Online Counseling Therapy in Woodbridge, VA—Online Counselors, Therapists

To best address varying needs and preferences, Thriveworks Woodbridge offers online counseling opportunities. Online counseling—otherwise referred to as e-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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

How Can Online Counseling Help Me?

Just like in-person counseling, online counseling can help people address a wide array of mental health challenges and other life issues. These include symptoms of a mental health disorder such as depression or anxiety; family conflicts; relationship issues; grief and loss; stressors in childhood or teenhood; stress management; and so on. This means that you can participate in the following services online at Thriveworks Woodbridge:

  • Depression therapy
  • Anxiety therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Couples therapy
  • Marriage counseling
  • Grief therapy
  • Child therapy
  • Teen counseling
  • Stress management counseling
  • And more!

This list does not completely represent the services offered in online counseling at Thriveworks Woodbridge, VA—but it’s a good start! If you’re looking for mental health services and you’re interested in the comfort, convenience, and flexibility offered in online counseling, consider reaching out to Thriveworks Woodbridge today.

Answers to my prayers

Johanna Lee has been my therapist for the past 7 months and I am extremely pleased with her! She is very professional and goes above and beyond to meet my needs. Thriveworks makes the whole process easy because I can text them to solve any issues I’m having.

Discerning & Thoughtful

I mentored Sharon in her master’s and doctoral studies where I found her to be thoughtful and discerning. She always generated a sincere sense of passion as her desire was not just to obtain degrees but to build the skills and knowledge base to support people within her community. Transparent in all her interactions with me and fellow students, she was unapologetically true to Biblical standards as the foundation of her interactions with others. I am confident that she will continue to be a thoughtful and wise counselor to all who seek her guidance and compassion.

People Person

Sharon is the epitome of integrity. She operates in humility and truth. She embodies what I call the three Cs: Caring, Considerate, and Compassionate. She sees you, hears you, and listens attentively and intuitively to your concerns. Her advice is sound and non-judgmental. Sharon's quiet, calm, and peaceful spirit puts you at ease, and makes you feel comfortable. I often seek her advice when life becomes difficult. I highly recommend Sharon for those that are broken, and in need of much healing and inner peace.
