    I work for a mental health clinic and sometimes receive calls from potential clients in other countries who are seeking teletherapy services. Many of these countries don't have articulated laws about teletherapy. By Pennsylvania law, is a therapist licensed in Pennsylvania allowed to administer teletherapy to someone in one of these countries?

    I’m a LBS in Pennsylvania and I work as an outpatient therapist. Can I provide online mental health services?

    Are there any Tennessee distance counseling ethics or laws to go by at this time?

    Paula, I am not sure if the Pennslyvania's licensure law has provisions to allow for clinicians licensed outside the stated of Pennslyvania to practice within PA for a period of time but you can contact the board to inquire about this. Here is their link: https://www.dos.pa.gov/ProfessionalLicensing/BoardsCommissions/SocialWorkersMarriageanFamilyTherapistsandProfessionalCounselors/Pages/default.aspx I would not provide this service without permission from the board.

    I am a licensed LMFT in MA / where I have worked for several years with a couple whose legal residency is in MA They have requested to continue meeting with me via HIPAA compliant on line sessions while they are in PA for an academic semester. Please let me know any guidelines or laws that I must follow.

    As far as I understand, as long as you are practicing within the scope of your practice you can use technology to provide those services. Be aware that the scope of practice for LSWs and LCSWs differ.

    I was wondering what credentials I would need to become an online therapist in Pennsylvania. I am currently a licensed Social Worker & work as a Mental Health Specialist in my school district.
