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 Munster, IN 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?

Do you feel too depressed to get out of bed? Are you experiencing a general sense of unease you can’t shake? Do you find yourself turning to substance abuse or other unhealthy coping habits to tolerate distress?

Mental health struggles are incredibly common, even if they aren’t always talked about. Millions of Americans suffer from mental and emotional disorders like depression and anxiety every year. However, many don’t seek out the professional help they need. Mental health awareness has come a long way in recent years but there is still considerable work to be done.

Traditional therapy sessions conducted in an office setting can be intimidating for many people, particularly if you are already struggling with anxiety. You may feel uncomfortable in public places or might be embarrassed, thinking that you will be judged or recognized by others.

As a society, we take advantage of more and more services online and therapy doesn’t have to be any different. Our online therapy platform serves as a comfortable and convenient option for people who want to access mental health services without stepping foot outside their home.

If you’re interested in speaking to a licensed counselor by phone or video chat, we’re ready to help at Thriveworks Counseling in Munster, IN.

What Types of Therapy Are Offered Online?

Contrary to what you may think, therapy in a virtual setting isn’t much different from traditional, in-person therapy. Many clients find they are able to obtain all the same benefits without having to visit a brick-and-mortar location. It’s also very easy since you only have to answer your phone or follow a link to a video chat room.

Here are some of the most common online therapy services we offer:

  • Anger and stress management
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Marriage counseling and couples therapy
  • PTSD and trauma therapy
  • Family and child therapy
  • Depression and anxiety therapy
  • Loss and grief counseling
  • Career counseling and life coaching

If you’re faced with these or other issues affecting your mental and emotional health, online therapists are standing by to offer compassionate guidance and support at Thriveworks Counseling in Munster, IN.

The Benefits of Online Therapy

At Thriveworks, it’s easier than ever to find a therapist to discuss issues like depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and more. You can choose between phone calls and video chats, depending on your preference and internet accommodation.

Phone calls may be a preferable therapy experience for those intimidated by the idea of face-to-face contact with their counselor. It also allows for more mobility, since you can talk to your therapist while walking or sitting in a quiet park without the need to rely on an internet connection. Phone calls are also a great option for those who lack a device capable of steady video chatting.

Some clients prefer video chats because they find it easier to develop a trusting relationship with their therapist, which is often important for productive therapy sessions. Whichever method you choose, you will likely find that cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) or other forms of talk therapy are just as effective in a remote setting as they are in-person.

Under the guidance of your online therapist, talk therapy empowers you to gain perspective on your thoughts and feelings. Our mental health providers are trained to help you understand how your mental habits, history, and current experiences may be impacting your behavior and emotions. Working with a trained counselor or therapist can help you identify these obstacles and work towards healthier habits that will push you towards your goals.

If you’ve been thinking of getting help with mental health issues but life has gotten in the way, online therapy appointments might be the perfect solution. Reach out today to speak with a licensed mental health professional at Thriveworks Counseling in Munster, IN.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
