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 specific needs and with whom 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 Riverside, OH 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.

Lady Gaga is one of entertainment’s biggest stars who seemingly has it all. She’s earned global recognition for her flamboyant costumes, captivating lyrics, and powerful vocal talent. She’s earned critical acclaim including several Grammy awards and even an Oscar nomination for her lead role in the movie A Star is Born. She does what she loves and, as a result, has become one of the biggest singer-songwriters of the modern era.

But underneath the glowing stage persona, Lady Gaga has long struggled with mental health issues. She’s been open with the media and her fans about her history with trauma, PTSD, and other mental difficulties. In fact, she’s become a fierce advocate for mental health services to help break the stigma around getting help and to serve as a role model for those who may also be suffering.

Perhaps you, too, have struggled with mental illness but have been too embarrassed or ashamed to ask for help. Perhaps you’re just not sure if you’re ready for counseling. Or maybe you simply have trouble fitting therapy into your busy schedule.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
