Peoria Online Counseling—See a Virtual Therapist in AZ

Peoria Online Counseling—See a Virtual Therapist in AZ

Many people struggling with mental illness don’t get the care they need. You might fall into this category as well, knowing that you want to prioritize your mental health but not scheduling an appointment yet.

Perhaps speaking to a therapist feels like an intimidating idea to you. Or maybe there are other barriers that have prevented you from visiting a licensed counselor, such as a lack of transportation, a busy schedule, or a physical disability.

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.

These are a few of the services we offer when it comes to virtual counseling:

  • 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.

Online counseling can help whether you’ve suddenly encountered a major crisis in your life or you’ve been struggling for years with a mental health issue like depression or anxiety. The guidance you need to overcome many of life’s challenges can be found at Thriveworks Counseling in Peoria, AZ.

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 answering your phone or 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.

However, some clients may not have the internet connection or device required to host a video chat, in which case a phone call may be preferable. Others may simply be more comfortable opening up to a therapist over the phone.

No matter which online therapy tool you prefer, you can be sure to find a qualified online therapist at Thriveworks Counseling in Peoria, AZ. If you’re struggling with mental or emotional health issues, consider giving us a call to schedule an appointment.

You will be in good hands with Melissa Bowen, LCSW

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.
