Tele-Health Therapy

North Country Counseling is offering tele-health therapy to better serve the needs of our clients in rural Minnesota and South Dakota.  Virtual visits allows providers to deliver behavioral health services virtually while the patient is at one site and the qualified provider is at a distant site.  Online therapy services should be utilized when barriers prevent the client and therapist from meeting in the same place, such as distance, availability of services in client's region, certain mental health disorders, societal issues, and certain health conditions.  North Country Counseling utilizes Simple Practice for tele-health.  It is a simple, convenient platform that can be accessed from your computer, tablet or smartphone. Our Tele-health platform can be access in a web browser or through the telehealth app that may be downloaded to your tablet or phone.  We will email you a secure link 48 hours prior to your session.
