general unhappiness, separation problems, children of divorce problems, physical abuse, codependency and
other areas.

Our counseling combines the teaching of Jesus Christ with what has learned in the behavioral sciences to
serve primarily people of faith. Many persons who come for counseling may not be active in their churches at
this time but feel they would rather have a Christian counselor. Most persons are referred by pastors to Rev.
Johnson. Non-Christians also find counseling beneficial since they may desire counseling with a moral basis..

Fees are on a sliding scale based on income and ability to pay. Sessions are by appointment.

The Rev. Johnson is in his twentieth year as a pastoral counselor. He attended the Virginia Institute of
Pastoral Care (VIPCare) and successfully completed a two year internship in Christian counseling. VIPCare is
one of the oldest educational institutions in the US that trains Pastoral Counselors.

Saint George's School of Theology. His Master's degree is from N.C. State, and his Doctorate was granted by
St. George's. He was a public school educator and worked in industry during his career before becoming an
ordained minister. He was ordained in the Anglican Church Faith, but was "born" into the Southern Baptist's
denomination as a boy. As an adult he was introduced to the Anglican Faith while serving in the United States
Marine Corps.

He is a member of the American Psychotherapy Association and holds the certification of Fellow. He is  
retired from membership in the American Society of Association Executives. He served many years as a
