For years I've suffered with anxiety and been treated with anti-depressant drugs. In 2018 I met Dr. Scott, seeking true Christian counselling and my life is changing in a dramatic way. Through him, I am learning to truly abide in Christ and to abound in the fruit of the Spirit continuously. I now know I can enjoy love, joy, and peace every moment. Through his loving, biblical guidance I am becoming free in Christ. Dr. Scott is a man of God who I am blessed to follow as he follows Christ.

Dr. Scott is truly a Christian counselor! Not a Christian counselor that uses standard techniques, but as Christian counselor with completely biblically based counseling techniques. He is very responsive and willing to help whenever needed. Even after hours. He is an amazing man of God and I would recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Scott is a friendly, easy to talk to counselor. He is very knowledgeable with genuine Christian advice and treatment as well as secular methods. He is also very willing to work with insurance so that people can get the treatment they need. Give him a try!

Bruce in Rockford, IL – Oct 24, 2018
Dr Scott has been an answer to prayer. I started seeing him after struggling with depression for several years. He has challenged my faith and taught me to abide in Christ and depend on him for all things. Healing did not happen overnight but within the first several months of consistent sessions, I began to shift my thinking patterns and truly live a life where love, joy and peace where the norm. I am so thankful that Dr. Scott counsels from the Word of God and encourages me in the Truth.

I am so thankful I was guided to Dr. Scott for counseling. As his profile states, he is a True Christian Counselor. He will provide the tools you need to recover from whatever you are suffering from. If you use these tools faithfully you will be on your way to be who you strive to be. Dr. Scott tells me what I NEED to hear not what I WANT to hear!

RM in Loves Park – Oct 13, 2018
Dr Lownsdale was helpful in individual counseling, but marriage counseling was not handled well. Because he had invited us to do so, I let him know about some things he said that I wasn't comfortable with. He seemed to receive it humbly, explaining himself well. I thought things were fine. Then, at the next marriage counseling session, Dr L berated & belittled me in an unwarranted & unprofessional way. I walked out & will not go back. He also belittled professional female counselors. So wrong.

I have been seeing Dr. Lownsdale for over nine years. The reason I continue to go is that he has a special gift of listening well to his patients and creating a safe environment to be real and also be challenged to grow. Anytime I call with a need, he is there to listen, pray and offer wise counsel. He gives great customer service on getting appointments. Finding a counselor is a delicate choice. Dr. Lownsdale has exceeded my expectations!

Kind, caring, and very empathetic. Provides Christian counseling --but not in a pushy pious manner.
