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 West Hartford, CT 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.

What Is Online Therapy?

Online therapy is simple: it’s receiving therapy online! Don’t worry, the online therapists (or internet therapists, as some call them) at Thriveworks Counseling in West Hartford are licensed, skilled providers. The major difference here is that you will attend therapy via phone call, video chat, or email:

  • What is phone therapy? If you’re interested in online therapy, one option is to attend your sessions over the phone. You will set a specific day and time to talk to your therapist and then they will call you!
  • What is video therapy? This is similar to phone therapy, in that you pick a day and time to work with your therapist, who will then meet you in your video chat at the scheduled time. Some people prefer the video chat method to the phone therapy method because there is still some level of face-to-face interaction.
  • What is email therapy? And finally, you can also choose to work with your online therapist vie email or chat. Instead of occurring at an exact scheduled time, email therapy will occur over a longer course of time. Think: Emailing or texting a friend.

Online therapy is a great option for a lot of different people. For example: Those who don’t have a lot of flexibility in their schedule to drive to therapy and then have a 90-minute session. Also, some people simply prefer working with an online therapist versus working with an in-person therapist because they feel more comfortable.

What Benefits Come with Online Therapy?

We mentioned a few online therapy benefits above, including its convenience. Let’s delve into this benefit as well as additional benefits of online therapy sessions:

  1. Convenience: As we explained above, this is a major benefit of online mental health therapy. For many people, making it to any appointment is inconvenient as well as frustrating, especially when they have a busy school or work schedule. Online therapy is the perfect solution to this problem when it comes to receiving mental health services. You can attend your sessions from virtually anywhere, as long as you have access to the internet or your phone.
  2. Comfort: Another major benefit of online therapy is the comfort level, both literally and figuratively. Many of our clients attend therapy from the comfort of their homes—even in bed or on the couch! Also, many people feel more comfortable with the therapeutic process when doing so via phone, video, or email, which allows them to better succeed in therapy.
  3. Flexibility: Lastly, online therapy is flexible in a way that other forms of therapy and overall healthcare isn’t. You can typically schedule an appointment much more quickly as your desired therapist can more easily schedule a last minute session because it is done online.

I love the format of telehealth in the evening. At a time where it's so challenging to find Psychiatrists, Thriveworks has been so easy to work with. And Ericka is lovely; easy to work with, easy to talk to, trustworthy, and very helpful.
