Online Mental Health Care in Alaska—Online Counseling, Therapy, and Coaching
Have you ever worked with a counselor before? According to “Barna Trends 2018,” 4 in 10 American adults (42%) have talked to a counselor at some point. In addition, 36% say that they are open to the idea! If you haven’t worked with a counselor before, do you fall into the 36% (or more, in the year 2020) that are open to it?
If the answer is yes, you’ll be glad to know that counseling has never been more comfortable or convenient. While the traditional form of counseling (in-person counseling) is still available, you can also choose to work with a counselor online if you prefer. Online counseling simply means attending your counseling sessions via an online platform, like over the phone or video chat.
Sometimes the people around you won’t understand your journey. They don’t need to, it’s not for them. –Joubert Botha
Here at Thriveworks Counseling in Alaska, those are our two main online counseling options: phone counseling and video counseling. Both prove effective and are great options if you’re considering starting a relationship with an online counselor. The Thriveworks team would be honored to help you—so, if you’d like to schedule an online counseling session, reach out to our office. A scheduling specialist will pair you with the counselor that is best equipped to help you with your specific needs!
What Should I Know About Online Counseling?
As we just explained, online counseling is simple: It’s meeting with your counselor in an online environment instead of in-office. Here at Thriveworks Counseling, we offer both telephone and video counseling. Both of these online counseling options prove beneficial; however, it often comes down to personal preference in choosing which you would like to pursue. Regardless of what you choose, you’ll only need to check the following boxes to find success in online counseling:
- Access to an electronic device (such as a phone or computer)
- Reliable internet access
- A quiet place to talk (preferably)
- Willingness to open up to your counselor
- Dedication to making changes in your life
The first three items on this list are easy, right? Now, we know that the remaining two items might be a tad more difficult. Opening up about personal challenges can be, well, challenging! But doing so empowers you to work through these challenges, with the help of a certified and licensed professional. Also, we know that promising to make changes in your life can be tough, too. But we want you to know that we will help you fulfill this promise to yourself. Counseling isn’t a giant leap forward—it’s a couple steps forward, a step back, and so on. The end result, though, is an improved life. We want to help you get there.
