Online counseling offers a personalized approach to care! Making self-care a priority is now a reality.  You deserve to feel attended to from your first consult to successful completion!
You need a therapist who understands you and cares about the work you are putting in to improving your health and wellness. 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. At Synergy eTherapy , online Counseling (otherwise known as eTherapy/tele-mental health therapy) may be the mode of mental health support you’ve been looking for.

Online medical and mental health services are gaining traction because it is extremely easy, convenient and flexible to fit your needs.

There is not much difference between an in-person session and a telehealth session! Talk therapy, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) can easily be accomplished over a video call.

People who WANT to go to therapy but don’t typically say that it is because other responsibilities can take over their day and it just isn’t a priority! During online therapy, you and your therapist login to a secure website and use video chat to have a counseling session. It’s as easy of a click of a link to receive high-quality mental health care from the comfort of your surroundings! We offer flexible and convenient times that won’t impact your “have to” list of things to accomplish.


Online counseling has many of the same benefits as in person counseling.  Studies have compared online counseling and in person counseling and found that you can get reach similar progress levels from each!  But, wait. There’s more!

Evidence shows that the connection between you and your therapist is THE most important factor in whether or not therapy is helpful. If you are going to invest your time and energy in counseling, you want to work with a therapist who is a good match for you. You need to see someone who you like and trust. Likewise, you need to talk to a therapist who can help with the specific mental health concerns you have.

Some parts of Florida, especially big cities like Miami and Orlando, have more therapists to choose from. But, finding someone who specializes in PTSD or trauma like Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), or someone who can provide couples counseling, etc. in smaller cities in Florida 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.

Being a new mom or new parent 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 Florida 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 Synergy eTherapists who offers therapy sessions to people living in Illinois, Dr. Elizabeth Merrill, trained 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 any unhelpful beliefs 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

ONLINE COUNSELING FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS IN FLORIDAcollege student working with an online psychologist in Illinois

Moving away to college is such a fabulous time in life and can also bring difficulty in transition in a young adult’s life. You might feel excited and overwhelmed as you deal with new social and academic demands.  Everything in your life changes when you go away to college.  If you or someone you know is struggling with the transition to college, please know that there is support specifically for them. Did you know that depression and anxiety are very common in college students? Some college students put on a happy face while feeling anxious or scared inside.  We are here to help reduce the stress and teach healthy ways to cope.
Individual etherapy or online group therapy sessions for college students in Florida can be particularly helpful. Online therapy sessions will allow you to process this new experience.  Furthermore, you’ll 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!  Online therapy sessions take away the difficulty of needing to go off campus. It’s much easier to hop on a video call than get to the counseling center on days when you can’t seem to get yourself even to leave the dorm room.  Online therapy sessions fit perfectly into a college student’s life and schedule!


You may worry so often that it’s hard to pay attention and accomplish your daily to-do list.  At times, your heart races, you get 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.
