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 St Charles, 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?

There are so many things in our hectic lives that can keep us from working with a mental health provider. Maybe your work schedule is full, you’re raising children, or there isn’t a mental healthcare office near your house. If this describes your experience, you may benefit from remote counseling appointments.

Traditionally, therapists and counselors work with their clients in a face-to-face setting. But the internet has changed the way that high-quality mental health care can be delivered. Online therapy or counseling lets you work with a licensed professional without having to leave your house. You get access to the same standard of care that you’d receive from traditional therapy, but with added convenience and flexibility.

If the stresses of modern life have been keeping you from working with a mental health professional, remote therapy appointments may be right for you. Consider working with a licensed professional from Thriveworks Counseling in St. Charles, MO to help you reach your mental health goals. Call our office today to get started.

Types of Therapy Delivered Online

Most therapeutic methods involve an open dialogue between a licensed mental health professional and their client. As a result, traditional, face-to-face therapy sessions often translate very well to a remote environment.

There are many types of mental health services offered online, including:

  • Marriage and family therapy
  • Anxiety, panic disorder, and phobia therapy
  • Depression therapy
  • Couples counseling
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Addiction and substance abuse counseling
  • Life coaching
  • Career coaching
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)

The therapeutic process for online therapy is very similar to traditional therapy. You’ll meet with your licensed mental health counselor or therapist to discuss your concerns. Your provider will create a personalized treatment plan that takes your needs and preferences into consideration. This plan will guide future sessions and help you reach your mental health goals.

Do you want to work with one of our licensed therapists or counselors? If so, call our office today at Thriveworks counseling in St. Charles, MO to set up a remote appointment.

Online Therapy: What To Expect

Online therapy can be much more flexible and convenient than in-person therapy. After all, finding time for counseling is often easier when you don’t have to drive to a provider’s office. Choosing your own space for therapy also has its own benefits, giving you the opportunity to be as comfortable as possible to help you make progress more quickly.

You have two main choices when it comes to remote therapy services at Thriveworks — sessions over phone calls or video chats. Both options are great depending on your needs and comfort level.

Here are some of the benefits of each:

  • Phone calls: Receiving therapeutic treatment over the phone is a great option for some people. You might be nervous about the thought of speaking with a mental health provider — if so, working with a therapist or counselor over the phone can help you focus on the conversation and open up to your provider more easily. If you decide to work with a provider over the phone, you’ll receive a call when it’s time for your appointment to start.
  • Video chats: Video chats are great for people who prefer face-to-face interactions. Therapy or counseling is at its best when you feel comfortable, open, and honest with your provider. Making a personal connection can help you make more progress during each session. If you decide to work with your counselor over a video chat, you’ll receive a link to the session before it’s scheduled to start.

No matter which option you choose, Thriveworks Counseling in St. Charles, MO has convenient online services that can help you fit mental health care into your schedule. Call our office to get set up with your first appointment today.

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.
