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 Sterling Heights, MI 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.

How Does Online Therapy Work?

Online therapy is likely just as you imagine it to be. It involves working with a therapist via the internet or phone call. You can choose to work with your online therapist over the phone, via video call, or via email/chat. Here’s a little bit about how each works:

  • Work with an online therapist over the phone: One option is to schedule weekly or biweekly phone meetings with your therapist! You’ll simply agree on a set day and time and then attend your session via phone call.
  • Work with an online therapist over video call: You can also choose to work with your online therapist via video call. As with phone therapy, you will schedule a video meeting with your therapist and then attend via video.
  • Work with an online therapist via email or chat: Finally, you can choose to work with a therapist on a more flexible schedule, via email or chat. Instead of picking a set time frame to talk, you’ll work together over a more flexible, extended period of time.

Online therapy is a great option for many reasons. The primary benefit, though, is its convenience. A problem for many when it comes to obtaining mental health services, is fitting therapy or counseling into their already demanding schedule. Online therapy helps to eliminate this problem, as you don’t have to carve out time in your schedule to drive to a therapy office. Instead, you can schedule an appointment and then attend your appointment from wherever you may need (so long as you have access to the internet).

What Are the Perks of Online Therapy Counseling?

As we touched on earlier, online mental health therapy proves to be the right option for many individuals in need of mental health services. This approach to therapy provides many benefits that other forms of therapy do not, including:

  1. Utmost convenience: Online therapy is as convenient as it gets. For many people, therapy is inconvenient because they have a busy schedule on their hands and can’t possibly make room for another appointment. Online therapy addresses this problem by allowing clients to attend their therapy session from wherever they need to. So, for example, one can attend therapy on their lunch break at work!
  2. Undeniable comfort: Online therapy counseling is also as comfortable as it gets! Instead of working with your therapist in their office, you have the freedom to work with your online therapist from the comfort (and convenience) of your bed, couch, or anywhere else you please.
  3. Unbeatable flexibility: Online therapy is also flexible, as clients can call in and book online therapy sessions with ease and quickness. Therapists are much more likely to have sooner availability for online therapy because of its convenience.

My overall experience has been as expected when dealing with behavior healthcare. There is no real care for the patient and their needs. I spent an hour on the phone with a call center rep from the billing department who said I had no insurance on file, then proceeded to transfer me to the correct department who said I did. I have been without medication that was prescribed on Monday. When I received a call back from the psychiatrist, it seemed that your company forgot to send it over. That is unacceptable behavior when it comes to dealing with any customer.

It's a wonderful experience working with Cornelia Golden. She presents a healthy balance of comfortability and professionalism. She listens with the intent to hear what is being said and yet hear what's not being said. Cornelia has a very calming presence and I feel both confident in her counseling skills and that my concerns are professionally cared for. She is a very capable counselor. Clients will greatly benefit from working with her. I am happy to write this review for Ms. Cornelis Golden.
