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 La Habra, 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.

Need more help deciding?

The author Roy T. Bennett once stated, “Do not set aside your happiness. Do not wait to be happy in the future. The best time to be happy is always now.” Humans tend to procrastinate and put off their self-care. For example, diets tend to start next Monday, after the indulgent weekend. Vacations will happen after some vague milestone at work. Important books get read after first watching the binge-worthy TV. But what’s stopping us from being happy right this second? Isn’t it a frame of mind? Mindfulness experts say it is. Okay, so let’s learn to be mindful. Tomorrow. Or maybe next month after the house sells, or after someone graduates, or after the divorce is finalized…

You don’t have to delay self-care. You can do something now, in the moment, that represents tiny progress toward your goals. And if even those small steps are overwhelming, a professional counselor may be able to help you identify your roadblocks. You can call Thriveworks in La Habra, CA and see a licensed, insightful counselor as early as tomorrow in a comprehensive online session.

Is Online Counseling as Effective as In-Person Counseling?

So far all the scientific data indicates that online counseling is just as effective as in-person counseling. Many people have made the shift from traditional therapy to online counseling because of the following reasons:

  • Online therapy sessions can save time and money. Clients can do them from home in the evening, without having to hire babysitters or take time off work.  
  • They can offer more scheduling options for appointments. Some clients at Thriveworks in La Habra, CA even meet with their therapist on weekends. 
  • They can facilitate family therapy or couples therapy by allowing everyone to video conference rather than gathering everyone in the same place at the same time.  
  • They allow clients to talk comfortably about sensitive topics from their own familiar surroundings. 
  • They permit clients to meet with their mental health providers even if they’re traveling for work or pleasure. 
  • They’re super secure and HIPAA-compliant so clients can safeguard their privacy.
  • They allow clients to meet with their therapists even if they’re ill or have mobility issues. 
  • Clients can meet with their therapists even if they’re experiencing acute symptoms of anxiety or depression, making it hard to leave home.
  • They enable people in rural communities to access the premium mental health services they deserve.

Can Anyone Call Themselves an Online Therapist and See Clients?

Before you commit to online counseling, you need to make sure that you’re booking a session with a fully licensed therapist or counselor.
