Employment Type

At MyCounselor.Online, we use a 5 stage intensive hiring process for ALL therapists, including no less than 4 hours of interviews with our clinical supervisors.

Most other practices (betterhelp, talkspace, psychology today, mytherapist, regain, local group practices) are “networks” of contractors that practice independently without training or accountability. NONE of the other online practices even do 1 interview. Their whole “hiring” process is just forms that are completed online!

Accountability

At MyCounselor.Online, our therapists are trained, supervised, and held accountable to high standards by the leadership of the practice. Sessions are recorded and reviewed by supervising therapists for quality assurance and training. Counselors are given direct feedback by their supervisors about their therapy, and held accountable for the quality of their work.

At other practices that operate as networks of independently contracted therapists, there is no accountability. Independent contractors operate independently. Their organization does not control how they do therapy. No one really knows what the counselor says or does in session. (*required by the IRS to be treated as independent contractors)

Approach to Therapy

At MyCounselor.Online, all therapists are trained in and held accountable to an approach to therapy that has proven effective, so the experience across all counselors on the team is consistent.

At other practices that operate as networks of independently contracted therapists, there is an inconsistent approach to therapy. Each therapist does therapy their own way without control from the practice, so there is no consistency between therapists. (*required by the IRS to be treated as independent contractors)

Pricing

At MyCounselor.Online, training and hours of experience are tracked by the practice leadership, by categories of therapy provided by the therapist. Rate tiers are set for each counselor by the practice leadership on a category by category basis, as the therapist meets the objective training and experience requirements for that category.

At other practices, counselors set their own rate based on either how many years they have been in practice, or they’re own subjective judgement of their skill level, regardless of how much training or experience (hours of therapy completed) they have with a specific category of therapy.

Location

At MyCounselor.Online, clients can choose to come into a counselor’s office, OR access any therapist on the team, online by video therapy, from anywhere in the world.

At other practices, clients must come into the counselors office.

Variety of Expertise

At MyCounselor.Online, you can access all of our counselors across all of our locations. This offers greater opportunity to connect with the counselor that’s right for you, not just the ones within driving distance.

At other practices, access to expertise is limited to the counselors within driving distance.

Scheduling

At MyCounselor.Online, counseling can be accessed from anywhere with internet, so travel time isn’t necessary. Our therapists are spread out across multiple times zones, so there is a greater range of scheduling flexibility.

At other practices, counselors are in a single time zone in a single physical location. Scheduling must account for travel to and from their location, and work within the practice’s regular business hours in that time zone.

Continuing Education

At MyCounselor.Online, we require and hold our therapists accountable to participate in our internal continuing education program, amounting to a minimum of 100 hours a year.

At other practices, counselors are held to state minimum standards, typically around 30 hours a year if they are compliant. Many are not because there is no accountability.

Guarantee

If after attending your first session you decide online counseling isn’t for you, we’ll give you a full refund – simple as that.

We’re not aware of any other counseling practices that offer a money back guarantee.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the counseling fees?

Fees range from $55 to $195 depending on the level of experience of your counselor. All first-time appointments will be charged a non-refundable one-time $35 assessment and setup fee at the time of scheduling.

Advanced Practice: $165-195/session

Do you offer free counseling?

With the amount of training and experience, our therapists have MyCounselor.Online isn’t free, but it can be affordable. Don’t let cost prohibit you from getting help. There is an affordable road to healing.

We have 4 Fee Tiers to choose from, starting at $55/session. Payment plans are available as low as $50/week. You may qualify for a scholarship from your church or work. We also offer 1 free session of online counseling through our Strong Families Scholarship.

Are you in-network for insurance?

MyCounselor.Online is a Christian counseling center focused on providing the highest quality care possible. As such we are unwilling to enter into any arrangement that might pressure us to compromise quality to increase insurance company profits. Thus, at present, we are not a part of any private insurance in-network panels.

That being said, outpatient psychotherapy is a covered benefit under many insurance plans and we do have a number of clients who receive out-of-network benefits for our services. Some networks, recognizing our excellence in certain specialized areas, have agreed to reimburse our clients at in-network levels even though we are not on their in-network panels. This is solely at the discretion of your insurance provider.

Can you file my insurance?

Yes. We can submit a claim for reimbursement of service fees to your insurance on your behalf for a fee* or you may submit claims to your insurance company directly. We cannot accept consignment for insurance benefits and have no control over how much your policy will cover or how covered claims will be applied based on your deductible. You are responsible for paying fully for your services at the time of your appointment.

*In an effort to hold down costs associated with providing the most effective and helpful professional clinical services possible, MCO outsources our medical billing request to an independent medical biller. The $5 fee for this service is passed along to those requesting this service.

How soon can I get in?

Appointments are available Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Also keep in mind that each counselor’s schedule is different, and availability may vary depending on how busy they are and whether they have any cancellations.

If you need to get in quick and have flexibility with which counselor you see, we may be able to schedule you with a therapist same-day if you contact us before 5 pm CT.

What’s your cancellation policy?

If you fail to give notice of cancellation by 5 p.m. CT the business day before your scheduled appointment, your credit or debit card will be charged for the time you reserved.

A counselor’s time is very perishable. Unlike an item you return at the store that can be resold, once time has passed it is forever gone. Like a hotel room, once the time for cancellation of your appointment reservation has passed the time is yours, whether or not you are able to use it. When we hold an appointment slot for you we turn other people, who like you are looking for help, away. It’s not fair to the people we must turn away or to the counselor if you do not pay for the time held for you, even if the circumstances are beyond your control (they are also beyond the control of your counselor and those denied an appointment).

Canceling or rescheduling your appointment as soon as you become aware you will not be able to make it, 5 pm CT the business day before at the latest, allows us to offer your appointment time to those waiting for an appointment and those in crisis.
In the event of inclement weather or other circumstances that prevent you from making it to our office, you may be able to use your session time over the phone or by video

We apply the cancellation policy without favoritism and with uniformity to all clients to whom it applies.
