It is a pleasure to recommend Ellen Dean as a professional Biblical counselor.  I have recommended her to many people through the years and heard back wonderful reports of how the sessions went.  Ellen possesses The Spirit of Jesus Christ  as she confronts, what are many times, difficult issues.  She offers guidance from a Biblical, godly perspective.  I have the  utmost  confidence in Ellen and will continue to refer people to her for Biblical counsel.

As a pastor, I consistently find myself in conversations with families and individuals in need of counseling and help with life problems.  Ellen Dean is a counselor whom I regularly refer people to in order to receive the help they need.  As a friend and fellow co-laborer in the ministry for over a decade, Ellen is trustworthy and always walks the path toward hope, health and healing in appropriate ways.  I regularly refer people to Ellen and know with confidence and conviction that she will handle and help all people with grace, truth and love.  It is an honor and privilege to recommend Ellen Dean for your counseling needs.

She is effective both with individuals and couples. Her approach is direct, caring and always grounded in scriptures. It is a blessing to have Ellen as a ministry partner I can trust.

I am grateful for the ministry The Lord has given Ellen Dean as a counselor who graciously brings the Word of God and His love and mercy to bear upon the souls of broken people.  She is a good gift to our fellowship to serve our people when a godly, gifted and discerning counselor is needed.


Dr. John Hall, Pastor, Field Street Baptist Church, Cleburne, Texas

Thank you for being with us again this year. The sessions were very carefully orchestrated and relevant for couples and also for parents. The entire weekend was of great value; positive, instructive and practical in strengthening my own marriage and family. Bob and Ellen represent two examples of thoughtful, intentional and godly parents. Their marriage mirrors the deepest commitment and love a couple can share.


Jim Witt, Associate Pastor, First Baptist Church, Garland, Texas

When Ellen Dean came and spoke to our Parenting Group; she was warm, compassionate, and engaging.  Combine that with excellent listening and counseling skills, and I heartily recommend Ellen to you as a counselor and instructor.

Ellen Dean is a woman who lives what she believes, what she teaches and what she counsels. She loves the Lord with all of her heart, and she demonstrates this love to every client that walks through her door. She boldly shares the Truth to those who need it with a gentle and quiet spirit. She exemplifies the Proverbs 31 woman: she is a wonderful friend, mentor, and colleague.
