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 Cheyenne, WY 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 Cheyenne, WY 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?

It’s difficult for friends and family to really understand depression when they’re not going through it themselves. After all, we all have low points in our lives — days where we feel blue and need a pep talk or some time to ourselves before moving on.

But depression is different. Sometimes it can be hard to put your finger on exactly when the mental shift occurred, but all of a sudden there is a deep sadness hanging over you that won’t go away. Maybe you start to avoid friends and family or have trouble getting to work on time. Perhaps your favorite pastimes hold no interest for you anymore. Just getting out of bed in the mornings might become an overwhelming hurdle.

If you’re suffering from symptoms of depression, you’re not alone. Depressive disorders affect millions of people every day. While some people suffer these symptoms silently, you don’t have to go it alone. Seeking out depression counseling is a step in the right direction to conquer this dark and difficult mood disorder.

Take actress Ashley Judd, for example. She struggled with depression, experienced suicidal thoughts, and eventually grew sick and tired of always feeling sick and tired. She sought out support and swears her decision to get help saved her life. She now speaks openly about her struggles and encourages others in her position to access mental health services, too.

What Are Common Warning Signs You Have Depression?

Feelings of depression can affect people of all ages and backgrounds but no two people struggle with the mental disorder in precisely the same way. However, there are common symptoms professionals look for when diagnosing depression. They include:

  • Feeling like there is no hope
  • Losing interest in things you love
  • Becoming reckless
  • Experiencing low self-esteem
  • Having difficulty sleeping or sleeping too much
  • Becoming easily irritated or angered
  • Changing eating habits that result in weight loss or weight gain
  • Struggling to concentrate
  • Contemplating suicide or self-harm
  • Experiencing addictive behaviors or substance abuse
  • Persistent feelings of sadness

If these symptoms of depression ring true for you, you don’t have to accept them as your lot in life. You can choose to take action. Seeking counseling for depression can give you back the life you had before your mental health started weighing on you. For many people, talking with a therapist at Thriveworks in Cheyenne, WY is the first step to a healthier and happier life.

Can I Benefit From Depression Therapy?

Depression therapy can give you the key to unlocking the door to freedom from sorrow and dark thoughts. You don’t have to be trapped in a cycle of sadness. Whether you are experiencing symptoms of major depressive disorder, postpartum depression, or another type of depressive condition, your therapist will develop a treatment plan that is the right fit for you.

You may benefit from one or a combination of treatment options, including medication, talk therapy, changes in sleep and eating habits, coping mechanisms, and more.

Talk therapy is a particularly common component of treatment plans for mental illnesses like depression. Some forms of talk therapy include:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
  • Interpersonal therapy
  • Psychotherapy
  • Emotion-focused therapy

When you work with a therapist who specializes in treating depression and other mental health conditions, you don’t have to feel like you are all alone anymore. It’s much easier to cut your problems down to size when you can speak with a supportive, compassionate professional with experience treating people in your shoes.

When you’re ready to take the next step for your mental health, reach out to us at Thriveworks in Cheyenne, WY to make an appointment.
