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 Sandy Springs, GA 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?

Everybody has those days when they feel sad, angry, stressed, frustrated or just plain hopeless. And sometimes, these days turns into weeks, months, years of feeling this way. Letting these difficult emotions fester—as well as the challenges we face—proves to have harmful effects on mental health and wellbeing. But many wonder as they struggle, “What can I do about it?”

Every day begins with an act of courage and hope: getting out of bed.”

–Mason Cooley

What Kind of Online Therapy Should I Choose?

You can attend your online counseling session in one of three ways: via phone call, video call, or email/chat. If you choose to work with your therapy via phone call, you’ll agree on a day and time to meet (just as you would if you were meeting with them in person) and then answer your therapist’s call. Similarly, with video counseling, you will agree on a set day and time for therapy and then you’ll jump into the chat room or answer your counselor’s video call.

If you decide that you want a more casual therapy experience, especially to start with or as you transition out of therapy, you can decide to work with your therapist via email or chat. Instead of meeting with your counselor for a strict timeslot, you’ll communicate on a regular but flexible basis. Either way, Thriveworks Atlanta, GA has you covered. We can set you up with an online therapist via phone call, videoconference, or email. Just let us know what your preferences are and we’ll do the rest.

I have personally known Nichola Daley for over 15 years and can honestly say that she is one of the most genuine, intelligent, and compassionate people i have met. As a current behavioral health program director and employee of over 10 years, i can honestly say that Nichola develops a great rapport with every individual she encounters and performs well in problem solving and attending to their needs. Optimism and transparency are a few of her strong holds in which is why I strongly recommend her as a great therapist to consult.
