At North Star Therapy we understand the need for convenient counseling. Therapy is a significant investment of time, energy, and money, so we want to eliminate as many barriers to treatment as possible. Telehealth therapy increases access to services for those who have busy schedules. (Or simply don’t like to fight the traffic and would rather have a session from home!) We have mental health counselors dedicated to exclusively offering virtual therapy services to clients located anywhere within state of Florida. We also have therapists who offer both in-person and virtual counseling sessions for those interested in a hybrid format. This is great for those attending in-person therapy, with the option to do virtual when you can’t make it to the office.
Telehealth For All Florida Residents
You don’t have to live in Tampa Bay to see one of our virtual therapists. As long as you are a resident of the state of Florida, you can access treatment with one of our experienced clinicians. Our therapists are trained in telehealth and will be happy to meet with you online or over the phone. Regardless of the format, our therapists provide you with the help you are looking for.

Is The Virtual Counseling Platform Easy to Use?

The platform is very user-friendly, and your therapist with help you with any challenges. You will have access to your patient portal where you can update your information.
Is Telehealth Confidential?
We use a HIPPA compliant program that protects your confidential mental health information. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 is a federal law that outlines national standards which protect sensitive patient health information from being disclosed without the patient’s consent or knowledge. We protect your right to privacy. North Star Therapy provides you with secure sessions where you can feel comfortable and safe to receive the help you need.
