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 Detroit, MI 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?

How do you feel about going to the doctor’s office? It probably isn’t your favorite thing in the world. But you can’t deny the importance of doing so when you’re feeling sick, when you’re injured, or when it’s time for a check-up.

The good news is that in our present day, we are able to attend many of these appointments from home. These virtual appointments are called telehealth sessions, and they make talking to a medical professional easier and more convenient.

Just as you can talk to a general physician online, you can talk to a mental health counselor online. Mental health counselors help individuals address mental health issues, from mental illness to stress, relationship problems, and others. These live sessions, which can take place over the phone or video, allow the client and therapist to make meaningful progress together.

If you are interested in exploring online counseling therapy, reach out to Thriveworks Counseling in Detroit, MI. We can help you set up a telephone or video session with a mental health professional, or we can answer any questions you might have about online therapy services.

How Does Online Therapy Work? What Do I Need?

Online counseling is simple. Here at Thriveworks, you can choose to work with a therapist in telephone sessions or video sessions. Both of these are effective options, but some people prefer one over the other. 

Have you been to in-person therapy before? If so, you may prefer video sessions, as this is the closest option to working with your counselor in-person (without actually working with them in-person). On the other hand, if you’re feeling a little nervous about trying therapy, you may prefer telephone sessions.

If you try one form of online counseling and then decide you’d like to try the other option, you’re more than welcome to do so. Thriveworks in Detroit, MI is happy to accommodate your needs and preferences.

Mental Health Issues Addressed in Online Counseling

You might be wondering, “Can online counseling help me with my mental health issues?” The answer is most likely yes. The only true major difference between in-person and online counseling is that with the latter, you meet with your therapist in a virtual environment. You are still able to have important (yet tough) conversations, which is the catalyst for change. 

To be more specific, online counseling can help people with a wide variety of mental health issues, including:

  • Symptoms of depression or anxiety
  • Relationship issues, like infidelity or parenting disagreements
  • Family conflicts, like misbehavior in a child
  • Addiction and substance abuse problems
  • Eating disorders like bulimia and anorexia
  • Stress, anger, and other difficult emotions
  • Traumatic experiences
  • Grief and loss

These are common mental health issues that many people, like you and I, will experience in our lifetime. That said, there are other problems that online counselors can help their clients with. If you are struggling with any given challenge that is hurting or threatening your mental and emotional health, please don’t hesitate to reach out to an online therapist.

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.
