With the spread of COVID-19 and the responding stay-at-home recommendations and social distancing, your life has probably changed. While change itself is not a bad thing, the sudden onset of it and the consequences that follow can have negative impacts on your life and mental health. While you are staying safe at home and trying to cope with the changes in your life, Thriveworks Tucson is doing our part by working from home and offering online counseling.
“We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand.”
Online therapy, also known as telehealth therapy, provides you professional, empathetic, nonjudgmental mental and behavioral health guidance from the comfort and convenience of your home (or even your car or office!). If you’re ready to start working towards a brighter future, give us a call today.

Much more! Anything you would like to change or improve in your life can be discussed in a telehealth therapy session with Thriveworks Tucson AZ, Pima County.
You might still have some concerns about how online counseling works and what it will be like. Thriveworks Tucson counselors work hard to make sure our telehealth services are just as easy and comfortable to use as our in-person services. There are two ways you can receive counseling virtually:
- Video Counseling: The process for video counseling is the same as phone counseling, except instead of a phone call from your counselor you will receive a link to a video conference. Follow the link at your appointment time and you’re good to go!
- Phone Counseling: Grab your phone, maybe some snacks or a favorite beverage, get comfortable, and wait for your counselor’s call! They are scheduled the same way in-person therapy at Thriveworks Tucson are scheduled. (We would need to verify that your insurance covers this service, if chosen)
