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 Boise, ID 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?

Imagine: Your parents moved across the country and you catch up with them each week over a video call. You now work from home and conduct all of your meetings using your computer. When you don’t feel well, you go online and schedule an appointment for telemedicine. You even grocery shop from your phone.

With everything being so accessible and right in the palm of our hands, why shouldn’t therapy be just as easy? Well, lucky for you, it is. You can now build a relationship with a trusted counselor from the comfort of your own home or favorite quiet space. Wherever you are, your therapist or counselor can be there too (virtually).

Mental health care shouldn’t be hard to find and it definitely shouldn’t be inaccessible. If you are struggling with some form of mental health issues, it’s essential that you reach out for the help of a licensed professional counselor or therapist. They can help you work through anything from eating disorders and relationship problems to depression and anxiety.

What Is Online Counseling?

Online counseling isn’t that different from traditional in-person therapy. It’s just over the phone or video chat rather than in an office setting like traditional therapy. Here at Thriveworks in Boise, we offer our clients two convenient options to choose from. They are…

  1. Phone Counseling: At the agreed-upon time, your counselor will give you a call. All you have to do is answer.
  2. Video Chat Counseling: Similar to the phone counseling option, you will set an appointment time with your counselor. Prior to your appointment, you will receive a link that will take you to the video chat room. Then you can begin working with your therapist.

Both options are simple and easy. If you are wondering which option might be the right fit for you, you might benefit from trying out both options to see what best fits you and your needs. Just let one of our scheduling specialists know which option you’d like to utilize.

I have been working with Jared for over a year now. When I first started with him, I was apprehensive about going to a new therapist. I was with one before and did not have much success. After my first session, I knew he was the right fit for me. My spouse had already been going for a while, so we were able to compare experiences. One thing we noticed was how Jared adapted his therapy style to each of us. We then started couples therapy with him. He has been a God-send for us in helping us work through our issues. We were able to uncover things about us that made us stronger as a team. I cannot recommend Jared enough. He is truly amazing and a master of his craft.

I met Jared @ an Out-Patient program back in 2012. I was going going threw so much at work & home and was in much need of guidance! While I HATED being there, I knew something needed to change. Somehow through out the years, I had lost my Voice. I no longer could balance what we call LIFE. Being a Wife, Step-mom, Business Woman, the Pilar to my immediate family & finally having my own child, took a toll on me...I could no longer function! While in this program, Jared asked my permission if he could be my Voice. Confused, I said yes. Then he said I could take it back when I was ready. Again confused, I replied...Okay. Each day with him, I grew stronger & stronger. I looked forward to being in the Program. By the end,I knew what he meant, I had my VOICE back! Jared helped me find myself again! Jared is NOT your typical therapist. He does not sit there with a pen + paper asking the obvious questions! He is a real down to earth person who genuinely cares about you & wants you to succeed. I was so HAPPY to find out he ventured out on his own. He has been my LIFE COACH since leaving the program & now my 13 yr old gets the PRIVILEGE to benefit from his wisdom as well! I will follow him (Virtually) where ever he goes!
