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 Austin, 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 Austin, 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.

How Counseling Can Help Depression – Therapists in Austin

There are some mornings when Linda can barely get out of bed due to sleepiness from insomnia the night before. She knows she needs to go to work and usually manages to drag herself to the office, but occasionally she even misses work. When her friends call she rarely agrees to go out, and she doesn’t engage in hobbies she used to love.

Depression is one of the most painful—and most common—mental disorders in the United States. It sucks the joy out of life. Despite what some may think, depression isn’t just “the blues” and people suffering from it can’t just snap out of it. It’s a real disorder that typically requires treatment to recover. Therapy for depression is an important, effective step to take to begin reclaiming your life.

How Counseling Can Help Depression

Depression can make you feel deeply isolated, but it’s important to know you’re not alone. Your loved ones may not completely understand, but they want you to feel better, and professional help from counselors who do understand, who also want you to feel better, is available.

According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA), depression affects approximately 14.8 million American adults in a given year. Depression is debilitating. It can not only make it more difficult to achieve your goals, it can also make something as simple as waking up and getting ready for work seem insurmountable. Thriveworks Austin wants to help you chase the dark cloud away and become one of the thousands of people every year that overcome depression. If you’re suffering, don’t wait any longer to ask for help.

What Are the Symptoms of Depression?

Depression can be triggered by a variety of factors, such as genetics, abuse, the loss of a loved one, and seasonal changes. Depression is most often associated with feelings of sadness, but it has a number of other physical and emotional symptoms. Some of those symptoms include:

  • Persistent feelings of hopelessness or guilt
  • Irritability
  • Insomnia
  • Loss of appetite
  • Loss of interest in hobbies
  • Decreased libido

Depression isn’t something you want to tackle alone — it’s important to seek the help of a professional counselor.

Counseling for Depression Can Help

Have you ever used the term “my depression?” If you’ve been suffering from depression for long enough, it can feel like it’s a part of you. But it’s important to remember that depression is an illness. And like most illnesses, it can be treated — and beaten.

The first thing Thriveworks Austin depression counselors will do is get to know as much about you as possible — your hopes, your dreams, what makes you happy or sad, and how the life you want differs from the life you have. Learning about you will enable your counselor to help you more effectively. From that first step, you and your counselor will work to uncover the root cause of your depression. Once the root cause is found, your counselor will help you identify any negative thought or behavior patterns that are reinforcing the depression. Finally, once those patterns are identified, your therapist will help you change them to more positive thoughts and behaviors that can result in healthier feelings. Depending on the cause of your depression, your therapist may teach you coping skills to help you manage certain triggering situations.

Thriveworks Austin counselors are skilled at helping people with all types of depression caused by many different reasons. Whatever is at the root of your feelings, know that your therapist is able to help you. You aren’t the only one suffering, but many people have received help and gone on to live fulfilling, healthy lives, and you can too.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
