Therapy can help you manage the symptoms of mental health conditions like anxiety, depression, or obsessive-compulsive disorder and work on healthy coping skills like anger management. If you’re interested in working with a therapist, barriers to care can make it challenging to find in-person treatment, but an online therapy platform like BetterHelp can make access to mental health care more accessible and convenient.

With BetterHelp, you can work with a licensed therapist virtually from the comfort of your home. Therapy can help you learn to navigate many of life’s challenges as well as the symptoms of mental health conditions like generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, or panic disorder or if you have a dual diagnosis. There are no psychiatrists or nurse practitioners on the platform at this time, so BetterHelp providers cannot prescribe medications, but the social workers, psychologists, and other providers on the platform have extensive experience with many treatment modalities, like motivational interviewing and art therapy.

If you’re looking for an online therapist, ND has many options. The providers on the list below are licensed to provide online treatment across the state. Many clients have left reviews about their experiences with these providers, so you can learn more about the benefits of online therapy and choose a provider that interests you.

I believe that my life experiences and professional training has uniquely equipped me to be your therapist. When I was a sophomore in high school in 1970, I volunteered with a telephone crisis intervention service. This piqued my interest in learning about professional counseling and the field of social work. I earned my bachelor's degree in 1977 and Masters of Social Work degree in 1986. In 1989 I was licensed as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I've worked in the profession since. With a wide variety of clientele and problems. Yes. This means I’m OLD; but well-experienced in a verity of treatment modalities and life situations. I don’t give up on people and their problems. If one treatment modality (Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Therapy (RET), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT), Motivational Interviewing, Narrative Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Trauma-Focused Therapy, etc.) doesn’t work then WE TRY ANOUTHER WAY.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some commonly asked questions can be found below.

How much does a therapist cost?

Mental health professionals can differ in price. Forbes found that the average cost of in-person therapy in the US is around $100 to $200 per hour. Pricing can also vary based on your location. 

BetterHelp offers payment plans of $60 to $90 per session, charged monthly in a lump sum. You can also take advantage of this pricing on one of BetterHelp's sister platforms, like ReGain for couples or TeenCounseling for teens aged 13 to 19.

Many therapists may be upfront about their pricing and whether or not they take health insurance from the beginning. Additionally, some in your area may offer a sliding scale plan to allow those with lower incomes to pay less for therapy. However, services online can often save individuals a few hundred dollars per month.

How do I know if I should get a therapist?

Mental health services and mental health providers may help you navigate various concerns. You do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy; You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general advice. A counselor may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Mental health issues don't always present as a crisis. Many professionals provide talk therapy and support for life transitions, skills learning, relationship problems, or life coaching. Online therapy sessions in North Dakota can allow clients seeking therapy to experience professional help through video, phone, or live chat sessions without commuting to an office.

Does insurance cover therapy?

Different counseling services can vary in cost. Therapists must apply to accept insurance through insurance companies, which may take time and money, so not every therapist offers services through insurance. If you cannot find a therapist that accepts your plan, BetterHelp may be cheaper than visiting an in-person therapist.

Is online therapy safe?

Online therapy through BetterHelp and its sister platforms is safe. Therapists are licensed, experienced, and vetted before being contracted with the platform. If you experience any concerns with your therapist, you change your counselor through the platform or app at any time.
