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 Bend, OR 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?

Sitting in rush hour traffic on the way home, you can’t help thinking about the busy week you still have ahead. Workdays jam-packed with meetings and presentations, daily soccer practice, grocery shopping, and the dog’s appointment with the groomer. Oh, and of course dinner with your in-laws on Saturday, where you’ll spend an hour defending your decision to keep coffee mugs by the coffee maker.

With an agenda like this, it’s no wonder you’ve had a hard time keeping up with regular counseling sessions. Your therapist’s office is on the other side of town and there’s no way you’d make it to an appointment without using the last of your PTO.

When spare time is hard to come by, it’s easy to let your mental health take a back seat. So how can you fit in time with a therapist when you don’t seem to have a second to spare?

Online counseling makes it easy to connect with a therapist without the commute to and from an office. Therapy sessions can be held by phone or video chat, taking the hassle out of battling traffic or a lengthy commute.

Thriveworks in Bend, OR can connect you with an online therapist today. Book online or call our scheduling team to see what options are available throughout the week and on weekends — you may even be able to speak to a licensed mental health professional within 24 to 48 hours of reaching out.

What Types of Therapy Does Thriveworks Offer Online?

With online counseling, you can expect to receive the same level of care that you would from in-person therapy. Almost any type of traditional therapy can be conducted online with the same results and personal progress.

Some types of therapy, like couples counseling or family therapy, can actually be more effectively scheduled using online means. Coordinating the schedules of more than one busy person can be difficult, and online sessions can make that hurdle easier to jump.

  • Life coaching and career counseling
  • Family and marriage counseling
  • Couples therapy
  • Child therapy
  • Anxiety and depression therapy

Could I Benefit From Online Therapy?

Many people decide to pursue online therapy because it’s easier to fit phone calls or video chats into their day, rather than commuting to an office for face-to-face therapy. But online counseling is a great therapy option for reasons other than mere convenience.

Online counseling is significantly more accessible than in-person therapy. People with disabilities may experience difficulty attending traditional therapy sessions, limiting their access to comprehensive mental health care. Online therapy gives disabled individuals full access to mental health services without the limitations of travel or inadequate accommodations.

Easing into treatment via online counseling can also make the idea of therapy less daunting. To individuals with issues like social anxiety, in-person therapy may seem intimidating or frightening. These people are more likely to seek treatment if they can do so from a comfortable environment.

Lack of transportation can also put a kink in your plans when you have a therapy session to attend. Unexpected car troubles or unreliable public transportation can make you late to appointments, or cause you to miss them altogether. Online therapy takes all of the guesswork out of your travel and guarantees your appointments will always start on time.

You can decide whether you’d like to pursue online counseling by phone or video chat. Phone calls can be beneficial if you find yourself without camera access or without video capabilities. Video chats more closely mimic the experience of face-to-face therapy and are great for clients who prefer this intimate connection.

The convenience and accessibility of online counseling make it easy to get the care you need. Connect with the online therapists at Thriveworks in Bend, OR today and you can begin working toward better mental health from anywhere.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
