Working with provisionally licensed professionals and counselors in training gives you access to clinically trained counselors under the direction of experienced supervisors at a price friendly to your budget.

MyDevice Counseling

MyDevice video counseling sessions bring the professional to you on the device and in the location of your choosing!

Many find it difficult to connect with a helping professional. Sometimes it’s due to schedule. For others there’s just not a professional who specializes in the help you are looking for available without hours of driving.

Video counseling online makes it easy to connect with a Christian counselor who specializes in the area of help you are looking for.

At Free Christian Counseling Online we want technology to help you, not get in the way. We’ll make sure all the kinks are worked out and you know exactly how to join your counseling session so you can focus on feeling better.

Common Questions

When can I see a counselor?

The short answer, Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-9 p.m. The more accurate answer is, it depends on which counselor you are going to work with. Each counselor’s schedule is different and availability in their schedule depends on how busy they are and if they have any cancellations. We try hard to get you in the same week or next week after you request an appointment.

We maintain a cancellation waiting list that you can join to take advantage of any openings that might occur before your next scheduled appointment.

Which counselor will I work with?

Which counselor you work with will be determined by a) What issues you are facing,  b) How your schedule fits with counselor’s availability, c) Your preferences.

What are the counseling fees?

There are NO FEES what so ever for your first 3 sessions.

After your 3 free counseling sessions, if you choose to continue counseling, session fees are just $35.

*A $35 refundable deposit is required to schedule your free sessions.

*Sessions following your free sessions are paid for in advance at the time you schedule your appointment and are non-refundable. Should you be unable to attend your scheduled session, so long as you notify us by 5 pm the business day prior, you may reschedule your appointment. These policies are necessary for us to be able to offer free and greatly reduced fee counseling.

 

Is it really FREE counseling?

YES! – Your first 3 sessions with Free Christian Counseling Online are absolutely free, with no obligation to pay for any sessions.

You will be required to put a $35 deposit on account when you schedule your first free session. So long as you attend the sessions you schedule the deposit is completely refundable. If you fail to cancel or reschedule a session by 5 p.m. the business day before your scheduled session your deposit will be applied towards a $35 cancellation fee and you will forfeit any remaining free sessions. 

 

Can I use my insurance for sessions?

Free Christian Counseling Online is not in-network for any insurance providers and most insurance companies do not reimburse or provide coverage for provisionally licensed therapist or counselors in training.

You should check with your insurance to confirm, but it is unlikely that your coverage will provide benefits for our services.

For professional counseling services that may be covered by insurance you can visit MyCounselor.Online.

 

How soon can I get in?

Appointments are available Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Also keep in mind that each counselor’s schedule is different, and availability may vary depending on how busy they are and whether they have any cancellations.

We maintain a cancellation / waiting list for those who would like to get in to see a counselor sooner than the earliest opening at the time of their scheduling.

What’s your cancellation policy?

In order to provide free and greatly reduced fee counseling we must follow a strict cancellation policy.

Counseling appointments scheduled, following your free sessions, are paid for in advance and are non-refundable.

You may reschedule appointments if you request to reschedule no later than 5 p.m. the business day before your scheduled appointment.

If you fail to reschedule by 5 p.m. the business day before your scheduled appointment you will be charged a cancellation fee of $35. You will also forfeit any remaining free sessions.

We apply the cancellation policy without favoritism and with uniformity to all clients to whom it applies.
