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 Reno, NV 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 decide not to visit the doctor, the dentist, or a counselor, because scheduling and attending the appointment is inconvenient. For example:

  • Finding a convenient time to go to the office feels impossible
  • Taking time off of work is impossible or not a good idea
  • Traveling to and from the office takes too much time and hassle

Fortunately, in 2020, telehealth is available for many of these services, including counseling services. If you are interested in working with a counselor but you haven’t been able to do so conveniently, consider online therapy. 

Online therapy removes or lessens these obstacles and makes scheduling as well as attending counseling more convenient. On top of convenience, online counseling services also offer more flexibility. Clients can schedule an appointment immediately and meet with their provider more quickly. 

These individuals also don’t have to worry about taking time off of work for their counseling session because evening and weekend appointments are often available. And, of course, the commute is eliminated with telehealth sessions, too. 

If you’d like to work with a counselor or psychologist, but you haven’t followed through due to inconvenience or lack of flexibility, online counseling is the solution to your problems. This is a convenient and comfortable way to work with a mental health professional.

Thriveworks Counseling in Reno, NV offers online therapy and we can connect you with an online therapist right away. Call us today to get started and begin experiencing all of the premium counseling benefits we have to offer.

Online Therapy Options: How Does It Work?

If you decide to pursue services at Thriveworks Counseling in Reno, NV, there will be online therapy options available to you. We offer two primary means of communicating with your provider virtually: by phone and video.

Both telephone and video sessions enable one to make progress with their licensed mental health professional. However, some people prefer one over the other, either from the get-go or later in their journey. 

If you’re unsure if you’d like to attend telephone or video sessions, read more about these two options here:

  1. Telephone sessions: Telephone sessions are perhaps the easiest way to meet with a mental health professional. You simply answer your provider’s call at your scheduled appointment time.
  2. Video sessions: Video sessions are another easy option, but they do require you to have more advanced technology that allows you to attend a videoconference. This is perhaps the better option for people who would like to talk to their provider “face-to-face.”

Telephone and video sessions are easy, convenient, and effective. Thriveworks is happy to offer both options, and we can get you scheduled for your first telephone or video session now. Just call us to speak with our scheduling team.

What Services Are Offered Online?

The one big difference between in-person and online counseling is the environment in which you meet with them. Obviously, with in-person therapy, you meet with your counselor in-person, but with online therapy, you meet with them in a virtual setting instead.

You can make meaningful progress with your provider either way. Here are a few services that we can offer both in-person and online:

  • Couples therapy and marriage counseling
  • Depression therapy
  • Therapy for anxiety
  • Family therapy
  • Grief and loss counseling
  • Trauma and PTSD counseling
  • Anger counseling
  • Stress management counseling

We are able to offer these services and more, in-person and in a virtual setting. If you are in need of mental health help, please reach out to us. You don’t have to suffer in silence or isolation, we have providers who can help.

Jr Johnson is amazing and has been working with me for the past 8 months - I didn’t even know I made growth until he points it out. This really motivates to do better everyday.
