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 Savannah, GA 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?

Life is good—everything is in order and you are at peace. Then, right on cue, another challenge comes knocking at your door. Maybe it’s depression or anxiety; perhaps it’s the loss of a friend or a job; maybe it’s tough parenting decisions. Whatever it is, it makes a mess of your life.

What Does Online Counseling Look Like at Thriveworks Savannah? 

A lot of people think that online counseling is a new, innovative form of counseling. In reality, though, it’s been around for decades! It first emerged as a mental health hotline, evolved to include online self-help groups, and today has branched out into individualized help with a licensed counselor via phone or video chat. The online therapists and counselors at Thriveworks Savannah are exactly that: licensed as well as skilled, caring providers who are prepared to help you overcome whatever challenge is at your door.

Online counseling is sometimes referred to as teletherapy, e-counseling, and cyber counseling. It all refers to the same thing: individualized help with an online counselor. Here at Thriveworks Savannah you will get to choose from telephone counseling and video counseling. The former option is the simpler of the two, as you’ll answer your counselor’s call at the time of your appointment. This means all you need is access to a phone and phone service. The latter is also fairly simple, as with video counseling, you’ll click a simple link that will take you to your video chat with your counselor at the time of your session.

Can Online Counseling Help Me? Is It Effective?

Some people would simply rather take the conventional route and meet with their counselor in person. That’s okay, too! Online counseling isn’t for everyone. However, it is helpful and beneficial to all when external factors prevent you from making it to your normal in-person session: for example, a virus, poor weather conditions, or car trouble. In these instances, you can easily move your session online.

Online counseling has proven effective for many people. In fact, some people find it to be more effective, especially people who feel anxious or uncomfortable about therapy. These individuals often find that it’s easier to open up via telephone or video chat. Now, online counseling might also be for you if you’re looking for:

  • Comfort
  • Convenience
  • Flexibility
  • Reliability
  • Affordability

These benefits are causing many people to move their in-person sessions online. In addition to attending your sessions comfortably and conveniently from home, you get greater flexibility. It’s easier to schedule an appointment quickly, and you’ll also likely have more options, such as evening and weekend session opportunities. Also, online counseling is reliable. You don’t have to worry about rescheduling or cancelling due to the aforementioned unpredictable factors. Finally, online counseling is an affordable option, too. Many insurances now cover online counseling, including video and phone counseling.

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.
