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 Cave Spring, VA 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.

What Is Online Therapy with Thriveworks Roanoke, VA? 

Online counseling is a way for you to meet with a professional counselor without leaving your home. Also known as cyber counseling, teletherapy, e-counseling, or e-therapy, online counseling can be great for people whose situation prevents them from meeting in-person with a counselor on a regular basis.

There are many methods that people use to individualize the online counseling experience. Thriveworks Roanoke offers a solution for everyone. Some people choose to meet through videoconferencing, online chat, email, text message, or over the phone. Like in-person counseling, you can set a time to talk with a Roanoke, VA counselor in real-time, or you can have a time-delayed conversation that occurs over a larger period of time and is very flexible.

With the increase in technology online counseling has skyrocketed. It started in 1982 as an online self-help group, but since then has branched to provide counseling for nearly every mental health concern there is. Thriveworks Roanoke is proud to offer this innovative and inclusive therapy format.

Can Online Therapy Help Me? Is Online Counseling Effective?

There can be a lot of doubt surrounding online counseling. How is Thriveworks Roanoke keeping the conversations confidential? Is it less effective than in-person counseling? Is it offered for all forms of therapy or only for certain mental health concerns?

Research done on the effectiveness of online therapy has shown it is just as effective, and in some cases may be even more effective than in-person counseling. For certain mental health concerns, meeting over the phone or through skype removes a layer of anxiety and allows people to open up faster.

  • It provides comfort and convenience: online therapy means you don’t have to worry about the weather or driving conditions. It means you don’t even have to change out of your pajamas!

I had the pleasure of working with Chris in a professional capacity for 6 years, during which time he provided individual counseling for a number of children that I referred to him. Chris always demonstrated a sincere empathetic sensibility in his relationship with his clientele. He is keenly adept at providing the skills and guidance that allows others to pursue a self-actualizing understanding and awareness of themselves. He is a superb counselor.
