About Us

All Rapha counselors are at least Master’s level therapists, licensed in the state of Texas and adhering to the highest standards of our profession. We are also fellow travelers, committed to walking with you in your unique journey. We count it as one of our greatest and most humbling privileges to come alongside you in your struggle, entering into the complexity and wonder of the story God is authoring in your life.


Rapha Christian Counseling began as Irving Christian Counseling (ICC) in 1976 in the DFW metroplex.  It was founded by Floyd Sharp and Jim Simmons who had a heart for offering professional Biblical counseling to all people, regardless of background or ability to pay. In January of 2001, Irving Christian Counseling connected with Rapha by becoming Rapha Christian Counseling (RCC). Through the years, Rapha has remained committed to its motto of being a counseling center that is “clinically professional and distinctively Christian.” Rapha currently has one location in Irving, Texas and is not affiliated with the Rapha brand that once ran a nationwide network of mental health hospitals.
