Has anyone tried online therapy?

Has anyone tried online therapy like talk space or better help? Are they any good or just a scam to make money?

Betterhelp rejected me as not suitable for online therapy (likely because of suicidal thoughts).

Talkspace seems like a scam. I wrote lots to a 'therapist' who then told me all the pricing but would not discuss how the therapy would work or if they thought I could be helped. She just kept saying "that's something you'll discuss once signed up and matched to a therapist" to which I ask was she then not a therapist but a sales person.

I suspect if I do pay the over $100 per month I'll get matched with someone at random.with no real plan of how to tackle my issues.

That said I've run out of options so might have to go with it after all.
