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 Dallas, 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?

Have you ever thought about talking to a therapist? If you’ve yet to follow through and schedule your session, these obstacles might have prevented you from doing so:

  1. The local therapy office can’t get you in anytime soon
  2. The closest therapy practices aren’t anywhere nearby
  3. Your local office doesn’t offer evening or weekend sessions
  4. You’re just feeling too nervous about meeting with a therapist

These are common obstacles for those who look into mental health services. The good news is that online therapy at Thriveworks Counseling in Dallas, TX offers a solution to these and other obstacles that might stand in your way.

Online therapy, sometimes called e-counseling, means working with your counselor virtually. Here at Thriveworks, you can meet with your provider in telephone sessions or video sessions. These are two convenient, effective options for receiving mental health services. 

To schedule online counseling at Thriveworks in Dallas, TX, call our office! Our team is standing by to help you set up your first appointment!

Online Services: Individual Therapy, Couples Counseling, and More

Online therapy is a lot like in-person therapy. The biggest difference is, of course, the virtual meetings. Now, both in-person therapy and online counseling enable the individual to make meaningful changes and progress with their provider. In both instances, the therapist tailors their client’s sessions to their needs. 

For instance, if you and your partner are struggling to get along, your therapist will utilize couples therapy techniques to help. On the other hand, if you’re exhibiting struggling with stress, they will focus on helping you identify your stressors and implement stress management techniques.

The gist is that your counselor will design your treatment around your mental health needs and goals. There are many types of therapy that the counselors at Thriveworks can lead online. These include:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Couples and marriage counseling
  • Depression and anxiety therapy
  • Grief and loss counseling
  • Stress management counseling
  • Trauma PTSD counseling
  • Family therapy
  • Teen counseling
  • And more

Do you think that any of these types of therapy could help you? Don’t worry, you aren’t expected to know exactly what type of therapy you need or could best benefit from. You can rely on your counselor for that.

What Does Online Counseling Look Like?

Again, in-person and online counseling are very similar. The latter might involve attending your appointment via less conventional means, but you can still expect your counselor to offer skilled and compassionate care.

If you’re worried about whether or not online counseling is effective, you should know that studies have shown online counseling to be just as effective as in-person counseling. For some people, it’s even more effective because they feel more comfortable opening up over the phone or video versus in-person.

If you decide to work with an online counselor at Thriveworks in Dallas, TX, your counselor will meet you via your preferred means. If you would like to talk over the phone, they’ll be happy to call you. Or, if you’d rather meet with them in a videoconference, they’ll be happy to meet you there!

Many of our clients prefer online sessions to in-person sessions, as they offer more convenience and comfort. Additionally, online sessions bring with them the following benefits:

  • No commute to or from the therapy center
  • Greater flexibility with scheduling and quicker turn-around
  • Less nerves!

If you’d like to give online counseling a try, Thriveworks Counseling in Dallas, TX would be happy to walk you through the journey. We can help you schedule your appointment and connect you with an online therapist who has the right skills to help.

Worked with Francis Segovia and was friendly and empathetic. She helped me get on a solid plan to meet my medication needs. She also sent a referral for an LPC in network.

I must take a moment to submit a review for Dr. Geraldine Hickerson! Dr. Hickerson not only has significant experience as a therapist, she also is compassionate about the care provided. Compassion guides the therapist to treat the person as an individual- fully listening and creating a safe space for therapeutic healing. Dr. Hickerson is phenomenal at creating that safe space. I highly recommend her as a trusted therapist.
