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 Springfield, MO 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?

Most people will agree that taking care of their mental health is important. Even so, it’s not always easy to take that next step to seek out professional help from a licensed counselor.

You may be holding onto feelings of shame or embarrassment that prevent you from reaching out for a therapist’s guidance. Or maybe there are more practical considerations such as a busy schedule or lack of reliable transportation that seem to get in the way.

Mental health services should be easily accessible and at Thriveworks Counseling we’ve worked to remove as many obstacles as possible. Our online therapy offers a convenient and confidential solution for people struggling with issues related to their mental health.

Video chats and phone calls are just as effective as in-person counseling for many clients, making it easy to receive the help you need from the comfort of your own home. Plus, virtual counseling makes therapy accessible for clients who live remotely, have busy schedules, or don’t have access to transportation.

While we treat severe mental illnesses, you don’t need to be faced with a specific crisis to benefit from the services of a trained and experienced mental health counselor. If you’re not feeling your best, our professional therapists can help. We work with clients to determine the root of their problems and come up with a strategy to help them get back on track.

If you’ve been thinking about speaking to a licensed mental health professional, consider scheduling an appointment with Thriveworks Counseling in Springfield, MO.

What Types of Therapy are Offered Online?

At Thriveworks, we offer compassionate counseling services for a wide range of issues. Here are some of the most common types of online therapy we offer:

  • Depression or anxiety therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Stress or anger management
  • Life coaching or career counseling
  • Grief or loss counseling
  • Trauma/PTSD therapy
  • Family and child therapy
  • Couples therapy and marital counseling
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)

Online therapy is similar to traditional therapy but with the added benefit of being able to take those sessions remotely. While many clients find this to be an attractive advantage, it is particularly convenient for those seeking marriage and family therapists. Coordinating remote appointments with a partner, spouse, or family member is typically much easier than scheduling in-person therapy sessions.

If you’ve been feeling anxious, low levels of self-esteem, or another mental health issue, consider working with a mental health counselor. Our licensed professionals at Thriveworks can provide you with the tools you need to get through life’s challenges.

How Does Online Therapy Work?

When you sign up for virtual therapy with Thriveworks Counseling, you receive the option of taking your appointment by video chat or phone call. Since therapy tends to be more effective when it is done consistently, online therapy makes it easier to keep to a consistent schedule with your therapist.

Whether done offline or online, talk therapy like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) can help you analyze and change your thought patterns. By speaking with a therapist, you can get an objective perspective on your feelings, relationships and struggles. CBT can also teach you how to tolerate distress, cope with uncomfortable emotions and solve everyday problems.

For many individuals, video chatting is preferable to phone call therapy because having eye contact with a therapist can help build trust and a more personal connection. On the other hand, some clients are limited by their device or the quality of their internet connection, making counseling via phone calls the perfect alternative. Either way, it’s easy to fit online therapy into your schedule, no matter where you are.

If problems related to mental health are preventing you from living the life you want, we’re here to help. With online counseling from Thriveworks Counseling in Springfield, MO, compassionate and convenient therapy is well within reach.

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.
