What Is Online Therapy? How Does It Work?
Online counseling is a simple and effective way to attend therapy without leaving home. It gives more people the opportunity to heal and grow through counseling. Our Thriveworks Wilmington, DE online counselors will look at your needs and goals to design a unique treatment plan that will best help you.
Online counseling is typically conducted one of two ways: via phone call or videoconference. If you choose the former option, your counselor will call you at the time of your appointment. If you choose the latter, they will send you a video link which you should visit at the time of your session instead. All you need is a safe, comfortable space to talk with your therapist and phone service or Internet connection.
In many ways, online counseling at Thriveworks Wilmington is much the same as in-person sessions. Whether you choose to work with a counselor onsite or online, we will provide a safe, nonjudgmental space for you to work through your problems with your counselor.
Is Online Counseling at Thriveworks Wilmington for Me?
