Taking care of your mental health should be one of your highest priorities. We’re all well aware that happiness comes from inside, after all. No matter how good your external circumstances are, mental illness can still strike. More and more people are seeking counseling today, recognizing that asking for help is not a weakness.

Whether your problems are circumstantial or a search for meaning, whether you have a diagnosable condition or want help dealing with the stresses of modern life, therapy is for you. Knowing you have someone to talk to when times get tough makes getting through those times so much easier.

Unfortunately, finding that help is not simple. People who have never been to therapy before ask similar questions. Where do I look for a therapist? Can I afford it and will my insurance cover it? What will other people think?

Making it even more difficult is the reality that access to mental healthcare in America is well below par. In Wisconsin, too, people are simply not getting the care they need. Mental illness is on the rise here, especially among youth, and traditional therapy solutions are not keeping up.

We’re here to help the Milwaukee area get access to affordable therapy. Welcome to ThriveTalk.

Online Therapy is an Effective Way To Get The Help You’re Looking For

More and more studies show that online therapy is effective in helping people through tough times and treating mental illness. ThriveTalk makes counseling in Milwaukee accessible to all.

Online therapy is the biggest development in mental health treatment in the recent past. It is changing the field by making sure everyone can get the help they need.

Here is everything you need to know about getting therapy through ThriveTalk.

What is Online Therapy?

Online therapy refers to counseling that is done remotely. Rather than being in the same room as the therapist, you communicate over video or voice chat. Otherwise known as teletherapy, it offers the same benefits as regular therapy at a cheaper price and greater convenience. Skip the waiting room and the fear of being seen by simply connecting at your scheduled time.

You can even text your therapist, with many available after hours when you need them. Therapy is not limited to rigid sessions. Sharing resources online is simple, and your therapist can keep track of your progress between sessions.

It has never been easier to find counseling in Milwaukee. Finally, everyone who needs or wants therapy in Milwaukee has access.

You Deserve Convenient and Affordable Help With ThriveTalk

ThriveTalk is an online therapy platform that brings you all the benefits of counseling with none of the pitfalls. Like regular therapy, you speak to a highly skilled therapist with all the right qualifications. They are able to identify the issues and guide you through the process of addressing them. Everything you say is completely confidential.

Unlike regular therapy, there are no waiting times and no one will see you walking in and out. We understand that not everyone sees therapy the way we do – as a powerful step towards a better you. There is still stigma and not everyone feels comfortable being seen going to counseling.

The ThriveTalk platform makes it easy to find the right therapist for you. No more trawling through the phone book looking for counseling in Milwaukee.

Therapy Is For Everyone

Another reason people tend to avoid seeking help is that they’re not sure it is for them. They may not feel comfortable with talking about their problems, and aren’t sure if they need help in the first place. However, you don’t need a diagnosed problem to seek therapy. Everyone can use a bit of help in negotiating a confusing world.

ThriveTalk is for you if you’re looking to:

  • Work through a loss or difficult transition
  • Raise your self-esteem
  • Improve your friendships
  • Make career changes
  • Find meaning or purpose
  • Start or maintain a healthy relationship
  • Explore coping skills

ThriveTalk is also for you if you suspect you may be suffering from a mental illness or already have a diagnosis. We can also create a holistic plan for those who require a range of treatments to address their problem.

We have therapists who have specialised in counseling for problems of any kind. That includes therapy, couples counseling, psychological testing, life coaching, and more.

Finding The Right Therapist For You

One of the most difficult things about seeking counseling in Milwaukee is finding the right therapist for you. Often, all you’ve got to go on is a name and recommendation. There’s no way to know before the session whether you’ll click, and trying one after another is time-consuming and expensive.

With ThriveTalk, the process is much easier. In the first place, you don’t have to find a therapist within driving distance and can choose instead based on more relevant factors. We also provide information on each of our therapists, including their specialties and experience. Finally, you can message or phone a therapist before scheduling a session to make sure they’re the right fit.

Online Therapy Can Be More Effective Than In-Person

Is it possible that online therapy can be more effective than face-to-face? There are definitely reasons to believe this. Online therapy is easier to adapt according to the client. Because sessions don’t have to be forced into specific time-slots, you can see your therapist as often as necessary. If you need to cancel, you won’t need to wait a whole week for your next appointment but can simply reschedule for a convenient time.

Furthermore, it’s far easier for you to communicate with your therapist between sessions. Therapists often want to share resources with clients, or give them tasks to try on their own. Our online platform makes this an intuitive part of the therapy process. In particular, therapists who specialize in CBT, MBCT, and similar therapies, will ask you to do “homework.” When interacting with them online, you can share your progress with them as you go. This way, you feel more motivated to do the work, and you won’t have to spend half of your therapy time updating them on it.

Many clients also express the benefit of seeing their therapist in the comfort of their own home or office. Some even enjoy taking a walk on a summer Milwaukee evening, or even when the weather is more mild, using the surroundings to ground themselves during their self-discovery. This is particularly useful when trying mindfulness-based solutions! A picturesque sunset or view of Lake Michigan can be the perfect setting.

Our therapists confirm that these factors help clients achieve concrete goals faster than even they expect.


When asked why they had not seen a therapist before, many of our clients have pointed to a lack of time. When you’re working a 9-to-5, it is difficult to fit a session in during the day. And at night after work, they feel too tired to go see a therapist. During our freezing winters in particular, the last thing you want to do is leave your warm home in the evening.

Online therapy makes it possible to see a therapist in the middle of a workday without the hassle of traveling and waiting. You don’t have to worry about traffic or leaving at exactly the right time. If you only have time after work, you can meet with your therapist at home, so that you don’t have to compromise on your relaxation.

While the right therapist is not always the most convenient therapist, ThriveTalk takes that issue out of the equation. All of our therapists are available no matter where you are, meaning convenience and distance do not have to be major factors.

No One Has To Know You’re In Therapy

For whatever reason, the stigma surrounding mental illness just won’t go away. While it is certainly more accepted than it once was, many people still feel ashamed of seeing a therapist. While people in Milwaukee are definitely becoming more comfortable with the idea of therapy, stigma still prevents a lot of individuals from finding counseling here.

With ThriveTalk, you can see a therapist without risking being seen. No one even needs to know you’re looking for a therapist. The stigma will no longer keep you out of therapy.

Get Started Today

Finding counseling in Milwaukee has never been easier. Get started today and you’ll be talking to a skilled therapist before you know it. The process is simple and takes no time at all. Everything is set up to make therapy available to everyone who needs it.
