By combining Biblical wisdom with clinical expertise in mental health, our counselors do their best to invite God into the conversation while formulating actionable plans to best address the unique challenges their clients face. Our goal is to holistically improve clients’ well-being, so that they may become mentally, emotionally, and spiritually well.

The 150+ counselors of Faithful Counseling are a group of practicing Christians that are part of the larger network of licensed counselors operating on the Betterhelp platform, sharing the same high standards of clinical experience.
All counselors are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited psychologists (PhD / PsyD), marriage and family therapists (LMFT), clinical social workers (LCSW / LMSW), or licensed professional counselors (LPC). All have a Masters or Doctorate Degree in their field. They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training, and practice. While their experience, expertise, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 2,000 hours of experience.
Additionally, every counselor has self-identified as a practicing Christian, shared their testimony with us prior to joining the platform, and has verified that their beliefs align with our Statement of Faith.

You and your counselor will be given a dedicated virtual "room", which will be your private and secure way of communicating. This room is open 24/7. You can enter it at any time, from any Internet-connected device wherever you are. In this room, you will write about yourself and the things going on in your life, ask questions and discuss the issues that trouble you. Your counselor will log in to the same room, read your messages, and respond with feedback, insights, and guidance. Your counselor will help you understand the circumstances that hold you back as they prepare you to move forward. This ongoing one-on-one dialog is the basis of your work with your counselor. You may also have phone or video based sessions with your counselor, facilitated through this app. Together you will build towards making a positive change in your life and accomplishing your goals.

You are not limited in the number of messages ("sessions") you can have with your counselor. The frequency of your sessions would vary based on your availability, and the interaction between you and your counselor. For example, some people have 3-4 short interactions every week, while others prefer to have one very long and thorough session. You may use the service extensively during time of need and use it sparsely at other times. Your counselor would try to accommodate your changing needs in a timely manner.

Unlike typical in-person therapy which can cost as much as $150 per weekly session, Faithful Counseling offers a more comprehensive full-time counseling service at the rate of $35 to $65 per week of service, billed on a monthly subscription basis with the option to cancel at any point.

I really love this platform it makes all the difference!!

I have been in therapy a few times before and life always gets in the way, after my immediate issues are resolved. I never get to all the things, the. I end up in therapy again and it’s just an ugly cycle that I never come full circle to somewhat mental wellness because I have to work or take care of my kids and I don’t have time or can’t make time for therapy and homework and all the things. This platform is great because I can message my therapist and she will read it and respond and I can do our sessions ANYWHERE! It’s super helpful and I feel like I am really getting the most out of my FaithfulCounseling. I am talking and learning from someone who shares my Christian values and it takes a lot of “extra explanation” out of where I’m coming from. We can just talk about the issues and work on the problems. I really love it and Terri has been great, she is helpful,empathetic and knows her stuff. I’m so grateful I found FaithfulCounseling.

Good app - affordable

The reason why a lot of people go untreated is because of pricing. They made it really affordable and I qualified for financial help. I really thought we wouldn't qualify but I tried anyway and got 40% off.
They did make it a little confusing on the subscription switch. I signed up for 2 week free trial and then turned off the subscription in my iTunes account but it charged me anyway and I had her for another month. Which was fine because it was helpful but it was an unexpected bill.
I used there service for about a month and a half. It really was helpful to have someone check in on me. I stopped there service because I've been doing great but if I should ever need to talk to someone again, I'll be sure to go to them. They're fairly affordable but it's worth it when it comes to you. :)

My counselor was nice enough. I would have liked a little more probing on her part to get me talking. she just lent a listening ear which is ok but I would like advice on how to handle certain situations and use scripture references to help. I've always wanted a Christian counselor but I didn't feel like she really was. No inclusion of the Bible in any of our discussions which is what I asked for and wanted.
So overall good as far as the app goes but I think they need to do more checking with counselors and make sure they're everything the client asks for.

My impression of Faithful Counselor

Faithful Counselor has been a life saver for me. Lynne has been wonderful and a confident. I can text her at any point of any day and tell her how I am doing knowing that I will receive a response. On our time together on the phone, we waste no time before we get right to the point (problem). I was very skeptical about on line therapy but all my fears have gone. It is so much better than face to face bc I can leave Lynne a message as the problem is facing me. In fact it’s 2:00 am right now and I have just unloaded on her through text instead of having to wait till the next session which is usually a week and I have either forgotten or the details are not as fresh. Thank you for having this wonderful ministry! God Bless Faithful Counselor and Lynne!!!
