Online Counseling and Therapy in Alexandria, VA

Online Therapy Counseling in Alexandria, VA—Online Therapists and Counselors

Are you harboring a problem that you haven’t been able to resolve alone? This is the case for many. They encounter a problem that affects their mental health, but they’re too afraid or ashamed to ask for help.

Sadly, too often, the stigma around mental health prevents people who need help from seeking it. But that simply doesn’t make any sense. Whether an illness affects your heart, your arm, or your brain, it’s still an illness, and there shouldn’t be any distinction. We would never tell someone with a broken leg that they should stop wallowing and get it together.”

–Michelle Obama

What Is Online Therapy?

Online therapy counseling is probably exactly what you’re picturing. Instead of coming into our office to work with your counselor, you’ll work with your counselor online! At Thriveworks Alexandria, you’ll get to choose whether you meet with your therapist over the phone or via videoconference. Both options have proven effective, it all comes down to your needs and your preferences. For example, if you enjoy the face-to-face aspect of in-person counseling, you might choose video counseling over phone counseling.

You might be wondering about the history of online therapy. How long has it been around? Is this a revolutionary, new concept? Despite widespread belief, online counseling dates back as far as the 1950s when the first crisis hotline emerged. Later, in the 1970s, the first online self-help group emerged! And today, people enjoy a wide variety of online mental health services, including hotlines, online self-help groups, and one-on-one time via phone counseling or video chat with a licensed counselor.

patient parent

Lolita is a very thoughtful therapist. She also has a good understanding of children as she worked with my son at the ages of 15 & 16. She was an advocate for him, and she was eager to work with him in goal-setting, which my husband and I appreciate very much. We may continue to seek our her assistance in the future should our needs change. Thank you for all of your help.

Can’t thank you enough

★★★★★
I was skeptical at first to open up to a complete stranger and express my problems and thoughts but Gelila made me feel completely comfortable within the first couple of sessions. She is very kind, a good listener, and extremely helpful. I have been talking to her for a couple of months and I feel instantly relieved of stress after our sessions. I can’t thank her enough for helping me out through tough times.

Rebecca Fry is amazing

★★★★★
Rebecca has been my therapist for almost a decade and I can not recommend her enough. She is thoughtful and caring, while also great at challenging and giving direct recommendations on how to deal with issues. She even stayed with me after I moved out of the area and worked to figure out a remote option. She has worked with me through many issues and remained a valuable resource I can rely on.

Rebecca is incredible!

★★★★★
I can't speak highly enough of Rebecca Fry - she is compassionate, patient, attentive, and encouraging. She is celebratory of growth and honest in her feedback without ever being critical or judgmental. For someone who was fearful of entering therapy, she embraced me with warmth and understanding. She has helped me tremendously by equipping me with practical coping mechanisms that are manageable and realistic but challenge unhealthy habits when necessary. On top of her professionalism - Rebecca is so easy to relate to and never makes me feel like I have anything to be ashamed of. She cares deeply for her patients and wants to help them lead healthier lives. She is an absolute treasure and I can't recommend her highly enough!!
