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 El Paso, TX 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 El Paso, TX 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?

Do you ever have those days where you wake up feeling sad, unmotivated, and tired? Of course you do—we all have those days every now and then. Depression, though, is much more severe. Rather than having an off day here and there, depression is characterized by a deep despair, loss of interest, and other harmful symptoms that last at least two weeks (and often, longer). 

Other harmful symptoms include sleep trouble, harmful changes in appetite and/or weight, lack of motivation, exhaustion, fatigue, withdrawal from other people, inability to focus, and more. In summary, depression makes life unpleasant and disturbs important areas like an individual’s relationships and job. 

Depression can be absolutely brutal. Perhaps the most difficult part is that many people don’t realize or fail to admit that they might be depressed. Many of us are hardwired to sweep our problems under the rug and hope that they’ll resolve themselves. When it comes to depression, many of us assume they’re fleeting feelings that will eventually pass. This just isn’t the case, though.

To properly manage and heal from your depression, it’s important that you talk to a mental health professional. In fact, there are mental health professionals who specialize in treating depression. If you’d like to consult a depression therapist or psychologist, please reach out to Thriveworks Counseling in El Paso, TX. Our team can assess your symptoms and help you manage your depression and other mental health challenges.

Am I Depressed? What Are Common Depression Symptoms?

We listed many of the signs and symptoms of depression above. However, as we said earlier, it’s often difficult to recognize these in yourself. Consider the following questions to better understand whether you might be displaying depression symptoms:

  • Do you feel weighed down by a deep despair that’s unlike anything you’ve felt before?
  • Have you lost interest in daily activities, such as going to work or talking to your loved ones?
  • Have you isolated yourself from your friends and your family members?
  • Are you struggling to fall or stay asleep at night?
  • Have you exhibited any changes in your diet or weight?
  • Are you struggling to find the motivation to do much of anything?
  • Are you experiencing feelings of hopelessness?
  • Do you feel restless and/or exhausted?
  • Are you struggling to focus at work or otherwise?
  • Have you had any thoughts about suicide or self-harm?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, we suggest that you talk to a mental health professional. We understand that doing so can feel frightening. However, it’s a step in the right direction and toward getting the answers and the help that you need.

Our depression therapists and psychologists at Thriveworks in El Paso, TX are here to help you. They’ll offer their unbridled support during this most difficult time.

What Type of Depression Do I Have?

What some people don’t realize is that there are different types of depression. Here are a few of the most common:

  • Minor and major depression
  • Postpartum depression
  • Seasonal affective disorder
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Persistent depressive disorder
  • Premenstrual dysphoric disorder

The symptoms we’ve already listed can occur with the above types of depression. However, they each have other specifics; for example, postpartum depression occurs in moms after the birth of their baby. And seasonal affective disorder often occurs in the colder, darker seasons.

If you feel depressed or you think that you’re at risk of developing any given form of depression, please reach out to Thriveworks Counseling in El Paso, TX. We’re always here to help.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
