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

Is depression counseling conducted in person or online?

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.

Could I Be Depressed? What Does Depression Feel Like? 

The symptoms of depression vary from person to person, and that’s part of why sharing your experience with our providers is so important. By talking candidly with a therapist, counselor, or psychiatrist, you’re giving them the feedback they need to offer you personalized mental health care. With this in mind, there are several common signs of depression to watch out for, including: 

  • Feeling chronically fatigued 
  • Overeating or avoiding eating 
  • Lack of self-care (i.e. personal hygiene or a clean living environment)
  • Abusing drugs or alcohol to cope with emotional pain 
  • A noted lack of interest in sex, hobbies, or relationships  
  • Feeling distant from loved ones and friends 
  • Decreased work performance

Can Depression Therapy Help Me? 

For many people, attending therapy sessions can often be a great way to move forward while dealing with depression. Therapy at Thriveworks in Carmel, IN with one of our counselors, therapists, or psychologists might be an appealing way for you to work through what’s causing your depression. Our providers will: 

  • Work with you to better understand your depression 
  • Serve as a verbal and emotional outlet for the burdens of this mood disorder
  • Use talk and behavioral therapy to implement coping strategies for you to use in your personal and professional life 

Are There Different Types of Depression? 

“Depression” as a term refers to several different but closely related mood disorders. There are many different forms that depression can take, but some of the most common include: 

  • Major depression: This disorder causes emotional detachment, sadness, hopelessness, and apathy. Those who suffer from major depression may become socially isolated, further exacerbating their condition. It’s what most people think of when they hear the word “depression”.
  • Minor depression: As the name implies, this is less severe than major depression but just as harmful. Because those with this disorder may go long periods without feeling depressed, identifying what’s triggering their sadness can be difficult for those with minor depression.
  • Postpartum depression: Postpartum depression affects women who’ve given birth; those who underwent caesarian sections or had a miscarriage are at higher risk. This disorder can onset immediately or months after childbirth. 
  • Bipolar disorder: Bipolar disorder can cause depression when the mood swings that it causes fluctuate. Those with bipolar disorder may feel extremely happy for a minute, and furious or dejected in the next.
