MyDevice Online Counseling
With the advances in technology over the last few years telemedicine has launched on to the scene as a convenient way to connect with medical professionals. Free Christian Counseling Online is a part of this medical revolution bringing professional counseling services to you via online video sessions.
We utilize an encrypted video connection software, Zoom, used by many other medical facilities to deliver services in a safe and secure environment.
Zoom has applications for:
- Windows & Mac Computers
- Apple & Android Tablets
- Mobile Phones
You can download the Zoom app on the device of your choosing and connect with your counselor at the location of your choosing.
Visit https://mycounselor.zoom.us/download to download the application. You can also follow the link you find in your appointment confirmation email.
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 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.
There are NO FEES what so ever for your first session.
After your free counseling session, if you choose to continue counseling, session fees are just $45.
*A $45 refundable deposit is required to schedule your free sessions.
YES! – Your first session with Free Christian Counseling Online is absolutely free, with no obligation to pay for any sessions.
You will be required to put a $45 deposit on account when you schedule your 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 $45 cancellation fee.
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.
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.
In order to provide free and greatly reduced fee counseling, we must follow a strict cancellation policy.
Counseling appointments scheduled, following your free session, 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 $45. 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.
