We all have good days and bad days. But what if that bad day turns into a bad week, or a bad month, and suddenly you look up and realize… you can’t really remember what a good day looks like. Struggling with depression can feel like fighting for a foothold in a mudslide—every step you take gets you even more entrenched in it.
You deserve to have more good days. More days filled with hope, laughter, and fulfillment. Depression can slip in and take those from you, leaving you feeling exhausted and consumed. But there is a way out. It’s not easy, but overcoming depression is possible! Thriveworks Depression Counseling in Dover helps clients work through their depression and back to the life they always imagined for themselves—even on the days that depression blinds them to everything except the next second.

Our counselors realize that right now, talking to someone is probably the last thing on your mind. As if you have the energy for that! We understand that depression can steal all your life and energy, making the idea of thinking about a future or exploring your emotions sound near impossible. And maybe you’ve been feeling like this for so long, you’re not sure anything will ever change. It’s ok to think like that! They are normal doubts and fears to have about counseling for depression. Taking the step to talk to someone takes courage and is difficult, to say the least. We want to respect how far you’ve come already. Our depression counselors have partnered with countless people with the same doubts and fears and have helped them cope with, and even overcome, depression. There is hope.
What are the Symptoms of Depression?
Depression is far more than just feeling sad and down. It affects everyone differently, feeding off of their individual experiences and personality. Some symptoms remain true throughout depression though. If you think you or a loved one may be struggling with depression, the Dover counselors don’t want you to walk alone. We are here for you. Some of those more common signs of depression include:
- 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)
- Changes in sex drive
- Feeling down or sad
- Suicidal thoughts or behavior
Of course, this is only the start of all the ways depression can impact your life. It can impair everything from your career to social life to individual passions. It’s truly something no one should have to live with. Including you! Thriveworks Depression Counseling in Dover is ready to help you take back your life from the snares of depression.
