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 Fargo, ND 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?

Taking care of yourself physically and mentally can sometimes feel like a full-time job. Good physical health requires diligence in eating healthy foods, getting plenty of fresh air and exercise, and checking in with your doctor from time to time. Your mental health is just as important — it requires staying in touch with your emotions, addressing your concerns, and sometimes, a check-in with a licensed professional.

When life gets hectic, it can be easy to let these things fall by the wayside. Unfortunately, falling behind in caring for yourself can take a major toll on your overall wellbeing. Left ignored, mental health issues can start to interfere with your relationships, your career, and your day-to-day life.

Making a trip to your therapist’s office may be the best way to get back on track — but it can also seem out of reach. Chaotic schedules, busy families, demanding jobs, illness, or disability can make commuting across town difficult or impossible. This is where online counseling can help, providing convenient access to a mental health professional when you need it most.

Online therapy is a great way to connect with a licensed therapist or counselor when in-person meetings simply won’t work. Whether free time, distance, or other obstacles are standing in the way, the online therapists at Thriveworks in Fargo, ND are available to meet with you through phone calls or video chat and help you regain control of your mental health.

Types of Mental Health Services Offered Online

Online counseling can be just as effective and beneficial as in-person therapy, but with a different mode of communication used. Rather than meeting with your therapist in person, you’ll connect over phone calls or video chats. Most types of therapy can be conducted virtually with a licensed counselor or therapist without sacrificing your quality of care.

Thriveworks in Fargo, ND offers a variety of online therapy services, including the following:

  • Marriage and family therapy
  • Couples counseling
  • Addiction or substance abuse counseling
  • Depression therapy
  • Anxiety counseling
  • Anger and stress management
  • LGBTQ+ counseling
  • Trauma or PTSD therapy
  • Psychiatric counseling
  • Grief counseling

Getting the therapy and counseling you need doesn’t have to be a struggle. Thriveworks in Fargo, ND offers a wide variety of services online, making the mental health care you need more accessible, no matter where you are.

What Can I Expect From Online Therapy?

The process of online therapy is very much like that of traditional therapy, but is conducted by phone calls or video chat, rather than face-to-face. You can choose which method you’d prefer to use when connecting with your therapist, depending on what makes you most comfortable or which method is most accessible for you.

Therapy sessions held over video chat can feel more like face-to-face meetings and may provide more benefit for those with communication challenges, or people who utilize facial expressions, hand gestures, or body language to express thoughts or emotions. Phone calls, on the other hand, may be especially beneficial for clients with social anxiety or specific phobias, and are a great way to ease into therapy if you’re feeling nervous or hesitant about your first session.

When you pursue online counseling, your online therapist will use your virtual sessions to get to know you on a personal basis. They’ll assess your specific concerns, symptoms, emotional state, and past experiences to determine a treatment plan that is best suited to treat your mental health issues.

Your treatment plan may include one or multiple therapeutic techniques such as dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), or interpersonal therapy. These forms of talk therapy can all be conducted online, without commuting across town or taking time away extra time from work or family.

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.
