As a woman who has had mental health struggles, I understand how challenges with mental health can affect every aspect of day-to-day life.

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 Aurora, CO 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 Aurora, CO 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 have therapy for depression?

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.

Need more help deciding?

If one thing is certain, it’s that we all struggle and experience difficult emotions. The good days come, but so do the bad. And sometimes, the bad days stay a little or (a lot) longer than we’d like. Still, it’s important that we do our best to accept, understand, and manage these difficult situations and emotions. The problem is that the sadness or despair we feel can linger and everything we try to do to stop it or get through it doesn’t work. In fact, this despair can grow worse and we might experience harmful symptoms as a result—physical, mental, and emotional—that make everyday living hard, impossible even.

This is when it’s time to reach out for help. If you feel a deep despair for weeks at a time, and you have lost your interest or joy in day-to-day life, you might be depressed. Depression is a mental illness that often requires treatment from a medical professional. The good news is that there are depression therapists who specialize in and dedicate their work to helping people just like you.

“Depression is the most unpleasant thing I have ever experienced… It is that absence of being able to envisage that you will ever be cheerful again. The absence of hope. That very deadened feeling, which is so very different from feeling sad. Sad hurts, but it’s a healthy feeling. It is a necessary thing to feel. Depression is very different.” –J.K. Rowling

Thriveworks Aurora has depression therapists on staff who know just how to help you. They will develop a treatment plan specifically for you, based on your unique symptoms and needs. Our providers have the right knowledge, skillset, and experience to help you manage your symptoms and meet those needs. Starting a partnership with a Thriveworks Aurora provider can prove to change your life for the better. See for yourself. Call today to schedule an appointment. You can reach us at (303) 731-3701.

What Is Depression? Am I Depressed?

Depression can look and feel different in different individuals. That being said, if you are depressed, you have exhibited a significant change in behavior. It’s important that you meet with a medical professional to talk about your symptoms, including this change in behavior. Here is a list of common depression symptoms:

  • Deep sadness or despair
  • Lack of interest in daily or one beloved activities
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Changes in appetite or weight
  • Guilt
  • Hopelessness
  • Isolation
  • Lack of concentration
  • Difficulty sleeping

These symptoms can be damaging to your life. Know that you don’t have to just accept them or try to work through them alone. The depression therapists at Thriveworks Aurora specialize in helping clients to manage their symptoms and ultimately live a happier, healthier life despite depression.
