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 cognitive behavioral therapy because you are able to get a wide variety of supplements for patients to work on their own.

What tools do you teach in online therapy?

I teach the following tools in online therapy: mood journals, cognitive distortions, and identifying negative thoughts.

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

I know a client is making meaningful progress in online therapy when they are able to recall previous sessions and express how they are implementing these techniques in their day-to-day.

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

Clients can supplement their time in online therapy by learning about the theory itself and being able to go deeper into the tools given in sessions.

What should someone do to prepare for starting online therapy?

To prepare for your first online therapy session you can make sure to be in a place where you feel comfortable.

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 San Antonio, TX 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.
