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 North Charleston, SC 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?

It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life. We run through the motions, hurrying to and from work, wrestling with bills, cranking out chores, and getting in some time for friends, family, and/or pleasure when we can. But where and when do we make time for ourselves? Where is the self-care, the stress management, the therapeutic practices that keep us sane?

For many people, the answer is, “I work it in when I can,” or even, “I’m fine without it.” But in reality, it’s important that we prioritize these practices that benefit our mental health and overall wellbeing—one practice being working with a therapist. We understand that fitting a therapy session into your schedule might sound impossible. But Thriveworks North Charleston, SC has an option for you to consider: online therapy counseling.

Online counseling allows you to work with a therapist via online means. You can choose to attend your session via telephone, video chat, or even email. You pick the option that is the most convenient for you, and we’ll do the rest. If you’re interested in online therapy at Thriveworks North Charleston, SC (or another form of therapy), just give us a call. We’ll be here to get you scheduled or talk with you about your options.

North Charleston Counseling: What Is Online Therapy?

As we just mentioned, people struggle to fit everything they need to fit into their schedules. And often, therapy gets pushed to the backburner because of this problem. Well, online therapy is the solution. You don’t have to worry about going out of your way to make it to the therapy office to attend your appointment. Instead, you can work with your therapist online! Here are your online therapy options:

  1. Work with an online therapist via telephone: One option is to work with your therapist over the phone. Just as with in-person therapy, you will schedule an exact day, time, and timeslot, to work with your therapist. Just make sure you’re able to answer their call when the time comes!
  2. Work with an online therapist via video chat: Another option is to work with your online therapist in a videoconference or video chat. Again, you will set a day, time, and amount of time to work with your therapist. And again, you’ll have to make sure that you’re available to jump into the video chat when the time comes (this, of course, requires Wi-Fi or service).
  3. Work with an online therapist via email: A third option is for those looking for a more casual therapy option. Email therapy is done via email or chat widget and involves messaging your therapist back and forth over a flexible timeframe.

Do any of the above online therapy options sound like they would work for you and your schedule? Call Thriveworks North Charleston, SC to schedule your appointment or hear more about it.

4 Great Reasons to Try Online Therapy

If you’re still getting used to the idea of online therapy, consider the following reasons many people decide to work with their therapist online versus in-person:

  1. It’s convenient: As we’ve already touched on, online therapy allows you to attend your therapy session from the convenience of your own home!
  2. It’s comfortable: This means that online therapy is a comfortable option, too. If you can attend your session from your home, you can attend from in bed, on the couch, and even in your PJs!
  3. It’s effective: Research shows that online therapy proves effective and beneficial for many individuals with a range of challenges.
  4. It’s affordable: Finally, online therapy is affordable. In fact, a lot of insurance companies now cover online therapy counseling services. And even if yours does not, Thriveworks North Charleston, SC has affordable rates to offer.

I have been seeing a therapist via Thriveworks every other week for several months and I couldn't be happier. The intake form was easy to fill out and somehow managed to put me with someone who works perfectly with me. She works at my pace, she understands and works towards our goals, and she helps me to see things more clearly as we process the issues at hand. She never 'tells me' what the issue is or how to solve but instead she leads me there so I can see it on my own as that is much more effective. I was very nervous about online therapy but after this experience with Kristen, I would recommend it to everyone, regardless of the severity of their issues. Kristen is a true professional and can ebb and flow as I am ready to process things. She has been a game changer for me, my family, and my colleagues.

I am a survivor of childhood trauma. I've struggled with depression most of my life. Emily Frichtl has helped me in so many ways. I felt safe with her and over time I learned to trust her, which was hard for me. I still have a lot of work to do in learning to live with the things I've been through but I wouldn't be in a more accepting head space without the work we've done. I highly recommend her.

I have worked with Jennifer Brown for a number of years and have found her to be caring, compassionate, and conscientious. She has an empathetic personality and truly cares for her clients and wants what is best for them. One of her greatest skills is her ability to ask "the right question" to help you find YOUR correct answer. Her support during the time my Mom was passing helped me get through a very difficult time. No hesitancy in recommending.
