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 Cleveland, OH 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.

Do I Need Online Counseling? What Problems Can Be Addressed in Online Counseling?

Mental health issues come in all shapes and sizes. There are more severe problems like mental illness, including depression, anxiety, PTSD, and other disorders that you may not be familiar with. Then, there are more mild problems like stress and fights with our loved ones. 

Regardless of the shape or size of your mental health issue, you can better address it with the help of a mental health professional. And here at Thriveworks, our mental health professionals can help you work through these problems in online counseling. Are you dealing with any of these common mental health problems?

  1. Symptoms of mental illness: As we just introduced, mental illness can be categorized as a more severe problem. You should talk to a mental health professional as soon as you begin to experience symptoms of depression, anxiety, PTSD, or another mental disorder. The longer these problems go unaddressed, the more severe they typically become. The good piece of news is that a mental health professional can help you narrow in on the root of these problems, manage them, and in some cases resolve them. 
  2. Stress: Stress is another common problem, which may be considered as mild in certain cases but more severe in others. For example, you might experience a little bit of stress in your day to day when your to-do list is a mile long. Or, you might experience an overwhelming amount of stress at work when your manager gets fired and all of their responsibilities fall on to your plate. Either way, it’s important to learn how to mitigate and relieve this stress. An online therapist can help you do so.
  3. Problems in your relationships: A third common mental health issue is conflict with loved ones. It’s normal to have fights with our romantic partners, our family members, and our friends. However, sometimes these conflicts turn into bigger problems that are difficult to resolve or manage on our own. Again, the good news is that an online counselor can help us accomplish this important goal.

This is a very short list compared to the many mental health issues out there. If it’s negatively affecting your mental health, it can be considered a mental health issue. And, more importantly, a mental health professional can help you work through it. Either in-person or in an online counseling environment. 

What Are the Benefits of Online Therapy?

Life gets busy, but therapy is an important part of taking care of oneself. Online counseling is great for people that struggle with taking time away from their responsibilities. Since virtual counseling can take place in any safe space with internet connection, it eliminates the need for things like travel and childcare, and even reduces wait times. 

By choosing online therapy, you can save time and money and still get the care you need.
