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 Hattiesburg, MS 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?

Beginning therapy to improve your mental health can feel like a big step. If you are struggling with mental health issues or undergoing a major change in your life, adding something new to the mix may feel overwhelming and possibly even frightening. While you may want professional help managing your mental health, it might seem impossible to commute to and from a therapist’s office on a regular basis.

Mental health issues, phobias, disability, socioeconomic factors, and scheduling conflicts can all get in the way of pursuing traditional therapy. If one or more of these issues resonates for you, consider trying online therapy with a licensed counselor or therapist at Thriveworks in Hattiesburg, MS.

Online therapy is an accessible, convenient way to pursue counseling and improve your mental health when there are obstacles standing in your way. Our online therapists can provide you the same personalized help that you’d receive with in-person therapy sessions, right from the comfort of home.

Why Consider Online Counseling?

Online therapists undergo the same extensive training and education that other therapists do, and often see clients for face-to-face therapy sessions as well. Put simply, online therapy can be a convenient way to pursue better mental health and stay connected with your therapist or counselor without completely rearranging your schedule or sacrificing your comfort.

When you decide to pursue online counseling, you’ll be able to decide whether you’d prefer to speak with your provider through phone calls or video sessions. Both options are effective and convenient methods of virtual therapy, and you may prefer one over the other depending on your specific issues or needs.

For many people, the thought of beginning therapy or counseling can feel daunting, overwhelming, or even scary. Disorders such as social anxiety or certain phobias may actually make meeting a therapist face-to-face a significantly stressful or frightening event. Online counseling is an easy way for these people to begin counseling for the issues that are interfering with their life, without causing added distress.

Transportation difficulties, health issues, or disability may also make it impossible or very difficult for you to commute to in-person therapy. Online counseling removes this obstacle so that anyone needing counseling has the opportunity to access quality health care services, regardless of their ability to commute to and from an office.

The stigma around mental health issues can also create hesitancy or even cause undeserved embarrassment around visiting a therapist’s office. But there’s no shame in taking care of your mental health, just as there is no shame in caring for your physical health either.

Whether you are unsure about in-person sessions, physically unable to visit our office, or just want the convenience of remote appointments, consider online therapy services at Thriveworks in Hattiesburg, MS. We can provide a stress-free way to ease into counseling from a space where you are most comfortable.
