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 Irving, 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 Irving, 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?

Are you having trouble getting out of bed in the morning? Have you lost interest in activities you used to enjoy? Do you feel like you are worthless and don’t see any hope for the future? These are all signs that you might be struggling with depression.

Depression is a common mental illness that millions of Americans contend with at some point in their lives. Feelings of depression can be triggered by major life events, such as the loss of a loved one or the end of a relationship. However, mental illnesses are complicated and can also arise without an obviously discernible reason. As a result, some people may not feel justified in their experience and think that they need to simply “get over” their feelings.

As you might imagine, depression can cause a lot of suffering for those who have it, regardless of its cause. That’s why it’s important to seek out depression counseling if symptoms are interfering with your life. While depression may be common, that doesn’t mean you have to let it stop you in your tracks.

You have the power to make your mental health a priority and bring happiness and fulfillment back into your life. If you’re interested in seeing what a difference depression counseling can make, reach out to the professional counselors at Thriveworks in Irving, TX.

How Do I Know If I’m Suffering From Depression?

There are many different forms of depression. For example, some women suffer from postpartum depression due to the various hormonal, psychological, and social changes that they experience after giving birth. Other people might experience seasonal affective disorder (SAD), which is more common in the winter months when there is less sunlight.

Just as the causes of depression can vary, so too can the symptoms. Some people may not think their depression is serious unless they are having suicidal thoughts or can’t bring themselves to get out of bed and go to work. In reality, this form of mental illness is complex and people can experience a wide range of symptoms.

Depression may manifest itself with general feelings of low self-worth and low energy over a long period of time or appear acutely in the form of more severe episodes. You may experience feelings of dissatisfaction, low self-esteem, or thoughts of self-harm. Or you may just feel a general sense of hopelessness and despair.

While depression can vary greatly among individuals, here are some of the most common symptoms:

  • Changes in sleeping patterns (oversleeping or insomnia)
  • Changes in eating patterns (overeating or loss of appetite)
  • Chronic fatigue or low energy
  • Lack of interest in favorite activities
  • Irritability
  • Substance abuse
  • Heightened anxiety
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Low self-esteem
  • Feelings of despair

If you’re experiencing depression symptoms, it may be time to seek out the help of a therapist at Thriveworks Counseling in Irving, TX.

Is Depression Therapy Right for Me?

If you’ve been suffering from depression, it’s easy to feel like there’s no hope. However, this is far from the truth. Coping with depression may not be easy at first, but it is a highly treatable illness with the guidance of an experienced counselor.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is one of the tools a professional counselor can use to help you overcome depression. Many clients are surprised by how much of an impact their thoughts have on their own mental health. CBT can help you identify negative thinking patterns, adjust those thoughts, and develop coping strategies that more effectively regulate your emotions and behaviors.

Depending on your situation, you may also be prescribed medication. Depressive disorders often call for a customized approach to treatment, so you can expect your therapist to help you find the treatment plan that works best for you.

Depression doesn’t have to prevent you from living your life the way you want. Speak to a licensed counselor today at Thriveworks Counseling in Irving, TX.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
