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.

The Proof

A Note from Greg

I am passionate about helping individuals dealing with anxiety, depression, and substance abuse issues. Through assisting individuals explore their thoughts and emotions I aim to help them gain an understanding of who God created them to be and embrace the freedom available to them through Christ.

I have 16 years of experience working with individuals facing homelessness and addiction. I have worked both one-on-one with individuals seeking sobriety as well as designed and implemented programs that lead to long-term success in recovery. I have often seen individuals who have various mental health issues intertwined with their addiction and find great fulfillment in helping those who feel alone and/or forgotten.

The bulk of my experience has been in the realm of cognitive-behavioral therapy. Not only do I enjoy using these techniques to help individuals pursue recovery, but I also enjoy utilizing them to assist both teams and individuals manage conflicts in their relationships.

Testimonials

Using video chat to talk to my Counselor is brilliant, I was a bit uneasy about this option at first. Now I like being in my surroundings and having the privacy to talk freely.
