We Want To Hire Your Graduate Counseling Students!

MyCounselor.Online partners with universities in our Career Placement Partnership program, to help graduate counseling students find their dream job. We work closely with our Career Placement Partners to streamline the experience of their students by giving them preferred status in our recruiting and interviewing process. Students at partnering schools can begin interviewing for placement during the last semester of their program. If selected they can start employment immediately upon graduation.

Relieving the stress of “will I be able to find a job” is a huge blessing to students and helps boost the schools job placement rate under the Department of Education’s gainful employment regulations.

Frequently Asked Questions

On the Job Training for Counselors

Through our Residency program, new hires are trained in the approaches to treatment that have earned MCO a reputation for providing quality care. The clinical models that inform our faith-based counseling are emotion focused, experiential, psychodynamic, and grounded in attachment theory. Specifically, we train our residents in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT).

Training happens through a combination of methodologies:
• Online Learning University
• Experiential Skills Practicing Groups
• Video review of sessions with experienced supervisors
• Continuing Education reimbursement for approved courses from the EFT and AEDP institutes
• Reimbursement for personal therapy from therapists outside our practice certified in AEDP
• Weekly Team meetings that include, guest didactics from leaders in the field, small group case consult, and facilitated process groups for personal and professional development


Although not required for providing religious-based counseling, MyCounselor.Online believes the education and experience standards for professional licensure are valuable benchmarks for the training of counselors. Thus, our internal certification process is built to meet or exceed the mental health state-licensure requirements in all 50 states. We encourage and facilitate our counselors in pursuit of licensure in the states they physically reside by providing state-licensure supervision(LPC, MFT, LMHC, LCSW, Psychologist) in their benefits package.

Resident Counselor Compensation & Benefits

Starting in practice is an intense season for new therapist. Each new client brings new presenting issues requiring significant learning. We have built our Residency program to set new therapist up for success. We limit the number of direct hours (therapy sessions) new residents see each week to 26. We also require (and pay for) 14hours of development (training and consultation) time each week, for a total weekly time commitment of 40 hours a week on the job. We encourage residents to spend their time outside of work engaging self-care activities, connecting with their friends & family, and serving their local faith communities. Our compensation package includes a guaranteed base salary, commission opportunity, and benefits with a total earning potential of $67k annually.

After completing Residency (typically 2 years), as MCO Certified and Advanced Practice therapists, graduates can expect to earn between $98,000-$146,000 cash compensation annually.
