Raymond and his sister, Iris have always been close. As they’ve gotten older though, Raymond’s noticed that it’s been hard for both of them to connect the way that they used to, as jobs, relationships, and other things came up. While he’s happy to still have Iris in his life, Raymond wants to be closer with his sister but isn’t sure how at this point.
After video chatting with Iris the other night, Raymond brought up the subject to his sister, and Iris agreed; they’d seemed to have lost touch somehow. Iris brought up the option of talking to an online therapist or counselor about their relationship—maybe having a professional’s guidance could help them both to communicate more effectively and to re-engage with each other. Somehow. Raymond feels like it’s a good idea and even though he’s nervous, he feels open to talking to a mental health professional. He also knows that virtual sessions could be really convenient, too.

- Avoidant behaviors/conflict resolution
- Anxiety, or obsessive thoughts (random or situation-specific)

- Relationship issues
Keep in mind though–these are only a few of the many different ways that a mental health professional at Thriveworks in Gilbert, AZ can assist you. Don’t be worried if your specific situation or condition isn’t listed above; by talking with your therapist or counselor, you can give them the feedback they need to understand your unique mental health needs.
What Are the Benefits of Online Therapy?
You may feel nervous about talking to a provider—but that’s another reason to consider online therapy as a viable alternative to meeting in person. It may eliminate some of your anxiety, and make it easier to get the most out of your counseling session. Online therapy can be beneficial if you would rather:
- Avoid the anxiety that arises for some during in-person sessions.
- Engage with your provider over the phone or video as you both explore the sources and effects of anxiety, sadness, relationship issues, and more.
- Meet with your therapist anywhere, as long as you have a solid internet connection and a private space to speak during your session.
Plus, rest assured that our online therapy sessions still adhere to the same strict privacy guidelines set forth by the APA and HIPAA.
