OUR HISTORY AND PHILOSOPHY
Christian Clinic for Counseling, located in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, was founded in 1982. As a clinic,we are currently entering our fourth decade of service in our own building and in the same location. Psychologist, Dr. J. Ronald Cruse, saw the need for a private Christian counseling service, unconnected to any church building or religious denomination, to deal with people's mental health problems. Believing that mature state-licensed Christian counselors are essential for dealing with significant mental health concerns, Dr. Cruse was also committed to the truth that God delivers practical help for people's life problems through His written Word, The Bible. Scripture forms the ultimate foundation for wise counsel. We value the Bible today even more than at our beginning. We value the Bible enough to continue to study it, teach it, and use it in counseling. While we value the Bible and its wise counsel, we also value professional knowledge. Counselors add practical information and techniques and join with God in His work. Our state-licensed Christian counselors value professional knowledge to the extent that they take multiple continuing education couses each year in order to keep their professional knowledge current. Non-Christian counselors cannot say, "We value the Bible." Likewise, those who are not state-licensed Christian counselors cannot make the strong statement, "We value professional knowledge," or they would gain enough education and professional knowledge to be examined for licensure. "Let the buyer beware." There are many professionally unqualified and biblically unqualified counselors who are marketing their services.
Some people request that Christian emphases not be an explicit part of their counseling. Each person's choices are honored. We respect the individual's wishes while still offering our basic professional services.
God uses highly- trained, mature state-licensed counselors as His servants through the ministry of Christian Clinic. He has been pleased to send us literally thousands of people over the years. Doctors, health insurance companies, ministers, churches, schools, and government agencies are among our referral sources. Currently, clients continue to come at a rate of approiximately 50 a week. It is not unusual to hear a new client say, "I believe God sent me here." And in response, we say, "Yes, we know. We, too, believe God sent you." God brings us together in hope for healing and help in the process of change.
Most of the time people come to our offices for face-to-face counseling. Over the years, we have occasionally provided telephone counseling when there were special needs that prevented clients from coming to our offices. Call our office at 1-405-943-1281 for a counseling appointment. We will be extremely pleased to assist you whether you telephone us or come in person.
