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.

How much does online therapy cost?

Our Thriveworks therapists at Thriveworks in Baton Rouge, LA 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.

Baton Rouge Online Therapy — Access Virtual Counseling in LA

If you’re struggling with a mental health issue like depression or anxiety, you’re not alone. In any given year, it’s estimated that more than a quarter of Americans suffer from a mental disorder. It’s no surprise considering how many stresses we deal with in modern life, including finances, relationships, and career changes. But despite how common these issues are, many people don’t get the help they need because they don’t seek it out in the first place.

Advancements in the internet and streaming video technology have changed the ways we interact with each other and counseling is no different. As many people feel more comfortable obtaining other services online, online therapy has become an increasingly popular option for those who may have simply put it off otherwise. Help is available online if you’ve been struggling with mental health issues. The licensed professionals at Thriveworks Counseling in Baton Rouge, LA are here to help you work towards the life you want with online counseling services. Reach out today to get started.

What Types of Therapy are Offered Online?

Most clients don’t find traditional therapy and virtual therapy to have any significant differences in terms of outcomes. Although you may not be in the same physical space as your licensed counselor, you can receive the same benefits of talk therapy as you would face-to-face.

We offer a wide variety of online therapy services at Thriveworks Counseling, such as:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)

The Benefits of Online Counseling

Video therapy is a preferable option for many clients. It can be easier to build a trusting emotional connection with your therapist when you can make eye contact. This works both ways as it will be easier for them to read your body language and pick up small nuances.

For people who are struggling with anxiety, visiting a counseling center might exacerbate the problem. The idea of visiting someplace new to speak about intensely personal issues can cause some people to have second thoughts. In these cases, online counseling can be incredibly beneficial. You may even find it easier to open up to your therapist when you’re in the comfort of your own home rather than sitting in an office.

If you’ve been considering seeing a licensed therapist, you don’t have to put it off any longer. Licensed mental health professionals are standing by to offer helpful guidance at Thriveworks Counseling in Baton Rouge, LA.

I believe that Stephanie Dean is an amazing individual and counselor. Not only does she care about her consumers, she also cares about other counselors that are new to the way things happen. I noticed that it was easy to speak openly because I feel that she truly empathizes when I express my issues and frustrations. She is always a joy to speak with and to. She will be an amazing asset wherever she goes.
