Counseling for Pastors

Be a Pastor that THRIVES!

Counseling for Pastors can help burnout which is a state of mental and physical exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress.

There are three stages of burnout: Stressed, Overwhelmed, and Crispy. While the process can be stopped at any point, it’s generally in the crispy stage that people begin to have a sense that “something is wrong”.

We provide counseling for Pastors accessible World-Wide Online. Thousands trust our counselors each year because of our 5-Star Personalized Service & Quality Counseling.

The Proof


  • How can I deal with criticism and conflict?
  • Who can I share my family challenges with?
  • What is a normal level of stress versus an unhealthy level?
  • How can I pastor while also struggling with depression?
  • What is burnout and what options forward are there?
  • Am I ready for this next chapter in my church?
  • Is my family ready to support me through this circumstance?
  • How does sexual sin impact my pastoring ability?
  • How can I address financial hardships?
  • Am I missing something?


Bad Theology

In many cases bad theology is, in part, responsible for high levels of burnout and attrition in the ministry. Somewhere along the line we got the message that serving whole heartedly means neglecting the needs God has created our bodies with as well as the command to regularly practice sabbath rest.


Sometimes our priorities are in the ditch of secular hedonism/idolatry where our focus is on our wants, wishes, and what we believe will make us happy. Instead of realizing God has multiple priorities for our life (our spouse, our kids, self-care, enjoying creation, engaging ministry) we get over focused on any one of His priorities for us, to the neglect of the others.


That’s not possible! The question isn’t, what is your “very best”, the real question is “How much time, energy, effort would the Lord have me give to this?” The question is – What is “good enough”? If it’s “good enough” for the King – then believe me, it is indeed Good Enough. Even if you know it could be done better or it’s not good enough for others. Counseling for pastors can help work through these elements.


Boundaries, simply put, are how we use our “YES” and “NO” to manage our life. For reasons discussed above, many of us struggle to know when we should say YES and how to say NO. As a result, we commit ourselves to more than we should, and we allow others to control our lives.

This doesn’t feel good and leads to resentment, but we find it easier than disappointing or upsetting others.

We would rather avoid the conflict and neurotic guilt (false feelings of guilt when we haven’t violated God’s heart) than assert healthy boundaries.


God has given you the job of caring for the most precious resource/asset you have – your body. Without it, you cannot complete the good works God has prepared in advance for you, nor use it to bring glory to and revelation of your God or serve others as His body. You also cannot enjoy the abundant life He has created you for, experiencing all the good gifts and blessings he intends for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who are the counselors?

Our counselors are trained and experienced Christian counselors with at least a Master’s or Doctorate Degree in a mental health-related field (i.e. Master’s in Counseling, Social Work, Marriage and Family Therapy, Mental Health Counseling, etc.) In addition to their training as faith-based counselors, most are state-licensed mental health providers in the states they reside in. All our counselors are trained and supervised through our 2-Year post-graduate residency in Neuroscience Informed Christian Counseling (NICC).

Who will be helping me?

After you sign up, we will match you to an available counselor who fits your needs and preferences. Different counselors have different schedules, pricing, and availability. It’s important to find the right person for your situation. We have found that we are able to provide a successful match the first time most of the time. However, if you start your counseling and feel your therapist is not a good fit, you can seamlessly switch counselors at any time, at no extra cost.

Is right for me?

Is MyCounselor.Online right for me?

  1. Do you recognize a need for something to change in your life or relationship for you to fully THRIVE?
  2. Are you committed to doing what is necessary to THRIVE?
  3. Is your Christian faith important to you?
  4. Is $220 a month too much to invest in your mental health and personal development?

MyCounselor.Online may be right for you if you’re looking to improve the quality of your life. Whenever there is anything that interferes with your joy or prevents you from achieving your goals, we may be able to help. We also have counselors who specialize in specific issues such as stress, anxiety, relationships, parenting, depression, addictions, eating, sleeping, trauma, anger, family conflicts, sexual and gender identity, grief, spirituality, self-esteem, and more.

MyCounselor.Online is not the right solution for you if any of the following is true:

  • You are in an urgent crisis or an emergency situation
  • You were required to undergo therapy by a court order or by any other authority
  • You do not have a device that can connect to the internet or you do not have a reliable internet connection

How much does it cost?

The average cost of counseling through MyCounselor.Online ranges from $220 to $390 per month and it is based on which counselor you choose to work with and how often you need to meet with them. Most clients see their counselor 2-3x a month. If you are facing an intense situation in your life, you may meet more frequently.  You can stop at any time, for any reason.

On a per session basis costs vary depending on the level of experience and expertise of the counselor you work with.

  • Most Experienced – Advanced Practice: $195/per session
  • Most Popular – Certified: $135/per session
  • Most Affordable – Resident: $110/per session

After I sign up, how long until I'm matched with a counselor?

The matching process can take a few hours or a few days, depending on your availability. You will choose a time to meet with a matching specialist and you will choose when you wish to meet with your counselor. Your first meeting with your counselor could be as soon as the same day you meet with your matching specialist depending on the availability of the counselor you choose.

How will I communicate with my counselor?

You will meet with your counselor via secure, HIPAA compliant Zoom video conferencing. If you need to reschedule an appointment you can do so using the scheduling link in your appointment confirmation email or by contacting the receptionist team by phone or email.

Can substitute for traditional in-person counseling?

The professionals who work through MyCounselor.Online are trained and credentialed counselors just like traditional in-person counselors. The only difference is you meet with them from the convenience of your couch.

How long can I use

This depends on your needs and varies a lot from one person to another. Some people feel they get most of the value after just a month or two while they are going through a life crisis, while others prefer to make it part of their ongoing personal development plan. This is completely up to you.

How can I be sure this is an effective form of counseling?

There are many studies that confirm the effectiveness of online counseling for making life changes. A few examples are:

The confidence we have in our approach comes primarily from the feedback and testimonials we receive from our clients. Every day we are excited to hear from more people about the way our team has helped them THRIVE!
