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 Sioux Falls, SD 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?

While we don’t always open up about how we’re feeling, we do all experience a range of emotions on a daily basis. We might feel angry one day and then sad the next; we might feel disappointed or defeated after a challenging conversation with a loved one; we might feel unmotivated or dreadful about going to work. This list could go on forever. The point is that we all encounter emotional struggles as well as other mental health challenges that affect our wellbeing.

Fortunately, we can learn to manage these emotional and mental challenges with the help of a licensed professional mental health counselor. Counselors, therapists, and psychologists all have unique skills, experience, training, and specialties that allow them to help people with these varying problems.

If you’re considering working with a counselor, consider working with an online counselor at Thriveworks Counseling in Sioux Falls. Our providers can help you work through your life issues from the comfort and convenience of home. We think that you’ll find online counseling to be the most beneficial, straightforward approach to counseling. If you’d like to give this online therapy platform a try, give our office a call.

What Are Online Counseling Benefits?

Have you ever missed an appointment because the traffic was too bad? Or been so tired you really didn’t feel like leaving the house? Online therapy comes with many benefits, which means that it can help many different people. For example, it offers…

  • Comfort and convenience
  • Reliability
  • Affordability
  • Flexibility

First, online therapy provides exceptional comfort and convenience, as you can attend your session from the comfort and convenience of home. Additionally, it offers reliability. You can attend from home, or wherever you find to be the most comfortable, you don’t have to worry about missing your appointment because of a sickness, traffic, a physical disability, bad weather, or another external factor.

Additionally, online therapy is affordable. Many insurance companies now cover online counseling services, and Thriveworks in Sioux Falls offers self-pay options as well. Finally, online therapy is flexible. You can typically schedule an appointment much quicker than you would an in-person therapy session. Plus, we have flexible cancellations, and it’s easy to reschedule when you need to.

What Kind of Counseling Is Offered Online?

The big difference between working with a counselor in person through traditional therapy and working with a counselor online is the fact that one is virtual, the other is not. With in-person counseling, you’re working with your counselor in-person or in an office. And in online counseling, you’re working with your counselor online through live chats or phone calls.

You can enjoy the same mental health services in in-person and online counseling at Thriveworks, including:

  • Child therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Couples therapy
  • Marriage counseling
  • Depression and anxiety therapy

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.
