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 Peter

I enjoy working with both individuals and couples. My goal is to always be able to grow in my abilities to better facilitate healing for those that God puts in my care. I am trained in emotionally-focused therapy for couples (EFT). I am also doing ongoing training in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) to better facilitate healing for individuals.

As I mentioned, my heart for individuals is to see them grow and flourish in who they are created to be. There are times when we get stuck in a rut or caught in a cycle. There is nothing wrong with that, if fact it is normal, but God created us to live life abundantly. I want my clients to find themselves in a place where they can thrive in openness with themselves, other people and all creation.

Sometimes those individuals are teens that just need someone to reach out to and grow with them. Reaching out to families and coming alongside them as they grow their communication is very fulfilling.

When I am counseling couples I cherish supporting lovers as they rediscover the love they once had. When clients come to me they have been experiencing patterns of conflict, aloneness, and rejection. In marriage counseling there are issues of communication, infidelity or even sex and these are all things that would hinder a couple from reaching their most fulfilled life together. So we will strive to get the lovers back to a place of emotional safety and security to be their best selves both in and away from the relationship.

More than just recovering a lost love between couples I do look forward to prepping and building a solid foundation for new couples, especially those that are looking to start their life on firm and Godly foundation.

I look forward to working with you wherever you are at, and walking with you back into an abundant life with God, yourself, and others.


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.

They made the process so simple and our daughter loved the ability to talk to someone on her phone from the comfort of her room.
