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 New Orleans, LA 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.

Many people interested in exploring the benefits of meeting with a licensed mental health professional can’t seem to fit traditional therapy sessions into their busy schedules. And others find meeting with someone in person to be more daunting than joining a face-to-face video chat.

If you’re wondering how to find online therapy in New Orleans, LA, Thriveworks has you covered. At Thriveworks in New Orleans, LA, we take pride in offering convenient online therapy that works for you. We also offer in-person sessions to those who prefer them. 

Types of Online Counseling Services

Online therapy is very similar to in-person therapy. Whether you are grieving the loss of a loved one, living with depression, or dealing with something else entirely, speaking to a virtual therapist or counselor virtually can help you address your concerns and get your life back on track.

At Thriveworks, we offer the following services in online sessions (as well as in person):

  • Anger and stress management: This psycho-therapeutic program allows you to learn more about feelings of frustration and how to work through them productively with the help of a compassionate and skilled therapist or counselor.
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT): CBT aims to improve mental health by focusing on the underlying causes of emotional challenges and providing coping strategies. People who undergo CBT learn how to adjust negative or distorted thinking patterns that may be worsening their symptoms.
  • Depression and anxiety therapy: If you’re experiencing prolonged unhappiness or anxiety that interferes with your daily life, therapy for depression or anxiety can help you regain a sense of control over your emotions.
  • Family therapy: Family therapy is a form of psychotherapy specializing in improving communication and resolving interpersonal conflicts between loved ones.
  • Grief and loss counseling: Therapy for coping with grief and loss aims to help people understand and process the physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and cognitive responses to loss.
  • Life coaching and career counseling: Severe mental health concerns aren’t the only reason to reach out. Life coaches may help strengthen your confidence, introduce you to new opportunities, and present the best version of yourself at work and in your personal life.
  • Marriage and couples counseling: Marriage and couples therapy combines individual and paired sessions to assist couples in communicating better, being vulnerable, and setting healthy boundaries.
  • PTSD counseling and trauma therapy: If you constantly relive an event from your past or have panic attacks triggered by certain environments, PTSD counseling can help treat these issues using therapy, prescribed medication, or a combination of the two.

When you’re ready to address your concerns, consider working with one of our licensed counselors or therapists at Thriveworks in New Orleans, LA. Thriveworks offers both in-person and online counseling options, so you can choose what works best for you. Schedule your first session online or call for matching assistance.

Prior to your scheduled appointment time, you will receive a link to a video chat room. Once it’s time for your appointment, simply click on the link to join the call and speak with your online therapist or counselor.

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.
