Mia and Levi have dated for years. They met in an art class in college, and they’ve been together ever since. But lately, the couple has had problems seeing eye to eye.
Mia has always been straightforward and honest. She never backs down from giving her opinion, and she can be stubborn when challenged. Levi is the exact opposite. He has to be asked for his opinion, and he prefers avoiding difficult topics to prevent disagreements. Both Mia and Levi are frustrated by the way the other does or doesn’t communicate.
It’s Levi who suggests they seek relationship advice. Mia agrees but with their busy weekday schedules, they barely have any time alone together, let alone time to join an hour-long appointment.
Levi calls the team at Thriveworks and speaks to a staff member who suggests setting up an online appointment that works around the couple’s busy schedule. Mia and Levi agree, and they arrange a weekend online session with a licensed counselor.
Their counselor works with them to address the couple’s underlying communication challenges. She encourages them to actively listen, self-reflect, and journal. After a few weeks of counseling, the couple is already seeing improvements in their communication.
Whether you’re a couple looking to mesh your schedules or an individual looking to save on commute time, virtual therapy can benefit you. Your mental and emotional health is just as important as your physical health. You don’t have to let time constraints prevent you from seeking the care you deserve.
To book your first online therapy session with a licensed mental health professional, call us at Thriveworks in Green Bay, WI.
Which Types of Therapy Are Offered Virtually?
Online therapy provides the same structure and care you receive during in-person therapy. It even covers the same topics as face-to-face meetings — the biggest difference is that the meetings are hosted remotely rather than in person.
Some of the most common types of therapy addressed by our online therapists include:
- Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
- PTSD counseling and trauma therapy
- Depression and anxiety therapy
- Grief and loss counseling
- Eating disorder counseling
- Substance abuse counseling
- Anger and stress management
- Family counseling and trauma therapy
- Life coaching and career counseling
These and other types of therapy can be performed over phone calls or by video chat with your licensed therapist or counselor. To begin, call us at Thriveworks in Green Bay, WI to set up an online appointment.
How Does Virtual Counseling Work?
There are two ways to speak to a licensed professional virtually: by phone or by video. If you’d like to speak to your provider by phone, simply wait for them to call you during your scheduled appointment time. If you’d like to speak over video, click on the supplied link when it’s time to start your appointment.
Working over the phone is a great choice if you’re calling from a location where video calling is difficult. Meeting over video chat adds a personalized touch and creates an atmosphere similar to traditional therapy.
Whether you choose to chat via video or over the phone, the benefits of virtual therapy are plentiful. You’ll save time on your commute since you can phone your provider from anywhere. You’ll also be able to book your appointment in a narrower window of time since you don’t have to add in travel time.
Additionally, virtual counseling is highly accessible. If you have limited mobility or live in a remote area, virtual appointments make it easier to meet with your provider.
