Counselor Competency

Counselors with the training, supervision, and experience to know how to help.

MyCounselor.Online has as its aim to be the gold standard in faith-based mental health. Our counselors are required to have undergraduate studies in theology, practical ministry, or psychology and have completed a graduate (master’s) degree in mental health (professional counseling, clinical social work, marriage & family therapy, etc.). 

  • We only hire around 2% of applicants
  • Require at least a Master’s Degree in Mental Health
  • 2-Year Post-Graduate Residency in Neuroscience Informed Christian Counseling® (NICC)
  • 400+ hours of Continuing Education each year

After submitting an application package that includes transcripts, references, and video responses to a structured interview, qualified candidates are invited into a multi-stage interview process. During the process candidates will meet with clinical supervisors, perform a mock therapy session, and participate in a training with the MyCounselor.Online clinical team. If advanced from the final interview with the Director of Clinical Services, candidates are offered a position on the clinical team and matriculated into the MyCounselor.Online residency. 

During residency counselors complete multiple rotations of clinical training and experience with specific populations, including individuals, couples, families, and teens. Specifically, residents are trained in the MyCounselor.Online proprietary model of care: Neuroscience Informed Christian Counseling® (NICC) as applied in practice with various presenting issues.  

The thorough training our counselors receive in a broad array of specialized rotations equips them to address counseling concerns ranging from the common to the complex.

A Note from Emily

Hi! I want to begin by saying that I recognize the courage it takes to pursue counseling. Life can be difficult, and having a safe space to talk and decompress is crucial. I would be honored to walk alongside you as you process and navigate the highs and lows of your life journey.

I enjoy working with people from all walks of life, ages, and at various relationship stages, married or single. I am incredibly passionate about helping those navigating a life transition, cross-cultural transition, trauma, anxiety, and depression. One of the main reasons I pursued a career in counseling was my desire to help people crossover from a state of surviving to one of thriving. I love what happens when counseling is combined with faith, and healing is the result.

I grew up overseas, in a missionary family, and moved to the United States to attend university. This experience has provided me with a unique outlook on life, an enlarged worldview, and the ability to connect with individuals from varying backgrounds and cultures. My time spent in a ministry context has provided me with the ability to work with those in ministry or who are coming out of a difficult ministry context.

I recognize that it can seem as though trauma, conflict, struggles, anxiety, and depression are a part of life and impossible to overcome. I desire to walk alongside you and be a part of your healing and thriving process. It is possible to manage these struggles and have a life of peace and hope. It is possible to move forward from trauma and grief. This is a journey that I am honored to be a part of.

I look forward to walking alongside you and starting the journey.
