Hear from our clinicians

What is your go-to approach for online therapy?

Dianne: My go-to approach for helping people in online therapy is to try to connect with the client by using a personal approach. I do this by creating conditions for trust and practicing collaborative communication. I find that by actively listening, the client feels that they have a safe place to talk about whatever they are having issues with in their lives.

Billi Jo: My go-to approach for helping people in online therapy is helping people find and understand their own inner conflicts, personal values, and personal strengths. I find the best benefit in helping clients focus on finding solutions to their individual problems and separating themselves from the problem.

What tools do you teach in online therapy?

Dianne: I teach tools in online therapy by verbalizing or narrating what I am thinking about or how I am sensing how my client might be feeling as we interact. Following this up with curious and open questions to check my observations has not only helped me learn to read and listen to my client in this different medium, but has also assisted the client in becoming more aware of these things. It has made the unspoken more explicit.

Billi Jo: I teach the following tools in online therapy:

  • Becoming aware of personal defense mechanics by uncovering repressed feelings, memories, and desires.
  • Becoming aware of one's own strengths and understanding basic mistakes in faulty thinking.

How do you know when a client is making meaningful progress in online therapy?

Dianne: I know a client is making meaningful progress in online therapy when there are changes in their moods or symptoms. For instance, if they started therapy to more effectively manage anxiety, track their mood periodically throughout therapy, and provide information on how their anxiety levels have changed throughout the therapy process.

Billi Jo: I know a client is making meaningful progress in online therapy when a client returns to therapy eager to express what they have processed/learned about their issue and/or themselves and wants to continue to learn and understand themselves and their problems better.

What can clients do in their personal time to supplement online therapy?

Dianne: Clients can supplement their time in online therapy with journaling, using a emotions wheel to identify their emotions, and by using relaxation and breathing techniques regularly.

Billi Jo: Clients can supplement their time in online therapy by utilizing homework skills and reporting back on how these skills were helpful or not helpful. Homework is a collaborative effort between the client and the therapist.

What should someone do to prepare for starting online therapy?

Dianne: To prepare for your first online therapy session, you can make of list of things that you want to gain out of therapy. Also, making a list of issues you are having is another good way to prepare for therapy.

Billi Jo: To prepare for your first online therapy session, you can make a list of problems you are experiencing in life. You can also imagine what it would be like if you woke up tomorrow and your issues in life were more easily manageable.

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 Jacksonville, FL 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?

It’s easy to feel like the world is against you: When you’re doing your best at work but your boss continues to call you lazy; when your “Check Engine” light comes on; when your partner picks a petty fight with you; when a loved one passes suddenly and unexpectedly.

We could keep listing unfortunate and upsetting events, but the truth is that the list would never end. We all have bad days and are forced to deal with saddening or maddening circumstances. This, we can’t change—what we can change is how we respond to the hand we are dealt. If you’ve been dealt a difficult hand and you don’t know what your next move should be, consider working with an online therapist at Thriveworks Counseling in Jacksonville, FL (West).

Online counseling enables you to work with a skilled, experience mental health professional online. The online therapists at Thriveworks Counseling in Jacksonville, FL (West) can help you find greater success and fulfillment at work; they can help you better manage day to day stress; they can help you work through relationship issues; and they can offer you support in a time of grieving. If you think you could benefit from online therapy services (or another mental health service), reach out to Thriveworks today.

What Is Online Therapy?

As we’ve explained above, online therapy gives you the opportunity to work with your therapist, counselor, or coach online—be it over the phone, via videoconference, or over email/messaging system:

  1. Phone counseling: Phone counseling is one online therapy option. With this option, you will set a scheduled day and time for meeting with your therapist. They will then call you at this time, so be sure to have service and/or Wi-Fi to answer it!
  2. Videoconference counseling: Video counseling is another option if you’re looking for online therapy. With this option, you will set a day and time to meet with your therapist (just like phone counseling). This time, you’ll jump into the videoconference at the agreed time.
  3. Email counseling: A third online therapy counseling option is email counseling. This is the most casual and flexible option of the three. Instead of working with your counselor on a set day and time as with the previous two, you’ll communicate back and forth over a longer, more flexible period of time.

Are you intrigued by any of the above therapy options? Online therapy might be worth exploring. Remember: Therapy can help you work through a wide variety of problems, including those we listed above. If you think you could benefit from working with a therapist but you don’t want to go through the trouble of making it to the therapy office for your appointment, online therapy is the solution.

Online Therapy Benefits: Comfort, Convenience, and Flexibility

If you’re still deciding whether online therapy or in-person therapy is the right option for you, consider the following online therapy benefits:

  1. Comfort: Online therapy provides a level of comfort that in-person therapy can’t. Again, online therapy counseling allows you to attend your counseling session from your comfortable bed, couch, or anywhere else you please.
  2. Convenience: Online therapy is also the most convenient therapy session (according to many clients), which goes hand in hand with the comfort factor.
  3. Flexibility: In addition, online therapy allows you to schedule quick and flexible appointments. You can often get in much quicker with a therapist if you choose online therapy versus in-person therapy.

On top of comfort, convenience, and flexibility, online therapy is affordable. That’s right—most insurance companies now pay for online therapy services. If yours doesn’t, that’s okay, because Thriveworks provides affordable options.

Jessica Gort is by far the best therapist I’ve ever had. She’s not only met my needs and expectations, she goes above and beyond that. When I first met with Jessica i was newly sober and recently lost my father, I was struggling and had just ended a professional relationship with a prior therapist that couldn’t help me with what I needed at that time. I felt lost and was losing hope until I met her. I expressed my concerns with Jessica and she did everything she could to help me in the ways that I needed, to keep my sobriety and mental health intact during my grieving process. If I could rate her 10 stars I would. She’s amazing. Highly recommend.
