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 Bastrop, TX 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.

Online Counseling: What Is It? How Does It Work?

As we touched on above, online counseling is a convenient counseling service. It has many similarities with the traditional in-person therapy approach; however, instead of meeting your counselor face-to-face, you meet with them over the phone or in a video conference. It’s as simple as it sounds. And don’t worry—you don’t have to worry if your Thriveworks Bastrop provider is a fully licensed, caring counselor. We have high standards for our counselors and ensure that they have the right licensure, skills, training, and experience to guide and support you in counseling.

If you decide to work with an online counselor at Thriveworks Bastrop, TX, you’ll get to choose between telephone counseling and video counseling. Both can prove valuable, it all comes down to your preferences. If you’d prefer that your online counseling sessions resemble in-person counseling sessions as much as possible, video counseling will be your best bet. However, if you don’t care for the face-to-face interaction you get in in-person counseling, telephone counseling might be the right online counseling service for you! It’s okay to experiment, we’re happy to help you find which option best suits you and your needs.

Why Should I Try Online Therapy? 4 Online Counseling Perks

If you’re contemplating whether you want to go with in-person counseling or online counseling, consider the following 4 online counseling perks, which often lead people to choose the latter option:

  1. It’s oh-so convenient: With online counseling, you don’t have to leave home to attend yet another appointment. You can attend right from your bedroom, living room, kitchen, wherever you need or prefer. This also means that your counseling session will probably feel a little more comfortable than it would if you were at your counselor’s office!
  2. It’s tried and true: One reservation that people have with online counseling is, “Is it as effective as in-person counseling?” The answer is yes. Online counseling is tested and true. It proves effective for many people with different backgrounds and presenting issues.
  3. It’s affordable: On top of the previous two benefits, online counseling is affordable. Recently, most insurance companies started paying for online counseling services. Almost all companies pay for online counseling by video and many are starting to pay for telephone counseling too. Additionally, we offer affordable self-pay options here at Thriveworks Bastrop.
  4. It’s flexible and reliable: Finally, online counseling by phone and video are both flexible and reliable counseling options. You can more likely schedule an appointment quickly, rather than waiting several days or weeks to meet with your counselor for the first time. You also will likely have more scheduling options to choose from. Additionally, online counseling is reliable. You don’t have to worry about having to reschedule due to standstill traffic!

How do these benefits sound to you? If you would like to experience these for yourself, all you have to do is reach out to Thriveworks Bastrop. You can call us at (512) 521-3243. We look forward to hearing from you and for the chance to work with you.

Kris Fredericksen has helped me immensely over the past couple of years. I have progressed in leaps and bounds since I first started attending sessions with her. I have had a traumatic childhood, stage 4 cancer, and was in an abusive relationship with an extreme narcissist. After that relationship, my self-esteem was almost non-existent. Shortly after that relationship I started having sessions with Kris. Since then, I have become more stable in life and very successful in my career. I still see Kris and will continue to as life will continue to have its ups and downs. I know I can rely upon Kris to help me take on and learn from anything that comes my way. Life is a great big learning lesson and sometimes you just need someone to give you the right perspective to help you understand, to cope and to grow. Kris is the highly trained professional that I needed and still need to help me continue on that path.
