What is your go-to approach for online therapy?

My go-to approach for helping people in online therapy is eclectic. I find the best benefit in an eclectic approach because I can meet clients where they are. I use different tools based on the needs of my clients and I approach my clients accordingly.

What tools do you teach in online therapy?

I teach the following tools in online therapy:

  • Cognitive challenging
  • Cognitive refocusing
  • Cognitive reframing
  • Exploration of relationship patterns
  • Role-play/behavioral rehearsal
  • Communication skills
  • Structured problem-solving
  • Interpersonal resolutions
  • Mindfulness training

How do you know when a client is making meaningful progress in online therapy?

I know a client is making meaningful progress in online therapy when they are achieving their goals that we collectively agreed upon. This is demonstrated by their actions, demeanor, attitude, and personal assessments.

What can clients do in their personal time to supplement online therapy?

Clients can supplement their time in online therapy with external practices such as journaling, joining group activities, attending helpful seminars, and/or listening to positive podcasts.

What should someone do to prepare for starting online therapy?

To prepare for your first online therapy session, you can write down your main concerns and what you have done in the past to try to alleviate them. Also, have a written list of medications you are taking and for what ailments.

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 speicifc needs and with wom 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 Amarillo, TX 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.

Need more help deciding?

When people list the reasons they won’t or don’t want to seek mental healthcare, the list often looks something like this:

  • They don’t have the time to drive to and from appointments
  • The office hours don’t meet their busy schedule
  • They’re apprehensive about speaking to someone
  • Nearby offices don’t have availability when they need it

The challenges listed above are valid. With a schedule full of work meetings and dentist appointments and book clubs and grocery lists, sometimes there just doesn’t seem to be any more time for one more thing.

But your mental well-being is serious business that deserves your full attention. If you find yourself struggling to make the time to seek professional mental healthcare, then online counseling services may be the appropriate solution for you.

Whether chatting via phone or video, talking to an online therapist offers the same benefits as speaking with a therapist face-to-face: You’ll have one-on-one time to talk to a caring provider who will help you create a unique, long-term care plan that’s tailored to your individual needs.

Your mental healthcare deserves the same attentiveness you give other aspects of your life, from your time at the gym to your time in the office. If you’ve been putting off visiting a therapist because of time constraints or concerns, consider scheduling an online therapy appointment at Thriveworks Counseling in Amarillo, TX. We’re ready to assist you.

Popular Online Therapy Services in Amarillo

Images of therapy in the media often feature pristine offices decorated with books and lounging chaises. But therapy is more than a well-appointed office. In today’s digital world, counseling can mean in-person therapy as well as online therapy.

Online therapy can be broken into two categories: phone calls and video counseling. For phone counseling, your therapist will contact you at your specified appointment time. With video counseling, you’ll receive a link to a HIPAA-compliant chat room. Just click the link when it’s time to join your appointment.

Whether you choose traditional therapy or virtual counseling, the types of services offered are similar.

The most common types of online therapy services include the following:

  • Career counseling and life coaching
  • Trauma therapy and PTSD counseling
  • Loss and grief counseling
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Child therapy and family therapy
  • Anger and stress management
  • Couples therapy and marriage counseling
  • Eating disorder counseling

If you attend therapy sessions, a licensed counselor at Thriveworks in Amarillo, TX will work with you to choose a treatment method that addresses your specific concerns in a professional and caring manner.

Reasons to Try Online Therapy

Our world is increasingly digital. With so many advances in technology, it’s no wonder that our methods of communicating are constantly expanding.

Online counseling provides the benefit of speaking with a trained professional from the warmth of your own home. There’s often a sense of apprehension when meeting a therapist or counselor for the first time. Some of this tension can be alleviated when corresponding via phone calls or video sessions as it allows you to speak to a professional from a place of safety and security.

Additionally, virtual therapy gives you the benefit of time. Instead of making the drive to your local Thriveworks office, you have the option of dialing in or video messaging your responsive provider.

Receiving therapy online also allows you to schedule appointments around your schedule. Because Thriveworks offers both early and late start times, you’ll be able to select a time that works best for your calendar.

If you select to speak with one of the online therapists at Thriveworks Counseling in Amarillo, TX, you’ll receive the same sincere care you would during an in-person meeting.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
