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 Salt Lake City, UT 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?

When you think of your health, what comes to mind first? Likely, it’s all physical: your heart, your lungs, your skin. Not many people think about their mental health, which is just as important to their overall well-being as their physical state.

We all have bad days and go through difficult times in our lives. So when is the right time to speak with a licensed professional?

It’s different for every person but a general rule of thumb is this: When mental, emotional, and behavioral health issues are getting in the way of your ability to live your life the way you want, it may be worth working with a counselor or therapist. Doing so will allow you to take steps to reduce your symptoms and move beyond whatever issues are weighing you down.

If the thought of mental health services intimidates you, know that you aren’t alone. Traditional therapy sessions conducted with someone in an office setting aren’t for everyone. That’s why Thriveworks in Salt Lake City, UT offers scientifically-proven therapies remotely — either by video chat or phone call — to help our clients take the next step in their mental health journeys.

Online counseling is a great alternative for people who don’t have the ability to commute or simply feel more at ease speaking with a licensed professional from the comfort of their own homes. At Thriveworks, we believe that therapy should be accessible and convenient for anyone. All you need in order to benefit from our online therapy services is internet and a smart device that allows you to join a video chatroom or simply a telephone.

If you’re ready to take back control of your life, consider scheduling an online therapy appointment with our team at Thriveworks in Salt Lake City, UT.

Most Common Types of Online Therapy Services

Since the basis of therapy involves developing an open dialogue with a licensed professional about your concerns and symptoms, we are able to offer most forms of traditional therapy in a remote setting as well. Studies show online counseling can be just as effective and many clients find it to be just as helpful as in-person therapy, but with the added convenience.

Some of the most common online therapy services at Thriveworks include:

  • Marriage counseling and couples therapy
  • Depression therapy and anxiety therapy
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Family therapy and child therapy
  • PTSD counseling and trauma therapy
  • Grief and loss counseling
  • LGBTQ+ counseling
  • Sexual assault counseling
  • Life coaching
  • Career counseling

If you think you might benefit from one of these services, give us a call at Thriveworks in Salt Lake City, UT to set up your first appointment.

3 Reasons To Try Online Therapy

Online therapy offers several benefits, including the following:

  1. It can be less time-consuming: Online counseling cuts out the need for a timely commute. This is also beneficial for our clients who do not have easy access to a vehicle or public transportation. At Thriveworks in Salt Lake City, your session is only as far away as your computer. This makes it a lot easier to fit therapy into your busy schedule.
  2. It can be less expensive: Commuting costs can add up. An online session saves money on gas and mileage, or public transportation fees for individuals who don’t own a car. This can go a long way toward making therapy more affordable. (Plus, insurance often covers remote therapy appointments!)
  3. It can be less stressful: Many people with depression, anxiety, and other emotional disorders may feel stressed at the thought of an in-person therapy visit. Remote therapy appointments are as easy as picking up the phone or opening a video session. If you’d like to come into the office after you get more comfortable, we would be more than happy to schedule an in-person appointment with you when you feel ready.

Of course, one of the biggest benefits you can get from online sessions with a licensed therapist is the same you would get from traditional therapy — you can reduce your symptoms and get your life back on track. When you’re ready to feel the relief that therapy can provide, click or call to schedule an appointment with a licensed mental health professional at Thriveworks in Salt Lake City, UT.
