Forbes Health named Synergy eTherapy BEST OF 2023 FOR ONLINE CBT THERAPY and one of the BEST ONLINE THERAPY SERVICES OF 2023 by Forbes Health!


Do you live in downtown Minneapolis or St. Paul and find it difficult to beat the rush hour traffic after work to get to appointments? Or maybe you are out in the twin cities’ suburbs like Plymouth, Eagan or Woodbury and it is tough to take time off work to get to therapy?

Minnesota is full of rural areas and small towns that may not have a lot of possibilities for therapists and you would like to be able to pick from highly-skilled therapists that have knowledge in the specific issues that you are dealing with. Even Minnesota college towns like Mankato, St. Cloud or Duluth may not always have the right therapist to fit your needs.

You deserve to engage in excellent counseling services, but finding time to fit in one more appointment can be stressful.  We get it.  Online Counseling (otherwise known as eTherapy/Tele-mental health therapy) at Synergy eTherapy may be the support you’ve been looking for.

Online Counseling Offers Assistance and Support

As online services are gaining in attraction, more and more mental health clinicians are starting to offer their services online.  Tele-mental health, also known as online counseling or etherapy, is the way of the future.  Instead of being in the same room, we use phone and video options to engage in your session.

How Online Therapy Works In Minnesota

Each state has their own laws around what is allowed with telehealth. In Minnesota, a therapist can see any client that is physically located in the entire state.  This means that if you are in St. Paul, MN you need to see a therapist who has a license to practice counseling in Minnesota.  At Synergy eTherapy, we have several Minnesota mental health professionals who have decades of experience and are comfortable providing online therapy to anyone located in Minnesota.

Online Therapy Has Many Benefits

Convenience: Online Counseling Saves You and Your Family Precious Time

Online therapy can save you hours every week. You will be able to avoid the heavy traffic on I-94 between downtown Minneapolis and
St Paul.  A work around might be to take city streets instead of freeways, however, we know that the downtown sections of both Minneapolis and St. Paul can get just as congested as the major roadways.

With online counseling services, you no longer need to take time off work or pull your kids out of school to engage in weekly therapy.  Your appointments will fit into your busy schedule, on your time.

Online Therapy Gives You Options

Establishing a strong connection with your therapist is crucial for positive therapy outcomes. When it comes to improving your mental wellness in Minnesota, finding the right therapist is essential. You deserve someone you can trust, an expert who can help you manage your moods, enhance your coping skills, and guide you toward wellness.

In larger cities like Minneapolis or St. Paul, you have a plethora of therapist options, each specializing in specific areas. However, in smaller rural cities, finding a specialized therapist can be challenging. Issues such as maternal mental health, substance abuse, trauma, couples counseling, or child/adolescent therapy might not be readily available.

That’s where online counseling steps in as a valuable solution. It opens up a world of options for you or your loved one. With online counseling, you can choose from a diverse pool of therapists, ensuring you find the right fit, someone who specializes in addressing your specific concerns. Online counseling in Minnesota truly broadens your horizons and provides tailored support, regardless of your location.

Accessibility: Online Counseling Is Easy


Whether your are a busy couple in two separate places in Minnesota and finding a time to go for couple counseling together nearly impossible, or maybe you are a new mom with a baby at home, not everyone can get to weekly therapy sessions easily. Online counseling can reduce many of these barriers. In addition, clients may be struggling with a physical condition, like chronic pain or illness, and find it hard to leave the house.

Privacy: The Therapy Room Is Your Couch!

Some people still feel shame and stigma with going to therapy. We see this changing, thankfully, but many still do not want to see their friends and neighbors at a busy local clinic. Out goals it to make mental health therapy as common as going to your physician or eye doctor.  However, we know the world isn’t there yet, and there are many reasons others might want to participate in counseling with more anonymity.  Online therapy offers you this confidential option.

With Synergy eTherapy, you can participate exceptional online counseling with a licensed therapist/psychologist from anywhere that is comfortable for you within the state of Minnesota. You can participate in online therapy without risking your confidentiality in a small town or local community.

Does Online Therapy Really Work The Same As In-Person Therapy?

If you’re contemplating online therapy in Minnesota, you might be wondering, “Does online counseling truly compare to in-person therapy?” Embracing something new can be daunting, especially if you haven’t explored online mental health services before. It’s crucial to conduct your research before diving in. At Synergy eTherapy, rest assured you’ll receive personalized care and direct access to your clinician.

The straightforward answer is yes—online counseling (commonly known as etherapy or Telehealth) does indeed work. Extensive research has demonstrated that online therapy can be just as effective in addressing various mental health concerns as traditional in-person therapy. So, if you’re considering this avenue in Minnesota, trust that you can find meaningful support online.

There is a lack of communication, conversation, and intimacy. 

Couple & marriage therapy can teach you both how to gain insight into your behaviors. Then, you can explore the patterns in your relationship.
