Meet With a Sex Therapist in the Comfort of Home or Work!
Online therapy is professional mental health therapy delivered via a confidential video conferencing system to your home or office. This is also called online counseling, etherapy, teletherapy, Skype therapy, telehealth, or telemedicine.
We understand that with current events going on related to Covid-19 it may be difficult or impossible to come for an in person therapy session. We have always offered video counseling and are happy to offer this now more than ever!
Online Therapy is Effective and Convenient
Imagine avoiding the Minneapolis traffic, and the St. Paul clinic waiting room. In Rochester, avoiding the drive altogether and being able to see your therapist in the comfort of your home or office. At Sexual Wellness Institute, we offer online therapy in Minnesota for your convenience!

Video therapy is effective. In fact, the growing body of research into video therapy establishes the effectiveness of video therapy with results at least equal to traditional in-office settings.
Many people wonder if they will still be able to “connect” with their therapist in the same way as an person session. We find that this is absolutely possible and you will likely be surprised how comfortable it feels to meet online. You may even find yourself feeling more relaxed meeting online because you get to be in the comfort of your own home.
Many of our clients prefer the video therapy option. Some clients use video therapy in conjunction with in-office sessions, others use video therapy to replace traditional office visits.
Do I have to do Online Therapy?
No! But, many of our clients prefer the video therapy option. Some clients use video therapy in conjunction with in-office sessions, others use video therapy to replace traditional office visits. Some people are also better candidates for only in person sessions. Discuss this with your therapist to determine the best plan.
A Unique Advantage to Online Counseling Sessions
While our counseling office is physically located in Plymouth, MN, when we provide counseling sessions online we are able to work with anyone located anywhere in the state of Minnesota. Therefore, if you are looking for a specialized sex therapist but are physical located in St. Paul, Moorhead, St. Cloud or anywhere else in the state, you can still contact Sexual Wellness and work with one of our sex therapists.
Can We Do Couples Therapy Online?
Of course! Telehealth can be a great option for couples therapy or marriage counseling in Minnesota.
Video therapy works for all kinds of couples. Partners can be in different locations and “meet” with their therapist via video. In fact, for high-conflict couples, this can be a really great option. This can also be helpful for couples who are physically separated due to work, illness or other issues.
When is Video Online Therapy Helpful?
You are feeling sick and cannot make it into the office but are still well enough to do therapy from the comfort of your home
Your kids are at home with you but you can steal an hour away for your own self-care.
The commute to come to the office stresses you out
You and your spouse are in different locations (both within the state of MN) but would still like a couples session
Your child is at college in Minnesota but is struggling to find good care on campus. We meet with teens right from their dorm room!
How do I set up my online therapy sessions?
Video therapy is easy to set up. We simply send you a link to your therapy session and you can “meet us” by phone, iPad, or computer – it’s that simple! We use a secure HIPAA compliant video conferencing system so you can be sure your session is kept confidential and secure.
You will need:
A comfortable and private place to meet preferably away from other family members
Reliable and fast internet
A tablet, laptop, computer or smartphone that has a camera and microphone
Note: all smart phones and tablets have camera and microphone as well as most laptops If you have ever used a device for FaceTime or Skype then it is good to go for video therapy!
PLEASE NOTE: Due to state regulations, clients must be located in the state of Minnesota during the video therapy session in order for us to meet with you this way. Video therapy is also not appropriate to utilize for emergencies, similar to in person sessions If you are experiencing a mental health emergency we suggest you get to your local ER or call 911.
