clients who cannot afford that, TCM accepts in-kind services (such as cleaning, yard work, minor repairs, and so on), that allow clients to maintain their dignity and self-sufficiency while receiving counseling from TCM.
