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 Corpus Christi, TX 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?

Hannah and Kesha had been best friends since elementary school. They’d grown up together, gone to Texas A&M, and had been bridesmaids at each other’s weddings. But recently they’d had a huge falling out and they were both heartbroken not to be in each other’s lives anymore. Their husbands had tried to get involved to smooth things over between their wives, but the men only seemed to make things worse. Even Kesha and Hannah’s mothers had gotten involved, because they were friends too. But no one could resolve the conflict, and the months dragged on with no contact between the women. They were both feeling depressed and lonely about losing the friendship. What could they do? 

Hannah and Kesha should reach out to a friendship therapist at Thriveworks in Corpus Christi, TX. A friendship therapist is like a licensed family and marriage therapist (LMFT), but they specialize in helping friends overcome conflicts through professional couples counseling. The licensed therapist at Thriveworks in Corpus Christi, TX can meet with the women online so they don’t have to be in the same room at first during therapy sessions. Online friendship therapy could be a great first step toward healing their lifelong bond.

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.
