Resiliency + Hope
Conversations about Mental Wellness
Second Thursdays of the month at 7:30 p.m.
Join us each month for a series of timely conversations on mental wellness. You can tune in to this page to just watch and learn or to watch, learn, and anonymously ask questions for our therapists to answer live.
Each conversation will be moderated by a member of our Congregational Care team and led by therapists at the BUMC Counseling Center. This center is a unique collaboration between Brentwood United Methodist Church and psychotherapists in private practice. The therapists at the BUMC Counseling Center are not employees of the church. They were recruited to relocate their practices to the Counseling Center in order to support BUMC's commitment to making mental health resources available for children, youth, adults, couples, and families in Williamson County and the surrounding communities. The BUMC Counseling Center therapists are Dr. John Fite, Ph.D., Stacy Jagger, LMFT, and Dr. James Wellborn, Ph.D.
