Dr. Day is a retired Christian Counselor with 31 years of private practice in Portland, Oregon. An author and speaker at seminars, conferences and retreats, he continues to speak both locally and nationally. He and his wife Gail now live in Central Oregon when not traveling throughout the U. S. speaking and being tourists. They have four children, Kent, Talitha, Tabitha and Timothy.

Dr. Day received his Th.B. degree in Bible from Multnomah University and a B.A. degree in Sociology-Anthropology from Western Washington University. From Wheaton Graduate School of Theology, he earned his M.A. degree in New Testament and he received his Ph.D. degree in Counseling Psychology from Rosemead School of Psychology.

Larry has traveled in over 35 countries around the world in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, the South Pacific, Central and South America. These travels included studying under Dr. Francis Schaefer at L’Abri in Switzerland and working for 2 months on a Kibbutz in Israel during the ‘60’s. He enjoys running, hiking, fishing, hunting, mountain climbing, reading, traveling and photography.

Larry’s passion is helping others learn that they are wonderfully made in the image and likeness of God. His years of experience as a counselor and speaker taught him that when people appreciate the wonder of how God created them in His image, they are free to grow and change in ways they never imagined were possible. They also understand (sometimes for the first time) why God loves them and why Jesus was willing to die for them. Life can become meaningful, enjoyable, real, and healthy.

Dr. Day’s book, “Self-Esteem: By God’s Design” is a compilation of his work as a counselor and speaker helping people understand what it means to be made in the image and likeness of God (Genesis 1:26-27; Psalm 139:13-14). It has been used by God to change thousands of lives.

Counseling: Difficult People: Handling Them Effectively Before They Drive You Nuts

We all live and work with difficult people everywhere: at home, jobs, church, or in public. We do our best to handle them but the stress and strain often leads to unwanted reactions and consequences. Often we wished they would just disappear. A more practical solution is to understand the dynamics of these relationships and learn practical perspectives and skills to handle them more effectively in our daily life and ministry.

Counseling: Fear and Worry: Understanding and Diminishing Their Power Over Us

3/5/2016

What would life be like if the feelings of fear and worry did not have as much control over us? They rob us of many good things in both our personal and spiritual life. We'll talk about where fear and worry come from; how they are linked to imagination or memory; how we become victims of our fears; and how we can experience different levels of victory over fears and worries.
