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 Seattle, WA 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?

There’s a famous 1994 video of hosts of the Today Show talking about a new technology known as the internet. In the video, the hosts are trying to figure out what the internet is, what it can do, and who it’s for.

We’ve come a long way technologically since then, and the internet is now as ubiquitous as electricity and air conditioning for much of the world. But even so, we still find ourselves asking what the limits of technology are and what the web can do for us to increase our understanding of our world and our place in it.

The internet has changed the way we communicate. We can send text messages to people across the country, video chat with colleagues and friends all over the globe, and send emails from Alabama to Antarctica. We shop online, we research online, and many of us make our living online.

With all that technology, it’s no surprise that we can now have therapy sessions with online therapists and counselors, too. Whether we’re phoning in from our bedroom or video chatting from our den, we can receive convenient care without commuting to a brick-and-mortar office.

Virtual care has opened therapy up to people with mobility challenges, people living in rural communities, and people with time constraints. If you fit into one of these categories or if you’d simply like the ease of speaking to a virtual provider, consider setting up an appointment with us at Thriveworks in Seattle, WA.

What Services Are Available Online?

Traditional therapy covers a wide range of topics, from self-esteem issues to mental health disorders like bipolar disorder. Virtual therapy offers many of the same services but with the added convenience of being able to enjoy the benefits remotely.

Some of the more common mental health services offered by our online providers include:

  • Grief and loss counseling
  • Family therapy and child therapy
  • Marriage counseling and couples therapy
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Anger and stress management
  • Depression therapy and anxiety therapy
  • Career counseling and life coaching

Each type of therapy begins with your provider assessing your individual needs. They may do this by asking about your environment, family, and daily stressors. After your assessment, your provider will create a specialized treatment plan for you.

If you’re ready to benefit from virtual counseling, consider setting up a session with us at Thriveworks in Seattle, WA to begin the process. We look forward to hearing from you.

Why Should I Choose Online Sessions?

Meeting with a licensed therapist or counselor remotely at Thriveworks means you can decide how you’d like to conduct your session: over the phone or by video. If you select to have a phone call, your provider will call you at your scheduled appointment time. If you decide to do a video chat, you’ll receive a link prior to your appointment. Simply click on the link during the corresponding time to get started.

Conversing over the phone is the perfect option if mobility is important or you don’t have an internet connection and video conferencing access. If you’d like the feeling of face-to-face therapy with the benefits of virtual therapy, video chatting might be your preferred communication method as it allows you to see your provider.

No matter which method you choose, you’ll receive all the benefits that online counseling offers including:

  • Increased accessibility: Schedule your appointments from anywhere you have internet or phone access. Speaking to a provider online is a great option if you live in a rural or remote area or if you have a physical disability.
  • Increased flexibility: Since you don’t have to drive to our office, you can book your appointment during your lunch hour, mid-day break, or between other appointments.
  • Increased comfort: Talking to a licensed counselor or another mental health professional from your home or office may make the process more comfortable.

An additional benefit of online therapy is that your service does not have to be interrupted because of an out-of-town emergency, vacation, or other events that may prevent you from coming to our office.

Your online treatment can begin as soon as you’re ready. Call us at Thriveworks in Seattle, WA to schedule your first appointment.
