How Does Online Therapy in Minnesota Work?

Online therapy in Minnesota is very similar to traditional in-person therapy. During both, you talk to a licensed therapist about what you are currently experiencing. The difference between in-person therapy and online therapy is that you meet with your therapist virtually, and have a remote online therapy session.


During an online therapy session, you talk to a therapist through a video chat from your computer or phone. Each online therapy session is 45 minutes long, completely confidential, and secure. Your therapist will work with you to help improve your mental health and provide emotional support, tools, and coping mechanisms to help you in your day-to-day life.
