Hunter and Demi have been friends for ages. Long enough to have kindergarten photos of them, together with frizzy hair and covered in finger paint. With all the time that they’ve spent together, there’s been more than a few arguments and spats along the way. But like best friends often do, they always find common ground again and things seem to reset once more. But the other night, they found themselves divided over disrespectful comments directed at Hunter from Demi’s partner, David.
With such a personal dispute on their hands, Hunter’s considering whether or not she and her friend could benefit from seeing a mental health professional together. Because of their busy schedules and the recent shift in dynamics, she’s also considering whether they’d benefit from having an online therapist mediate their communication. While she’s not sure if her friend is open to the idea, Hunter sees that mental health services might be a relief to them both.

What Is Online Therapy? Should I Talk to an Online Therapist?
Online therapy is a modern way to connect with a mental health professional. While it’s not the same as waving a magic wand, it’s an effective and convenient way to experience the ways that a therapist can help. Many people often wonder though, is online therapy:
- Safe?: Our online therapy sessions follow APA and HIPAA guidelines to protect your privacy and information. You can rest assured that Thriveworks values your safety and privacy as much as we do your mental health.
