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 Montgomery, AL 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?

The psychiatrist Carl Jung once stated, “I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.” Unfortunately, it’s difficult to become who you want to become without confronting your past. When you stop avoiding what happened to you and face yourself in a compassionate and supportive environment, incredible things can happen. Sometimes the first step toward the mirror can be the hardest one. That’s where Thriveworks can help.

Online mental health counseling at Thriveworks in Montgomery, AL doesn’t cut corners just because it’s virtual. Thriveworks online talk therapy sessions are full-length and full quality.

Each session and treatment plan is individualized for the needs and goals of the client. Thriveworks counselors are insightful, experienced, and highly qualified. 

What Do Mental Health Professionals Think About Online Therapy?

Mental health professionals tend to give online therapy the same high approval ratings as therapy clients do. Therapists enjoy the scheduling flexibility that virtual sessions afford. For example, Thriveworks clients and counselors can meet on evenings and weekends. They’re not beholden to office hours in Montgomery, AL. In addition, online counseling sessions have been proven in study after study to be just as effective and powerful as in-person therapy sessions. Live chats via videoconferencing incorporate body language and eye contact, so providers and their clients can both make use of nonverbal communication. And some licensed counselors find that talking to their clients in an environment that’s familiar to them can help them open up emotionally. They may also appreciate these additional benefits of online therapy: 

  • They can facilitate group therapy sessions by allowing everyone to video conference from different locations rather than physically gather in the same place at the same time.  
  • They permit clients to meet with their providers even if they’re traveling. 
  • They enable therapy sessions even if someone is ill or has mobility issues. 
  • Clients can still meet with their therapists even if they’re experiencing acute mental health symptoms that make it difficult to leave home.
  • They enable clients in rural communities to access premium mental health services from Thriveworks providers.
