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 Milford, CT 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.

New Haven Therapy: What Is Online Therapy Like? What Are My Options?

Online therapy counseling is just like in-person therapy, except it is conducted over the phone or internet. You can choose to work with your online therapist or internet therapist via phone call, video chat, or email. The online therapists at Thriveworks are full licensed, in addition to skilled, knowledgeable providers who are eager to help you, regardless of which option you choose:

  1. Online therapy via phone call: Online therapy via phone call is simple. You agree on a set day and time to work with your therapist and then they will call you to get to work during your (commonly) 60-minute or 90-minute session!
  2. Online therapy via video session: Online therapy via video chat is just like online therapy via phone call. You agree on a set day and time to work with your therapist and then join them in the chat room for your session.
  3. Email or chat therapy: This third option is a little different. Instead of picking a specific time frame to chat with your therapist, you will email or chat with them over an extended period of time. This is much like emailing or instant messaging anyone else!

Many find that online therapy is the right option for them, due to its convenience. If you struggle to make it to appointments due to your busy schedule, online therapy counseling might be right for you.

Work with an Online Therapist: What Are the Benefits?

If you are unfamiliar with online therapy, you might be curious as to the benefits of this less conventional therapy approach. Here are a couple of main reasons why people choose to work with online therapists versus in-person therapists:

  • The convenience: It’s hard to pass up the convenience of online counseling therapy. Working with online therapists is convenient, as you can attend your session from anywhere you please, and therefore, easily fit it into your busy schedule. You’ll just need to ensure that you have phone or internet access!
  • The comfortability: Many people also love the comfort that online counseling therapy offers. As we just touched on, you can attend your session from anywhere you please, even the comfort of your couch or bed! In addition, many people feel more comfortable talking with a therapist about their problems via a medium, rather than face-to-face.

Gina is an incredibly skilled and talented clinician. She has the unique gift of making clients immediately feel safe and understood even upon first meeting. Her passion for the work is palpable. Her knowledge is vast and her approach is sensitive, gentle, supportive and compassionate, yet direct. Gina helped me navigate a tremendously challenging time in my life and afforded me the confidence to pursue personal goals that had initially felt unattainable. She taught me tangible skills to navigate anxiety and feelings of overwhelm during our work together and our sessions were always insightful and productive. Gina will lead you on a path to self discovery without all of the therapy lingo and jargon and will always help you to feel as though you’re the expert on your own life- because you are. I couldn’t recommend Gina more. A true diamond in the rough!
