The Pastoral Counseling Service

Confidentially serving Peachtree Road and the greater Atlanta community

The Pastoral Counseling Service has been a ministry of Peachtree Road United Methodist Church since 1974. Our counseling center provides a wide range of individual, couple, children, and family counseling for both church members and the greater Atlanta community.

Academically trained and clinically licensed therapists staff the Pastoral Counseling Service. The positive reputation of this service, the confidentiality of issues, and the private physical location within the church have established the Pastoral Counseling Service as a successful and unique practice in this area.

Ron Greer and Andrea DeWalt are seasoned therapists at the Pastoral Counseling Service, bringing the diversity needed for an inclusive counseling center.
