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 Providence, RI 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?

Many people forego scheduling an appointment, be it with a doctor, a dentist, or a counselor, because it is inconvenient:

  • Finding a time to attend the appointment is inconvenient. 
  • Taking time off of work to attend the appointment is inconvenient. 
  • And commuting to the office to attend the appointment is inconvenient.

Telehealth eliminates these barriers and makes these necessary appointments convenient. Online appointments mean greater flexibility in scheduling. Often, providers have sooner availability and availability in evenings as well as on weekends. This then means that you also don’t have to worry about taking time off of work to attend your appointment or commuting to the office. 

If you would like to talk to a mental health professional, but you’ve put it off because the process felt too inconvenient, consider online therapy. Online therapy is a convenient, flexible, and comfortable way to get mental health help.

Are There Online Options for Therapy?

We’ve already addressed this question and the answer, of course, is yes. But we want to detail the online therapy options offered at Thriveworks Counseling in Providence, RI. 

Here at Thriveworks, we offer our clients two main online therapy options. These include telephone sessions and video sessions. Both of these options are an effective, convenient way to work with a mental health counselor or licensed psychologist.

We leave it up to our clients to choose which way they’d like to meet with their provider. If you aren’t sure whether you’d prefer to meet with a counselor in telephone or video sessions, read more about the two below:

  • How do telephone sessions work? Telephone sessions are the easiest way to meet with your counselor with the least hassle. Instead of traveling to the office to meet with your provider, you’ll simply answer their call at your scheduled session time.
  • How do video sessions work? Video sessions are another option for people who want to do online therapy. This is a great option for those who would like that face-to-face interaction and prefer online counseling to be as close to in-person counseling as possible. 

Telephone and video conferencing sessions are viable options for people who want to try online therapy. Thriveworks is happy to offer these online counseling services, and we’d love to connect you with an online counselor today.

Vivian provides a welcoming conversational space for exchange. She is able to listen with genuine care and when the time is right give feedback that is both empathetic and constructive. If I have to share a problem with her that might be difficult to share with even a close friend, I feel she is able to help coach me along with a patient reassurance that my thoughts and feelings will be considered without judgment. There may not always be a direct or immediate answer to what I’m working through but she is able to encourage healthy thought-habits and emotional strategies which help me to progress. I really appreciate her respectful frame of mind and down-to-earth personality, they make talking with her worthwhile.
