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 Dacula, GA 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?

Vick and his wife recently returned from their honeymoon, after having waited for some time. Although Vick enjoyed the experience and is in love with his partner, he can’t shake the feeling that he’s submerged, as though he’s wading through his own negative emotions. While he doesn’t want to keep the pain he’s feeling hidden from his partner, he doesn’t feel like it’s the best time for him to talk about such an uncomfortable subject. As a new husband, Vick would rather not burden his spouse with what he’s worried could be depression. 

But instead of bottling up his emotions, Vick’s decided that he wants to talk to a therapist about what he’s feeling. He knows that if he continues to avoid the negative thoughts that are building up, he could start to harm other aspects of his life, including his relationship. And by being able to talk to a therapist virtually, he knows that he’ll have more freedom to express himself, without worrying about leaving home or the office. 

Perhaps like Vick, you’re also looking to turn to online therapy as an alternative to meeting a provider in person. At Thriveworks in Dacula, GA our virtual mental health services offer a convenient and secure way to prioritize your mental health without missing a step. Call our office today if you’re interested in the ways that online therapy might benefit you. 

What Is Online Therapy?

Online therapy is nearly identical to a traditional in-person therapy session, except that both therapist and client are in different locations, talking from their own chosen spaces. For this reason, online therapy can be attractive for those with odd work schedules, family obligations, or health issues that prevent them from being mobile. And for those who feel nervous talking to a therapist in person, it might be easier to communicate with a therapist when you can talk virtually. 

With online therapy at Thriveworks in Dacula, GA you can connect with your provider from nearly anywhere. As long as you’ve got reliable internet access and somewhere private to talk, getting high-quality mental health care has never been easier. We’ve ensured that: 

  • Online therapy is safe and secure: We abide by the strictest HIPAA regulations to protect your privacy and personal information.
  • Online therapy is effective: Online therapy provides the same level of professionalism and attention as an in-person session.

We’ve streamlined our client experience for you— so whether you’re a couple seeking relationship guidance or just trying to get a handle on your emotions, our online therapists have the skills and empathy needed to help you feel better.  

Should I Talk to an Online Therapist? 

Choosing to see a mental health professional might be a personal choice, but anyone can benefit from talking to a therapist or counselor. No matter what your situation is, therapy isn’t just about trying to be happy—it’s about learning to adapt to what life has dealt us. Online therapy provides you with access to a therapist’s advice on coping with grief, anger, frustration, depression; you name it. 

One of the benefits of talking with a mental health professional is that they can diagnose and help treat different mental health conditions that you may have. Symptoms of different conditions often vary from person to person, so it’s better not to try and self-diagnose. But with that in mind, signs of potential mental health conditions might manifest themselves as: 

  • An unusually short temper 
  • Fatigue or insomnia 
  • Lack of interest in sex 
  • Lack of interest in hobbies, relationships, or social gatherings 
  • Persistent feelings of loneliness and sadness 
  • Paranoia

What Are the Benefits of Online Therapy?

With online therapy, a mental health professional can work with you to address specific situations that may be causing you distress, including: 

  • Anxiety-inducing events like financial hardship or losing a job
  • Relationship or marital issues
  • Depression, or feelings of loneliness 
  • Intense feelings of grief or anger

And online therapy isn’t just for individuals. For families and couples, online therapy can be a great way to prioritize your relationship, even if you’re living separately. Reconnect and establish healthy communication with the guidance of an online therapist.
