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 specific needs and with whom 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 Woodbridge, 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?

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!

I want to start off by saying that my two counselors I had were great, but the thrive works Business model is lacking a care for its clients. I had my heat go out and I missed my session because I was working for eight hours straight on it and was told that I shouldn’t have been working on my heat and made my appointment because it’s more important than my family. Will not recommend, and I had a horrible experience with Thrive works as a business model but again my two counselors were wonderful. I got nothing but respect for them.

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.

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.

Sharon shows a great deal of compassion, wisdom and kindness when sharing my concerns/issues with her. She is professional yet very personal as she guides and provides the help I need. If you are looking for a counselor that cares Ms. Sharon is an excellent choice.
