MyDevice by MyCounselor.Online
MyDevice video counseling sessions bring the professional to you on the device and in the location of your choosing!
Video Sessions are easy, convenient, and specialized to your needs.
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 and convenient to connect with a Christian counselor who specializes in the area of help you are looking for. There are counselors that work almost exclusively with clients facing the same challenges as you. That means instead of working with a few people a year, they spend hundreds of hours every year honing their skills solving the difficult challenges you face. That means you get more experience working for you than you would working with someone local who does a little bit of everything.
Since you can access counselors from all over the country, chances are there is one available to meet at a time that works for your schedule.
