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 , VA 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?

Have you ever considered working with a mental health counselor? Our guess is that it’s crossed your mind. Often, this is as far as people get. They encounter a problem in life—such as a marital problem or ample amount of stress—and in searching for a solution, consider talking to a counselor. But they then convince themselves otherwise: “No, it’s not that serious,” or, “I don’t really need counseling,” or even, “I’ll call tomorrow,” but they never follow through.

If this sounds like you, we’re here to shine a light on all that mental health counseling could do for you. While many people assume that counseling is only for those who are struggling severely. In reality, counseling is for everyone. For those who are struggling severely or mildly. And even for those who should simply like another perspective or some extra support.

What do you first do when you learn to swim? You make mistakes, do you not? And what happens? You make other mistakes, and when you have made all the mistakes you possibly can without drowning—and some of them many times over—what do you find? That you can swim? Well—life is just the same as learning to swim!”

Online Counseling at Thriveworks Vermont: How Does It Work?

Online counseling at Thriveworks Vermont is for any and every resident of the state of Vermont. You don’t have to worry about finding a counselor nearby or commuting to an office, as your relationship with your counselor will be formed entirely online. As we mentioned previously, we offer two main online therapy options, which are:

  1. Counseling by telephone: If you choose online counseling by telephone, you’ll just answer your provider’s call at the time of your appointment.
  2. Counseling by video: If you choose online counseling by video, you’ll instead join a videoconference at the time of your appointment.

Again, it’s up to you to decide which course of online counseling you’d like to take. Now, if you are keen on meeting with your counselor “face-to-face,” then video counseling is probably the route that you’ll want to take. If, however, you don’t care about the “face-to-face” factor, or you could do without it, telephone counseling might be worth exploring! Either way, you can schedule your online session now. Our team will be happy to schedule you.

What Can I Accomplish in Online Counseling?

Online counseling can help you in the same way that traditional in-person counseling can help you. The only major difference is that it is done in a virtual environment. So, to be more specific, an online counselor can help you…

  • Navigate difficult conversations with your significant other or spouse
  • Build stronger, healthier relationships with your friends and family members
  • Manage stressful situations with greater ease
  • Work through depression, anxiety, and other mental health conditions
  • Heal after a traumatic experience
  • Properly grieve the loss of a loved one or job
  • Better manage difficult emotions as they come

In a nutshell, online counseling therapy can help you jump over the hurdles that are preventing you from living a life that’s full of happiness and success. The online counselors at Thriveworks will help you live meaningfully, each and every day.

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.
