Online Therapy in Minnesota

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.

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.


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.

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.


One of the most important factors in therapy outcomes is good rapport with your therapist. You are investing time and effort into improving your mental wellness, and you’ll want to work with someone that is a great fit for you, someone you trust, a therapist that has the expertise to help you manage moods, increase coping and get you on your way to wellness.

Larger Minnesota cities have a lot of options for therapists that specialize in a specific issue. Minneapolis or St. Paul typically have an abundance of therapists to choose from.  However, smaller and rural cities may not have many therapists to choose from, and they may not be specialized in the area you need like maternal mental health, substance abuse, trauma, couples counseling, or child/adolescent therapy. 

This is exactly why online counseling can be a huge benefit to you or a loved one.  Online counseling really opens up your options so you can choose from a variety of therapists that may be a good fit for you, as well as someone who specializes in working with clients with your specific issue.

Whether your are a busy couple in two separate places in Minnesota and finding a time to go for marriage 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.


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.


If you’re like most people considering online therapy, the question you’re really wanting to ask is, “Does online counseling really
work the same as in person therapy?” It’s normal to be unsure of new things, so if you haven’t participated in online mental health services before, you really do want to do your research before starting. With Synergy eTherapy, you will get personalized care and direct access to your clinician.

The simple answer is that yes, online counseling (also called etherapy or Telehealth) does work.  In fact, research has shown that online therapy can be just as effective in treating many mental health concerns as in person therapy.

Talking with a therapist can help you to talk about your feelings and how to express them in a healthy way.  This will help you feel accepted and understood. It will also help you with coping skills and facing fears. While seeing a therapist you can learn new skills like calm breathing and mindfulness so that you can lower your stress and face your fears.  Finally, you will have an opportunity to work on solving problems that you might be facing both at school and at home.


You knew college was going to be exciting and stressful, but you didn’t expect to feel like you have; withdrawn, anxious, your mind spinning, fear and panic. Going to college is a huge transition in your life.  Your world is so new. Leaving home and moving away from your family and friends can feel daunting.  Because of this, you may experience increased stress, anxiety or even depression and your typical coping skills no longer work.  

Being able to access  online counseling as a college student is extremely supportive.  It’s hard to make it to your on campus counseling center in between classes. With Synergy eTherapy, you get direct access to your therapist and can text anytime you need to set up a session.  You will also not have to worry about your confidentiality and walking into a counseling center or waiting at a counseling center to be seen. Online therapy provides students more access to the support they need while decreasing the tension that college can be bring on.

Anxiety disorders are really frustrating, but very treatable.  After several months of counseling for anxiety you will be able to reduce or eliminate symptoms.  Your Synergy eTherapist is highly skilled in treating anxiety disorders by using a holistic approach of evidence based practices like Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy.  Online therapy can encourage you to set personal goals and move forward in your life without the feeling of panic and doom.
