Strong Families Scholarship

At MyCounselor.Online, we want to make sure that anyone can get help, regardless of their financial circumstances. That’s why we have formed a strategic relationship with Partners For Strong Families to provide the Strong Families Scholarship to anyone who needs it. If the Strong Families Scholarship is still cost-prohibitive for you to receive help, you may inquire about our interest-free payment plans.

Scholarship Frequently Asked Questions

Who is eligible for the Strong Families Scholarship?

The Strong Families Scholarship is available to anyone who needs it!

What does the Strong Families Scholarship cover?

The Strong Families Scholarship covers 100% of the setup fee and the first session. The next five sessions are then provided at a reduced rate of $55/session. After six sessions, the rate will increase to the counselor’s normal rate of $110/session.

Why is there a startup fee if I have a scholarship?

Although the first session is 100% free, clients do still have to put a fully refundable cancellation deposit on hand that they lose if they don’t show or late cancel the reduced session scheduled. To set up the scholarship, we do collect a $55 deposit during your intake. This will stay on your account and be applied towards your first full-priced session. If you decide not to pursue counseling after attending your first free session, you may contact us to refund your deposit and discontinue services.

How do I get my deposit back?

 You can get your deposit back one of two ways: 1. If you choose not to continue counseling after completing your first free session, you can email to get your deposit back. 2. If you choose to continue counseling after completing your first free session, you can email to request that the deposit be applied to another scheduled session.

Can the Strong Families Scholarship be used for in-office sessions?

This scholarship is only eligible for online sessions. You will be matched with a Resident Counselor based on your therapy needs and clinician availability. If you feel the counselor selected is not the best fit, you can call us at any time to change counselors.

How can I choose which counselor I want to work with?

Under the scholarship program, you are not able to choose which counselor you work with. We assign the counselor based on the kind of counseling you are seeking and counselor availability. You can, however, change the counselor you are working with at any time. So, if it doesn’t feel like a good fit, you can simply call in and request a new counselor.

How long do I have to use my Strong Families Scholarship?

 The Strong Families Scholarship does expire, so all of the discounted sessions must be attended within three months of the first session. All appointments must be used within this time frame, or the discounted rate is forfeited and the client must be seen at the counselor’s full rate.

Can I pair the Strong Families Scholarship with a partner scholarship?

We want to make quality counseling accessible and affordable for our clients. Partner scholarships cannot cover the Strong Families Scholarship reduced session fees. However, clients may use a partner scholarship towards full-priced sessions before participating in or after completing the Strong Families Scholarship.
