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 Appleton, WI 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?

Modern life can be incredibly hectic. Between work, school, parenting, managing a house, and maintaining a social life, it can be tough to take any time for ourselves. All of these moving parts can cause a great deal of stress while making it difficult to reach out for help when we need it.

Many of us avoid telling others about our problems. You might not want to burden your friends and family members with the weight of your issues. Plus, they likely don’t have the expertise to actually help. However, taking the time to work through your problems can have a huge impact on your state of mind.

Online counseling or therapy is an effective alternative to traditional, face-to-face mental health services. In the traditional setting, you’d meet with a mental health professional at their office. Online appointments let you talk to a licensed mental health professional from your bedroom, office, kitchen, or wherever you’re most comfortable.

To work with one of our online therapists or counselors, call our office today at Thriveworks Counseling in Appleton, WI. One of our scheduling specialists will be happy to help you set up your first appointment.

What Kind of Therapy Can I Receive Online?

Therapy generally involves a guided conversation between a mental health provider and a client. Because of this, therapy and counseling translate well to an online environment. At Thriveworks, you’ll receive the same standard of care online that you’d get from our traditional therapy services.

Most types of therapy and counseling are offered virtually, including:

  • Depression and mood disorder therapy
  • Anxiety and panic disorder therapy
  • Marriage counseling and couples therapy
  • Child and family therapy
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) therapy
  • Divorce counseling
  • Adolescent and teen therapy
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Stress management counseling
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) counseling

Online therapy lets you address your mental health issues with a licensed counselor or therapist without having to leave your home. If that sounds appealing, call our office today at Thriveworks Counseling in Appleton, to schedule your first appointment.

Online Therapy: Benefits to Expect

There are a lot of benefits to working with a therapist or counselor online, including:

  • Increased convenience: Finding time for a session is much easier when you don’t have to worry about driving to a provider’s office. You can meet with a therapist or counselor during your lunch break at work, in the evening, or on the weekend.
  • Added comfort: Some people want to talk to a mental health professional but they’re nervous about the process. Choosing your own space for each session can help you be more comfortable and open up to your provider more easily.
  • More options: You have two main options for virtual therapy — talking to a provider using phone calls or video sessions. Using the phone can be a great option for someone who’s nervous about speaking to a mental health professional in person. Some people prefer the face-to-face interaction of a video chat. Either option can be great depending on your comfort level and previous experience with mental health care.
  • Added simplicity: Getting started with online therapy or counseling is very simple. If you choose to work with a counselor or therapist over the phone, you’ll receive a phone call when it’s time for your session to begin. If you want to speak to a provider over a video chat, you’ll receive a link before your appointment. Simply click the link to join the chat when it’s time for your appointment.

Online therapy or counseling can be a convenient and effective option for anyone who wants to talk to a mental health professional. If you’d like to work with one of our online therapists or counselors, call our office today at Thriveworks Counseling in Appleton, WI.

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.
