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 Jersey City, NJ 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?

How do you feel when you think about scheduling or attending another appointment? Many people experience unpleasant or unwelcome feelings. They view this process as inconvenient and sometimes even neglect to schedule or attend an appointment because of it—even when they really need it.

The good piece of news is this: There are now virtual appointment options, even for counseling services. Online therapy at Thriveworks Counseling in Jersey City, NJ makes scheduling and attending counseling appointments easier and more convenient. You can either schedule your session yourself using our online booking system, or you can call our office and we’ll help you schedule on the spot. You can also look forward to attending your appointment with your counselor by phone or video rather than in person. 

There are additional benefits to online therapy as well, from the level of comfort to it being an affordable option, too. If you would like to hear more about what we can offer with our online counseling services or you’re ready to set up your first appointment, don’t hesitate to call our Jersey City office.

What Mental Health Issues Can Be Addressed in Online Therapy?

Mental health issues can mean something different for everyone. Some of us are struggling with depression and anxiety or other mental health conditions, while others are struggling with stress, relationship issues, and other challenges that negatively affect our mental health. 

Regardless of the exact issue, a mental health professional can help us break the problem down, work through it well, and then come out stronger on the other end. And here at Thriveworks in Jersey City, our counselors and psychologists can help you do this in telehealth sessions. 

Now, there are common or widespread mental health issues that many of us deal with at some point in our lives. For example

  1. Mental health conditions: As we mentioned earlier, some of us struggle with depression, anxiety, and other mental disorders. These come with harmful symptoms that change life as we know it. If you are experiencing any symptoms of depression, anxiety, or another mental disorder, it’s important you talk to a counselor or another medical professional. And if you’d prefer to do this from the comfort of your home, you can do so in an online counseling session at Thriveworks.
  2. Stress: Some people classify stress as a normal part of life, and while that might be true, that doesn’t mean that it isn’t harmful. When stress sticks around, it can make life very unpleasant and wreak havoc on our mental health. If you’re feeling stressed, consider talking about it with an online therapist. The act of talking about what you’re feeling and experiencing can be stress-relieving in itself. 
  3. Relationship issues or conflicts: It is also common to have problems or conflicts in our relationships: those with our romantic partners, our family members, and our friends. Sometimes, these problems can spin out of control or be difficult to talk about. If this is true for you, consider working with an online counselor who has specific skills working with couples and/or families. They can guide tough, yet important conversations and help you get to a healthier place in your relationships.

Are you showing symptoms of a mental illness? Are you feeling stressed in your personal or professional life? Are you encountering issues or conflicts in your relationships with your loved ones? Have you run into another mental health problem? If you answered yes to any of these questions, please consider reaching out to Thriveworks in Jersey City, NJ. We’re here to provide you with help and support.
