Online Counseling in Austin, TX—Counselors, Therapists

Mental health services are growing in prevalence and popularity, as people are asserting control over their lives and reaching out for the support that they need. But sometimes certain challenges get in one’s way of working with the right counselor or therapist—such as a lack of counselors nearby, a long commute time, or a virus that has forced us all to stay home. Fortunately, online counseling is the solution to each of these problems!

Online counseling is a convenient and effective option, especially for those who can’t make it in for an in-person appointment as well as those who would prefer to attend from home. Either way, the online counselors and therapists at Thriveworks Austin, TX are happy to work with you.

How Does Online Therapy Work?

More and more people are foregoing in-person counseling, the traditional counseling approach—and they’re working with a counselor online instead! Online counseling, also known as e-therapy, internet counseling, and virtual therapy, is simply working with your counselor via virtual means. Here at Thriveworks in Austin, TX (West Lake Hills), you get to choose between telephone counseling and video counseling. Here’s a little bit about each option:

  1. Telephone counseling: This is a popular option, as it is perhaps the most flexible form of counseling. In other words, you can quite literally attend your session from anywhere you please. You just have to make sure you have access to your phone! Yes, you can talk with your counselor in a phone counseling session from the comfort of bed.
  2. Video counseling: This is another popular option, as many people value and seek out that face-to-face interaction they would get in in-person counseling. Additionally, video counseling offers flexibility too—you can attend from anywhere you like as long as you have internet connection and are able to hop into your video chat!

“Well, which online counseling service is right for me?” Don’t worry, both telephone and video counseling prove effective. And you’re allowed to switch from one to the other if you find that one isn’t quite working for you! We’re here to help you find the very best fit.

Online counseling is a super valuable service for those who can’t find a counselor with the qualifications or experience they’re looking for; those who aren’t able to come in for an in-person session due to a physical or mental disability; and those who would simply prefer to attend their counseling sessions from the comfort and convenience of home.

Online Counseling Benefits: How Will It Help?

Online counseling brings many benefits to the table, including utmost comfort, convenience, flexibility, reliability, and even affordability. To begin with, online counseling allows you to attend your counseling sessions from home—which means ultimate comfort and convenience. Additionally, online therapy is reliable. You don’t have to worry about running late due to traffic or bad weather, like you might with in-person counseling. This then means you don’t have to worry about being forced to cancel or reschedule your appointment due to these uncontrollable elements.

Additionally, online counseling in West Lake Hills at Thriveworks is affordable. Due to current circumstances, many insurance companies are now paying for online counseling by video. Many are also starting to pay for online counseling by phone as well. Also, we offer affordable self-pay options, too. Do you feel ready to schedule your first online counseling session? Just call us.

margie : can you do the gold on the black? aston

Amazing!!! I am beyond happy with the services provided by Dr. Nunez. She has been so amazing with my children and I am beyond grateful for her and ThriveWorks. I’d recommend her to anyone. She is incredibly talented and listens without judgement. If I could I’d give her a zillion stars for having the most positive, profound impact on our lives!

Linda is amazing saved my life.

I needed someone who was strong, kind, listened and was action oriented who had the experience to deal with the trauma I was struck with when I experienced severe loss of a loved one in 2016. Linda was and is present, intelligent, professional, human, warm and kind and at every session she has offered me practical solutions to face my life and my day to day activities. I highly recommend her. She Is so good it is very hard to get an appointment with her but if you can get one keep it. She is fabulous and will heal your spirit and soul in a safe and loving place. I love her strength more than anything and her optimism that anyone can get to a better place and not be stuck in pain and hopelessness. She is healing my heart and I feel like I have found a person who truly cares. This is a very good place.

I am gonna cry as I write this review... I have been working with Linda M. since I was married to my abusive ex husband and through my single time and my time meeting and marrying my current very wonderful husband. She has pushed me to be the very best person I can be and literally saved my life on several occasions. I'm moving to VA so I can't see Linda anymore and I'm telling you, this is my hardest goodbye. This woman is beyond amazing. She has forced me to take a good hard look at myself and work on everything: anxiety, borderline and PTSD to make me be a better person. You CANNOT go wrong with Linda. It's amazing how much one person and one session can change your life. I've tried therapy before, many times, with no luck until I got dragged to Thriveworks by someone close to me who wanted therapy to fix me! Well it didn't "fix me" it made me a totally new person. A happier, more confident person willing to take on the world. I even wanted Linda to come to my wedding, but knew she couldn't as she is very professional and this is against policy. But I would have had her there in a heart beat!

Lisa McCafferty

Sadly, I was in at vulnerable time and felt taken advantage of with Lisa. She was late for appointments and cut appointments short with no apology. I had been charged for full appointments. If the patient is late or misses, we are charged regardless of the circumstances. Unfortunately, it doesn't go the other way with the therapists. I felt she was defended by Thriveworks for her actions. I can only hope that for the sake of the patients this will change.

Therapist dumped my teen daughter

My teenage daughter with diagnosed social anxiety and anxiety and depression was dropped because your counselor could not meet at times that worked for the patient. No other doctor was recommended. A nice note was written but now I’m empty handed with a serious situation. And you all dumped us.
