FREEDOM…That is the first word that comes to mind regarding my Biblical counseling sessions with Dr. Steve Ellis.

I went to him because of serious relationship problems in my marriage.  At the time my husband and I were separated and he would not consent to counseling.   After patiently listening to my story, one of the first things Dr. Ellis did was to give me the Arno Temperament Profile, which revealed my temperament – the way God created me as a unique individual.  I was a little afraid to hear the results of this “profiling”, but when Dr. Ellis  went over them with me, I was so relieved.  This information was truth and it was powerful – a lot of my confusion was eliminated.

I can honestly say that Dr. Ellis has a clear and obvious God-given gift of spiritual teaching and counseling.  He never failed to show compassion, and yet because of his spiritual insight, was able to show me the things I should and could change about myself that would lead me into a closer walk with Christ, and give me peace even though the future was unknown.

With further counseling sessions with Dr. Ellis and his wife, Brenda, and with much prayer and seeking God’s guidance, a reconciliation and a much more honest relationship with my husband was achieved.

As a special gift from God, I also have the love and friendship of Steve and Brenda Ellis that I will forever cherish.
