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 Eden Prairie, MN 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?

Rachel’s mom and sister were practically begging Rachel to see a mental health provider. Rachel’s mood had plummeted over the past few months. She had stopped showing up for her job and was now unemployed. She didn’t want to eat, even when her mom dropped by with the homemade comfort food that Rachel usually loved. All Rachel wanted to do was lie in bed, either sleeping or staring at the ceiling. She cried constantly, but couldn’t seem to articulate to her family what was wrong. She just felt despair. She felt like her mind and body were breaking down. Rachel was open to seeing a therapist or a psychiatrist for her acute symptoms of clinical depression, but she didn’t want to leave the house. It just seemed overwhelming to visit a clinic and see a doctor, even if they could provide the resources to help elevate her mood. What should Rachel do?

Rachel should reach out to a licensed online therapist at Thriveworks in Eden Prairie, MN. The mental health providers at Thriveworks are fully qualified to deliver exceptional care to people who are experiencing mental health conditions like depression and anxiety. They can schedule the appointments virtually, often within 24-48 hours, and start delivering compassionate, premium care right away. Rachel won’t have to worry about leaving her house in order to get the help she needs. She can stay in her familiar home environment, but still see a top-rated professional.

What Are the Benefits of Online Counseling?

People are used to doing pretty much everything online these days: work, school, socializing with friends, etc. Why not mental health care?

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.
