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 Anchorage, AK 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?

Between relationship difficulties, career stressors, big moves, and family drama, it’s inevitable — everyone deals with problems in their lives. Sometimes, it’s easy enough to get through these issues on your own. But other times, it can be helpful to seek out the guidance of a licensed mental health professional.

Unfortunately, finding this kind of help isn’t always easy. You may be deterred if you can’t find a therapist within your area and don’t feel like dealing with a long commute. Or maybe there is a counseling center in your area but you don’t have access to reliable transportation. Or perhaps you just feel anxious about meeting with a therapist in person.

Whatever your situation may be, remote therapy services are just a few clicks or a phone call away. If you’re looking for access to high-quality mental health care, you can start online therapy over the phone or by video chat with a Thriveworks counselor or therapist.

Whether you’re dealing with a mental disorder, a relationship conflict, or a tough life transition, our online therapists and counselors in Anchorage, AK can provide you with supportive care that is both affordable and accessible.

What Online Therapy Services Are Offered at Thriveworks?

At Thriveworks, when you seek out the help of an online mental health professional, you get access to the same quality of care that you would in traditional therapy. We provide many of the same types of therapy services online as we do in-person, including:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Depression therapy
  • Anxiety therapy
  • Marriage counseling and couples therapy
  • PTSD counseling
  • Trauma therapy
  • Addiction counseling
  • Eating disorder therapy
  • Anger and stress management
  • Life coaching
  • Career counseling
  • Grief and loss counseling

If you’re looking for care that’s compassionate, convenient, and comprehensive, our scheduling experts are here to match you with a licensed professional that fits your needs. Give us a call at Thriveworks in Anchorage, AK to get started today.

What Are the Benefits of Online Therapy?

Connecting with a mental health professional remotely brings a whole new level of accessibility to therapy in several different ways.

By meeting online, you don’t have to suffer through bad weather or traffic to get the help you need. This level of convenience can be especially helpful for clients with disabilities who may find transportation difficult and time-consuming.

Online therapy also allows you to take care of your mental health from the comfort of your home. By meeting remotely, you can pick the place where you’ll be most comfortable, whether that’s your bedroom, your den, or your home office. This can also be a great option for clients with depression, anxiety, or other conditions who might otherwise miss sessions due to their symptoms.

If you’re apprehensive about working with a therapist or counselor face-to-face, meeting with your provider over the phone can be a good way to ease into your sessions and have the open and honest conversations needed to address your concerns. However, if you feel you can build a stronger connection with your provider via face-to-face interactions, then video sessions might be the better route for you. Whichever you decide, both phone calls and video chats with your provider are HIPAA-compliant, meaning they are as confidential as in-person therapy sessions.

For many people, knowing that there is an alternative to in-person therapy can help them incorporate mental wellness into their life and get the help they need. When you’re ready to get started, our team at Thriveworks in Anchorage, AK is here to answer your questions and help you find the care that’s right for you. Give us a call today to schedule your first appointment with a licensed therapist or counselor.

I am former senior law enforcement officer in western Alaska. I found Behavioral Health Services could absolutely benefit people everywhere. Especially, in remote areas of Alaska. Jenifer Morton has experience and training to assist clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, chemical dependency, PTSD or Trauma related issues just as a few. Alaska needs more professionals with Jennifer Morton’s experience.

Dr Sjofn Weisner is a very kind and caring therapist. She helped me figure out my feelings of being stuck and helped me make decisions that have effectively directed my life in a more positive direction. I've lost weight, started running, I got out of a bad relationship and now am in a good and caring relationship. I'm understanding that i can make better choices in life. This has been thanks to her guidance and genuine understanding and support. She is fully committed to assisting me in achieving my goals with enthusiasm and optimism.

Dr. Sjofn Weisner worked to help me reframe my perspective and access a deeper part of myself that I didn't realize was there. I completed two sessions with Sjofn and was amazed by my results. Sjofn has a very warm, caring, and personable demeanor that radiates through her services. I will definitely continue to see Sjofn for my future sessions.
