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 Helotes, 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 Helotes, 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?

Adrienne used to live by the motto, “If life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” When problems came her way, she took them in stride. She looked for solutions and reminded herself that her troubles wouldn’t last forever.

But in recent months, something has changed and Adrienne can’t roll with the punches anymore. It’s getting harder and harder to pick herself up. Her problems seem much bigger than they used to and they are keeping her from living her life to the fullest.

Lately, Adrienne hasn’t felt the same enthusiasm for the activities and hobbies she used to enjoy. She’s stopped going out with her friends and has even called in sick to work more times than she would care to admit. She realizes that it’s time for a change and decides to seek out professional counseling.

If you can relate to Adrienne, you may be one of the millions who suffer from depressive disorders every single year. The licensed therapists and counselors at Thriveworks in Helotes, TX are here to provide the resources you need to alleviate your symptoms and get your life back on track. When you’re ready to lift the weight of mental illness off your shoulders, the mental health professionals on our team are here to help.

Common Signs and Symptoms of Depression

There are many types of depressive disorders and each form of depression can elicit different symptoms. That said, there are several common signs and symptoms to look out for, including:

  • Persistent hopelessness
  • Sadness that doesn’t go away
  • Unexplained mood changes
  • Increased anxiety
  • Restlessness
  • Lack of interest in favorite hobbies or pastimes
  • Trouble sleeping or sleeping too much
  • Feelings of worthlessness
  • Low self-esteem
  • Fatigue
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Substance abuse
  • Self-harm or self-destructive behaviors

You may not experience every symptom on this list. One symptom is enough to indicate you may be dealing with a mood disorder. A licensed professional can give you the keys to reduce your symptoms and overcome your depression.

When you’re ready to overcome those dark thoughts and persistent symptoms, we’re here at Thriveworks in Helotes, TX to help you take the first step.

Can Depression Therapy Work for Me?

You may have doubts about the effectiveness of depression counseling. Maybe you’ve tried yoga, meditation, soothing music, and exercise. Perhaps you’ve talked to people who care about you. Nothing has made a difference. How is talking to a stranger going to fix your problems?

The answer lies in the very nature of depression: It is a medical illness. If you were suffering from a toothache and you tried several at-home remedies and nothing worked, wouldn’t you go see a dentist? If you were having chest pains, wouldn’t you go see a physician?

Although society has a tendency to downplay mental disorders, they can be just as serious as physical health issues. At Thriveworks in Helotes, TX our licensed mental health professionals are trained to diagnose, treat, and prevent depressive disorders. They have worked with countless other people in your shoes to help them overcome their cycles of negative thoughts in the short term and bring stability back into their lives in the long term.

When you meet with one of our licensed therapists or counselors, they’ll customize a treatment plan based on your symptoms and concerns. That may include some form of talk therapy, medication, or a combination of treatment options.

Some of the most common talk therapy approaches include:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
  • Interpersonal therapy
  • Psychotherapy

You and your therapist may decide to stick with individual therapy for now or to include other members of your family (in couples therapy or family therapy), if applicable. The experts at Thriveworks in Helotes, TX will help you find the right form of treatment to fit your situation. When you’re ready to get started, contact us to schedule an appointment.
