If you pause to think about it, most of our day-to-day life can be accomplished online. We order food, clothes, household items all with the click of a mouse. It makes things pretty simple, especially when you’re not forced to leave the house in order to find the things you need to live comfortably.
But what about mental health services? If you’ve never attended a therapy session before, online therapy might sound a little strange. Therapy sessions are supposed to happen in a quiet room somewhere, right? And they’re conducted by someone in glasses while you lounge on a long sofa… Not quite.
Online therapy is therapy for the modern age. It’s easy, fast, reliable, and most importantly, effective. If therapy is something you’ve been curious about, but felt too unsure to follow through with, consider scheduling a virtual session with Thriveworks in Pearland, TX.
Online Therapy: A Convenient, Effective Approach to Mental Health Care
No one knows your story like you do; our mental health professionals will listen to your experiences and provide a plan for treatment that can help you address your challenges. They will also be sure to design a plan for care that fits your life and schedule—they’re not going to judge. However, we still know that one of the biggest hurdles to therapy is the ability to open up to another person about the battle you’ve been carrying inside.
We’ve made the process easier by having a team of scheduling specialists greet you over the phone. They assist with:
- Finding the right therapist
- Scheduling an appointment that works with your schedule
- Finding the best payment option for you (we take most major insurance plans)
Even with all these perks, we get that it’s still uncomfortable for many to sit down and talk about what’s going on in their life. But there’s no cause for alarm; our Pearland, TX team of therapists and other mental health professionals has the knowledge and compassion to walk you through this process.
Online Psychiatrists and Psychologists in Pearland, TX
Our clients work with a variety of mental health providers, including psychiatrists and psychologists. Though these titles sound similar (and in a lot of ways they are), these mental health professionals have pretty different jobs. For starters, psychiatrists are actually medical doctors; they’ve been to medical school, and they can prescribe medication to assist their clients in dealing with more serious emotional and behavioral disorders.
Psychiatrists help clients cope and manage conditions like:
- Bipolar disorder
- Major and minor depression
- Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)
If it sounds like connecting with one of the psychiatrists would be beneficial, you’ll be pleased to know that many of our clients enjoy interacting with their psychiatrist online. There are many reasons in-person care isn’t ideal for certain individuals, but the main ones include:
- Living too far from their provider’s physical location
- Busy schedules that don’t usually allow for commuting to a provider’s office
- Family obligations, like taking care of aging parents or watching after younger children
- Anxiety based around an in-person appointment
Psychologists, on the other hand, might have doctorates in psychology or another field, but they aren’t medical personnel. Though their roles and approaches may vary, a psychologist can help clients with more general (but still important) issues like the death of a loved one, relationship troubles, family problems, and symptoms of mental health disorders like anxiety. For those who opt for couples or family counseling, online therapy makes it easier for you and your loved ones to find time to prioritize the connections that you share.
Whatever your reason for choosing online therapy, you can be assured that it will be safe, and secure. Thriveworks is completely compliant with APA and HIPAA regulations surrounding client privacy rights. Protecting your information is of utmost importance to us, and we value the trust you place in Thriveworks to handle your mental health needs.
