David Daroff

Licensed Professional Counselor

In high school, David Daroff felt the Lord calling him to make a public commitment to follow Him and go into full-time Christian ministry. It was this commitment that guided his choices of study and pursuit of degrees. He has over 20 years of experience in pastoral ministry as a senior pastor and youth pastor. During this time, David spent many hours in pastoral counseling, discipleship, problem-solving, and using spiritual gifts and biblical authority to help people seek out positive ways to live, work, and maintain relationships.

Before coming to the Marriage Recovery Center, David also worked as a professional counselor with the Department of Corrections in Wyoming and served in the Men’s Maximum-Security Prison. He saw this as an opportunity to answer the call to go to those in prison, not only to visit but also to bring light to those with very little hope.

David loves finding ways to help modify behaviors so they better conform to God’s intended purposes for our lives. He believes that solutions are not always isolated events that magically cure everything and therapy takes work on the part of the client and the counselor. He will listen to really hear your story, then devise a therapy plan with you including behavior modification and cognitive, client-centered, existential, and/or narrative therapy techniques to help guide you to the results you seek.

14 Common Thinking Errors God Wants To Transform

Most people assume they have clear thinking. They believe their thoughts are logical. Therefore, when people disagree with them, they think it is everyone else who is wrong. But can we, ourselves, really be the source of authority for everything? Of course not. We all have thinking errors that are destructive to our life and relationships.

What it Means to Be a Real Man

Growing up in the United States, I learned that a “real man” was supposed to be tough, self-sufficient, strong, smart, rich, and desired by women. “Real men” don’t lose fights or sporting events. The Old West portrayed men as not needing much for themselves, but willing to die for justice and truth. Good guys were never bad and bad guys, in the end, always lost. On the other end of the spectrum, our present-day culture portrays a very different view of men. Men are often viewed as selfish, sexually charged, uncaring, stoic, and controlling. At the same time, they are often expected to work and provide, to be useful, to make wise decisions and to eventually amass enough wealth to retire. I find that many men lose their personal sense of identity if they buy into either of these world views.

Do I really need to win? 7 Rules of a Fair Fight

As a younger man I often heard things like “winning is not everything, It’s the only thing.” Who wants to lose? Many men seem to equate being gentle and patient with loss. But the truth is, self-promotion is loss, and lifting others up is winning. Many of the men who join our program, The Core, think they’re always right; everything is and should be as they see it. They will say things like, “A good wife, a Christian woman, should just submit.” They often feel they’re being controlled and respond by blaming their wives for forcing them to do something. But the wives also complain about being controlled and manipulated.
