Need more help deciding?

Life is a mosaic of good times and bad times. Sometimes, we’re on a high, and other times we feel like we couldn’t get any lower. But what if the lows keep getting lower… and lower… and don’t seem to let up? It can feel like you’re in a hole so deep you’re never going to get out. The all-consuming exhaustion of depression makes it difficult to overcome. But recovery is possible. The counselors at Thriveworks Columbus are here to support and guide you back to the fulfilling, happy life that you deserve.

When you don’t have the energy to get up out of bed, the prospect of leaving your house to go talk to someone may feel impossible. In fact, when you think about it more, you’re not even sure counseling will help. The future isn’t exactly hopeful right now. Or maybe this weight has been apart of you for so long, you’re not sure you can let it go.

Reaching out for help is a huge act of bravery and strength, especially when you’re fighting depression. The depression counselors at Thriveworks Columbus thank you for taking this leap. It’s a testament to your strength: the same strength that will carry you through your depression and out on the other side. We’ve seen it happen time after time. If you’re fighting depression: there is hope.

Am I Depressed?

Depression is not just a case of the blues. You don’t even have to feel sad to be depressed. It can come in many shapes and sizes, feeding off of your unique circumstances and personality. There are a few signs that are common though. Thriveworks Columbus can help if you recognize any of these symptoms in yourself or in a loved one:

  • Feeling worthless
  • Lack of energy
  • A loss of interest in things that used to bring you joy
  • Mental fog
  • Abnormal sleep patterns
  • Unordinary eating habits
  • Irritability
  • Changes in sex drive
  • Feeling down or sad

These are just the most common symptoms of depression. Whatever your exact symptoms, depression hits hard. No part of your life is exempt from its destructive influence. Your job, family life, and individual happiness can be negatively affected. You deserve better. Calling Thriveworks Columbus could be your first step in taking your life back.

How Can Thriveworks Columbus Help with Depression?

The Depression Counselors at Thriveworks Columbus have seen many people fight and win against their depression. We can’t promise you a magic cure, and it’ll take more than one session. But we can promise you a partnership and a never-wavering companion as we walk this journey together. Of course, we also have many professional tools that can make that journey easier. For example, a depression counseling session with Thriveworks Columbus might discuss:

  • The root cause of your depression (if there is one)
  • Coping strategies
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (changing negative thoughts and detrimental behaviors)
  • Changing your self-image to a positive one
  • Shifting your environment to increase your mental health. Exercise, healthy eating and good sleep are all weapons against depression.

What you’re struggling with is unique, and we will meet you with a unique therapy plan. Thriveworks Columbus is a client-centered practice, which means we believe in forming relationships and keeping the focus of a counseling session on you.

You deserve a happy, fulfilling life. You deserve to feel good about yourself and where you’re heading. Sound impossible? It’s not! With a little extra support, you can make it there.

I recently started utilizing Thriveworks and my counselor is amazing! I have seen a few therapists over the years, but she is the first that I feel has real tools that work for me. I am an overly analytical person, and she has introduced me to so many new ways to think about various problems, new and old, that have given me a fresh perspective. Today was the second day in my short time here that I left with that "mind blown" feeling, and today I couldn’t believe the positive feelings I had on these new approaches she provided me. Also, which is the best part of course, the office is so peaceful and calming, the staff are all incredible, and just walking in the door makes me de-stress quite a bit. I definitely recommend giving Thriveworks a shot if you are looking for a welcoming place! Go Buckeyes!
