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 Long Beach, 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?

If you’ve been struggling with depression, anxiety, or another mental health issue, chances are that you’ve thought about getting help but something got in the way. Maybe you lack reliable transportation or you weren’t sure if your symptoms were serious enough to warrant the commute each week. Perhaps the idea of visiting a counseling center felt intimidating or embarrassing. Or maybe it’s simply been difficult to fit in-person therapy appointments into your busy schedule.

One of the biggest tragedies is that most forms of mental illness are highly treatable but many people never seek out professional help. As a result, they end up suffering unnecessarily for months or even years on end.

Online therapy makes it easy to get access to essential mental health services without stepping foot in an office. You don’t need to figure out transportation or worry about a commute. You can simply speak to a licensed Thriveworks therapist or counselor over the phone or by video chat, whichever you prefer.

When you’re dealing with a mental health disorder, even the smallest things can feel overwhelming. With remote counseling, we make the process of finding a therapist and getting help as stress-free as possible. Reach out to us today at Thriveworks Counseling in Long Beach, CA to schedule your first online therapy appointment.

What Can I Expect From Online Therapy?

With online therapy at Thriveworks, getting help really is as simple as answering your phone or opening a video chat window. Some people prefer video sessions to get face-to-face interaction with their therapist. This can help foster a more comfortable relationship and allow your therapist to pick up on nonverbal cues during your conversations.

However, there may be reasons to pick phone calls over video. Not everyone has a quiet place in their home to take a private conversation and may prefer to do so while walking. Others may not have a reliable internet connection or may simply be more comfortable opening up to a licensed mental health professional about their issues over the phone.

Whichever option you choose, online therapy makes it easier to get the mental health counseling you need. Talk therapy options such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), exposure therapy, and psychotherapy can be just as effective remotely as they are in-person. The major difference is that it’s much easier to schedule an appointment when it’s convenient for you.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
