Congratulations to Pro Bono Counseling (PBC) Executive Director Amy Greensfelder, LCSW, who celebrated commencement of The Leadership Class of 2023 on Wednesday, November 1. Amy was one of 64 nonprofit, public, and private organization leaders who participated in the nine-month program that utilizes experiential learning and focused on three elements:

  1. Exploring Baltimore’s history, challenges, assets, and people.
  2. Developing leadership competencies.
  3. Forging substantive relationships amongst participants.

Pro Bono Counseling (PBC), a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, was founded in 1991 to ensure that Marylanders with limited resources requesting mental health care are provided access to volunteer licensed mental health professionals and other necessary supportive services. Since then, PBC has helped match thousands of individuals and families throughout Maryland with the most appropriate counselors, based on their specific needs, and helped them obtain the mental health care they could not otherwise afford.

PBC serves anyone in Maryland who is facing difficulties paying for counseling – including individuals of all ages, as well as couples, and families– through connections to volunteer mental health therapists for free counseling to address mental health concerns, including stress, anxiety, sadness, grief, life transitions, relationship issues, or any other issue that can be addressed through therapy. PBC has a network of more than 850 volunteer licensed mental health counselors, covering a range of specialties, located all throughout Maryland. Counseling services are offered in person, where available, and via video conferencing and telephone.
