About Genesis Counseling Center
Genesis Counseling Center was founded in 2005 as four licensed clinicians sought to remain together in practice after their previous employer suddenly moved from the Hampton Roads, VA area. After much prayer and counsel, Dr. Trina Young Greer, LCP, who was one of these therapists, purchased the assets and Genesis Counseling Center was born. Dr. Young Greer describes the “entrepreneurial seizure” that inspired her to become an “accidental entrepreneur”:
When colleagues of such caliber as these founding members asked me to be their employer, I paid attention. I never wanted to be a group practice owner. But neither could I allow this group of excellent therapists to dissolve. These colleagues were, and still are, a dream team of faith-based clinicians. The only reason I would not have founded Genesis would be fear. And I couldn’t let fear guide me. Instead, the vision of the entrepreneur was birthed. It’s been an incredible journey, starting with the honeymoon of excitement, followed by trials and amazing growth. Through it all, we had to stay focused on our values, vision and mission. There is great joy in knowing we are “touching and inspiring” our clients’ lives now and for eternity.
Genesis Counseling Center has grown from a small team of four to now over 45 clinicians at 6 sites. This growth included the merger with Beacon Counseling and Consulting of Williamsburg, VA in 2010. Through the Genesis system the practice has experienced incredible growth, most recently 20% a year, and now serving over 3,500 client sessions a month.
