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 El Dorado Hills, CA 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?

To say Jackie has been stressed lately is an understatement. Her work responsibilities are piling up, her mother is sick in the hospital, and her relationship with her partner feels more strained than it’s ever been. Plus, Jackie is a new mom and is barely getting enough sleep at night to keep herself going.

Jackie knows she could use some professional help but is intimidated by the idea of speaking with a therapist or counselor in an office environment. The idea of commuting back and forth is also a turnoff, especially given her already-packed schedule.

If you can relate to Jackie at all, you might benefit from remote therapy services. At Thriveworks, our online counselors work with you via phone calls or live video chats to help you work through your problems and get the treatment you need. Since the sessions are remote, you can pick the time and place, whether that be at your kitchen table, in your home office, or in your bedroom.

Online therapy makes it easier than ever to get access to essential mental health services in a way that is convenient and comfortable for you. When you’re ready to give it a try, contact us at Thriveworks in El Dorado Hills, CA to schedule an online therapy appointment with a licensed professional.

What Types of Online Therapy Are There?

In the past, if you needed mental health support, your only choice might have been to go to an office during the day to sit down with a licensed mental health professional. But today, online therapy gives you access to many of the same mental health benefits as traditional therapy without any of the headaches associated with commuting, traffic, and transportation.

Types of therapy that are available to you online include:

  • Marriage and couples therapy
  • Eating disorder counseling
  • PTSD counseling
  • Anger and stress management
  • Anxiety or depression therapy
  • Career counseling
  • Life coaching
  • Family and child therapy
  • Grief counseling
  • Substance abuse counseling
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)

Whether you are facing a new crisis or you’ve been struggling with a mental health issue for years, working with a mental health professional can help. Our licensed therapists and counselors are standing by to offer support and guidance in-person, over the phone, or via video sessions.

Why Choose Online Counseling?

When you make the decision to talk to a licensed mental health professional, you are taking charge of your mental health. You are admitting to yourself that you have a problem and taking the first courageous step to fix it. Working with a licensed counselor or therapist can give you the opportunity to share what is happening to you, find out where your problems are coming from, and what you can do about them.

However, online therapy sessions are unique in that they allow you to access these benefits from the comfort of your home. Whether through video chats or phone calls, you get an outsider’s perspective from a trained professional who can help you see the bigger picture — all without going anywhere.

Some people prefer video sessions so they can see their therapist and still benefit from that face-to-face interaction. Others prefer the mobility and freedom that comes with talking over the phone. Either way, you get to decide exactly when and where your sessions will be.

Need an evening appointment from your office? No problem. Need a weekend appointment from your basement or bedroom? We can accommodate that too.

Working with a mental health professional has never been easier. If you’re ready to schedule an appointment, reach out to us at Thriveworks in El Dorado Hills, CA today.

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.
