Online Counseling Services in Massachusetts—Telephone and Video Counseling Options
When you aren’t feeling well—say, you have a fever, you’ve developed a bad cough, you’ve fallen and hurt yourself—what can you do? You can go to the doctor or you can try to remedy your sickness or injury at home. OR, you can do both—you can combine your doctor’s treatment with a little self-care.
There are many similarities in taking care of your mental health. When you aren’t feeling well mentally—say, you’re struggling after a breakup, you are grieving the loss of a loved one, or you’re feeling extra stressed lately—what can you do? You can go to a counselor or another mental health professional or you can try to work through your challenge(s) yourself. OR, you can do both—you can combine your counselor’s guidance and support with self-care.

Our physical and mental health are equally important. If you start to feel mentally or emotionally unwell, you should consider seeing a professional. For some, this is intimidating or out of their comfort zone, when it comes to mental health counseling. If this describes you, explore online counseling opportunities. This is the more comfortable, convenient way to work with a mental health professional. Thriveworks Counseling in Massachusetts is proud to offer online counseling, by phone and video. You can schedule an appointment using our online booking widget or call us to find out more.
Does Online Counseling Really Work? How?
If you have reservations about online counseling, you’re probably wondering, “Does it really work? And if so, how?” Yes, online counseling really works! The only major difference between the traditional in-person counseling approach and the less conventional online counseling approach is that the latter is conducted in a virtual environment. Here at Thriveworks Counseling, we have two effective virtual options: telephone and video counseling.
Both telephone and video counseling prove to help people—they find just as much (if not more) success in their online work as they would in-person. Now, if you’re wondering if there’s a better option out of the two, it comes down to personal preference. Some people would prefer not to see their counselor face-to-face (which makes online counseling appealing to these individuals). If this is you, telephone counseling is the route to take. If, on the other hand, you are interested in that face-to-face engagement, video counseling is the better option for you.
Either way, meeting with your online counselor is simple. They’ll either call you at the time of your appointment or you’ll join the video chat room at the time of your session, depending on which option you have chosen!
What Types of Therapy Are Offered Online at Thriveworks?
As we’ve said before, the only major difference between in-person and online counseling is the environment that this work is taking place in. This means that you can find many of the same counseling services in online counseling!

- Family therapy
