A Note From Josh

Christianity is not  just my personal faith, it’s an integrated part of my therapy. I don’t cram my faith down anybody’s throat, but my understanding of how the world works comes from the Bible, which influences every aspect of my counseling. Sometimes we talk about specific Bible passages and pray in session, sometimes we don’t. It really depends on what we are working on and how comfortable my client is with Christian spirituality.

In Bible college, I studied Biblical languages (3 years of Greek, 2 years of Hebrew) because I wanted to deeply understand the Scriptures and how they apply to people’s situations. I believe the word of God applied to the heart by the Holy Spirit has the power to transform lives. Good Christian counseling doesn’t separate the spiritual and the practical, it integrates them.

In this way, Christian counseling is a form of discipleship that is highly focused on specific struggles a person is having. The discipler (i.e. the counselor) is specially trained to come alongside individuals facing significant challenges and use the best practices of the helping professions to guide them through. Throughout the entire process, the counselor is dependent on the leading and empowerment of the Holy Spirit to bring about healing.

Counselor Competency

MyCounselor 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 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 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 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.
