Pathways Pastoral Counseling began its ministry in 2004 out of a corporate vision of helping and providing a clinically competent and theologically informed resource to aid those struggling individually, in relationships, families, workplace stressors, and those experiencing chronic illness. Originally created by and under the leadership of the Rev. Dr. Trey Kuhne and members of Westminster Presbyterian Church in Spartanburg, SC, the mission of Pathways Pastoral Counseling is to promote, equip, and restore healthy relationships in individuals, couples, and families. This mission is expressed as a non-profit fee-for-service pastoral marriage and family therapy ministry of helping persons with those particular challenges and difficulties that life can present.
In 2006, Pathways Pastoral Counseling moved its office from Westminster Presbyterian Church to St. Christopher's Episcopal Church. Pathways was created to be a service and a resource to the Upstate community regardless of any religious affiliation. Its continuance is established by fees collected for counseling services and by generous donations of individuals and families who support the mission.
Pathways Pastoral Counseling has established two special funds to address ongoing needs. One is the Tim Taylor Memorial Scholarship Fund, which helps persons unable to afford the full counseling fees on a one-to-one basis. The second one is the Recovery Fund, created to provide free counseling services to struggling addicts in recovery treatment through the Medication Assisted Treatment practice Mel-Med (Dr. Melissa Fritsche, MD) on Wednesdays.
