These days, we live a lot of our lives online. With the power of an internet connection you can connect with friends from all over the world, take yoga or cooking classes, watch live concerts or shows, and even consult with your doctor.
You can also get access to mental health care from a licensed counselor or therapist through the internet by using online therapy or counseling. Many people deal with stress, sadness, and other emotional disturbances that could benefit from the guidance of a licensed mental health professional. Yet, they might never get help because they’re unsure of how and where they can connect with a professional.
If you’ve been feeling “off” lately and want to talk to one of our licensed professionals, online counseling or therapy could be a great option for you. At Thriveworks Counseling in Medford, OR, we want to make accessing mental health services as easy as possible. Consider calling our office today to schedule a counseling or therapy session.

Getting To Know the Benefits of Online Counseling
One of the most challenging parts of starting therapy is finding a counselor who’s a good match for you. This is someone who understands your needs, who specializes in the type of care that can best help you, and who you get along with. Checking all these boxes can be difficult, especially if there are not many therapy offices in your area.
Finding the right fit can drive you to settle for a counselor that you aren’t 100% happy with or deal with the difficulties of a long commute to get the help you need. For some people who have limited access to reliable transportation, this inconvenience can keep them from getting support at all.
Online therapy and counseling eliminate the need for a commute and allows for greater availability of when you and your therapist can meet. For instance, if you had to drive to an office you might not want to schedule your appointments at 7 p.m. on Wednesday — during rush hour. This is a consideration that you don’t have to worry about when scheduling with online mental health providers. If 7 p.m. on Wednesdays is the best time for you and your schedule, then that’s when you can meet with your counselor! We also offer weekend sessions to best suit your schedule.
In addition to added convenience, online counseling can be the perfect option for those nervous to meet with their therapist in person. If you prefer more privacy, meeting via phone can be preferable to going into an office with a waiting room. For those who still want face-to-face interaction, video calls can replicate the feel of a traditional therapy appointment while providing the ease of meeting online.
Whatever option you choose, our online counselors and therapists in Medford, OR are here to help you through the challenges you’re facing and empower you to create positive change in your life.
