What is your go-to approach for online therapy?

I like my sessions to feel a bit like connecting over a cup of coffee, warm and comfortable. I lean towards person-centered therapy as my go-to approach.

What tools do you teach in online therapy?

I work with folks to reduce anxiety, increase coping skills, resolve past hurts, and strive for resiliency.

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

I feel encouraged when clients share moments in which they have chosen to approach situations differently from how they once would have.

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

Ways in which you can support your mental health outside of therapy are informative books, supportive podcasts, and good-for-the-soul volunteer work.

What should someone do to prepare for starting online therapy?

To prepare for your first session, you can begin to think of what you would like to address through therapy.

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.
