What is your go-to approach for depression counseling?

It is important for clients to understand the connection between their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors to manage their depression symptoms and live a meaningful life. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques can help clients process their thoughts and emotions and learn practical tools that can help them cope with depression in a healthy way.

What tools do you teach in depression counseling?

Psycho-education on depression, cognitive challenging, healthy coping skills, mindfulness, and community/social engagement are some techniques that I use to help clients overcome their symptoms of depression.

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

Clients who are making progress in depression counseling start having more interest and pleasure in doing things they used to enjoy. They also will report feeling more hopeful and motivated.

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

Clients can supplement their time in depression counseling with family support, exercise, journaling, and self-care.

What should someone do to prepare for starting depression counseling?

Clients can create a list of their current areas of concerns and things they would like to accomplish in therapy.

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 Greenville, SC 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 Greenville, SC 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.

What Is Depression?

Depression affects approximately 15 million adults in America in any given year. Depression often stems from an event or circumstance, which negatively impacts the way a person thinks or feels. It often leads to both emotional and physical problems that can impact a person’s ability to perform routine tasks at home and work.

It’s important to recognize that depression is not simply grief or sadness. If you have experienced the death of a loved one, the loss of a job, significant changes in health or wellness, or other life transitions, you may still benefit from speaking with a counselor. These experiences occur as part of our normal daily lives. Feelings of grief and sadness often come and go, the intensity of which generally diminishes over time. However, if you have experienced depressed mood and feelings of despair for more than two weeks, don’t wait another day – contact a supportive and encouraging depression counselor today.

Symptoms of Depression

While the source of depression is varied, there are many common symptoms. Some of these symptoms include:

  • Loss of energy
  • Fatigue
  • Prolonged sadness
  • Withdrawal from social activities
  • Changes in mood/irritability
  • Loss of interest in routine tasks
  • Difficulty remaining focused
  • Changes in sleep patterns
  • Feelings of worthlessness
  • Increased thoughts of death or suicide
  • Loss of appetite/increased appetite

If you’re suffering from one or more of these symptoms, you may be dealing with depression. There’s never been a better time to begin your journey of healing. You can get help for depression. A caring and supportive depression therapist in Greenville is ready to help you.

Kathleen Horn was so understanding and non-judgmental. She was really nice to work with and had a way of making me look at and think about things differently. She worked with me on coping skills and changing my thoughts so I could change behaviors and feel better. She helped me through a tough time and now I feel a lot less depressed and anxious. I would go to her again. Thank you for all of your help!

LaKimberly Dowdell was an excellent counselor. She was a great listener, while at the same time knowing precisely the right moment to provide her expert knowledge. She is very personable and caring, yet knows what to say to support the change you are seeking. I highly recommend her.

The only reason why my Family stopped going to see Ms. Dowdell is because I had to change jobs and at the time my schedule would not allow us to continue services. She made sure my Family had a great transition to another Provider and that we had continuity of care. Now that my schedule has a little more flexibility, I am very thankful to be able to continue services with Ms. Dowdell who still remembers my Family’s history like we were just in her office yesterday (over 1 year ago)! She listens intently and never puts you down, and helps you understand your emotions and what issues and problems you may be going through in a way that you can understand but clearly. Personally, I deal with a lot of stress and being pulled in a lot of directions, and would when I felt as though my words did not make sense coming out of my mouth, she would know how to piece together what I was saying and not make me feel bad for being too vulnerable and made my therapy sessions a safe space to learn and grow from them. I am forever grateful for how she is helping my Family accept what we need to accept, change what we need to change, and heal from the root of our wounds; wounds I did not know were there. I highly recommend her.

Emily was the first therapist I had ever gone to after thinking for a long time it would be good for me. I was stuck in a rut and repeating patterns and using coping skills that were no longer helpful to me. She helped me work through many of my personal issues, some which had been stewing since childhood. She always knew when to push and when to back off if a certain issue was too sensitive at that time. She is honest yet kind. I was sad to see her move out of Chicago but I will forever be grateful for the tools she helped me to develop for dealing with the sh**show that life can be sometimes. She helped me get back into alignment with who I really am as a person. I would highly recommend her for anyone who is struggling or even just looking for a little more balance in their lives.

Emily has been an amazing help in my life for the past couple of years. She helped me see my worth when I couldn't see it myself. She helped me with my grief after losing my father. She helped me overcome my addictions with drugs and alcohol. She taught me to be kind to myself and that everyday is not gonna be an amazing day and that's okay. She helped me accept that I don't have to know the outcomes to big life changes that it's best to go with the flow, wear life like a loose garment. Emily is such and amazing counselor and I am forever grateful for everything she helped me see. Emily cares tremendously and I know deep in my heart she is gonna continue being the sunshine in many more client lives. Emily has made a huge impact on my life and I don't think I will ever find a counselor as down to earth as she is. Chicago misses you already!!! :) :) :)
