Christian Counseling, Asheville NC

Christian Counseling

While there is a deep joy and peace that can come from deciding to follow Christ, not all of our problems disappear the moment we enter into relationship with God. We are still faced with the challenges of living in this fallen world. Perhaps you are still carrying traumas from your past, having difficulties in your relationships, harboring unforgiveness, struggling with addiction, or fighting feelings of inadequacy. Throughout our conversion, a tug of war occurs between our old selves and our new identities in Christ. This battle doesn’t resolve overnight and can sometimes be challenging. However, with counsel, prayer, and the work of the Holy Spirit, you can make steps towards receiving the healing and forward progress you are desiring.

Or perhaps you’ve been wounded by religion and are looking to work through the obstacles impeding your relationship with God. As someone who experienced religious trauma and has worked through it (and still is), I understand this process. Often times, the God presented to us by the world is an inaccurate depiction. We can experience hurtful judgment, abuse, shame, or even punishment from those who represent Him. And in an effort to avoid more pain, we associate God with our past hurt and dismiss Him altogether. If you have experienced spiritual abuse or religious trauma and are interested in beginning this process of healing, don’t hesitate to reach out.  We’re local to Asheville, NC and would be happy to have an introductory conversation with you.

Christian Men’s Group

Join our Weekly Christian Men’s Group led by Taylor Houchens Counseling, PLLC. We meet every Thursday from 6:30-8:30pm in West Asheville. This is a place for men to let down their masks and be truly honest with one another. It is a place to be seen, heard, supported, held accountable, and challenged. A place to become a better man.

This group has been successfully meeting every week and growing for over a year now. Why? Because it’s honest. Men get real with other men about their lives. Because here, you belong. There is true acceptance and brotherhood and you know you are not alone. Because you grow. You are held accountable by other men and challenged to keep your word and remain in integrity. Because of God. We strive to honor God’s word and pray for each other, inviting God into each meeting. Because here, you matter. This is a space for your story to be heard. It is a place for you to be seen and known. Because your life improves. Each man’s life tangibly improves by consistently showing up and doing his work.

If you are interested in joining, join us. We are welcoming new men, whether you subscribe to the Christian faith or not.
