Tidewater Pastoral Counseling Services, 757-623-2700

Great Bridge Presbyterian Church has three counselors from Tidewater Pastoral Counseling available for counseling during the week: Georgianna Brabban-Johnson, M.Div., and Marty Phillips, LPC., and Kay Dezern.

Tidewater Pastoral Counseling Services is essentially people…people who are educated and trained to help you grow in your most significant relationships and in your own personal life. TPCS is a not-for-profit extension of the Judeo-Christian faith community dedicated to providing quality pastoral counseling and education to anyone regardless of age, race, faith perspective or socio-economic background. Organized in 1974, TPCS serves more than 1,500 clients annually in eight centers throughout Hampton Roads. The staff are ordained or licensed clergy representing a wide variety of denominations, who have specialized training and certification through the American Association of Pastoral Counselors.

Many of the 14 pastoral counselors on staff are licensed in Virginia as Professional Counselors and/or Marriage and Family Therapists. Like other mental health professionals, pastoral counselors are required to complete a clinical training program and possess a working knowledge of personality development, psychopathology, theories of counseling, the psychology of religious experience and marriage and family dynamics. Unlike other mental health professionals, pastoral counselors are required to have a graduate degree in theology, ordination or its equivalent, three years experience in parish ministry and the endorsement of a recognized faith group. Pastoral counseling tends to be person-centered rather than problem-centered and focuses on the growth of individuals rather than the psychopathology or deficiencies of persons.
Both counselors accept new referrals and can accept most insurance; however, TPCS does not turn away anyone due to their inability to pay. Counseling is available for kids, adults, couples and families. Call 623-2700 for an appointment or visit their website: Tidewater Pastoral Counseling.
