How Does Online Therapy in Louisiana Work?

Online therapy in Louisiana is very similar to traditional in-person therapy. When you attend your virtual therapy appointments, you talk to a licensed therapist about what you are currently experiencing. The only difference between in-person therapy and online therapy is that you meet with your therapist virtually, and have a remote online therapy session.   

During online therapy sessions, you talk to a Louisiana licensed therapist via video chat from your computer or phone. Each online therapy session is 45 minutes long, completely confidential, and secure. From your first session, your therapist will work with you to help improve your mental health by providing emotional support, and teaching you tools and coping mechanisms to help you in your day-to-day life.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How much does online therapy typically cost in Louisiana?

    Online therapy costs vary in Louisiana, and it depends on a few variables such as if the therapist takes insurance, or if they are in private practice or a group. At PlushCare, each online therapy session is $169.

  • What can an online therapist help treat?

    An online therapist can help treat many different mental health conditions. Severe mental health conditions such as serious mental illnesses, psychiatric disorders, or someone with thoughts of suicide would benefit more from in-person therapy that can give the adequate care that is required for treatment. Online therapists are well suited to talk to people who just want to talk, and help treat people with mental health concerns such as: 

    • Depression 

    • Anxiety 

    • COVID-19 related anxiety

  • Are online therapists worth it?

    For many people, online therapy is worth it. Online therapy can be an effective, convenient and affordable way for many people to receive access to the emotional support that they need. Additionally, numerous studies have found that online therapy can be just as effective as traditional in-person therapy.

  • What do therapists use for online therapy?

    Therapists can use different types of therapy. PlushCare only employs licensed therapists that each have different specialties, methods, and forms of therapy that they use. Most of our therapists use cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), which is the most commonly used type of therapy for online and in-person sessions. Research shows that CBT has proven to be the most effective method of therapy, particularly for online therapy.
