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 Annapolis, MD 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 you feel stressed, down, or otherwise unhappy, what do you do? Maybe you pour your heart out onto the pages of a journal. Or, perhaps you call up a friend and schedule dinner ASAP. Or, maybe you go for a long, sweaty run. These are all healthy ways to address and manage tough emotions and other challenges in our life. But some people don’t turn to these healthy coping mechanisms. They sweep it under the rug and let their feelings fester, instead.

When it comes to your mental and emotional health, it is vital that you address any problems head-on. Unfortunately, you can’t just hope that your challenges will resolve themselves. You have to find a way to feel your feelings, manage your stress, and address other challenges that come your way. Now, we aren’t saying that this is easy to accomplish. But we are saying it’s important. Fortunately, if you’re in need of a little help, we can offer this help in online (or onsite) counseling at Thriveworks Annapolis, MD Counseling.

Counseling has to do with intuition, with work on oneself, with the quietness of one’s mind, and the openness of one’s heart. –Ram Dass

For some people, addressing and solving their challenges is a piece-of-cake. For others, though, it’s more difficult. There is no shame in needing help, so please, if you are one of these people who could benefit from a counselor’s guidance, don’t hesitate to reach out. Thriveworks Annapolis has online counselors as well as life coaches and psychologists on our team who would love nothing more than to join you on your mental health journey. Call our office today to schedule an online counseling session (by phone or video). We look forward to talking to you.

Who Needs Online Therapy? Do I?

Online counseling can benefit any and every person. Now, some people might “need” it more than others, such as those who are dealing with a mental illness, like:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • PTSD
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Personality Disorder

These are a few of the most common mental illnesses, but there are many others, too. If you are struggling with symptoms of a mental illness, you likely need some form of mental health treatment and online counseling proves to be a great option for most psychiatric illnesses. Now, counseling can help people who aren’t dealing with a mental illness, too. For example, they can help people with the following challenges:

  • Stress, anger, other emotions
  • Relationship problems
  • General discontentment
  • Lack of success, fulfillment
  • Grief and loss
  • Poor communication

If you are dealing with any of the mental illnesses or other mental health problems that we’ve listed, know that Thriveworks Annapolis online counselors can help. We have an experienced team of skilled professionals who truly care about every individual they work with. And they would love to help you, too!

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.
