A Christian Approach to Psychotherapy

Dr Suzanne Baars is a licensed professional counselor and marriage and family therapist in Irving, Texas, where she operates her private practice, In His Image Christian Counseling. Sue has worked extensively in the field of counseling since 1986 in both hospital and outpatient settings, and focuses her work on the integration of the Christian anthropology of St. Thomas Aquinas with the treatment of a variety of emotional & spiritual problems, among them Emotional Deprivation Disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder and scrupulosity. She is also a popular presenter at Catholic conferences around the country and has been a frequent guest on EWTN’s Women of Grace. She often presents the work of her late father, psychiatrist and author Conrad Baars, a pioneer in the field of Catholic psychology. Sue cites the cultural erosion of the family as the root of the lack of affirmation from which many people in our time suffer.


Some of Sue’s lecture series include: Made in His Image: Healing and Wholeness for Living the Affirming Life (4 CDs) and The Abode of Love: Developing the Heart (10 CDs). She and a colleague edited a collection of Dr. Baars’ articles and monographs related to the priesthood entitled, I Will Give Them a New Heart: Reflections on the Priesthood and the Renewal of the Church.

Sue has been on the faculty of the Institute for Priestly Formation almost every summer since 2008, where she teaches diocesan seminarians. She is a Past President of the Catholic Psychotherapy Association and holds a doctorate in Family Therapy from Texas Woman’s University.

Topics discussed in this episode of the Dr. J Show include

  • Many "scientific" research studies are driven by, and corrupted by, an agenda.
  • LGBTQIA+ apologists masquerading as scientists resist admitting the baseline differences in parenting results.
  • LGBTQIA+ apologists add duplicate variables, because, if you keep adding variables, you can design your conclusion.
  • 55% of children living under same-sex couples experience parental separation.
  • There are professional pressures on researchers to ignore basic factors.
  • The promiscuity & relationship instability of the homosexual lifestyle inevitably leads to break-ups, which most harm children. Among homosexuals, "open" relationships of tolerated cheating is just "another way of loving."
  • SCOTUS' Obergefell decision did nothing to diminish sexual minority distress. The fact is, neither hormones nor surgery helps mental health issues in transgenders.
  • Even though a pro-trans study may be proven wrong, it still gets shared (cited) all around the world.
  • LGBTQIA+ social media trolls create scandals and/or crises to discredit studies that disprove the gay or trans agenda.
  • Homosexuals and transgenders do not like reality (the truths of this life). LGBTQIA+ people will always be at war with the truth, because they hate reality and want to change human nature.
  • Like many professions since the Sexual Revolution, to be accepted, sociologists must pay respects to false gods.
  • Parental stability is key for a child's academic and psychological progress. If we took children's rights seriously, the way we understand these things would be profoundly different.
  • Kids are entitled to a relationship with both their natural parents.
