What is your go-to approach for online therapy?

My go-to approach for helping people in online therapy is client-centered and cognitive behavioral therapy. I enjoy letting the client lead the session since, they are the expert in the room on what is happening with them, and then finding a road map in cognitive behavioral therapy to guide us to their better life.

What tools do you teach in online therapy?

I teach the following tools in online therapy:

  • Mindfulness
  • Self-compassion
  • Unconditional positive regard
  • Acceptance of where they are and who they are
  • The cognitive triangle

How do you know when a client is making meaningful progress in online therapy?

I know a client is making meaningful progress in online therapy when they ask to reduce the number of sessions in a month.

What can clients do in their personal time to supplement online therapy?

Clients can supplement their time in online therapy by completing any practices during the week between sessions.

What should someone do to prepare for starting online therapy?

To prepare for your first online therapy session, you can be open to new experiences.

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 Lubbock, 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?

Name a place on the map—Amanda’s been there. As a nature photographer, she’s always been captivated by new views, exotic places, and the customs of the people living there. 

But being a globe traveler isn’t all she thought it would turn out to be. In fact, Amanda sometimes feels pretty run down, jet lag aside. Like most people, she knows depression and anxiety are real disorders that affect people, but she’s not really sure if she has the time or energy to talk with a professional, unless she meets with them online. 

Perhaps you feel the same; and Thriveworks in Lubbock, TX would like to help change your mind. One of the ways we make mental health care accessible to everyone is through our online therapy and counseling services. 

Even if you’re not getting stamps in your passport as frequently as Amanda, that doesn’t mean that you can’t benefit from counseling or therapy sessions that are convenient, secure, and private. Plus, we offer in-person therapy sessions too, if you prefer them.

My counselor has been very helpful, helping me to cope with infidelity within my 29yr marriage. Having an unbiased individual to speak to, helps to see things a lil differently. I will continue with my counselor through thrive works as it is convenient for me to have sessions through zoom.
