FAITH-BASED COUNSELING, PERSONALIZED FOR YOU
By combining Biblical wisdom with clinical expertise in mental health, our counselors invite God into the conversation through prayer 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.

WHO ARE THE COUNSELORS?
The thousands of counselors of Faithful Counseling are a group of practicing Christians that provide therapy online.
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.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
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.

HOW MANY SESSIONS CAN I HAVE?
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. Your counselor would try to accommodate your changing needs in a timely manner.

I’ve never felt so heard and seen by a therapist

I really did not want to do virtual therapy. I thought it sounded like just another easy, money-making scheme for someone. I’ve had really crappy experiences with therapists in the past and my current insurance isn’t accepted by anyone. I heard about this app through the Heart of Dating podcast and rolled my eyes every time she talked about it. But eventually I found myself asking, “what was that therapy app she’s always talking about?” and went searching for the ad break in the middle of her podcasts 😂 I just had my first session with Joseph and he just got me. I always feel like I have to over explain to everyone. I feel like people don’t understand me or relate to me. He was so good at guiding me and getting the necessary information out of me that I wouldn’t have been able to express on my own. He was knowledgable and had real-world understanding of what my actual problem was and how to address it. I didn’t feel judged or stupid and the longer our session went, the more comfortable and sure I felt. I’m really happy I went out on a limb to try it.

Worth every penny

Hands down the most affordable and quality care I’ve ever experienced. Less than 1/3 the cost for care that is easily 10x the quality I experienced in traditional therapy locally. The convenience of messaging outside of my weekly session helped me conquer my biggest hurdle with every counselor - that dreaded first session that feels really expensive and unproductive as you get to know each other. When I’m in crisis, I want to get help and learn actionable steps to get me out of my current scenario because I feel out of control. The ability to message allowed my counselor and I to connect and get all of the basics out of the way so that in our first session we brought me tremendous closure on a topic id previously spent years in other counseling services not realizing was a root issue to be addressed. Cannot recommend the services enough.

Not very happy with this

I was very excited when I learned there was an online counseling for Christians. I work long hours and needed to have a counselor that could work with that. First off this is really expensive and they charge you not by week but by month. For one month it was over $200. Second after filling out the tons of surveys they have you fill out my counselor was ok at first. She answered my questions but you could tell they were scripted and nothing that I had not heard before. Then it got interesting. I had a meeting scheduled with her and she canceled due to a family emergency or that’s what she told me. About two weeks later I was held late at work in a meeting and I missed the start of my session. I messaged her apologizing and she proceeded to tell me that her time was important and that this was the second time I had canceled on her and that she had other patients who would really like to have my spot. I told her that no I had not and that she had canceled on me the first time. After almost an entire day she messaged back and said I was right and would I like to reschedule. No apology or anything. I quit the service if this is the kind of service I’m going to get for paying a stupid amount of money then I don’t want it. I will not tell others to use this service or use it myself again. Very disappointed.
