What is your go-to approach for online therapy?

My go-to approach for helping people in online therapy is an eclectic approach in order to individualize care for what my client needs. I find the best benefit in using a mixture of cognitive behavioral therapy, attachment-based therapy, and mindfulness because the combination of these three therapies incorporates thoughts, emotions, and body awareness. I believe addressing therapeutic issues holistically can be quite effective and address a multitude of my clients' needs.

What tools do you teach in online therapy?

I teach the following tools in online therapy:

  • Awareness: Without awareness, we can't change How are your thoughts, emotions, and/or body cues influencing you and affecting your choices/behaviors?
  • Identifying cognitive distortions: What unhealthy repetitive thought patterns are happening subconsciously?
  • Reframing: How we can reframe these negative thought patterns to empower you as the client?
  • Curiosity with empowerment: How have childhood dynamics impacted the way you show up presently in life, work, relationships, etc.? How would you rather show up?
  • Deep breathing: Breathing exercises to slow down an overworked nervous system and create more self-awareness and safety within your body.
Plus many more, depending on what my client's goals and needs are!

How do you know when a client is making meaningful progress in online therapy?

I know a client is making meaningful progress in online therapy when they are feeling secure, empowered, and safe enough to advocate for their needs and start to make decisions that align with their genuine selves. I love when clients are able to celebrate their hard work and say, “Guess what? I set a boundary!” or “I was able to catch my inner critic and show myself compassion instead!”

What can clients do in their personal time to supplement online therapy?

Clients can supplement their time in online therapy with journaling, mindful walks or other enjoyable forms of exercise, deep breathing practices at home, comforting hobbies, and social support.

What should someone do to prepare for starting online therapy?

To prepare for your first online therapy session, you can reflect on what goals you want to work on in therapy, what obstacles have gotten in your way, and what you might need from a therapist. Remember, therapy is about you, so it is important that you find a therapist you connect with and feel empowered and comfortable enough to be vulnerable. I also recommend double-checking that you have a strong, secure internet connection so that you can receive the best services possible!

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 Colorado Springs, CO 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.

Jerry was amazing! Jerry uses choice theory in order to help his patients grow and work through their problems. Choice theory was helpful through my relationship counseling but also could be used individually to helps each person grow themselves. Jerry used real scenarios in order to water down the theory, making it less scientific and more geared toward individual use. Jerry was patient, helpful, and very understanding.
