Austin Christian Counseling


Are you looking for therapy that incorporates your Christian faith?

At AFC we offer Christian Counseling for clients looking for a therapist who incorporates faith and spirituality into treatment. Often times individuals would like to meet with someone who can offer sound psychological treatment aligned with their faith. Whether you want to read scripture in your session or if you simply want to have a therapist who understands your worldview, we have therapists who can meet this need. Clients who seek Christian Counseling are looking for a therapist who understands the importance of their spiritual beliefs.

Our Christian counselors use all of their counseling tools while maintaining a Christ- focused perspective. Our counselors treat your faith as an integral component of your counseling needs. If you have been hesitant about going to counseling because you are not sure where your faith fits in, our counselors can help address this with you. Perhaps you are having difficulty with your relationship with others or with God, or you are struggling with a particular burden. Our counselors will compassionately integrate your faith into the counseling session to work with you to address these issues.
