Scheduling time for yourself isn’t always easy. Between work, taking care of family, engagements with friends, managing your household, and keeping up with other responsibilities, you may find it hard to find a moment to shower, let alone carve out time to spend on yourself.
Even with a hectic schedule, it’s still important to find time to take care of yourself and your mental health. Stress, major life changes, and mental health issues can build up and eventually take a toll on you. Speaking with a licensed therapist or counselor to address mental health issues can help stabilize your relationships, mood, work-life balance, and overall wellbeing.
Unfortunately, there are many reasons why traditional therapy doesn’t work well for some people, causing them to miss out on the support they need. This is where online therapy or counseling can offer a solution. Online therapy is an alternative to traditional, in-person therapy that provides additional accessibility and convenience. It helps you get the support you need in a more flexible manner.
If you’ve been considering working with a mental health professional but are having a hard time making it happen in person, online therapy with Thriveworks Counseling in Biloxi, MS, can help. You can connect with a licensed mental health professional via phone calls or video chat and begin improving your mental health from anywhere. Call our office today to get started.

What Does Online Therapy or Counseling Involve?
Online therapy or counseling works very much the same as traditional therapy, with the exception of how you connect with your provider. You can choose whether you feel more comfortable speaking with a licensed therapist or counselor over the phone or via video chat.
Many people choose to connect with an online therapist or counselor via video chat, as it closely mimics the experience of face-to-face therapy. Facial expressions, body language, and hand gestures can be important parts of how some people communicate or understand others. Speaking with your licensed counselor via video chat helps provide clearer communication from afar.
In some cases, phone calls may be a better option for your online sessions. For example, many people with social anxiety or phobias are hesitant to pursue therapy or counseling because the idea of meeting new people or visiting new places is unsettling or frightening. Connecting with a therapist over the phone is a great way to ease into treatment and move at your own pace.
Choosing to pursue counseling online removes many constraints that make it difficult to attend in-person therapy. Jam-packed schedules, busy families, transportation issues, disability, and physical or mental illness can all get in the way of attending sessions. Online therapy and counseling make it possible to fit a session in whenever you have a moment, whether it’s on your lunch break or after the fifth bedtime story of the night.
You deserve mental health care that is convenient, accessible, and helpful. Working virtually with a licensed therapist or counselor at Thriveworks Counseling can help you overcome challenges to your mental health, no matter where you are in Biloxi, MS.
