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 Gilbert, AZ 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 Gilbert, AZ 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?

Lewis hasn’t felt like himself for some time. He recently moved and has been having difficulty adjusting to the changes in his social life and surroundings. While he enjoys his new job and is even closer to his family than he was before, something just feels off. He doesn’t enjoy many of the activities he used to take part in—his artwork and golf clubs sit untouched in the corner. 

Though Lewis has been waiting to wake up and feel a sudden change, after several months, it’s beginning to look like he needs to take action. In fact, Lewis is worried that he’s depressed. He feels uncertain about what to do next, but he knows that if left untreated, depression could harm other aspects of his life, besides his mood. After some consideration, Lewis has decided to talk to a mental health professional about what he’s worried are symptoms of depression. 

Like Lewis, you may be interested in the ways that a mental health professional can help you with your depression. At Thriveworks in Gilbert, AZ, our counselor, therapists, and psychiatrist treat depression on an individual basis, offering personalized mental health care that’s suited to fit your needs. 

Am I Depressed? What Does Depression Feel Like?

Depression can manifest differently for everyone, so it’s important to talk openly with a provider about what’s bothering you. But with that in mind, there are common symptoms that might indicate that someone is depressed, including: 

  • Feeling chronically fatigued 
  • A noted lack of interest in sex, hobbies, or relationships  
  • Feeling distant from loved ones and friends 
  • Decreased work performance
  • Overeating or avoiding eating 
  • Lack of self-care (i.e. personal hygiene or a clean living environment)
  • Abusing drugs or alcohol to cope with emotional pain

There’s no need to be concerned if you’re not seeing what you’ve experienced above; these are just a few of the many different signs of depression. If you’re diagnosed with depression by a provider at Thriveworks in Gilbert, AZ you may find that your personal experience varies. 

How Can Depression Therapy Help Me? 

For many people, talking with a therapist or counselor helps to manage and mitigate the symptoms of depression, which are often disruptive and harmful to our everyday lives. Our counselors and therapists at Thriveworks in Gilbert, AZ can assist those with depression by: 

  • Creating a professional connection with their client to better understand their depression 
  • Serving as a verbal and emotional outlet for those burdened by this mood disorder
  • Using talk and behavioral therapy to implement coping strategies for clients  

For other clients with more persistent or severe forms of depression, connecting with a psychiatrist is more beneficial. Psychiatrists are a specialized type of provider— they’re: 

  • Medical doctors who are licensed to conduct depression therapy sessions 
  • Able to use helpful prescription medicine and therapy as needed to assist people 
  • Often a better option for those with more severe cases of depression

Ultimately, whichever provider type you’re paired with, you’ll receive top-quality mental health care—something that thousands of people across the country have come to expect from Thriveworks.

What Type of Depression Do I Have?

“Depression” as we commonly think of it actually refers to a group of closely related emotional disorders, whose effects vary wildly. Though there are many types of depression, our therapists and psychiatrists commonly treat: 

  • Minor depression: As the name implies, this is less severe than major depression but just as harmful. Because those with this disorder may go long periods without feeling depressed, identifying what’s triggering their sadness can be difficult for those with minor depression.
  • Postpartum depression: Postpartum depression affects women who’ve given birth; those who underwent caesarian sections or had a miscarriage are at higher risk. This disorder can onset immediately or months after childbirth. 
  • Major depression: This disorder causes emotional detachment, sadness, hopelessness, and apathy. Those who suffer from major depression may become socially isolated, further exacerbating their condition. It’s what most people think of when they hear the word “depression”.
  • Bipolar disorder: Bipolar disorder can cause depression when the mood swings that it causes fluctuate. Those with bipolar disorder may feel extremely happy for a minute, and furious or dejected in the next.
