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 Boca Raton, FL is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

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?

Depression is one of the most common mental illnesses in the world today. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), over 300 million people worldwide suffer from the condition, which is characterized by a deep despair and loss of interest in day to day activities. Depression often comes with harmful symptoms in addition to this sadness, like insomnia and other sleep problems, feelings of worthlessness, fatigue, and suicidal thoughts. Depression, in a nutshell, can disrupt the life we know and love.

“I didn’t want to wake up. I was having a much better time asleep. And that’s really sad. It was almost like a reverse nightmare, like when you wake up from a nightmare you’re so relieved. I woke up into a nightmare.” –Ned Vizzini

The quote above is an excerpt from Ned Vizzini’s book “It’s Kind of a Funny Story.” While the character who spoke these words is fictional, this story was inspired by the author’s own experience with depression. It illustrates just how difficult life can be with depression, as well as the importance of getting help when one feels this way.

Am I Depressed? What Are the Symptoms?

If you are experiencing symptoms of depression, it’s important that you set up an appointment with a medical professional. To do so, you must first understand and recognize these symptoms. According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5), you must present five or more of the following in the same two weeks to be diagnosed with depression:

  • Depressed mood nearly every day, demonstrated by sadness, hopelessness, emptiness
  • Loss or lack of interest in day to day activities
  • Significant changes in weight or appetite
  • Insomnia or hypersomnia
  • Fatigue or a loss of energy
  • Feeling worthless
  • Irritability
  • Diminished ability to think straight
  • Suicidal thoughts or thoughts about death

Now that you know what depression entails, be sure to speak with a professional if you begin to exhibit any of these symptoms. The sooner you begin treatment, the better. A depression therapist or psychologist at Thriveworks Boca Raton  in Palm Beach can help you manage your symptoms and improve overall wellbeing. Reach out today to begin.

Why Am I Depressed? Potential Causes

There is not one simple cause of depression. Instead, there are multiple factors involved. For example, the following can contribute to the development of depression:

  1. Your environment: Take a second to think: Does your environment support your health and wellbeing? One’s environment can lead to depression. For example, if you surround yourself with people who have unhealthy habits, you might suffer as a result.
  2. Genetics: It’s also possible that genetics play a role in depression. If your parents have suffered with depression, or your siblings, your risk of developing the condition is two or three times greater than the average person.
  3. Temperament: Additionally, it’s possible for an individual to feel depressed due to their negative affinity, or due to their inability to properly process negative emotions. In other words, if someone doesn’t know how to cope with anger, sadness, and other emotions, it might lead to their feeling depressed.

The above factors can contribute to depression, but it’s important to keep in mind that there isn’t always a clear cause or fair explanation. It’s also important to know that self-care goes a long way and to prioritize it every day. Self-care paired with depression therapy at Thriveworks Boca Raton in Palm Beach, FL can help you become a happier, healthier version of you again.

Pamela really helped me through some difficult issues; she helped me to understand the people in my life and how to interact with them and understand why they are how to understand them. With that knowledge, I am better able to interact. It is very helpful to have someone I can share everything with. And Pamela is that person for me.

My husband and I sought counseling due to several significant issues in our marriage. We were distraught and on the verge of divorce. Jeannie's approach to marriage counseling led us through a process that changed my perspective on my husband's actual needs and his to my needs. We didn't hear what the other was truly saying! I would highly recommend Jeannie to work with any couple from minor issues to major issues in their marriage.
