It’s Not Always a Show

Spiritual warfare takes many forms. When mental illness or events make us question faith, we may jump to conclusions. The Enemy operates between the lines and is very good at making us doubt reason in subtle ways. NuWell Christian Counseling is ready to help you strengthen your resolve and your faith to achieve victory in Christ.

Know the Signs

Spiritual Warfare is a complex battleground, and Christians should know the signs of mental illness and demonic influence. Many who suffer from mental illness are devoutly religious, and agents of the Devil are secretive. NuWell Christian Counseling can assist Christians in deciding if science or prayer is the path to victory in their spiritual battle.

No matter your struggle there’s always someone here for you.

How Can A Spiritual Warfare Counselor Help Me?

Spiritual warfare is a topic that can be difficult to understand, and even more difficult to navigate on your own. However, with the help of a spiritual warfare counselor, it is possible to overcome spiritual warfare and find peace and healing in your spiritual journey. In this essay, I will discuss how I can overcome spiritual warfare with the guidance of a spiritual warfare counselor.

Firstly, it is important to understand that spiritual warfare is a very real and serious issue that affects many people. The Bible tells us that we are in a spiritual battle, and that we must be equipped to face it. However, it can be difficult to know how to equip ourselves for this battle on our own. This is where a spiritual warfare counselor can be a valuable resource. A spiritual warfare counselor can help us understand the nature of spiritual warfare and provide us with the tools and resources we need to overcome it.

One of the ways a spiritual warfare counselor can help us overcome spiritual warfare is by helping us identify the root cause of our spiritual struggles. Oftentimes, our struggles in the spiritual realm are connected to our past experiences, traumas, or even generational curses. A spiritual warfare counselor can help us identify these underlying issues and provide us with the tools we need to break free from them. By addressing the root cause of our spiritual struggles, we can experience true healing and freedom.

Another way a spiritual warfare counselor can help us overcome spiritual warfare is by helping us develop spiritual disciplines that will strengthen our faith. This might include things like prayer, Bible study, worship, and fasting. A spiritual warfare counselor can help us understand the importance of these disciplines and provide us with guidance on how to implement them in our daily lives. By developing these spiritual disciplines, we can draw closer to God and experience greater peace and strength in the face of spiritual warfare.

In addition, a spiritual warfare counselor can help us develop strategies for protecting ourselves from spiritual attack. This might include things like putting on the full armor of God (as described in Ephesians 6:10-18), learning to recognize the signs of spiritual attack, and seeking the support of other believers. A spiritual warfare counselor can help us understand how to defend ourselves against spiritual attack and provide us with the tools we need to overcome it.

Furthermore, a spiritual warfare counselor can help us find community with other believers who are also facing spiritual warfare. It can be helpful to talk to other people who are going through similar struggles and to learn from their experiences. A spiritual warfare counselor can help us find support groups or other resources that can connect us with other believers who are on the same journey.

Finally, a spiritual warfare counselor can help us understand the power of forgiveness and the importance of letting go of bitterness and resentment. Unforgiveness can be a major barrier to spiritual growth and can even open the door to spiritual attack. A spiritual warfare counselor can help us understand the importance of forgiveness and provide us with tools and resources to help us let go of past hurts and move forward in our spiritual journey.

In conclusion, overcoming spiritual warfare is not an easy journey, but it is possible with the help of a spiritual warfare counselor. A spiritual warfare counselor can help us identify the root cause of our spiritual struggles, develop spiritual disciplines that will strengthen our faith, develop strategies for protecting ourselves from spiritual attack, find community with other believers who are facing similar struggles, and learn the power of forgiveness. By working with a spiritual warfare counselor, we can find the tools and resources we need to overcome spiritual warfare and experience greater peace and freedom in our spiritual journey.

Our Services Include:


Coaching looks at your present functioning along with your future potential in order to help you unlock your giftings, passions, and talents so that you can succeed in being all that God has called you to be. It helps you move beyond your current limitations to set and accomplish God-sized goals for your life.

Anxiety & Depression

Anxiety and depression distort how we feel, think, and handle mundane activities such as sleep, nutrition, and work for extended periods of time. Both are among the most effectively treated mental disorders with routine therapy being one of the most effective treatment options.

Family Conflict

Family conflict is inevitable. Dysfunctional families are the rule, not the exception. A functional family is best described as one that handles their dysfunction with love and grace. Every family experiences conflict. It’s still a challenge to navigate though. Oftentimes an outside perspective creates clarity for the family to find resolution.

Emotional Dysfunction

Experiencing abuse or trauma can create toxic beliefs about ourselves that result in feelings of anger, rejection, worthlessness, low self-esteem, shame, emotional shutdown, and self-hatred. Internalizing these poisonous lies leads to emotional dysphoria and dysfunction where we oftentimes create false identities for ourselves.

Spiritual Abuse

Spiritual abuse is rampant. This kind of abuse must be handled with special care because of how it impacts our identity while creating an unnecessary barrier between us and God. The help of a skillful and trusted guide is essential in healing spiritual wounds and restoring a proper understanding of God, ourselves, and others.

Grief & Trauma

Grief and trauma can develop deep roots in our identity if left unresolved. Whether it’s childhood trauma, loss of a loved one, sexual trauma, or any other form, it needs resolution. Treatment for trauma and grief involves a counseling professional using evidence-based clinical treatments as well as Biblical and pastoral approaches.

Marriage & Relationships

Marriages and relationships are hard work. There are seasons when communication with our significant others feels impossible. Sometimes deeply rooted or toxic problems arise threatening to destroy a relationship we’ve spent years cultivating. Trained marriage counselors give you the safe space and tools you need to overcome these obstacles.

Spiritual Warfare

There is a real spiritual enemy seeking to wreak havoc and destruction in our lives. We suffer under the enemy far more than we need to because we willingly walk in sin or believe the enemy’s lies. A spiritual counselor equips you to recognize the enemy’s attacks while helping you develop a successful counter-attack.


Addictions affect people and their loved ones in many different ways. Not only are there substance addictions, such as alcohol and drugs, but there are also behavioral addictions like sex, pornography, food, video games, social media. Professional counselors guide those suffering from addiction and their loved ones from despair to freedom.
