Menopause counseling visits cost $99 (master’s level provider) or $110 (doctoral level provider), compared with the average national cost of $161 for a therapy visit, and usually just a co-pay or meeting a deductible if your employer or insurance company offers a telehealth benefit. Contact your Human Resources department or health insurance company to see if your visit is covered.
No. The cost is the same no matter when you talk with a therapist.
One in four Americans is affected by emotional distress at some time in life, but only one in eight seeks care. From chronic concerns such as depression and anxiety, to recent stress caused by events such as grief, divorce, childbirth/parenthood, menopause, or other major life changes, online therapy allows for reliable and convenient therapy visits with licensed and highly-trained therapists.
Here are a few reasons people go online to see a therapist:
No. To ensure privacy and security of data, Amwell therapy sessions are neither recorded nor stored.
The telehealth therapy services provided by Amwell are provided by a network of licensed doctoral level psychologists and master’s level therapists practicing within the Amwell Medical Group. Each therapist is licensed to practice in their state, and trained in prevention and treatment techniques via telehealth. In addition to therapists, we have online physicians who can prescribe medications and manage urgent care and regular office visit medical needs staffed by a national network of U.S. board-certified clinicians devoted to video telehealth.
Yes. Just make sure to select the state you’re in under ‘My Location’ and you’ll only see therapists licensed to see you in that state. When using the app, you can choose to update your current state based on mobile geolocation, making it faster to find a doctor whether you are home or on the go.
An online therapy session is essentially the same as an office visit, but with the convenience and location of your choosing. You will be asked about your current emotional symptoms, potential factors contributing to these symptoms, your history, and what you would like to accomplish in therapy. Using this information, your therapist will develop a thorough assessment and recommend a treatment plan. This will be an ongoing conversation that adapts as your needs change over time.
No. None of our therapists prescribe medication. In practice, therapists are there to listen, understand your situation, identify more effective coping strategies, and help you through difficult stages of life. However, physicians and psychiatrists on our system can prescribe most psychiatric medications for patients seen on our system. Our therapists work in collaboration with our physicians to provide multi-disciplinary care, resulting in efficient and effective treatment.
The choice is yours. You will be asked if you want a copy of your session notes and after‑visit summary to be shared with your primary care provider. If you choose to share your after‑visit summary, Amwell will fax or electronically transmit it for you. You can also print the notes and save them for your own files or share them with other healthcare professionals. You may also decide not to share this information.
Entering counseling is a big step in caring for yourself, and your relationship with your therapist is an important part of your success in treatment. Do not hesitate to interview more than one therapist in order to find one with the experience, qualifications, and professional skills that allows you to become the best you can be. A good therapist will respect your decision.
