Online Therapy for Pennsylvania, North Carolina & Colorado
We’re Here for You During COVID-19 & Beyond
Online therapy has made it possible for Lime Tree Counseling to offer our effective counseling services to people in our Ambler and Lower Gwynedd communities as well as providing therapy for residents who live throughout the state of Pennsylvania as well as North Carolina and Colorado. You don’t have to leave home, you don’t have to factor the commute to our office into your therapy time, and you don’t have to settle for whatever therapist is available in your community – even if they’re not a good fit. Instead, you can partner with one of our knowledgeable counselors to receive your therapy sessions in the comfort of your own home. The Lime Tree Counseling team is happy to offer online therapy for Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Colorado residents, so don’t hesitate to reach out if you’re ready to schedule your first online therapy session.

What is Telehealth?
Online counseling, or “telehealth” is a quickly growing area of mental healthcare. We are glad to be able to offer this service to our clients. Online counseling is, for the most part, the same as in person sessions. While conducting sessions online opens our service area up dramatically, licensing laws limit online therapy sessions to residents of PA, Colorado and North Carolina.
How does Online Therapy work?
We use a safe, HIPAA-compliant platform, TheraNest, for video online counseling sessions. Your counselor will send you a unique link for each appointment. All you have to do is click to join the session. You are responsible for making sure you are in a private location to ensure confidentiality.
Online sessions are very similar to in person sessions. You still work together with your therapist to set treatment goals, and the approach to therapy is the same. We conduct sessions from the confidential space of our office. Your therapist will wear headphones with a microphone to ensure you can hear each other clearly.
Check out this video to learn more about Online Counseling sessions with TheraNest, including what equipment is required.

Who is not a good fit for Online Counseling?
Online therapy sessions are not a good fit for you if:
- You are having thoughts of hurting yourself or others
- You are in a crisis or emergency situation
- You are court ordered to attend therapy
- You do not have a reliable internet connection
If any of these describe you, in person counseling will better meet your needs.
Common Reasons People Seek Online Therapy Sessions
Our world gets more digital every day. Many people find online therapy sessions very helpful for several reasons, including:
- The therapist they want to see is too far from their home. In order to work the therapist who specializes in their area of need, they choose online counseling.
- People with physical disabilities often find online therapy session easier to attend consistently.
- Often college students who have started in person counseling want to continue working with their therapist when they go to school.
- Parents with young children who struggle to find childcare often find online counseling sessions helpful. They can see their therapist when the children are sleeping.
- Sometimes, online sessions are easier for people to work into their schedules.
