"Pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart." 2 Timothy 2:22
Counseling the Lord's Way was established in Warner Robins in 2006 moving from Hawkinsville, GA, when Dr. Wayne, recognizing the growing need for Christian Counselors in this area, decided to take the practice from a very part time counseling to a full-time operation. This is still a growing practice and will continue to grow as it becomes better known in the area. In addition to face to face counseling, in 2008 we added eCounseling through eCounseling.com and now have telephone, chat and email counseling available for our clients. If you wish to participate in online counseling (eCounseling) see our eCounseling page.
Counseling the Lord's Way is located conveniently on Russell Parkway in Warner Robins, GA, halfway between Lake Joy Road and GA Highway 41 on the South side of the road in the Office/storage unit complex "Simply Self Storage". There is plenty of parking and lots of privacy.
We are available by "appointment only". Call our main number 478-719-3054 or email us at DrWayne@counselingthelordsway.com. Generally we see clients on Tuesday thru Friday with appointments frequently available in the morning and late afternoon.
