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 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.

Our Thriveworks therapists at Thriveworks in Huntsville, AL 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?

Thanks to celebrities and others sharing their experience with mental illness on social media, mental health issues have earned more awareness as a common and natural occurrence. In fact, 1 in 4 Americans will suffer from a mental or emotional disorder at some point in their lives.

However, many people still have a hard time admitting they need help. Some agree that it is important to prioritize mental health but aren’t sure if their problems are severe enough to warrant seeing a therapist. Others may know they need help but struggle to fit in-person therapy appointments into their busy schedule.

When it comes to seeking out therapy, there’s no doubt that the first step can seem daunting. That’s why we offer the convenience of online therapy options for Thriveworks clients.

How Does Online Therapy Work?

Some clients find it overwhelming to fight traffic on a regular basis to make it to a counseling center. Speaking to someone you don’t know about mental health concerns can feel unsettling in and of itself. Virtual therapy removes these obstacles and allows you to benefit from mental health counseling on your own terms.

At Thriveworks, we offer online counseling services by phone call or video chat. This means speaking to a licensed professional counselor is easier than ever.

Some clients prefer live video chats because they can see their counselor’s face, which can help to build a trusting relationship. It also makes it easier for your therapist to read your body language and nuanced facial expressions.

However, phone therapy is also offered at Thriveworks. For some individuals, opening up is more comfortable over the phone. Others may lack a capable device or the required internet connection. Like video chatting, phone therapy can be accessed anywhere, from your lunch break at work to your bedroom at home.

Many vulnerable clients also find virtual therapy appealing if they are unable to leave home due to a medical condition or disability. Others may simply not have reliable access to transportation or live in more remote areas. Online therapy services remove these barriers and make essential mental health services available to many more people.

There’s no doubt that making mental health a priority can be a challenge in today’s busy world. Online sessions can more easily fit within anyone’s schedule, making family therapy and couples therapy more attainable. They also help our clients to maintain the frequency and consistency that are so important when it comes to starting therapy. If you’re struggling with mental and emotional issues, online counseling can make a difference.

If you’ve been suffering from a mental health issue like anxiety or depression, consider making an appointment today. Our licensed clinical social workers, psychiatrists, psychologists, and therapists are ready to help at Thriveworks Counseling in Huntsville, AL.

I had to stop and leave a review on La-Shieka Brooks! She is such a gifted therapist and a wonderful person. Her diagnostic skills are highly refined, and she is able to put her clients at ease no matter the circumstance. I have worked for her as an intern, and with her as a college, so I can highly recommend her both for her work ethic and her client care.
