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 Peoria, AZ 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.

Peoria Online Counseling—See a Virtual Therapist in AZ

Thanks to technological advancements, online counseling is a viable option today for those wishing to get help for mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders. We spend more and more of our time online, from services like shopping and banking to even catching up with friends. Counseling services have followed this trend and allow you to speak to a licensed mental health professional without having to step foot outside your door.

At Thriveworks Counseling in Peoria, AZ, we don’t believe anything should stand in the way of getting the mental health services you need to achieve a healthier balance in your life. If you’re interested in online therapy, it’s easier than ever to get started.

What Types of Therapy Are Offered Online?

You might be wondering how online therapy services compare to in-person, traditional therapy. Since therapy is largely based on communication between a client and a therapist, many clients find both types of therapy to be equally effective.

You can receive the following services online:

  • Family therapy and child therapy
  • Marriage counseling and couples therapy
  • Depression therapy and anxiety therapy
  • Life coaching and career counseling
  • PTSD counseling and trauma therapy
  • Stress and anger management
  • Eating disorder counseling
  • Grief and loss counseling
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)

Virtual therapy isn’t just offered for individuals, either. If you’re looking for a marriage and family therapist and are trying to coordinate therapy with others, online therapy can be a much more convenient option.

The Benefits of Online Therapy

If you’re facing a mental illness like anxiety or depression, it can be very difficult to take the first step towards getting help, even if you know it’s necessary. The thought of opening up about personal issues and experiences can be daunting enough, not to mention the idea of fighting traffic on a regular basis to get to your appointments. Some clients may simply be unable to visit in person due to transportation limitations, physical illness, or disability.

Virtual therapy takes much of the stress out of seeking help for mental health issues. Starting your session is as easy as opening a live video chat. Some people simply have an easier time opening up to a therapist when they are in a comfortable place like their home. Some clients find that therapy appointments by video chat allow them to create deeper relationships with their therapists than they would by phone calls alone. Psychiatrists and counselors also note that video chats allow them to see nonverbal communication cues to help them get a more complete picture.

I have worked with Melissa in a professional capacity and have watched her increased ability to work with clients with many different needs. During one phase of Melissa's professional experience, she lead a group therapy practice. Many people traveled great distances in the metropolitan Phoenix area, specifically to attend her group. Melissa is insightful and organized as she compassionately helps guide clients toward their ultimate goal of recovery and health.

I am a colleague of Melissa Bowen's and she is a warm and compassionate counselor who is very passionate about her calling. I believe that we are called by God to share our God-given gifts with others and Melissa's gifts are her ability to meet her clients where they are in life and to offer insight and empathy and to provide guidance through difficult and sometimes painful situations and to help them realize that they all have worth and value in God's eyes and are accepted no matter what our circumstances.
