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 Katy, TX 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?

Have you ever been interested in talking to a counselor but you felt uncertain about the process? Do you feel like counseling could make a world of difference for you, but you’ve struggled to find a day or time to go into the office (either because you have a tight schedule or your counselor does)?

If the answer to either (or both) of these questions is yes, we’d like to introduce you to a viable solution: online counseling. Online counseling services enable people to talk to a counselor with greater ease, confidence, and comfort. In addition, it allows individuals to choose from more flexible appointment options, including evening and weekend appointments as well as last-minute sessions.

Thriveworks Counseling has been offering online therapy to our clients for 10+ years. We now have counselors in and around Katy, TX that are conducting telehealth sessions via telephone and video. So, if you reside in Katy, TX or the surrounding area, consider scheduling an appointment with Thriveworks Counseling in Katy, TX. You don’t have to worry about commuting to the office—you can just hop on a call or videoconference.

Would Online Counseling Be a Good Option for Me?

Online counseling is a good option for anybody considering counseling. To start from the very beginning, counseling is meant to help people through their tough mental health challenges and improve their overall lives. This is true for in-person and online counseling.

Online therapy might be an especially good option for you if…

  • You’re struggling to find a counselor nearby with availability
  • You don’t have time to commute to and from the counseling office
  • You’re looking for a more comfortable, convenient counseling option
  • You’d like to remain a larger degree of anonymity in your counseling journey
  • You’re feeling nervous about the idea of talking to a counselor

Online therapy services address these concerns and, as we’ve said many times already, make receiving counseling a more convenient, comfortable journey. You can put the days of calling every local counseling practice, sighing throughout your commute, and heightened nerves behind you.

With online counseling at Thriveworks, you simply talk to your therapists over the phone or video chat. Both of these options will enable you to make important progress with your provider virtually.

What Problems Can Online Therapy Help With?

As we said earlier, both in-person and online counseling help people work through their unique challenges and live better. Therefore, online therapy can help with many problems. Here is a list of common mental health challenges that push people to consider talking to a counselor:

  • Symptoms of mental illness, like depression or anxiety
  • Stress at work, at home, or elsewhere
  • Relationship problems like disagreements and jealousy
  • Parenting challenges or behavioral problems in kids
  • Trauma and PTSD
  • Death or another great loss
  • Self-esteem issues

Do any of the items on this list sound familiar? Are you struggling with other mental health problems that are negatively affecting (or threatening to negatively affect) your life? Online counseling at Thriveworks in Katy, TX is here to help.
