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 Tempe, AZ 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.

The Ins and Outs of Online Therapy

Online therapy is simple, which makes it a perfect option if you know you could benefit from speaking to a counselor. Live video chat has many advantages. When it comes to talk therapy, sometimes it’s easier to build the trusting relationship necessary for this collaborative process when you can look your counselor or therapist in the eye. Your provider may also have an easier time reading your emotions and body language, in turn making sessions more productive. Online therapy by video makes this possible without having to go in person to meet with your provider.

Thriveworks clients are able to enjoy convenient access to mental health services without leaving the comfort of their homes. For those who lack reliable transportation, live in remote areas, or find in-person therapy appointments intimidating, remote therapy is a particularly beneficial option. When it comes to your therapy sessions, especially when you’re just getting started, frequency and consistency are important if you want to see results. Talk therapy sessions don’t always offer quick and easy solutions. It takes time for your counselor to get to know your situation and understand your issues so they can guide you through them. With the option of remote therapy, it’s easier to commit to a consistent schedule without worrying about bad weather, transportation issues, and minor sicknesses getting in the way.

If you’ve been interested in speaking to a licensed mental health professional, it’s easier than ever to get started with online counseling from Thriveworks in Tempe, AZ.

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.
