Darren Dickens, LPC

Christ commands us in Matthew 22:37-39 to love God and to love people. As God has called and equipped me to love people, He has taught me how to help people love themselves. I do not profess to be a healer nor do I promise a better life to all that I serve. Rather, I strive to help others identify themselves as the created image of God, and to live fulfilled in their life, family, and work.
