Normal Phillips Ministries

Helping Organizations and People Reach Their Goals


Pastoral counselors are clergy who have received graduate training in both religion and behavioral science for a clinical practice that integrates psychological and theological disciplines.

Pastoral counselors believe that there is a God in whose image and likeness we are created. They believe that we yearn for a transforming connection with the divine, and that psychotherapy can mediate the loving and healing nature of being itself.

Pastoral counselors also make therapeutic use of traditional religious resources such as prayer, Scripture reading, and participation in the worship and community life of a congregation. They pay special attention to the religious history of the client and his or her family, noting how it may contribute to the suffering or resources needed for coping.

One psychiatrist has called pastoral counseling “clinical theology” – the search for a revelation of love, forgiveness, and good news to people who have been in bondage to their feelings and the past.

Testimony:   God’s track record is outstanding—99% of the couples that have completed our Premarital Counseling Program are still married (only 2 divorces in 29 years).  We have served families and couples for 29 years in Metropolitan Atlanta.

When a couple decides to get married, there is a tendency to go immediately into planning for the marriage.  Relationship experts agree that not laying a firm foundation prior to marriage could possibly account for divorce being on the rise today. Statistics show that few married couples ever take part in premarital counseling.

It is well known that over fifty percent of marriages today end in divorce.  But arming yourself with knowledge beforehand significantly lowers this possibility.  Over the past 29 years, 99 percent of the couples that have completed Premarital Counseling with Rev. Dr. Normal Phillips are still happily married today.  She enjoys the beautiful photos of their children.

Some of the sessions include: What the Bible Says About Marriage. Compatibility profiles, Effective Communication, Family of Origin Dynamics, Couple Mission Statement, Financial Planning, Dating After Marriage, and much more.  Hundreds of couples have prepared for and are enjoying healthy, successful marriages through Dr. Phillips’ six to ten 90-minute sessions.  The Prepare Enrich Program is an online questionnaire that couples may choose in lieu of a paper questionnaire.  Both programs are very effective in learning about your potential spouse and many techniques on resolving conflicts.

Couples may receive a discount on their marriage license applications and Dr. Phillips also offers a discount coupon for one of the sessions.

Start today.  Call Dr. Phillips at 404-212-1511.  You may also reach her at [email protected].  Review testimonies from some of the premarital couples who are enjoying victorious marriages.

We believe that each and everyone of us is created in the image of God.  Living in our God-nature, everyone desires to do good and fulfill his/her purpose in life.  To improve our lives, sometimes we need the help of an objective specialized counselor who has the appropriate training and experience to assist in facilitating the process of healing, change, and wholeness.

We present best practices, systematic approaches to the care of clients by affirming them and moving them to a mind-set and lifestyle of success, regardless of the issue.  Couple relationships have proven highly successful when they agree to make a serious commitment to their relationship.  Since 1988, ninety-eight percent (98%) of the premarital couples that have worked with us are currently happily married.  See the testimonies.

 We have a network of excellent counselors, psychologists, and psychiatrists that we refer clients to when necessary. Please don’t hesitate to call or e-mail our office if you need assistance.  We are here to lift you up.”
