Hear from our clinicians

What is your go-to approach for online therapy?

Krystal: My go-to approach for helping people in online therapy is to meaningfully connect with clients by not only navigating what had led them to seek support, but also being mindful of how telehealth therapy can feel intimidating to some.

Christian: My go-to approach depends on your needs. I am most confident in cognitive behavioral therapy, the Gottman method, and acceptance and commitment therapy.

What tools do you teach in online therapy?

Krystal: I teach the following tools in online therapy:

  • Monitoring mood and triggers: Becoming more aware of situations that are challenging and lead us to feel triggered.
  • Adaptive thinking strategies: Restructuring our thoughts in situations to provide ourselves the opportunity to reframe thoughts so they are more realistic and positive.
  • Developing coping skills: Identifying and practicing a toolkit of coping skills that can be readily accessed to help calm the physical responses to anxiety, depression, anger, etc.
  • Improved boundaries: Learning how to create and adhere to healthy and appropriate boundaries in personal and professional relationships.

Christian: I teach cognitive behavioral health, coping skills, self-acceptance, and more.

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

Krystal: I know a client is making meaningful progress in online therapy when he/she comes consistently to sessions and not only demonstrates the skills learned during the session but can recount having successfully used them outside of the session as well.

Christian: I know a client is making meaningful progress when their symptoms begin to resolve and they feel they are working toward goals.

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

Krystal: Clients can supplement their time in online therapy with worksheets, workbooks, and resources found online that address their specific treatment concerns.

Christian: You can supplement therapy by doing anything that promotes your goals and taking care of yourself.

What should someone do to prepare for starting online therapy?

Krystal: To prepare for your first online therapy session, you can familiarize yourself with the online format and be open to the idea that therapy can be just as rewarding and effective outside an office setting as it is in person.

Christian: Come open, honest, and ready for unwavering support.

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.

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 Cornelius, NC accept most major forms of insurance, which means that many of our clients only pay $0-$50 co-pay per session.

Krystal made my first session very comfortable and welcoming. Her goal is to get the best version of yourself she can. I can’t thank her enough for saving my life when I didn’t even know how desperate I was to be saved. HIGHLY recommend her services.
