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 Norfolk, VA 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.

Life is full of laughter, days of sunshine, and lots of love… but life is also cloudy, ugly, and full of conflict. It all depends on the day and there’s nothing you can do to prevent the ups and downs.

You don’t have to let the stressors of life control you. Take back the reigns.

No one is in control of your happiness but you; therefore, you have the power to change anything about yourself or your life that you want to change. –Barbara de Angelis

Just like the quote stated, you have the power to change your situation. Sometimes that can be hard, especially when you have a busy schedule and haven’t prioritized your mental health. However, being healthy mentally is very important and here at Thriveworks Norfolk, our online therapists and counselors want to help you achieve that. Online counseling offers comfort, convenience, flexibility, and more benefits that you don’t always find in traditional in-person counseling.  If you’re going through something and feel like you could benefit from speaking with a counselor, therapist, or coach, reach out to our office today. We’d love to help.

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.
