OUR HISTORY AND PHILOSOPHY
Christian Clinic for Counseling was founded in Oklahoma City, OK in 1982.   As a clinic, we are currently in our fourth decade of service.  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.  As a state-licensed counselor and Christian, I value professional knowledge to the extent that I earned bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees and take multiple continuing education couses each year in order to keep my professional knowledge current.  Non-Christian counselors cannot say, "We value the Bible."  Likewise, those Christian counselors who are not state-licensed 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 has used 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 our more than 37 year history.  Doctors, health insurance companies, ministers, churches, schools, and government agencies are among our referral sources.  Currently we are accepting new clients at our Edmond Office.    TRANSITION  --  A  new NOT FOR PROFIT Corporation, CHRISTIAN CLINIC FOR COUNSELING OF EDMOND'S FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH, INC., was formed October 1, 2018. Following IRS approval as a 501 (c) ( 3) organization in 2019, Dr. Cruse will dissolve Christian Clinic for Counseling, Inc.  Dr. Cruse will become CEO of CHRISTIAN CLINIC FOR COUNSELING OF EDMOND'S FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH, INC. for a period of a year or more. The clinic will serve the needs of the church membership of 3,300 people and the surrounding community.  The primary office will be in an Edmond, Oklahoma office building at the corner of 15th and Rankin, in the same office since 2014.
