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 Fredericksburg, VA 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?

Did you know that you don’t even have to leave your house to meet with a counselor? That’s right, they’ll come to you in phone counseling or video counseling! Online counseling enables you to meet with your counselor in appointments that occur over the phone or in a private, secure video chatroom. This proves to be a comfortable, convenient, and safe option for those who can’t make it in for in-person counseling sessions.

Online therapy has proven to help many different people with varying needs and challenges. That being said, it’s all about exploring your options and finding what type of therapy suits you best. If you find that you prefer in-person counseling sessions to online counseling sessions, that’s great! However, online counseling will enable you to continue to make progress in therapy when you can’t make it into the office, such as during stay-at-home orders.

If you’re interested in online counseling, consider working with an online counselor at Thriveworks Fredericksburg. We have caring, licensed mental health professionals who are excited to begin working with you. To schedule your appointment with one of our providers, just call (540) 322-5424.

What Can I Expect from Online Counseling?

Some people feel a little intimidated when they hear about online counseling. Why? Because they worry that it will require them to have a high level of technological skills. In reality, all you need is access to a telephone (which most of us have), a computer, or another device that connects to the internet.

If you prefer telephone counseling sessions to video counseling sessions, you’ll simply answer your therapist’s call at the time of your appointment. If you prefer the latter, you’ll just click a link to your videoconference at the time of your appointment, which your counselor will send you in advance. It’s as simple as that! There is no catch. If you still feel worried or intimidated, don’t worry. Your counselor will assist you and ensure that you are all set up and ready to go to have your first phone or video session.

# Benefits of Working with an Online Counselor

If you’re still weighing your options, be sure to consider the benefits that many clients find in online counseling. For example, here are main highlights of online counseling that people enjoy in working with a counselor online:

  1. It’s convenient: We can’t say enough about how convenient online counseling is. It improves accessibility to mental health services, as it doesn’t require you to venture to a local counseling office. Instead you can attend right from home (or wherever you prefer).
  2. It’s tested and effective: Additionally, online counseling proves to be an effective counseling option. Some people worry that they won’t make as much progress in online counseling as they would in in-person counseling. The truth, though, is that research shows online counseling is effective. In fact, some people find that online counseling is even more effective! Especially those who struggle to open up in in-person sessions.
  3. It’s affordable: At one time, insurance wasn’t likely to cover online counseling. Today, though, most insurance companies pay for at least one kind of online counseling. Typically, this is video counseling, but many companies are starting to cover telephone counseling too! Thriveworks Fredericksburg also has affordable self-pay options available.
  4. It’s flexible: Also, online therapy is flexible in turns of scheduling your appointment. Instead of having to wait weeks for your first appointment, you can often see an online counselor much sooner than that, maybe even a day or two after you schedule it.

If you’re ready to experience a convenient, effective, affordable, and flexible counseling option, consider working with an online counselor at Thriveworks Fredericksburg.

Ann is a great listener, but she is also helpful with strategies for coping and communicating. She does more than "validate feelings."

I had the best luck with finding Krista! She helped me through so much. The doctors were quick to put me on several medications which made me feel worse with my anxiety and depression. So she helped me find different natural ways of coping. She had the best advice, it was honestly kind of a sad day when I realized I didn’t need her anymore. But I know who I’m going back to if I ever need someone to talk to again! Krista if you see this please know you helped save my life! Thank you!

Happy with everything except the 48 hr cancellation policy. 24hrs is pretty standard and more feasible when you have children.

I’m very relieved to have finally started therapy sessions with Robert. It’s taken me a while to make this move towards dealing with some outstanding hurts. I’m certain I’ve come to the right place.
