Depression Counseling in Decatur, GA—Counselors and Therapists at Thriveworks Decatur

Life will take you up many mountains and through many valleys. But sometimes, the dark seem to go on…and on…and on. Until you’re not sure if you’ll ever get out. Healthyplace.com described struggling with depression like being stuck without anyway to get out, no matter how much you may want to.  

“It feels like everyone else is moving on with their lives while I am stuck here, in this hole that I can’t climb out of.”

You deserve a bright, fulfilling life. Depression can steal that from you one exhausting, consuming day at a time. It’s an uphill battle, but overcoming it is possible! The counselors at Thriveworks Decatur are trained to help you peer through that darkness and find your way back to the life you’ve dreamed of- the one you deserve.

Our counselors understand that the prospect of talking to someone right now is probably the last thing you want to do. Afterall, talking takes energy, and depression doesn’t leave a lot of that left. What if we ask you to think about the future? You aren’t exactly hopeful about it. In fact, maybe you aren’t feeling much of anything right now, just a dull emptiness that doesn’t leave. How can counseling help with that? Or maybe you’ve been fighting this on your own for so long, you’re not sure you’ll be able to let someone else shoulder some of the burden.

Those doubts and fears are ok. They’re normal. We understand reaching out for help is extremely difficult, and we thank you for your courage. Our counselors have seen individuals come in with the same doubts and fears, and still beat their depression. Together, we can navigate your depression and find a way out. There is hope.

Am I Depressed?

There’s a misnomer that depression is simply feeling sad. Anyone who has struggled with it knows it is far from simply feeling “down.” Depression is unique for every individual, shaped by their experiences and personality. There are some tell-tale signs though. If you recognize some of these in yourself or a loved one, know that Decatur counselors are here for you, and you are not alone.

  • Feeling worthless
  • Having no energy (may be called “lazy”)
  • A loss of interest in things that used to bring you joy
  • Mental fog (not thinking straight)
  • Abnormal sleeping patterns (sleeping too much or too little)
  • Unordinary eating habits (eating too much or too little)
  • Irritability
  • Changes in sex drive
  • Feeling down or sad
  • Suicidal thoughts or behavior

There are more symptoms of depression than we have time to list here. It is something no one deserves to live with. It can infiltrate and sabotage all areas of life, from your career to social life to individual passions. If you are at all concerned with your own or a loved one’s mental health, giving Thriveworks Decatur a call can be the first step in regaining control over your life.

How Can We Help?

We want to draw attention to the word help. Unfortunately, we can’t say a magic word and cure you of your depression, no matter how much experience our counselors have with treating depression. But we can have a partnership and walk side-by-side with you on this journey. You have what it takes to overcome depression. And we have a few tools that will make it easier. During a counseling session with Thriveworks Decatur, you may discuss:

  • The root cause of your depression (if it was brought on by an event)
  • Coping strategies
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (changing negative thoughts and detrimental behaviors)
  • How to rewire the way you think about yourself
  • Possible changes to your environment and routine to better your mental health. Things like exercise, healthy eating and good sleep are huge in winning the battle with depression.

Your depression will look unlike anything we’ve seen before, and therefore we will work to create a treatment plan unlike anything we’ve seen before—one that is catered toward your goals and lifestyle. The Thriveworks Decatur counselors strive to form a relationship with clients and will always take a client-first perspective. After all, at the end of the day, you know yourself better than we ever could. (Although spoiler alert- you’re pretty awesome!)

You deserve to live a life free of depression—one where you can feel fully again and look forward to the future. It may seem impossible right now, but with a little extra help from Thriveworks Decatur counselors, you can overcome this depression! We have seen countless strong individuals like you do it before.

We have no waitlist and look forward to hearing from you so we can start this journey of healing.
