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 Pflugerville, TX 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?

Online counseling is a valuable mental health service that is gaining traction. Though it’s been around for decades, it has evolved and its value is being realized by people all over the world. Online therapy got its start as mental health hotlines and online mental health discussion boards. Today, it includes individualized help from a licensed, caring professional. So, if you think you could benefit from a mental health professional’s skills, tools, experience, and training, consider online counseling.

In addition to the traditional in-person counseling approach, Thriveworks Pflugerville, TX offers online therapy by phone and video. Our therapists are happy to help you in phone counseling sessions or video counseling sessions—you get to pick which one you’d like to utilize. Either way, to schedule your appointment, just call (512) 955-3074. Our scheduling team will get you scheduled. We can also talk to you more about what online counseling involves.

Phone Counseling, Video Counseling: How Do They Work?

If you decide to work with an online counselor, you’ll get to choose which virtual medium you’d like to utilize! You’ll have two options: you can work with an online counselor in phone counseling or video counseling. If you choose the first of the two, your therapist will call you at the start of your session. If you choose the second, you’ll be sent a link, which you’ll click at the time of your session to join your videoconference. That’s all it takes!

Online therapy is an effective, valuable mental health service. Research shows that people of all backgrounds have found benefits in online counseling. These individuals find that phone counseling and/or video counseling allows them to make progress with a therapist, just as they would in in-person counseling. On that same note, some people find that they’re able to make even more progress in online counseling because they feel more comfortable or even less stressed. That said, some people do find that they prefer in-person counseling, and that’s quite alright too.

What Are Online Counseling Benefits? How Can It Help Me?

Mary lives in a small town and knows everybody by name. While she loves this small town dynamic, unfortunately, it means that she can’t find a counselor nearby whom she doesn’t know on a personal level. John works a demanding job from 8 to 5, Monday-Friday. By the time he’s off work, the local counseling office is no longer open and he doesn’t have time to go on. His lunch break. On top of that, he’s looking for a counselor with specific experience working with LGBTQ clients.

These two individuals could find great value in working with an online therapist. Mary could find a therapist online who is not from her small town, who can therefore provider with that nonjudgmental help and support. And John can find a counselor online with a background in LGBTQ and who offers evening or weekend appointments. In summary, online counseling comes with many benefits and fills that gap for many clients. Thriveworks Pflugerville online counseling provides the following:

  • Convenient and comfortable care
  • Greater accessibility and flexibility
  • Tried and true services
  • Affordability

In addition to being a convenient and comfortable counseling option, online counseling offers people greater accessibility and flexibility. For example, you’ll have greater accessibility to counselors with the right skills and experience to help you. You’ll also be more likely to have flexible scheduling options like evening and weekend sessions. Finally, you’ll experience the efficacy of online counseling and you’ll enjoy affordability. Many insurances now pay for online counseling. Additionally, Thriveworks Pflugerville offers affordable self-pay options.

I have used many different counselors in different cities/states and I have had a phenomenal experience with Deissy Rosenbaum. She has helped with a broad range of issues from cultural assimilation to ADHD to reprocessing childhood trauma through a unique method of EMDR therapy. Because I had her support, I not only made it through a tough year (2020) but am thriving and have made progress in so many areas of my life.

I have been seeing therapists for about 20 years now, with little success. Until I met with Deissy Rosenbaum. It is obvious to me that Deissy deeply cares about my well-being; she combines complex techniques that I have never seen before, resulting in remarkable success. I have been able to remember things from my youth that were long suppressed, and feel much more whole inside. She is very humble, but her talents are quite impressive. I would describe her as patient, soft-spoken, and sensitive to my feelings. I could particularly see her working well with children, and in reality, getting in touch with my inner child was part of what really helped me. She is very easy to talk to, and I’m really happy I found her.

Words cannot express how awesome Grichell is!! I’ve seen a few therapists in my life, and by far she has been the only one to quickly figure out a way to explain things to me that make sense. There’s never any judgement, only direct advice and counsel that has helped me so much. I actually enjoy and look forward to my time with her! If you are told she has no openings, just know, she is well worth the wait in line.

I had the pleasure of using Alison Riley for my councilor. She's absolutely wonderful! She made me feel comfortable right away, which isn't the easiest thing to do. I was able to see things that I had closed myself off to for the longest, and she was even willing to have some of people I needed to talk to there so it was a neutral environment. I truly appreciate all the support she's provided. I feel like I'm much calmer now and much less anxious. Thank you so much, Alison!

I've had the privilege of working with Veronica and I'm truly grateful for her. It was the first time I felt accepted for who I am and comfortable to speak my truth. She has a very warm and accepting spirit that makes you feel at ease. The atmosphere is inviting and calm that's filled with a sense of peace. I will always recommend Veronica at Thrive Works and thankful for this experience!
