Derrick Sledge

Drug and Alcohol Counselor, Licensed Professional Counselor - Supervisor | MS, MABS, LCDC, LPC-S

I have about 20 years in school counseling and therapy work in public school districts and about 2 years of work experience as a counselor in several non-profit agencies. I work with children (ages 12 and older), adolescents and adult populations. My counseling approach is one that is distinctly Christian and sourced in the healing, restorative and life transforming power of God’s Holy word- The Holy Bible. I believe that secular counseling theories are valid, and useful, insofar as they align with Scripture. My experience has shown me that there is practical benefit in using certain secular therapies that reflect principles in God’s word (e.g., Solution Focused Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy). Thus, such therapies, when enhanced by Scripture, can help clients resolve their problems biblically.

Currently, I am pursuing the Doctorate in Educational Ministry (DEdMin) degree at Dallas Theological Seminary. I hold a Master’s degree in Biblical Studies from Dallas Theological Seminary and a Master’s degree in Counseling from Texas A & M University-Commerce. I am a Certified School Counselor, LCDC and an LPC-S. I’ve been in private practice at Christian Counseling Associates on a part-time basis since 2006.

Let’s trust the Lord to bless our collaboration as we venture forward on a journey of healing.
