Training Services



Valley Pastoral Counseling Center offers two types of training opportunities. As an Institutional Affiliate of the American Association of Pastoral Counselors, we offer an on-site intensive Pastoral Care Specialist certificate program which is open to both clergy and laypersons and provides training in brief supportive pastoral care and counseling. Successful completion of the program also provides eligibility for the Pastoral Care Specialist membership level in the American Association of Pastoral Counselors.

VPCC also offers on-site training and clinical supervision approved by the Virginia Board of Counseling for licensure candidates in the mental health field at the practicum, intern, and residency levels. Openings are limited; therefore we suggest interested candidates inquire early in their programs about availability.

If you would like more information about either of the above opportunities please contact Emilie Thomas, Training Coordinator, by email at pastoral or by phone at (540) 932-1476.
