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 Cedar Rapids, IA 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?

Have you been struggling with anxiety, depression, or another mental health disorder? When our mental health is suffering, a lot could happen. We could lose our motivation for our hobbies and passions. We may avoid seeing our loved ones. We could even lose all semblance of who we once were.

Life is too short to let mental health conditions get in the way of living a happy, healthy life. If you’re struggling with a mental health issue, consider seeing a licensed professional. The counselors and therapists at Thriveworks in Cedar Rapids, IA offer mental health services for a variety of struggles, from eating disorders and self-identity issues to trauma and anxiety.

For those with busy schedules, it can sometimes seem like an impossibility to try and squeeze counseling appointments into an already packed calendar. At Thriveworks, we understand that. In addition to our traditional, face-to-face therapy sessions, we also have online counseling options available so you can take advantage of mental health services without the commute.

If you’re worried about taking the next step, you’re not alone. It can feel scary to admit you might have a problem but doing so is often the first step to feeling better. Millions of people have benefitted from seeing licensed therapists, including celebrities like John Hamm, Kerry Washington, Lena Dunham, and John Green.

When you’re ready to prioritize your mental health, licensed mental health professionals are standing by at Thriveworks in Cedar Rapids, IA.

Susan is a compassionate, inspirational, and insightfull therapist. She helped me through the toughest moments of my life and taught me techniques to enjoy living, rather than just scraping by. It seems like a lot of therapists are leaving this location recently. Susan is the best, my quality of life has dramatically improved with her guidance. I strongly recommend her to anyone in need.

I work with Susan, who is kind, understanding, and easy to talk to. She's helping me learn techniques to manage my anxiety, and for the first time in my adult life, I feel like I have a sense of control and can handle any curveballs thrown my way. I've only just started seeing her recently but have already seen a huge improvement in my mood and day-to-day life. Susan is awesome to work with and I highly recommend her!
