Over 20 Years of Experience in Family Counseling Services
Since 1995, Grace Life International has provided effective family counseling services and helped restore hurting families. Our gifted staff is here to walk beside you toward healing and wholeness for your your family. No matter what season in life you are experiencing, we can help.
Many of the staff at Grace Life have encountered difficulties with their children and walked the same path you face. The answers they found are the same good news for you:
God’s grace can transform any family,
and we’ve seen incredible change for over 20 years!
At Grace Life, we offer a safe place where parents and kids can be open and real. In this environment, we use biblical principles to lovingly walk with families into freedom, healing, and restoration. We call this discipleship counseling.
After 20 years of helping hundreds of families, we believe that a Christian’s ability to love their children hinges upon walking in the reality of the New Covenant. Living in the promises of God’s grace can produce dramatic change, such as:
- Deeper sense of oneness with your family knowing you are united with God.
- Healing from past emotional pain, conflict, and relational baggage.
- Closer bond with your children.
- Easier ability to impart spiritual growth into your kids.
- Inner strength to remain positive when your family does not love in return.

FAMILY COUNSELING FAQ’S
How do I start family counseling?
To begin discipleship counseling, call our main office in Charlotte at 704-522-9026 or our Asheville Office at 828-771-6973 to set up a consultation.

Regular counseling sessions are 50 minutes in length. To maximize the time, we ask clients to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to their scheduled appointment. At times, double sessions may be scheduled to deal with certain issues (with your approval).

What if I’m being abused by my spouse or need crisis care for my children?
Grace Life International is not equipped for emergency crisis care. If you are experiencing suicidal thoughts, any type of abuse (physical, sexual, or emotional) or your kids are suffering from psychological distress or substance abuse, please take action today. We can help recommend other sources to get immediate help. Our discipleship counseling process can take time, and couples and families who need emergency care may not be able to wait. If you or someone you know is in crisis, please call one of the following number for immediate help:
- Emergency situations: Dial 911
- National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-8255
- National Domestic Violence Hotline: 1-800-799-7233
- Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline: 1-800-422-4453
After you receive help for any of these crises, we may be able to help with follow-up counseling.
What if my family members will not join me for counseling?
We always prefer that all family member join you for family counseling to deal with issues together. Encourage family members to contact us directly if they have any questions or concerns. If the other family members will not participate, we encourage you to start counseling by yourself to examine your own life and develop personal wholeness in God.
What if I’d like counseling but cannot start right away?
If you’re unsure about counseling or ready but waiting to get an appointment confirmed, we invite you to join a Grace Life Care Group. These groups are specifically designed to lay a Biblical foundation for you in a safe environment. It’s an ongoing group that you can enter at any time regardless of what topic we are discussing that week. Many people begin to experience a measure of freedom and healing in these groups. Grace Life Care Groups meet at our central office location in Charlotte, NC on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 – 9:00 pm. Call our main office at 704-522-9024 for details about a Grace Life Care Group.
What if I don’t live near any of the Grace Life offices?
We can help no matter where you live! Grace Life offers online counseling (using Skype, Zoom, etc.) for out-of-area clients who wish to engage with a discipleship counselor on a weekly basis. Our staff has remotely counseled people across America and around the world!
