When anxiety and depression make daily life more difficult, it may be time to reach out for help. The professionals at Thriveworks Counseling in Indianapolis have helped many people who are suffering with anxiety and/or depression. You are not alone. Reach out today for support.

Anxiety and Depression: What Are They?

As many as one in four adults will be diagnosed with anxiety in their lifetimes in the United States, and as many as one in six will be diagnosed with depression. While they are distinct and separate illnesses, they often accompany one another.

Anxiety Presentation

The DSM-5 defines Generalized Anxiety Disorder DSM-5 300.02 (F41.1) as follows:

  • Experiencing acute anxiety and worry on more days than not and for a minimum of six months.
  • Experiencing complications with being able to manage anxiety and worry—an inability to control them.

Common symptoms include:

  • Fatigue
  • Sleep disturbances (insomnia or hypersomnia)
  • Restlessness
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Irritability
  • Difficulty staying on task
  • Muscle tension
  • The fallout from these symptoms will impair people’s ability to function socially and professionally.
  • Another substance or medication or medical condition cannot cause these symptoms in order for generalized anxiety to be diagnosed.

Depression Presentation

When therapists diagnose Major Depressive Disorder, they must work closely with each client. Many of the symptoms for depression are gauged in relationship to what people normally feel, and clinicians rely upon their clients to describe their experiences and inform the processes.

When diagnosing depression, trust between the patient and the therapist is of utmost importance as these symptoms must be explored with great care and sensitivity. Common symptoms of depression include:

  • Difficult and acute feelings such as sadness, worthlessness, guilt, hopelessness, self-hatred, emptiness, or despair.
  • Lost interested in everyday life—in particular, formerly enjoyable activities are no longer fun.
  • Fluctuations in weight and appetite (gain or loss).
  • Different sleep patterns (e.g., insomnia or hypersomnia).
  • Diminished activity levels.
  • Lethargy.
  • The loss of concentration or the ability to think clearly.
  • Suicide idealization or thoughts about dying.

Counseling for Depression and Anxiety at Thriveworks Counseling in Indianapolis, IN

The staff at Thriveworks Counseling in Indianapolis offers holistic care and multi-faceted treatment to our anxiety and depression clients. Often, the best care involves multiple approaches. One treatment may be medication— serotonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRI) or selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI). Medication may allow clients to experience relief from their symptoms so they can heal.

Another approach to treatment may be a talk-based therapy such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). Such therapies may equip clients with healthy coping mechanisms and unearth the root cause of the illness so that deep healing can be applied.
