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 specific needs and with whom 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 Lexington, MA 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.

Lexington Counseling: What Is Online Therapy?

Online counseling is the convenient therapy option. It is similar to the in-person therapy approach, except both client and therapist attend the session via virtual means. Sounds simple, doesn’t it? And don’t worry, here at Thriveworks in Lexington, you don’t have to fear whether your online therapist is fully licensed, accredited, and prepared to help you.

  • Video therapy: A second popular therapy option is video therapy. This is similar to phone therapy, only you attend your session via video chat. You must ensure you have service or Wi-Fi access to attend video therapy, too.
  • Email therapy: Your third option is more casual. Email online therapy is done via email or chat. Instead of emailing back and forth for a strict period of time, you’ll do so over a longer, more flexible time period.

4 Reasons to Try Online Therapy

You might still be contemplating your therapy options, from in-person therapy to online therapy. If this is the case, consider the following 4 reasons to try online therapy:

  1. It’s a convenient option: A drawback to counseling or therapy is that it’s another appointment we have to try to fit into our schedules. Not to mention, sometimes we spend more time getting to the appointment than we do working with our therapist. Online therapy offers the perfect solution to this problem
  2. It offers comfort: Online therapy also allows you to work with your therapist or counselor from the comfort of your own home. All you have to do is make sure that you have phone or internet access to attend your therapy session via phone call or video chat. If that’s covered, you can attend your session from home or anywhere else you choose.
  3. It’s effective: Research shows that online therapy, such as phone therapy or video counseling, is beneficial and effective. Additionally, it shows that clients prefer these online therapy options to in-person sessions! They find that they are able to make the same progress with their therapist online as they do in-person.
  4. It’s an affordable option: Did you know that a lot of insurance companies now cover online therapy counseling options? If you know that your insurance doesn’t cover online therapy, don’t worry—Thriveworks Counseling in Lexington, MA has affordable rates.

If you’re looking for a convenient, comfortable, effective, and affordable therapy option, online therapy might be the right option for you. Reach out to Thriveworks to schedule your first appointment.
