Starting Depression counseling

What can counseling do for those who suffer with depression?

Depression counseling can help those with major depression, minor depression, postpartum depression, persistent depressive disorder, and more. The providers at Thriveworks in Arlington, TX will develop a unique treatment plan based on your specific experience, needs, and goals.

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, TX 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 Are the Most Common Depression Symptoms?

Depression may look different for you than it does for someone else. That’s because there are several depressive disorders, and each can affect people in different ways.

With that said, here are some common symptoms of depression to look out for:

  • Persistent feelings of sadness
  • Changes in sleep patterns
  • Loss of appetite
  • Low energy levels
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Low self-esteem
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Restlessness
  • Mood swings
  • Substance abuse

If you’re noticing any of the above symptoms, they may be signs that you’re experiencing a depressive episode. When you’re ready, consider seeking depression counseling services from Thriveworks in Arlington, TX.

How Can Depression Therapy Help?

When you meet with a therapist or counselor, the first thing they will do is aim to identify the underlying issues that may be causing your depression.

There are many forms of depression, which can include:

  • Major depression, which is characterized by feelings of all-consuming sadness. It can cause a loss of interest in activities you previously enjoyed and other symptoms like changes in appetite, fatigue, and feelings of worthlessness.
  • Persistent depressive disorder (also known as dysthymia). This type of depression is not as intense as major depression, but it can last for two years or more. People experiencing persistent depressive disorder may experience low energy, low self-esteem, and hopelessness.
  • Bipolar disorder, which is also called manic depression. It is characterized by states of high energy followed by plummeting lows. Highs can include erratic behavior and promiscuity while lows may bring feelings of self-loathing, sadness, and excessive sleepiness.
  • Postpartum depression can occur in the weeks and months after a woman gives birth. The hormonal changes can contribute to mood swings, numbness, and exhaustion.

Once your therapist determines what type of depression you are dealing with, they can identify a therapy program to begin treating your symptoms. This may include talk therapy approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which targets negative behaviors and thought processes and aims to introduce healthier ways of dealing with emotions.

Your provider may also recommend medications such as antidepressants. If this is the case, a psychiatric NP will be able to prescribe that to you and monitor your symptoms to ensure it’s having the desired effect.

After a few sessions with a licensed professional, you may begin to feel as if a weight has been lifted from your shoulders. To get started, contact us at Thriveworks in Arlington, TX.
