North Country Counseling is offering tele-health therapy to better serve the needs of our clients in rural Minnesota. Teletherapy is the delivery of behavioral health services through electronic communication while the patient is at one site and the qualified provider is at a distant site. Tele-therapy services should be utilized when barriers prevent the client and therapist from meeting in the same place, such as distant, availability of services in client's region, certain mental health disorders, and illnesses. North Country Counseling utilizes Simple Practice for tele-health. This program can be downloaded on a smartphone or personal computer.
What clients need to know about tele-therapy:
You need a private, confidential space free of distractions to "attend" session
You can use your smartphone or a personal computer to "attend" sessions
You need a secure, password protected internet connection
Most tele-health services are covered by your medical insurance.
