To best address varying needs and preferences, Thriveworks Woodbridge offers online counseling opportunities. Online counseling—otherwise referred to ase-counseling and virtual therapy—improves access to mental health services and also offers a more convenient counseling option, as it allows individuals to work with a counselor or therapist right from home.
“When we talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary.” –Fred Rogers
The two main online counseling options at Thriveworks Woodbridge, VA are telephone counseling and video counseling (of which we will delve into later). Both of these options will enable you to work with your counselor virtually, and from the convenience of home, work, the coffee shop down the stress, your car, or anywhere else you choose.
To schedule an online counseling appointment at Thriveworks Woodbridge, simply give our office a call. Or, if you’d prefer to schedule an in-person counseling appointment, we can help with that too! Our counselors are happy to work with you in-office or online. The choice is yours.
How Does Online Counseling at Thriveworks Woodbridge Work?
As we just mentioned, there are two main online counseling options at Thriveworks Woodbridge: telephone counseling and video counseling. Both are effective options, which allow you to work well with your therapist and make important progress in your sessions. Here’s a little bit more about each:
- Telephone counseling is perhaps the most flexible, relaxed online counseling option of the two. As long as you have internet or cell service, you can attend your therapy session from wherever you please. You’ll simply answer your counselor’s call at the time of your appointment.
- Video counseling is perhaps the more intimate online counseling option, as it still offers that face-to-face interaction. Some people find this element vital to the learning and growth process in therapy—others would rather do without the face-to-face element. Consider, “Do I value that face-to-face interaction?” in deciding which online counseling option might be the best one for you!
The therapists and counselors at Thriveworks Woodbridge are happy to work with you in online counseling over the phone or over video. Also, if you try one option out and then decide that it might not be right for you, that’s okay—it happens. Sometimes you have to engage in telephone counseling and/or video counseling to best determine which option works for you.
