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 Dover, DE 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 Dover, DE 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.

Need more help deciding?

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. (302) 246-5527

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)
  • Irritability
  • 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.

I’ve been searching for the right fit. Had almost given up after 2 unsuccessful relationships with other counselors in the last year. Thriveworks makes scheduling easy, takes my insurance (Aetna), and offers quality, invested care. For the first time, I look forward to counseling sessions and feel so much better after! Hend Salah is helping me see things differently and get my life back on track.
