Gig Wage Customer Spotlight: Threads of Hope Counseling

In the chaos of our everyday lives, it is often easy to put our mental health at the bottom of our list of priorities. And while public health actions, such as quarantining and social distancing, are still necessary to reduce the spread of COVID-19, there’s no doubt that they can make us feel alone and isolated. With so many external factors that could be affecting our mental health, getting the right tools to attain a healthy mentality has never been more necessary. Threads of Hope Counseling offers a plethora of counseling resources for people of all ages to empower them in their journey through life. From child and adolescent therapy to individual counseling, they ensure that each customer receives a personalized plan of action in order to meet the specific needs of each individual they work with. We got a chance to interview Jenny Beall, clinical director and founder of Threads of Hope Counseling, about how their company helps people reach their true potential.

A Little About You:

GW: introduce yourself and your business.

JB: I’m Jenny Beall, the clinical director and founder of Threads of Hope Counseling. We are a small, private mental health practice providing a variety of counseling services for individuals, kids, teens, and families in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

GW: What is your business’s mission?

JB: The mission of Threads of Hope is to show Christ’s love in action through offering quality, compassionate Christian counseling to individuals and families of all ages and backgrounds who are hurting and desire to grow into their full potential.

GW: How did you decide to start your business?

JB: There has always been a need for quality compassionate counseling, but I felt driven to open a small practice where clients would feel genuinely cared for and counselors would be supported and developed as well. We maintain a small, family feel so that no one is just a number, and we strive to encourage not only clients but our community and wonderful professional counselors.

GW: What key factors have led to your success?

JB: We have been successful due to our focus on exceptional client care. We strive to pair individuals and families not simply based on the next available appointments, but by truly considering their preferences, counselor specialties, and personalities that fit best.

We also deeply value our team and emphasize professional development, supportive supervision, and personal self-care and wellness for each counselor.

GW: What advice would you give businesses that employ contractors?

JB: Treat them with respect and compassion equal to what you provide your customers.

GW: What will your business look like in a post-COVID-19 world?

JB: We offered telehealth before, but now more clients are aware and open to the option.

Your Thoughts on Us:

GW: What problem(s) were you trying to solve with our product?

JB: I wanted to offer my team the convenience of direct deposit without breaking the bank.

GW: How does our product service stand out from other options?

JB: Gig Wage was easy to enroll in and has been simple to make payments with.

GW: What made you happiest about working with our company? What is your biggest success story? Any other information you would like to share?


JB: I love being able to quickly pay my team and even reimburse them through my phone. It is way easier than writing a check.

It can be difficult at times to navigate the world of counseling. With the abundance of services and options, the decision to select a particular counseling service can be overwhelming and daunting. Thankfully, Threads of Hope offers a stress-free solution for those seeking help and self-improvement where you can prioritize your mental health knowing that you are in the right hands.
