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 Carmel, IN 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 Carmel, IN 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?

Kay hasn’t been herself since she separated from her partner a few months ago. She does her best to carry on as normal, but internally it still feels like there’s a hole where there used to be happiness used to be. Her friends and family are concerned about her wellbeing, but Kay isn’t open to talking about it. The longer that time stretches on, the more it feels like she’s slipping into depression. 

Kay doesn’t want to be distant from the people she cares about, but she’s also not sure what to do about her mental state. After doing some reading online, Kay is debating whether she should talk to a mental health professional about what she’s experiencing. She’s not entirely sure what to expect, but feels like having a professional’s assistance could make a big difference. 

At Thriveworks in Carmel, IN, we help people just like Kay to reclaim their happiness from depression with our therapy and counseling services. Depression can be a disruptive and damaging mental health condition when it’s allowed to flourish. But with professional help, controlling depression and finding relief can become a possibility. 

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

These are just a few of the many ways that depression can manifest itself. If you’re diagnosed by a mental health professional, you may find that your experience varies. Our Thriveworks team in Carmel, IN can not only diagnose depression but also help you find relief. 

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 

Our therapists, counselors, and psychologists are a great option for lots of people, but for others, our online psychiatry program can be an appealing alternative. Psychiatry may help with more severe or persistent forms of depression that may require prescription medication as part of the treatment process.   

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.
