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 Edison, NJ 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?

Unfortunately, we don’t always give our mental health the attention it deserves. Now, the good news, is that we’re learning about the importance of mental health and wellbeing, as well as how we can improve and maintain our mental health and wellbeing—sometimes, this involves working with a counselor.

“I wish that people could understand that the brain is the most important organ in your body. Just because you can’t see it like you could see a broken bone doesn’t mean it’s not as detrimental and devastating to a family or an individual.” –Demi Lovato

If you think that you could find value in working with a counselor, but you aren’t ready to commit to in-person counseling for whatever reason, consider online counseling. Online counseling offers many benefits that in-person counseling doesn’t. It also can offer a solution to many of the problems that people run into in searching for mental health services.

Thriveworks Edison Therapy has online counseling opportunities available. To schedule an appointment and get started in online counseling, simply give our office a call.

Online Counseling Options at Thriveworks Edison Therapy

Here at Thriveworks Edison Therapy, we offer two main types of online or virtual counseling: telephone counseling and video counseling. Both prove to be effective counseling options, but some people have strong preferences for one or the other. Here’s a little bit about each:

  1. Telephone counseling: This service is pretty self-explanatory. In telephone counseling, you simply work with your counselor over the phone. At Thriveworks Edison Therapy, your counselor will call you at the time of your appointment.
  2. Video counseling: Video counseling, on the other hand, is done via a secure video chat room. At Thriveworks Edison Therapy, your counselor will send you a link to said chat room, of which you should join at the time of your session!

Now, if you prefer the face-to-face interaction that you get in in-person counseling, video counseling might be the right online counseling option for you. If, on the other hand, this isn’t preferable or important to you, telephone counseling might be the right counseling option instead! Either way, the counselors at Thriveworks Edison Therapy are happy to accommodate you in whichever form of online counseling you’d like to explore.

What Are the Benefits of Online Counseling?

Online counseling brings many benefits to the table. It allows individuals to attend their counseling appointments without even leaving their homes! It also allows people to attend counseling from the office, from the local coffee shop, or from wherever else they need to. We recommend finding a quiet space to talk with your counselor, but most of all, you should attend your session from wherever works for you.

In addition to this convenience factor, online counseling offers comfort: both physically and mentally. You’re welcome to attend your session from wherever you feel comfortable, be it your living room, dining room, or somewhere else. Now, many clients also feel more comfortable in online counseling from a mental standpoint when it comes to opening up about their problems. This can lead to even greater success in counseling.

The benefits don’t stop there. Online counseling also comes with greater flexibility, reliability, and more. To begin experiencing these benefits, simply give online counseling a try. Thriveworks Edison Therapy is here to get to work when you are.

Work with an Online Counselor at Thriveworks Edison Therapy

As we’ve discussed, online counseling is a solution for many people who are looking for counseling but can’t commit to regular in-person sessions. Online counseling enables you to meet with your counselor right from home or wherever else you happen to be/need to be. This is meant to be a convenient, comfortable option that empowers you to make meaningful changes and advancement with your provider.

If you’re ready to take the plunge into online counseling, give Thriveworks Edison Therapy a call. We’ve taken it upon ourselves to offer both in-person and online mental health services, to best accommodate all of our clients. If you’re interested in the many benefits and perks of online counseling, we’re happy to set you up with a counselor who can help you over the phone or video. Just call our office and we’ll get you all set up.

Talisha Harrison helped me by giving me the tools to help me navigate some difficult relationships. I also appreciate how kind, sensitive, and empathetic she was as I have been grieving a recent loss of a parent. I have also been recovering from a serious medical condition. Should I feel the need to seek counseling in the future, I would not hesitate to return to counseling with Talisha.

I find Nancy to be a deeply compassionate, caring, mental health professional who takes a strength based approach in her practice. Her heightened mindfulness creates an environment where meaning can be cultivated. Her divergent perspectives and holistic approach transcend the work she does.
