What can counseling do for those who suffer with depression?

Is it worth going to therapy for depression?

It is absolutely worth going to therapy for depression — depression counseling helps people better manage their symptoms and get back to living happier lives again.

How does depression counseling work?

Depression counseling works by helping people pinpoint life problems, distorted thought patterns, and other causes of their depression, then process and work through them in order to mitigate the negative effects those factors have on their lives.

Signs of depression

Common signs of depression include:

  • Consistent low mood
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Oversleeping or difficulty sleeping
  • Changes in diet (eating much more or less)
  • Withdrawal and isolation
  • Feelings of guilt or worthlessness
  • Feelings of hopelessness
  • Loss of interest in previous hobbies or activities
  • Excessive substance use

Is depression counseling conducted in person or online?

Thriveworks depression counseling in Arlington, VA is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How often should you attend depression therapy sessions?

Depression counseling can last for a few weeks, months, or longer, dependent on the severity of one’s depression as well as their needs and preferences.

How much does depression counseling cost?

At Thriveworks, we take most major forms of insurance, which means that many of our clients only pay a $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.

What Does Depression Look Like? Am I Depressed?

Depression can look different from one person to the next. One person might struggle to fall or stay asleep and experience a lack of appetite, as well as withdrawal from their loved ones. Another person might sleep all day, lose interest in work, and feel anxious. It’s important to remember that depression symptoms can vary on a case-by-case basis; however, there are common symptoms to keep an eye out for. These include:

  • Feelings of hopelessness
  • Loss of interest in day-to-day activities
  • Irritability or mood changes
  • Loss or lack of energy
  • Reckless behavior
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Changes in appetite or weight
  • Sleep changes

If feel unhappy, or depressed and are exhibiting any combination of the above symptoms, you might have depression.
