Many times, it is after participating in small group when we realize that we have opened a door to our past, trauma, and struggles that must be explored further in a professional counseling setting. We have seen a powerful connection between small group work and individual therapy that has allowed numerous people to embrace their story, healing on a level they never thought possible. 

The list below contains counseling resources within Middle Tennessee that the Restore staff confidently refer people to on a weekly basis.

We are thankful for these  counseling centers and professionals that care for our group participants as they take another big step towards transformation.
