The MyCounselor.Online residency has as its aim to be the gold standard in post-graduate faith-based mental health professional development. Applicants to the program are required to have undergraduate studies in theology, practical ministry, or psychology and have completed a graduate (masters) degree in mental health (professional counseling, clinical social work, marriage & family therapy, etc.).
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.
The residency is expected to be completed over a two-year period, though advanced standing may be accepted for comparable training and experience completed. For advanced standing to be accepted, competency must be demonstrated in clinical practice, and approved by the Clinical Director.
During residency MyCounselor.Online residents 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.
