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 Carmel, IN 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?

Will works as an independent contractor, so for him, time is always of the essence. He also considers himself to be a self-starter—he’s had to be. While setting his own schedule and working the hours he wants can be nice, Will also feels a lot of pressure. And as much as he’d like to think otherwise, the stress of working independently has started to wear on him. 

But after talking with his partner, Will is debating whether he could benefit from online therapy or counseling. He’d rather not see a mental health professional in person, and besides, he’s busy. Being able to take a break during the workday to talk to a provider could be nice. Even though Will still feels a little apprehensive, he knows that the stress he feels building up should be dealt with before it gets worse. 

If you can relate to Will’s experience, maybe you’re in a similar situation, wondering whether you could benefit from the convenience offered by online therapy. At Thriveworks in Carmel, IN we believe that anyone, regardless of their background or stage in life, can benefit from talking with a mental health professional. The same holds true for our online therapists and counselors. If you’re interested in the flexibility and effectiveness of online therapy, contact Thriveworks in Carmel, IN to find the online therapist or counselor that fits your needs. 

What Is Online Therapy? 

Online therapy with Thriveworks in Carmel, IN allows for our clients to meet with a provider anywhere that offers them reliable internet access and somewhere private to talk. You might have some reservations about online counseling—but rest assured that our virtual sessions are: 

  • Safe: Our online therapy sessions follow HIPAA guidelines to protect your privacy and information. You can rest assured that Thriveworks values your safety and privacy as much as we do your mental health.

Our online therapists and counselors are trained to assess the condition of your mental health and offer assistance with implementing solutions. Part of that process relies on getting open, candid feedback from you as a client—feedback that helps them create individualized treatment approaches to help you find greater emotional wellbeing. 

What Are the Benefits of Talking to an Online Therapist? 

Online therapy is an appealing choice for those with busy schedules, or who simply want added flexibility and comfort when seeking out mental health services. There’s plenty of reasons to schedule a virtual appointment, especially if you’d like to:

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.
