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 Cherry Hill, NJ 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 Cherry Hill, NJ 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.

Depression’s Many Forms

Depression can develop in anyone, anywhere, but it can also develop in many different forms. Here is a look at just six ways depression may manifest in an individual’s life.

1) Major Depressive Disorder
When most people think of depression, they are thinking of what The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5) calls Major Depressive Disorder. When people have Major Depressive Disorder, they will exhibit at least five of the following diagnostics on more days than not, for the majority of the day, and for two continuous weeks:

  • Difficulty concentrating or thinking.
  • Substantial weight loss or gain.
  • Feelings of intense hopelessness, emptiness, sadness, despair.
  • Lost pleasure in everyday activities.
  • Disrupted sleep patterns (hypersomnia or insomnia).
  • Appetite changes.
  • Loss of energy/fatigue.
  • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, or self-hatred.
  • Changes in levels of activity.
  • Thoughts of suicide and/or death.

2) Minor Depression
Like its name sounds, Minor Depression is a less acute form of Major Depressive Disorder. Five symptoms must be present for a Major Depressive Disorder diagnosis, but two must be present for a Minor Depression diagnosis. Of those two, lost interest in everyday activities or difficult emotions (hopelessness, emptiness, sadness, or despair) must be one. Despite being a less acute form of depression, Minor Depression is still a serious mental illness and often needs medical intervention.

3) Persistent Depressive Disorder
This form of depression may also be called chronic depression or dysthymia. As its name suggests, Persistent Depressive Disorder can last for many years. Its symptoms must occur for at least two years to be diagnosed. Those symptoms include:

  • Lack of motivation
  • Automatic expectation of failure
  • Mild anxiety
  • Feelings of hopelessness or worthlessness
  • Insomnia or hypersomnia
  • Unstable mood
  • Loss or gain in weight of 5 percent or more within a month
  • Negative self-talk
  • Fatigue
  • Impaired concentration

Persistent Depressive Disorder’s symptoms differ from Major Depressive Disorder’s, and the two can co-occur.

4) Bipolar Disorder
Bipolar Disorder cycles people between two extremes: a depressive state and a manic state. That is why it is also called Manic Depression. The depressive state has the same symptoms as Major Depressive Disorder. The manic state involves symptoms such as…

  • Engaging in risky, pleasurable activities
  • Loquaciousness
  • Increased self-esteem
  • Decreased need for sleep
  • Racing thoughts
  • Being easily angered
  • Psychomotor agitation
  • Increased goal-directed activities

5) Postpartum Depression
Women who are about to or have recently given birth are vulnerable to Postpartum Depression. It usually develops between the third trimester of pregnancy and the first month after childbirth, but it can continue long after. Its symptoms overlap with Major Depressive Disorder, but they also include…

  • Intense worry about the baby
  • Disinterest in the baby
  • Negative feelings toward the baby
  • The inability to care for herself or her baby
  • Thoughts about harming the baby
  • Fear of being alone with her baby

6) Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)
During winter or dark months, depression may take the form of Seasonal Affective Disorder. SAD most often strikes during the winter and its symptoms are similar to dysthymia and Major Depressive Disorder. A diagnosis requires these symptoms to be felt in two successive years. When spring and summer come, the symptoms often are relieved until the following winter.

I initially had a fantastic experience with Thriveworks, and I was thrilled with the service they provided. My journey to find the right therapist was successful, and I happily recommended Thriveworks to friends and family. However, my positive experience took a turn when I discovered that the therapist I connected with does not accept my insurance. Embarking on the path to seek help required a lot of courage on my part, and I fully committed to the process. In just 4 or 5 sessions, I developed a strong connection with my therapist. Unfortunately, the realization that she could no longer continue due to insurance constraints has left me feeling disappointed. Now, I find myself having to start the therapeutic journey all over again, and this has diminished my overall satisfaction with the service.
