It is not a weakness to seek help from time to
time-with personal decisions or with
something you feel is an insurmountable
problem.
Crises come to people of all walks of
life. Perhaps you have questions about your
direction in life: perhaps you don't feel as
satisfied as you think you should at work or with
relationships. You may be suffering from loss or
depressed. Seeking help is the first step to a
happier life. Acknowledging that help is needed
shows strength of character and is an important
first step toward healing. If you know someone
who needs help with personal decisions or their
direction in life: someone who is dealing with
loss of job or a loved one; or perhaps someone
who is having difficulty facing the situation the
country finds itself in today, please consider
directing them to Christian Guidance and
Counseling.
How does this counseling differ from secular
counseling?

"Christian Guidance Counseling combines the
teaching of Christ with what we have learned in the
behavioral sciences to overcome personal
problems. Our counseling is Biblically based
seeking to unite the teaching of Jesus Christ with
techniques of counseling hereby offering a program
that provides a solid foundation for solving problems
and achieving goals."

which counseling is

What is Christian Guidance Counseling?

It is a private program headed by The Rev. Larry W.
Johnson. Fees are on a sliding fee schedule based on
income. Those with no income or unemployed are offered
services.

Who is the counselor?

Psychotherapy Association and has the designation of

before becoming an ordained clergyman in the Anglican
Faith.

before joining the United States Marine Corps and
coming to Washington, D.C. to work. He has extensive
business experience and is called upon to consult with  
corporations from time to time. His last executive position

America.  However, his focus is on helping people and
families in the counseling room. He has over twenty years
experience as a Pastoral Counselor

Fees are based on your income. So it is a sliding
schedule. Those without an income will not be turned
away.

come who are not active in any church or
