Who We Are
For 30 years, the Kilgore Samaritan Counseling Center has been helping the healing of individuals and families. We provide services to all members of our community regardless of their ability to pay, thanks to the generosity of our supporters.

Kilgore Samaritan is a faith-sensitive non-profit counseling center that recognizes the importance and power of the relationship between a person’s spiritual growth and their emotional and physical well-being.

Our staff has both theological and counseling training so we express the love and grace of God through a ministry of pastoral counseling that is respectful of all religions and the faith of our clients. However, our mission is to serve all those in need even if they are not faith driven or spiritually oriented. We will guide you down the path of your choosing.

With six distinguished and highly skilled counselors and therapists, including psychologists, licensed clinical social workers, licensed clinical alcohol and drugs counselor, licensed marriage and family therapists and pastoral counselors, our staff leverages their behavioral science experience, knowledge and understanding to help plot a course to improve your quality of life.

We provide specialized counseling for families and individuals, especially for children, adolescents, and the elderly. We offer pastoral and faith-sensitive relationship counseling, marriage therapy, behavior consulting, and substance use prevention and addiction, as well as psychological testing.

Unique to Kilgore is our specialization in providing assistance to the Clergy and helping with Congregational Care. We work with local ministers and congregations by offering premarital counseling, and educational programs that deal with parenting, divorce, couples communications, and family issues. We also work directly with the clergy and other religious professionals who face difficult situations in their own lives. Kilgore has expanded its reach in serving greater Louisville by partnering with the West End School and The Healing Place.

The Kilgore Samaritan Counseling center was established in 1987 through the vision and dedication of Betty Moss Gibbs and is named in memory of her father, Ben Kilgore.

With the support and guidance of Second Presbyterian Church and St. Francis in the Fields Episcopal Church as their extended ministry, we are ready to answer the call to your needs.
The beginning of love is the will to let those we love be perfectly themselves, the resolution not to twist them to fit our own image. If in loving them we do not love what they are, but only their potential likeness to ourselves, then we do not love them: we only love the reflection of ourselves we find in them.
