Online Therapy in New York

You are busy. This makes finding the time to go to therapy every week very challenging.

New York is a big state with a ton of therapists providing mental health services. Yet the therapist you want to see, the one who “gets you,” is in upstate New York. Maybe, you live in the Bronx and got a referral to a therapist whose office is in Long Island. These challenges make it difficult to go to counseling often. Getting mental health services doesn’t have to be difficult.

You can receive high-quality online mental health counseling services.

Don’t settle for any therapist because their office is convenient. It’s important to see the right mental health professional. You need a therapist who understands you and cares about the work they are doing. Finding high-quality, personalized counseling services is important. But, you also need therapy that fits in your life, not the other way around. We understand. Online Counseling (otherwise known as eTherapy/tele-mental health therapy) at Synergy eTherapy may be the mental health support you’ve been looking for.

Online counseling is an option

Online counseling services are becoming more popular. Therapists are starting to offer online mental health therapy. Telemental health services are also known as online counseling or etherapy. It is the same counseling services that you have had, without the hassle of going to a counseling office. Let’s face it, life gets busy. During online therapy, you and your therapist login to a secure website and use video chat to have a counseling session. Easy!

How it works in your state

One thing people might not know about online therapy is that you have to see a counselor who has a license to practice therapy in the state you live in. For example, if you live in New York (boroughs or upstate) you need to see a therapist who has a New York license. At Synergy eTherapy, we have therapists who have a New York license and are comfortable seeing patients online.



Online therapy will save you time. You don’t have to worry about whether your train is running on time, if you will be late for your session, or if you will miss time working with your therapist. Instead, you can log in to our secure video platform on your phone, computer, or tablet, and have a counseling session where you are comfortable. You can see an online therapist in your home, office, or car! Therapy appointments can fit into your busy day because you only need a few minutes to log in to your computer. No more commutes to an office or waiting in a crowded waiting room!


One of the most important parts of whether therapy “works,” is the relationship between client and therapist. If you are going to invest your time and energy in counseling, you want someone who is a good match for you. You need to see someone who you trust. Likewise, you need to talk to a therapist who can help with the specific mental health concerns you have.

Some parts of the state have lots of therapists that specialize in a specific issue. Larger cities like New York City has a lot of options to choose from. But, finding someone who specializes in trauma or Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), couples counseling, etc. in a smaller city could be difficult. It’s important to find someone that specializes in the specific issue you are having. Additionally, it is important to find a therapist that you connect with.  In a smaller city, you might not be able to reach one or both of those goals.

That’s where online counseling makes all the difference.  Online counseling gives you more options to find a therapist who is a good fit for you.

Not everyone can get to therapy every week. Maybe you are a new parent or have a traveling job. Or maybe you are having psychological symptoms or a medical issue that makes leaving your home hard.

Etherapy is also useful for clients that find leaving the home, social situations, or traveling anxiety-provoking.  Regardless of why in-person therapy is not for you, our online therapists can provide you counseling in the state of New York.

Perhaps you are thinking, “Online therapy sounds pretty cool but, does it work?” Maybe you’ve never considered online counseling before. It makes sense that you would want to do your research before starting online counseling. But, online counseling (also called etherapy or Telehealth) works! Research has shown that online counseling can be just as effective in treating many mental health concerns as in-person counseling. Through video chat technology, you can form a connection with your online therapist.


Being a new mom or new parent, rather it is your first or your fifth child, can be exhausting. At Synergy eTherapy, we have therapists who have trained in maternal mental health. Maternal mental health care meets the psychological needs of a woman before and after she gives birth. The birth of a baby is a big life change. Women may feel overwhelmed by these changes. They may experience depression or anxiety for an extended time.
Also, counseling is helpful for women who have had a hard time getting pregnant, have had a miscarriage, or experienced the loss of a child. Treatment includes talking about the negative thoughts that may come up during pregnancy, childbirth, and parenthood. It also may include grief counseling. This is helpful for those who are coping with infertility, miscarriage, or loss of a child. Synergy eTherapy’s New York counselors can provide this care.
Having access to online counseling as a new parent can be valuable. Etherapy allows clients to meet with a therapist in the comfort of their own home during a time that works with their family’s schedule.

One of our New York Synergy eTherapists, Dr. Elizabeth Merrill, t rained at the VA in Cognitive Processing Therapy. Cognitive Processing Therapy, or CPT, is an evidence-based, short-term treatment that can lessen or even eliminate Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) symptoms by using cognitive behavioral techniques.
During counseling, the therapist educates you about PTSD symptoms. After that, they help you change your faulty belief system or “stuck points” associated with the traumatic event.
The therapist gives you exercises to help you get in touch with your thoughts and emotions. You will be encouraged to write a summary of the trauma. But, in therapy, you will develop cognitive tools that will help you think about the event and overcome the trauma you experienced

Moving away to college is an exciting, but difficult transition in a young adult’s life. They might feel nervous, anxious or even depressed as they deal with new social and academic demands. If you or someone you know is struggling with the transition to college, please know that you/they are not alone. Some college students put on a happy face while feeling anxious or scared inside.
Individual etherapy or online group therapy sessions for college students in New York can help. It will help them learn how to cope with this new and exciting life change in a positive way. College teaches us a lot more about ourselves than we realize. Getting extra support for mental health should be like getting extra support for math!


You may worry so much and this makes it difficult to pay attention and accomplish your daily to-do list.  Maybe you feel shaky and you experience your heart race, sweaty palms, or a dry mouth.  Perhaps, you find yourself feeling anxious during social situations. You fear you might be judged by others.  
Anxiety disorders are very real AND very treatable.  After months of counseling for anxiety, you will be able to reduce or eliminate symptoms.  Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for anxiety focuses on helping you re-think your anxious thoughts and then teaches you to cope with negative feelings.  Therapy will encourage you to set goals and move forward in your life without as much anxiety.
