Beyond the Betrayal- A therapeutic group for women
This group is one evening per week and runs for 6 weeks. The cost is $50 per evening. To join an upcoming group, please contact us at 865-283-1777.
This group is focused on helping women heal from sexual betrayal, whether from a past or current relationship. Walking through the pain, questions and confusion of sexual betrayal in a marriage can be lonely and overwhelming. During this heartbreaking time it can seem difficult if not impossible to believe the betrayal won’t define you, and that this is only a season of your life. However, I want you to know there is hope in the future and there can be healing. Beyond the Betrayal offers a safe place for women to process their experience, learn new or healthier ways to manage the grief as well as be encouraged by other women walking the journey with you. An important aspect of this group is that it has a maximum of 7 women and stresses the importance of confidentiality. The smallness of the group allows for more privacy but it also gives each person a chance to be heard. In addition, this group is for women that are still married, separated or divorced. The betrayal may be new or maybe time has passed but the wounds are still there. If you are walking this devastating journey and need support, please reach out to us. We will be glad to discuss with you any questions or concerns you may have. ~Suzanne

Inhabiting Wholeness – A Counseling Group for Men Seeking to Heal Habits of Sexual Acting Out
The mission of Inhabiting Wholeness groups at Healing Hearts Counseling can best be summed up in the words of Henri Nouwen: “To offer a space where change can take place.” These groups offer such a space for men who are currently struggling with any range of sexual issues, so that they might find health or, in other words, inhabit wholeness. Toward this end, these groups seek to help men live more congruently with their own values and in the way they live out their sexual lives. These groups also offer a place to encounter other men with similar struggles, to decrease shame, and to increase self awareness and autonomy. Whether you are walking through the shame of sexually acting out through pornography, serial affairs, or other issues that have caused you shame around your sexual expression, we welcome you to a group that will strive to love you where you are, while also challenging you to experience something deeper, richer, and fuller.

Hope in the Wondering & the Wrestling – A group for those wrestling with or alienated from religious beliefs and communities they grew up in and/or were significantly shaped by.
Meets on Wednesdays at 6:30pm starting September 13th. Group will meet for 6 weeks and is $50 per session with an 8 person limit.
Most people who find themselves in an uncertain stage of faith start by asking good (but difficult) questions. These questions sometimes seem to make people around them uneasy, and are often responded to with only “acceptable” answers. Unfortunately, this can lead to one feeling that even asking such questions was wrong to begin with. A complex experience of insecurity can follow. Wrestling with and/or doubting commitments to our deepest held beliefs and values can even leave one feeling marginalized and isolated from friends, family, and faith communities that have been very important to them.
A tension can arise: One of not being able to simply “go back” to previously held beliefs that felt so secure while experiencing significant uncertainty about moving forward — into unknown spiritual, emotional, and relational realities. Such an experience can be painful, scary, confusing…and hopeful. But what does hope look like when that which has felt so solid now feels so unsound? Where and who can I safely process all of this with but not feel like I’m doing something wrong, letting others down, or being foolish?
*Please note: This is a clinical counseling group meant for processing emotions and experiences around these issues.
