Starting Online therapy

What is online therapy?

With Thriveworks, Online therapy is an effective alternative to in-person therapy services in which a client can speak to a Thriveworks therapist remotely via online video conferencing. Online sessions are just as effective as in-person treatment, but they can also provide added benefits like reduced travel time, saving money on transportation or childcare, and increased access to care.

How does online therapy work?

Online therapy works much like traditional in-person therapy but takes place through secure video conferencing. Clients can attend Online therapy from any safe place they choose that has access to the internet, whether that be their home or another easily accessible place. Like in-person treatment, a therapist will work with their client to address their concerns, create goals, and establish an effective treatment plan.

What is the best option for online therapy?

There is no best option for online therapy—instead, it’s best to focus on finding a provider that meets your specific needs and with whom you can form a professional connection with.

Is online therapy just as effective?

Yes, online therapy is just as effetive for many clients as in-person sessions.

How long does online therapy last?

Online therapy can last for a few months to years depending on the goals and symptoms of the client. The treatment process will be unique to each client and lend itself to their specific concerns, which means that the time it takes to treat them will always be different. Timing is also up to the client themselves; they are free to stop therapy whenever they please, especially if they feel they have reached their goals and addressed their concerns.

How much does online therapy cost?

Our Thriveworks therapists at Thriveworks in Alpharetta, GA accept most major forms of insurance, which means that many of our clients only pay $0-$50 co-pay per session. However, there are also self-pay options that sit around $200 per session, depending on the service and location, for those who are out-of-network.

How Do Video and Telephone Counseling Work?

Many people worry that the technology used in online counseling will be too confusing or intimidating. But that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Here at Thriveworks Alpharetta, the only technology you need to work with one of our counselors online is the technology you already use on a regular basis: a telephone or a computer! To meet with your counselor virtually, you’ll talk with them on the phone or in a video conference.

In telephone counseling, you’ll answer your therapist’s call at the time of your appointment. In video counseling, you’ll visit the link that your therapist sends you prior to your appointment. Simple, right? Other people worry that online counseling isn’t as effective as in-person counseling. This, too, is false, as research shows that online counseling can prove just as effective as face-to-face counseling if not more effective. Some people find that they’re able to open up more easily when talking to their therapist on the phone or video chat versus in person. This allows them to make progress more easily!

Who Can Benefit from Online Counseling?

Online counseling is a great counseling option for many people, especially those looking for more versatility, flexibility, or convenience. Consider:

  1. Sandy lives in a small town and there aren’t any qualified counselors nearby. Fortunately, she’s able to find a counselor online who fits the criteria she’s looking for, including her specialties and availability.
  2. Tim is sick and tired of having to reschedule his counseling appointment due to unforeseeable events like bad weather and standstill traffic. He decides to move to online counseling instead, which eliminates many of these external factors and ensures he can count on making it to his appointment on time.
  3. Hannah’s schedule is constantly changing. She never knows which days or nights she’ll be serving until that Sunday, which proves a problem when scheduling a counseling appointment. Fortunately, with online counseling she finds greater flexibility and is able to secure mental health services.

If online counseling sounds like the right counseling option for you, reach out to Thriveworks Alpharetta. We will do our best to get you scheduled for an appointment with one of our skilled, caring providers right away.

Should I Try Online Counseling?

This approach to counseling is just as effective and it might be right for you if you’re looking for…
