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 Newark, NJ 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?

Imagine: You just found out that the promotion you thought you were going to get went to someone else. Then your mom calls to tell you that your dad just broke his hip and is going into surgery tomorrow. Yesterday, your life was much different and today, things couldn’t get worse. You have always had a hard time dealing with difficult emotions and want to speak to a therapist, but you don’t have time to drive to an appointment. You wish there was an option that fit your needs. Luckily, there is.

On particularly rough days, when I’m sure I can’t possibly endure, I like to remind myself that my track record for getting through bad days so far is 100% and that’s pretty good. –Unknown

What Is Online Counseling? How Does It Work?

Despite what you may think, online counseling has been around for many years. It is designed to provide clients with reliable, effective mental health care virtually from anywhere. If you are interested in online therapy, you have a couple options to choose from: phone or video chat.

Going on vacation but still want to fit in your appointment? We have you covered. Whenever works best for you, works for us.
  • It’s reliable: You don’t have to worry about pesky outside factors like weather, traffic, or running late at work. Online counseling is never too far away.
  • It’s effective: Some might assume that online counseling might not be as effective as traditional in-person therapy but that isn’t the case. Some might even say that online therapy is more However, that’s not to say that either option will not provide the same meaningful progress. Some of our clients just feel more at ease and can open up more when speaking to their counselor virtually.
