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 Atlanta, 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.

Atlanta (Buckhead) Counseling: What Is Online Therapy?

Online therapy is a great alternative to traditional therapy options for many people, especially if you haven’t been able to fit therapy into your schedule. Online therapy allows you to achieve meaningful work with your therapist, without having to drive to another appointment after or during work. Instead of meeting them at their office, you’ll meet with them online via telephone, video, or even email:

  1. Phone and video counseling: These two options are similar, in that you will set a specific day, time, and timeframe, to meet with your therapist either on the phone or via video chat. If you still want a face-to-face element, video therapy might be the better of the two options for you!
  2. Email therapy: This third online therapy option is different from phone and video counseling, in that you will not attend a therapy session on a specific day, time, and during a certain time period. Instead, you’ll email or chat back and forth on a more casual basis.

We see that many of our clients enjoy online therapy and are able to make progress with their therapist or counselor via virtual means. If you think that you might find online therapy valuable, let Thriveworks Atlanta, GA (Buckhead) know. We can set you up with a therapist today.

Overall, the experience has been good but my nurse practitioner forgot to refill my medication prescription before Christmas and now I’m out, waiting for everyone to get back from the holidays. I understand mistakes happen, but it super important to not forget to refill patient medications … that is something I don’t think deserves a lot of wiggle room for mistakes because it so fundamental to this profession.
