I committed my life to Christ at a young age and have continued my walk with Him throughout my life. This life-style has shaped all of my communications to people with whom I interact. In fact, my counseling profession has been built on Romans 12: 2. This Truth indicates that we are transformed (a work God performs) by the renewing of the mind (a way in which we participate in His work) that leads to a demonstration of Fruit such as love, peace, joy, etc (Galatians 5).
I specialize in quickly understanding where a person is and what might best help them resolve personal anxiety, relational problems, and family concerns from a Christian world view. The most effective strategies that I have found to work with believers is clarifying the Truth that leads to right thinking, which facilitates right acting. This is the essence of Christian Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). This is also tied directly to our identity in Christ.
I incorporate my personal walk with Christ, biblical foundation, and clinical expertise such as the use of CBT into every aspect of my life and counseling with others. This authenticity is what empowers true conviction, thought, and action. It is not just instruction that our Lord gave us, but imparting, which is much deeper and life changing then mere teaching. I know that you and I want to hear "Well done" one day when we are with Him.
I use a Christian version of Parent- Adult- Child model (from of understanding and explaining the transition of both parties in the couple relationship and in helping the couple to grasp the roles they have with others in their family. I also integrate materials from some great Christian family advocates like Focus on the Family, Family Life Today, and other ministries to enhance education about family relationships.
"Godliness with contentment is great gain" (1 Timothy 6.6).

Dr Ciraky is patient and straight forward. I like his honesty. I also like how he tries to help me connect the dots in my situation so that I'll be able to find my own exit strategy and the road to healing and wholeness. Instead of telling me what to do, he just leads, guides, encourages, while letting me find my own way. I appreciate that.
Very helpful - Dr. Ciraky lets you let out what is inside and asks questions to prompt sharing things which are more difficult to share. He offers Christian advice where needed and on many occasions has given me a lightbulb moment where I just realize why I'm feeling the way I do, and helps me work through things with his godly support and guidance - I really appreciate all the help he has given me to date.
Dr. Ciraky has been a God send. He has been working with me for the last 7 months and has been everything I could have asked for!!! I’ve had a wonderful experience and suggested this company to many friends!
Thank you for your help! May God continue blessing others thru your service.
Dr Ciraky impressed me with his expertise. He listens well, analyzes your situation with you and is able to give advice and guidance. Dr Ciraky also provides different type of supporting exercises that can help in between sessions and that always are perfectly adjusted to your situation.
I am new to this counseling service but so far I am impressed with the communication process and the advice I have received.
Dr. Ciraky helped me see that my "depression" was really just intense grief, and he's given me the tools I needed to walk out of it one-step-at-a-time. He has helped me track my progress and see that I am getting better, and for the first time in a very long time I truly have hope. I'm living instead of just existing. Amazing that just a few little things he pointed out to me and asked me to do have made such an enormous difference. I no longer feel stuck in my pain. I'd recommend him to my closest family and friends.
It is clear that God has directed and is directing the counseling that is occurring between Dr Ciraky and myself. We begin with prayer and end in prayer. The insight gained has been very comforting. The Holy Spirit is at work and I am grateful for the clarity of thought during a very confusing time in my life.
Dr. Ciraky was helpful to me. He especially helped me understand some of my faulty thinking which cleared the path and eased my mind. He focused on my goals during our time and encouraged me to think through additional goals.
