Caring for the Heart 


          Caring for the Heart California is a Christian, Biblically based, intensive 3 day course of counseling. It is designed for couples; those thinking of marriage or needing help to build a stronger, more fulfilling one. Dr. Dan Bohannon has been counseling using this successful method for more than 12 years.
He was trained and certified in the Caring for the Heart method of counseling by John Regier at the Colorado Springs Headquarters.
    Every person has some emotional pain in their lives; we can’t escape it due to our sinful nature and living in a sinful, fallen world.  
The extent of emotional pain can run the gamut from mild to severe. This pain causes us to “lock up” and affects how we respond to ourselves and others in our lives.
Why are people angry, fearful, controlling, submissive, depressed, emotionally detached, untrusting, living with feelings of rejection, into pornography or are excessively impulsive? The Caring for the Heart method of counseling can give you answers to these questions.
We become emotionally damaged in one of two ways: by receiving something we should never have received (i.e. abuse, criticism, pressure to perform, rejection, etc.) or by not receiving something we should have (i.e. emotional connections, affirmation, value, etc.).
Caring for the Heart counseling seeks to identify a person’s core emotional pain and teach their spouse how to care for the person’s heart at the point of that pain.  Our method seeks to deal with the heart and not solely the head.
The process is as follows:
  •       After initially contacting us we will mail you a packet that will include forms to be filled out.
  •      There will also be one test to take online;  the Taylor Johnson Temperament Analysis Profile.
  •       After you complete the forms within the packet, mail it back to us and we will schedule the time for counseling.
  •      Our time together will take 3 days: typically, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. with a break for lunch.
 To schedule an appointment or for further information, please contact Dr. Bohannon directly at 308 279-0996.
