CCM Philosophy

With a Biblical philosophy of counseling and a desire to help individuals, marriages and families, Christian Counseling of Mansfield was established in 2003 with the help of several local pastors and churches. Dell and his wife Susan have been married since 1981.  They have three married children and are the proud grandparents of seven amazing grandkids.  He and Susan were also involved with Buckner Baptist Homes as foster parents to seven amazing foster children.

Dell Canright received his Master of Arts in Biblical Counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary in December of 1999. After completing his internship at a Biblical Counseling organization in Bedford, he was licensed by the State of Texas as a Licensed Professional Counselor in 2003. He later earned his certification to become a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor for interns.  Before becoming a counselor, Dell spent 6 years as a teacher (one of those being an Associate Missionary with what is now Ethnos360) teaching missionary kids; he and Susan also served on church staff for 9 years as youth ministers.  Their mutual passion is to see individuals, marriages, and families grow into the likeness of Christ through the ministry of the Scriptures.  Dell has a real passion to see men become equipped to lead their families well, husbands learning to love their wives well, and the family growing into a community that models Christ-likeness in all aspects of the family relationships.


Dell is committed to counseling from the Scriptures.  This simply means that not only does he believe the Scriptures are inspired by God (2 Timothy 3:16, 17), but he also believes the Scriptures are sufficient for all matters pertaining to life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3). Dell would welcome an opportunity to meet with you and/or your family.
