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 Huntington Beach, CA 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.

Devyn spends nearly every night on the phone with her boyfriend, Brook. Since she temporarily flew back to her parent’s house to help her father transition into assisted living, Brook’s been struggling without her at their apartment. Devyn feels caught between her father’s failing health and her boyfriend’s personal fears—and it feels like she just doesn’t have enough energy to cope with either scenario. 

Devyn doesn’t want to avoid addressing her deteriorating mental health; that’s why she wants to connect virtually through online therapy, so she can still prioritize her needs while she looks after her dad. With the privacy of being able to talk from home, she knows that her one-on-one sessions will go more smoothly, too. Devyn hopes that with online therapy, she’ll be able to vent about the current stressors in her life and learn to manage it with help from a therapist. 

Like Devyn, you might be looking to talk with a mental health professional in order to get insight and assistance with what’s troubling you. At Thriveworks in Huntington Beach, CA, we offer online therapy, a way to prioritize your needs and mental health without having to commute or even leave home.

How Can a Therapist or Counselor Help Me? 

A therapist or counselor works with everyday people to address the mental health challenges or conditions that are preventing them from living life to the fullest. So whether you’re a couple seeking relationship guidance or just someone trying to get a better handle on their emotions, our online therapists have the skills and empathy needed to help you feel better.
