What is your go-to approach for depression counseling?

My go-to approach for treating depression is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). I find the best benefit in CBT because it helps identify and reshape the thought and behavior patterns that contribute to depression.

What tools do you teach in depression counseling?

I teach the following tools in depression counseling:

  • Providing psychoeducation: Helping the client understand what depression is and how it affects them.
  • Behavior: Goal is to help the client do activities that will promote positive thoughts and a positive mood.
  • Thoughts: Goal is to identify inaccurate, illogical, or unhelpful thoughts and replace them with more adaptive and helpful thoughts and beliefs.
  • Feelings: Goal is to teach skills to manage or reduce distressing feelings and motivate individuals to engage in treatment. These skills are not a substitute for changing thoughts or behavioral activation.

How do you know when a client is making meaningful progress in depression counseling?

I know a client is making meaningful progress in depression counseling when their symptoms are assessed as decreased, daily function improves, and relapses are limited.

What can clients do in their personal time to supplement depression counseling?

Clients can supplement their time in depression counseling with coping tools to help them through life’s challenges. Therapy teaches clients to become aware of and adjust negative patterns, which can help them reframe their thinking during moments of heightened anxiety or panic. It can also provide new coping skills, like meditation or journaling, for those struggling with depression.

What should someone do to prepare for starting depression counseling?

To prepare for your first depression counseling session, you can:

  • Write down questions: Come up with some specific things you want to ask.
  • Keep a log or journal: Keeping track of your mood changes in a diary can be helpful both to you and your therapist.
  • Don't forget about your physical symptoms: You might not think that they're relevant, but physical symptoms are often signs of depression.
  • Get help from friends or family members: Ask them about changes they've noticed in your behavior.
  • Choose a secure and comfortable space and time for therapy: Make sure you have a private and quiet space where you can focus without interruptions.

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 Grand Prairie, 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 Grand Prairie, 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 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.

Depression — What Are the Causes and Symptoms?

Depression is a mood disorder, meaning it’s a disorder that primarily affects your emotional state. That’s why people can’t “snap out of” a depressive disorder. To alleviate the potency of your thoughts during a depressive episode, people usually need guidance and healthy coping mechanisms.

While it’s unknown what the exact causes of depressive disorders are, what we do know is that factors such as traumatic events, gender, genetic predispositions, and other physical and mental illnesses can have an influence on depression symptoms. There are many different symptoms that can indicate you’re dealing with depression, including:

  • Feelings of guilt, helplessness, and pessimism
  • Fatigue, insomnia, or hypersomnia
  • Low-self esteem
  • Trouble concentrating and making decisions
  • Loss of interest in hobbies you once found pleasurable
  • Appetite loss or overeating
  • Substance abuse
  • Thoughts of suicide or self-harm

Different types of depression can be diagnosed based on what symptoms you experience, when you experience them, and the amount of time you experience them. Some of these include:

  • Major depressive disorder
  • Persistent depressive disorder
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Postpartum depression
  • Seasonal affective disorder

Consulting with one of our licensed mental health professionals at Thriveworks in Grand Prairie, TX, will allow you to gain insight into what kind of depression you might be facing and how to work through it.

How Can Depression Therapy Help?

When you start therapy or counseling, your provider will develop a treatment plan that addresses your specific symptoms. This means that treating depression can look a bit different for everyone.

Generally, treatment methodologies like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) or dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) can significantly benefit people with depression. These forms of therapy help you learn to cope with and overcome negative thought patterns.

You might learn to implement balanced self-talk and accurate self-evaluation, which can help you find more peace and control over your emotional responses. It is also common for talk therapy to be supplemented with medication to help you best manage your depression.

At Thriveworks in Grand Prairie, TX, you can meet with your counselor through in-person or online sessions. Having a person to provide you with individualized care can be instrumental to taking control of your mental health.
