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 Charlottesville, VA 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 Charlottesville, VA 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?

Depression can strike anyone at anytime, and it can be triggered by a staggering variety of causes. Perhaps the loss of a friendship triggers the onset of depression, or maybe the death of a loved one, a move to different city, or the loss of a job – even the change of seasons is proven to have the potential of leaving people with feelings of isolation and depression. Those who haven’t been truly depressed sometimes believe that depression is just a synonym for sadness; however, the experience of depression is a far cry from the simply being sad. Depression is characterized by the complete and total loss of hope that happiness and joy can ever return to your life.

When Depression enters your life, it takes a firm grasp and can lead you to believe that there is no chance of escape, no hope of your life ever returning to the way it was before. You may have difficulty even remembering what things were like before you were depressed.

“Was I ever really happy?”

It’s a question you ask yourself all too often. It seems that there is no hope of returning to a state of happiness and joy – a state of being that you can scarcely recall. But the answer to that plaguing question is a resounding “Yes!” You don’t have to remain in a state of depression any longer!

I have had the pleasure of working with Hiawatha as a colleague. His easy going manner and warmth as a clinician helps him to quickly connect with others. It is clear to me that Hiawatha cares a great deal for those he supports.

Reaching out to Thriveworks was a great decision. The service is excellent and the representative matched me with the best counselor for my needs. I have to admit that I was skeptical at first, but I was pleasantly surprised when I met Anita Dean. She is very knowledgeable, professional, and genuinely cares about others. I have observed that she doesn't create cookie cutter plans. Instead, she creates a plan specific to the needs of her her clients. My husband and I lost our sweet family pet of over 15 1/2 years and it also caused the loss of a child to resurface. Anita, has handled my situation with care and assisted me as I walked through the grief process. I am so grateful.
