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 Nottingham, MD 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?

Counseling can help us manage the stress that weighs us down after a difficult week or month at work. Counseling can help us navigate difficult conversations with our partners and resolve the problems in our relationships. Counseling can help us better understand why we feel the way that we do and how we can best channel or communicate those emotions. Counseling can help us with virtually any mental health problem or challenge we are met with.

Counseling, paired with doing what you can to care for your mind and body—be it eating right, exercising, or splurging on a large pizza, depending on the day—can help you find utmost happiness and success in your life.

Sometimes self-care is exercising and eating right. Sometimes, it’s spending time with loved ones or taking a nap. And sometimes it’s watching an entire season of TV in one weekend while you lounge around in your pajamas. Whatever soothes your soul. –Nanea Hoffman

If you’re interested in becoming the very best version of yourself, consider working with a mental health professional. Counselors, therapists, and life coaches alike can help you work through your personal challenges and achieve your greatest goals.

Are you interested in pursuing mental health help? If so, consider working with one of our online counselors at Thriveworks in Nottingham, MD. These professionals will help, guide, and support you over the phone or video chat.

In-Person Counseling vs. Online Counseling

Online counseling is a simple (yet effective) alternative to the traditional in-person counseling approach. The former option means visiting your counselor at their office for your session(s). The latter option is all about receiving the help you’re looking for in an online environment, removing traveling to the office from the equation.

Some people are hesitant to begin online counseling because they worry that it won’t prove as effective as in-person counseling. We want to assure you that if the virtual counseling environment appeals to you, you shouldn’t let this fear stop you. Multiple studies have shown that online counseling is just as effective as in-person counseling, which means it has just as much potential to help you!

Now, if you do try online counseling and decide that it isn’t for you, that’s completely okay. You can always go back to the traditional in-person counseling approach. Thriveworks Counseling is happy to accommodate your needs and preferences.

Online Counseling Opportunities at Thriveworks Counseling in Nottingham, MD

Thriveworks Counseling offers two primary online counseling options: telephone counseling and video counseling. Both of these options permit our clients to work closely with their provider from a distance! Here are a few things to consider, in choosing which option you would like to pursue:

  • Phone counseling is perhaps the simpler, more flexible option
  • Video counseling offers a face-to-face element
  • Phone counseling removes the face-to-face feature from counseling
  • Video counseling might require greater preparation

Let’s talk a little bit about each point above. First, phone counseling might prove to be the simpler, more flexible option, especially if you predict having to attend your appointment on the go or if you’d prefer not to attend your session via a virtual video chat room. Second, video counseling offers that face-to-face element, so if that is a priority, video counseling might be the right option for you. Third, phone counseling does not offer that face-to-face interaction; if this is preferable, phone counseling might be the better of the two options! Finally, video counseling might require greater preparation, as you’ll have to get your laptop, or another device set up ahead of time.

I tried to call billing; I missed an evening telehealth appointment because of a widespread power outage from the massive storms of 1/9/2024. Offshore personnel had no idea what I was talking about; they said they were in the Phillippines, and in addition the language barrier was quite severe. Health professionals here are wonderful to work with; however, technical or financial issues are difficult to straighten out. I gave up and will just deal with the treating persons here.
