A Deeper Faith Through Christian Counseling for Spiritual Development
As humans, we are all created in God’s image, which means we’re made to glorify Him and live out His purpose for our lives. Part of this means taking care of our spiritual needs, which is just as important as physical self-care. In the same way that good nutrition and exercise are necessary physically, spiritual disciplines are needed for soul growth.
If you’re feeling spiritually dry or stagnant, we have practical suggestions and encouragement to help you strengthen your walk with Christ.
Christian Counseling for Spiritual Development
Spiritual growth is a lifelong process. We will never reach full knowledge of God or ourselves on this earth, which means there is always potential to grow in Christlikeness.
Through Christian counseling for spiritual development, you’ll have a safe place to talk through your growth process. With a biblically grounded and trained counselor, you can process any struggles you’re having spiritually. You can also discuss issues in your relationships with other people.
What Can I Expect in Christian Counseling for Spiritual Development?
We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. – Colossians 1:9-12
What is spiritual development counseling like? It depends on your specific desires and needs as a client. Maybe you are curious about Christianity and want a safe place to ask questions. Perhaps you’ve been a Christian for some time and are struggling with doubts and questions. Maybe you’re going through a battle with sin or suffering, and you need someone to walk alongside you. No matter what you’re looking for, these are some of the goals we have for you in the counseling process:
- Knowing God better and understanding your own identity in Him.
- Finding ways to express your faith and spiritual gifts.
- Having a closer walk with God.
- Implementing spiritual disciplines into your daily routine.
- Getting connected to other believers who can support you in your walk.
- Offering guidance for questions about faith and the Bible.
It’s important to us that your needs are met in counseling. The specific tools and resources we use will depend on your unique situation and the type of growth you are aiming for.

What is Spiritual Wellness?
Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul. – 3 John 2:2
The true definition of spiritual wellness is having a close connection with God. Our lives are constantly changing, whether slowly or quickly, but through it all, the Lord has patience with His children as they struggle with temptations and trials.
We want to help you find healing in areas where it’s needed, strength for the battles you’re facing, and ultimately have a more intimate walk with the Lord. All of those components form a holistic approach to developing spiritual wellness in your life.
In the United States, we’re blessed to have resources available to us for spiritual growth, but it can be hard to sort through them and find what would be most helpful for your individual situation. We are here to help you find a path forward through compassionate, face-to-face listening and guidance.
Spiritual Health: How It Relates to Physical and Mental Health
As we walk with God throughout our lives as Christians, we will continue to become more like Him through the power of His Spirit. Our battle with temptation will not end in this life. Neither will the circumstances of living in a fallen world.
This means that all of us will inevitably face discouragement at times, and possibly physical and mental conditions such as addiction, anxiety, depression, and doubts.
In spiritual development counseling, you can identify and name your struggles and work through them towards biblical solutions, leading to improvement in all areas of your life.
