A few years ago, when I was in the deepest, darkest, bowels of clinical depression, I secretly Googled “Christian Counselors” and found Dan Blanchard. What I hoped would only be a quick little introduction to the realm of professional counseling, turned into months of therapy. I have no doubt in my mind that God led me directly to his office door. And kept me there until I got better.
Simply put: Dan. Was. Awesome.
I credit my quick recovery from my seven-year battle with major depression to Dan. Well, Dan and Lexapro. And, of course, God. Okay, God, Dan and then Lexapro….in that order.
It’s been almost 3 years since I graced Dan’s office door. And though I know Dan is always there for me whenever I need a “counselor,” I now have the even higher privilege of calling him “Friend.”
I asked him if he would kindly write a guest post on perfectionism, from a Christian therapist’s standpoint. Not that he ever had to address this issue with ME or anything…ahem. Not only did he say “yes,” but he cranked out a masterpiece in about a day. Like I said, he’s awesome. So, it is my pleasure to introduce today, one of my most favoritest people in the world, Mr, Dan Blanchard.
