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 Bend, OR 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 Bend, OR 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.

Need more help deciding?

Overcoming depression is a lot like running a long-distance race. No one wakes up one day and completes their first marathon on their very first try. To run a marathon, you need a few things to get started:

  • Endurance to keep going when things get tough
  • Patience to learn from the mistakes you make
  • Commitment to your schedule and to your goals

Much like running a long-distance race, overcoming depression requires endurance, patience, and commitment as well as a strong and determined will. While running requires you to exercise your body, treatment for depression requires you to exercise your brain.

And just as runners rely on coaches and support systems, so do people with depression rely on mental health providers. Psychiatrists, psychologists, and other licensed mental health professionals have the expertise and training required to help you achieve your mental wellness goals. Let our Thriveworks team members in Bend, OR help you get your life back on track. Reach out today to get started.

What Are the Main Types of Depression?

The word “depression” is often used as a catchall phrase for a number of depressive disorders. The truth is, different forms of depression can impact our minds and bodies in different ways.

Some of the most common forms of depression include:

  • Major depressive disorder (MDD): Marked by frequent and intense feelings of hopelessness and sadness, major depressive disorder can make it difficult to engage in tasks you once enjoyed. MDD can be caused by a number of factors, including genetics, brain chemistry, substance abuse, stress, and trauma.
  • Persistent depressive disorder (PDD): PDD may not be as severe as MDD but can last much longer and impact your concentration, relationships, and drive. PDD can be caused by a number of factors, including genetics, major life transitions, stress, and substance abuse.
  • Postpartum depression (PPD): After childbirth, many women feel overly anxious, helpless, and lethargic. People with postpartum depression often have difficulties forming bonds with their child and may have thoughts of self-harm depending on the severity of their disorder. PPD may be caused by a hormonal imbalance or a history of depression.
  • Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD): This disorder occurs in the autumn or winter months and can result in weight gain, isolation, and sadness. SAD is caused, at least in part, by the lack of sunlight during the colder months.

How Does Depression Therapy Work?

Psychiatrists, psychologists, and other mental health experts work to provide the mental and emotional care you need to reduce your symptoms and move forward. Treating depression is often multifaceted; it may require medication in conjunction with therapy such as light therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, or psychoanalysis. Medication can help to reduce symptoms in the short term while therapy can teach you coping mechanisms to help you stave off depression symptoms in the long term.

No matter the process, therapy can be the first step toward relief. Your therapist will assess, diagnose, and treat your disorder as carefully and efficiently as possible. They may also provide prevention tools that you can take with you as you continue your wellness journey. Schedule an appointment with us at Thriveworks in Bend, OR to get started.
