What is your go-to approach for online therapy?

My go-to approach for helping people in online therapy is CBT. I find the best benefit in CBT because it helps people identify how their negative thought patterns influence their feelings and behaviors.

What tools do you teach in online therapy?

I teach the following tools in online therapy:

  • Identify patterns of negative thinking so that they can become aware of how their thoughts impact their feelings and behaviors.
  • Identify how the negative messages given to them from parents, teachers, peers, or other significant people in their lives have impacted their thinking and develop the skills to reframe and replace these negative thoughts.
  • Assertive communication skills.
  • Relaxation techniques.
  • How to be mindful.
  • Problem solving skills.

How do you know when a client is making meaningful progress in online therapy?

I know a client is making meaningful progress when they report a decrease in symptoms as the result of the successful and consistent use of effective coping skills. Also, they indicate an ability to manage situations that they were previously unable to manage.

What can clients do in their personal time to supplement online therapy?

A client can supplement their time in online therapy by documenting situations that trigger irrational thinking, their feelings, and their behaviors. They are then asked to counter their irrational thinking and replace it with rational thoughts. They then indicate how this has decreased uncomfortable thinking.Clients can practice relaxation techniques frequently.Clients can take steps to gradually expose themselves to anxiety-provoking situations.

What should someone do to prepare for starting online therapy?

Clients can prepare for their first online therapy session by considering the goals that they would like to achieve through therapy. They can also identify roadblocks that hinder their ability to reach these goals. They can identify efforts that they have made to cope with uncomfortable feelings.

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 Wyomissing, PA 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.

Telehealth Counseling: What Is It?

Telehealth, or online counseling, utilizes videoconferencing to provide virtual sessions to address medical, physical health, and mental health concerns.  It provides our clients and therapists with the ability to meet via long-distance in real time online through a video chat online. Telehealth counseling can be useful for individual therapy, family therapy, couples therapy, group therapy, coaching, psychoeducation, consultations, feedback, and diagnostic purposes.

How Does Telehealth Counseling Help?

Telehealth counseling is provided during a videoconferencing session in real time.  Telehealth improves access to therapists, improves care continuation, reduces transportation and childcare barriers, brings your therapist to where you are, decreases the wait to receive care, and reduces the stigma surrounding mental health care so you can thrive. Telehealth counseling allows the counselor and client to work together on treatment goals no matter the distance between them.  Telehealth counseling is an effective treatment option for many different counseling concerns including but not limited to mood disorders, depression, anxiety, couples concerns, co-parenting, family therapy, stress related disorders, and more.  Telehealth counseling is convenient, fits easily into your daily life, and improves access to therapists.

What Are Telehealth Counseling Requirements?

Forget the car, forget the gas, in order to participate in telehealth counseling services you will need a computer or tablet or smart phone.  You will also need a reliable internet connection.  You need a room or place you feel comfortable to sit for your appointment. A headset and microphone to keep your session from being heard by others around are optional but may be helpful to you.  In addition, you will need the link to the telehealth platform your counselor provides to you.  Lastly, you will need the time set aside for your designated appointment and the desire to reach your goals.

How Can Thriveworks Reading Help?

At Thriveworks Reading, our therapists have the ability to provide telehealth counseling sessions in each of their respective therapeutic modalities as described in their profiles.  Please note that, typically, many insurance companies do cover telehealth services; however it is important to check with your specific insurance to ensure this is true.  We will work with you to schedule an appointment that fits into your weekly agenda from the convenience of your home or other chosen location. As always we will sit down with you via the telehealth videoconferencing platform.  We will listen to you, show care and concern, address your concerns, and help you work toward your goals.   The treatment interventions and modalities we utilize via telehealth do not differ from those we use in our physical offices.  Telehealth is appropriate for adults, adolescents, and in many cases for children as well.  Many wonder if telehealth is HIPAA compliant and for that reason it is important to note that we here at Thriveworks-Reading utilize a variety of HIPAA compliant videoconferencing telehealth platforms to ensure your trust, confidentiality, and safety.  Call us now to schedule your appointment so you can thrive!

Let’s thrive together from a distance

Sincerely,
Your Team at Thriveworks Reading

I am pleased to have someone I can tell how I am feeling that I would not express to family or friends. The medication helps me to get a better night sleep and helps me feel better the following days and to cope throughout the days that follow.

I'm very fortunate to have gotten such a great Therapist Lauren Lowe. She is a very good listener and helps me with my anxiety. Lauren gives me ideas how to manage the anxiety. I see her every Wednesday afternoon and go over what has happened for the week to help me cope with things I have problems with. I look forward to see her and all the help she has given me. I rate her very highly as a Therapist.

I took my preteen child there, who did not want to go at all and after 1 session my child was willing to go back, reporting the counselor was so nice! I instantly saw a change in my child, we will continue to attend throughout the summer to continue to make progress. When we arrived, I instantly felt comfortable in this calm environment. I recommend this office to anyone.
