Pricing

We take the mystery out of how much counseling will cost with straightforward monthly memberships. Prices vary from $220-$390 a month depending on the training and experience of the counselor you work with. 

How long you receive counseling will depend on your situation and goals. Some meet their goals in just a few weeks, while others continue with counseling as part of their ongoing personal development plan. It’s completely up to you.

*Most members can reach their goals by meeting with their counselor 1-2x month for 1x–90-minute or 2×45-minute meetings. Some members prefer to meet more frequently to accelerate their progress or because their situation is intense or severe in nature. Your counselor will make a ‘best case’ recommendation for frequency following your assessment meeting. The frequency in which you meet with your counselor is always your choice. 

F.A.Q.

What are the differences between the counselors levels of expertise?

 

  • Advanced Practice Counselors are MyCounselor.Online’s most experienced therapists.  Each counselor has at least 5,000+ hours of clinical experience and has completed advanced clinical training in addition to certification in MyCounelor.Online’s proprietary Neuroscience Informed Christian Counseling (NICC) model.
  • Certified Counselors are skilled, experienced therapists.  These counselors have completed at least 1,200+ hours of clinical work and have completed certification through MyCounselor.Online’s rigorous training program in Neuroscience Informed Christian Counseling (NICC)
  • Resident Counselors have passed MyCounselor.Online’s rigorous screening process ensuring they are the very best therapists in the early stage of their careers.  These counselors are in the process of completing MyCounselor.Online’s advanced, two-year post-graduate residency program, developing them into skilled clinicians.  Like physicians completing a residency, our therapists work under the supervision of our senior clinicians, to ensure clients receive the very best care. Our Resident Counselors are trained in MyCounselor.Online’s proprietary treatment model, Neuroscience Informed Christian Counseling (NICC). This model integrates proven counseling theories, neuroscience, and Biblical theology to help clients achieve their mental health and personal development goals. 
Do you have a pay as you go option?

Yes, you do have the option to purchase counseling units on a pay as you go basis at non-member rates:

  • Advanced Practice – $234/per 45-minute unit
  • Certified – $162/per 45-minute unit
  • Resident – $132/per 45-minute unit

You can discontinue your membership at any time, so most people prefer the savings that come with membership. 

Do you have a sliding scale or free counseling?

While other companies are focused on providing discounted services, MyCounselor.Online is focused on providing the very best counseling available. To ensure a premium experience for our clients we: 

  • Employ all our counselors (we don’t use independent contractors)
  • Hire 2% of applicants 
  • Pay in the top 90 percentile of mental health salaries and benefits
  • Invest over $30,000 into professional development for each new counselor we hire during a two-year post-graduate residency
  • Provide over 400 hours a year of paid continuing education for our counselors

Because of the additional cost involved in providing the very best services, we are not able to offer services for free or on a sliding scale. 

We do have counselors at three different levels of experience, each at a different price point, and a variety of payment options. We are also able to provide some scholarships through our relationship with Partners For Strong Families. Learn more about the Strong Families Scholarship here. 

We also partner with many churches and faith-based organizations who provide scholarships for their people. Learn more about our scholarship partners

How will I pay for my counseling?

During your Matching Meeting you will pay a one (1) time $35 Assessment & Matching fee and your first months membership. Your monthly membership fee payment will charge automatically to the payment form you provide every four (4) weeks as long as you continue as a member.

Can I be reimbursed by my insurance?

MyCounselor.Online is a Christian counseling provider focused on delivering the highest quality care possible. As such we are unwilling to enter into any arrangement that might pressure us to compromise quality to increase insurance company profits. Thus, at present, we are not a part of any private insurance in-network panels.

That being said, outpatient psychotherapy is a covered benefit under many insurance plans and many of our clients do receive out-of-network benefits for our services.  Some networks, recognizing our excellence in certain specialized areas, have agreed to reimburse our clients at in-network levels even though we are not on their in-network panels. This is solely at the discretion of your insurance provider. Services offered through us are generally not covered by Medicare or Medicaid.

While we cannot accept consignment for insurance benefits, we can submit claims for reimbursement of our services to your insurance company on your behalf. There is a $5 fee for each claim submitted for you. It’s also important to understand we have no control over how much your policy will cover, if any, or how covered claims may be applied based on your deductible. 

You may also be able to use an HSA/FSA account benefit for MyCounselor.Online services. 

Coverage and benefits for traditional in-person therapy and therapy services change from one health insurance company to another and from plan to plan, but generally the following rules apply:

  • Faith-based counseling is often not covered. 
  • Often insurance will only pay for brief therapy models aimed at short-term symptom relief to prevent hospitalization and not long term, permanent resolution. 
  • With many health insurance plans, coverage can be partial or very limited.
  • Even if your plan covers all your costs, the co-pay that you would be required to contribute may be higher than the entire cost of MyCounselor.Online.
  • In many cases, before you can get reimbursed by your insurance company, your therapist would have to diagnose you with a mental disorder or issue. This diagnosis would be sent to the insurance company and recorded in your medical file. In some cases the therapist would also have to provide additional clinical information to the insurance company, such as treatment plans, summaries or copies of the entire record.

Please note that MyCounselor.Online offers pricing options which are typically comparable with the co-pays of most insurance plans.

Can I use my FSA or HSA for counseling?

Yes — in many cases you can use Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) or Health Savings Accounts (HSA) for counseling. We recommend that you double check with your HSA/FSA provider to see what information they need to accept MyCounselor.Online counseling; it might be as simple as an itemized receipt or a “super bill,” — which you will receive by email automatically for each meeting with your counselor.

To use your FSA/HSA with us, all you need to do is provide your card details when you meet with your matching specialist, just as you would for a normal credit card. Using HSA or FSA dollars for MyCounselor.Online online counseling is a great way to save money — with these accounts, you’re using pre-taxed income you’ve set aside for health care costs.

What is your Risk-Free Guarantee?

If the first counselor you match with doesn’t feel ‘Right For You’ your Experience Advocate will help match you with a different counselor for another “Right For You” assessment meeting at no additional cost. If neither counselor nor online counseling feels right for you, your Experience Advocate will process a 100% refund. Simple as that.
