CARE MINISTRY
OUR APPROACH
We have been trained to care for clients God's Way at the Center for Biblical Counseling. God's way produces a right attitude toward the disease and gives those diagnosed a sense of hope for survival.  

Imagine feeling afraid, rejected, alone, powerless, ashamed and hopeless.  Envision, then, if someone comes to you and says words that no one else has said, does things that no one else has done according to God's Plan which leaves you with courage, strength, dignity and hope for the future. 

I use CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy).  It was developed by Aaron Beck in the 1960s.  My counseling theory focuses on how people's thinking can change feelings and behaviors.  My goal is to reverse negative emotional behaviors by correcting their "stinking thinking".

Our goal is to assist YOU with coping skills and to reverse negative emotional behaviors:
           
              Anger                                           Fatique
            Anxiety                                        Fear 
            Decision Making                      Food/Diet
            Depression                                Grief
            Discouragement                      Guilt
            Dispair                                        LowSelf-Esteem

Stress and Worry are also caused by unexpected events and/or the unexpected effects of chemo and radiation.  Our clients are taught life skills to assist with the transitions needed to live with chronic disease as they embrace Health, Nutrition and a changed lifestyle to obtain and maintain Wellness.
WELCOME
Welcome to the site of PCO Counseling. My name is Charlaine Price the owner.  I am a licensed professional counselor and I have been  practicing for 26 years. I have a passion to care for others.  I like counseling, teaching, public speaking and volunteering to help the homeless and victims suffering from chronic illness.  I have been surviving cancer since July 2011. I share empathy not sympathy with my clients.  I cared for my mother when she could no longer work.  I care for my clients as I assist them through their trails of life.  

I taught business marketing, adult education classes and provided career awareness and group counseling for adolescents.  I worked with the STARS Triple S (Students Staying Straight) drug program before I retired as Educator- Administrator from the Hamilton County Department of Education after 33 years of service. I received many honors during my tenure there:  Teacher of the Year at Riverside High 1987,  Counselorof the Year at Tyner High 1997, Delta of the Year in 1990, and Vocational Supervisor for the State of TN in 2000.

I have served as President of the Lookout Counseling Association, Tennessee Counseling Association and Chattanooga Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.  

I served as Active Parenting Counselor, Marriage Counselor and a Life Skills Coach for Men arrested for Spousal Abuse.  I have been recruited as public speaker for many civic and educational organizations.  I am an active member of the American Association of Christian Counselors.  I recently completed the Cancer Care Leadership Training Program, "Our Journey of Hope" a biblically-based, non-denominational, training program developed by Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) to help churches support and minister to those who have received a cancer diagnosis.  This training prepared me to teach others how to minister to those impacted by cancer. 





  1. HEALTH
    Have you ever tried to define health? Disease is not the result of a single violation of the law of health, but of habitual violations of the laws of health which prepares the way for disease.
  2. NUTRITION
    Good nutrition may be just as important for our mental health and that a number of conditions, including depression, may be influenced by dietary factors.
  3. LIFESTYLE
    If you keep on living the way that you live now, you will always live that way. A change of lifestyle can greatly increase health and life span. We must get back to God's Plan for humanity.
