Professional Help You Can Trust
We want to be your trusted resource for Christian counseling
Free Christian Counseling Online is a service of MyCounselor.Online providing free and reduced fee online counseling from trained counselors.
Our counselors practice under the supervision of our clinical supervisors to ensure the counsel you receive is accurate, evidence-based, and trustworthy.
All the FreeChristianCounseling.Online counselors:
- love Jesus and know the Bible,
- are professionally trained as counselors,
- are either provisionally licensed or in graduate programs practicing as counselors in training as they complete their counseling studies, and
- practice under the supervision of experienced licensed counselors.
Choosing a counselor is a big deal. You wouldn’t be looking for one unless you or someone you love is facing some serious difficulties. If you are looking for a counselor who shares your values and can help you be mentally, emotionally, and spiritually healthy in every area of your life -- you have come to the right place.
That’s why I founded MyCounselor back in 2007. To help you have easy access to professional counselors who love Jesus, know the Bible, and who are clinically trained to apply the best practices of mental and relationship health to your situation.
I personally recruit every clinician on our team and oversee their training to ensure your experience is a great one. We genuinely care about our clients. It matters to us that you reach your goals and have a full, joy-filled life. We want you to be happy.
Having worked with thousands of clients, we really understand the struggle. We’ve been in the trenches and faced the ugliest of ugly. We get it.
And we know how to help.
I can’t promise you it will all work out the way you want.
I can promise we will always be real with you. We will help you identify why life is not working for you and what needs to happen for it to improve.
You will receive counseling from licensed professionals utilizing the best evidence-based practices in the field of counseling.
You can overcome the challenges you’re facing and have the abundant life you were created for.
Why not take the first step towards that future now?
Cheering you on!
