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 San Bernardino, CA 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?

Have you been going through a difficult time lately? Are you struggling with depression, anxiety, or another mental disorder? Do you feel like you need to talk to someone about your issues but are afraid of being judged by your friends or family? You aren’t alone.

Many mental health issues are highly treatable under the guidance of a trained therapist, but some people never take the first step to give treatment a chance. Perhaps you know you could use professional help from a counselor or therapist but the idea of sitting face-to-face with a stranger in an office is daunting. Or maybe life just keeps getting in the way and you find it difficult to make the time for regular therapy sessions.

For these reasons and more, online therapy has become an increasingly popular alternative to traditional therapy in an office environment. All you need to do is pick up your phone or open a video chat to speak with a licensed online therapist from the comfort of your home.

You don’t have to hide your mental health struggles or wrestle with them yourself. Our team of online therapists is here to help at Thriveworks Counseling in San Bernardino, CA.

What Types of Therapy Are Offered Online?

The basis of many mental health treatments is called talk therapy, a process by which a client speaks openly with their therapist about fears, personal issues, emotions, and daily experiences. As long as you have a quiet space and are willing to be honest with yourself and your mental health professional, you can experience the power of therapy wherever you are.

For this reason, many clients find online therapy to be just as effective as in-person therapy. Some of Thriveworks’ most common online therapy services include:

  • Depression therapy and anxiety therapy
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Marriage counseling and couples therapy
  • Life coaching and career counseling
  • PTSD counseling and trauma therapy
  • Grief and loss counseling
  • Family therapy and child therapy
  • Stress and anger management
  • Eating disorder therapy

If you’ve been putting off seeking help for a certain disorder or crisis, you don’t have to any longer. With online therapy from Thriveworks Counseling in San Bernardino, CA, it’s easier than ever to make your mental health a priority without leaving home.

How Does Online Therapy Work?

Whether you are a tech wizard or incredibly uncomfortable with technology, we are here to ensure a stress-free online therapy experience. All you need to do is pick between phone calls and video chats and you’re ready to begin speaking with a licensed mental health professional.

Phone therapy is a great option for those who find it intimidating to speak to someone face-to-face about their personal issues. Phone calls may also be preferable if you don’t have a strong video connection or want to remain mobile during your therapy session.

However, video appointments may be preferable for those who are already accustomed to app-based communication and want to be able to see their therapist. Eye contact may help you build a trusting relationship with your therapist who will also have the benefit of being able to more easily read your body language.

Finding a therapist can be difficult if you live in a remote area or lack reliable transportation. Physical disabilities or illnesses can also prevent people from accessing essential mental health services. For many people, it is simply easier to integrate therapy into their lives when it’s done comfortably and conveniently from their home.

If you think you would benefit from online therapy services, don’t hesitate to contact Thriveworks Counseling in San Bernardino, CA to get started.

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.
