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 Vancouver, WA 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?

Adam knew he was depressed. Boy, did he know it. He also knew that he needed to seek help from a psychiatrist or counselor in order to overcome his major depressive episode. But Adam felt that it might be beyond his current capabilities to make it to the therapy office in-person. He felt overwhelmed whenever he left his house. Depression and anxiety were like a one-two punch that kept him isolated, away from his friends and family and doctors. Adam was pretty sure that a counselor wasn’t going to come to his home and talk to him on his dirty couch, in his messy living room. And he definitely wasn’t fit for travel. Were there any other options for Adam to get the professional support he needed?

Adam and others like him can benefit from online counseling services at Thriveworks in Vancouver, WA. Studies have shown that online mental health counseling is just as effective as in-person counseling, with the added benefit of better access and convenience. Seeing a psychiatrist or another mental health provider virtually means that you can conduct your secure session from home, in your comfort zone, when it suits your schedule. Online licensed counselors at Thriveworks in Vancouver, WA also accept health insurance, making these services more affordable than ever.

Why Choose Online Counseling?

Movies and television shows usually depict therapy sessions taking place in an office that contains a couch, an armchair, a box of tissues, and a lot of neutral colors. But clients seeking mental health services have different expectations now. Innovations in telework and telehealth mean that people can do their jobs remotely and see their doctors remotely. At Thriveworks in Vancouver, WA, we see no reason why you can’t meet with your mental health provider remotely. Our services can be fully virtual and still provide privacy, security, and top-notch care. Our clients’ reasons for choosing online counseling include:

  • It feels easier to be upfront and honest when they’re in familiar surroundings.
  • It’s easier to find an online appointment that works with their schedule when they don’t have to rely on clinic hours.
  • They don’t have to read old magazines in a waiting room.
  • They don’t have to miss out on sessions if they’re traveling for work or pleasure.
  • They don’t have to worry about being exposed to germs or viruses in an office.
  • They don’t have to take time off work to attend therapy sessions.
  • They can conveniently see a therapist even if they live in a rural area.
  • They can see a therapist even if they feel too emotionally fragile to change locations.

It’s encouraging to know that help is on its way even if you’re unable to meet with your counselor in-person. And Thriveworks online counseling sessions are HIPAA-compliant so you never have to worry about confidentiality and security.

Online counselors at Thriveworks in Vancouver, WA can support clients facing a wide range of problems and obstacles. That said, we may recommend that you meet with a counselor in-person rather than online if you are underage, suffering from symptoms of psychosis, or in acute crisis. Online counseling sessions can often prove to be a valuable option for most other people, especially those whose issues include:

  • Anxiety
  • Eating disorders
  • Depression
  • Libido problems
  • Panic attacks
  • Substance abuse issues
  • Memory or focus problems
  • Hyperactivity
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Borderline personality disorder
  • Shame or guilt
  • Grief
  • Relationship conflicts
  • Adverse life events
  • Chronic illness
  • Body dysmorphic disorder

Online counseling at Thriveworks isn’t like a virtual help service where you can text back and forth with a counselor if you’re feeling sad. And it isn’t like FaceTiming with a friend. Our counselors are fully licensed, highly qualified, and top-rated so you receive all the face-to-face benefits of an in-person therapy session, but with online convenience.

Can I Meet with My Thriveworks Psychiatrist Online?

Thriveworks clients can make appointments to see an online psychiatrist (telepsychiatrist) with the same ease with which they make other virtual appointments. Our psychiatrists can safely prescribe and monitor medications virtually and save you a trip to their medical office.

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.
