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 Katy, 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 Katy, 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?

Dealing with depression on your own can feel deeply isolating, but the truth is that you’re not alone. Depression is prevalent among people of all ages, backgrounds and ethnicities. In fact, millions of adults in the United States experience symptoms of depression throughout their lifetime.

Depression is such a relatable experience that it’s no wonder it features prominently in music, movies, and other forms of entertainment. Take the popular television show, “Mr. Robot,” for example. The show’s main character suffers from mental illness and depression as he navigates through his career and life.

Chances are you can relate to this character as you struggle with your own work and family life. Recognizing this is a great first step to getting help.

Sometimes the deep sadness and unhappiness inherent in depression originates from a difficult life experience, such as the death of a loved one or a breakup. Just as commonly, depression can come on slowly and randomly, without an identifiable triggering event.

In either case, depression can impact the way you think and feel. It can reduce your motivation to engage in activities that you once found pleasurable. The emotional toll from depression can make it very difficult to function normally on a daily basis.

Thriveworks Counseling makes it easy to get the help you need. Our office in Katy, TX has been designed and staffed to make your healing journey as comfortable and convenient as possible. Our licensed therapists can help you get control of your life again.

What are Common Depression Symptoms?

Depression can affect everyone differently. Some people might experience mild symptoms while others suffer from more severe feelings of depression. If you’re feeling like your depressive moments last for more than two weeks at a time, it might be a good idea to seek the help of a mental health professional for support and guidance.

Common causes of or contributors to depression include genetics, biology, health conditions, grief, trauma, stressful life events, substances, sudden life changes, and side effects of some medications.

Symptoms of depression include:

  • Feeling guilty
  • Feeling worthless
  • Loss of interest in things that you enjoyed in the past
  • Difficulty falling or remaining asleep
  • Intense fatigue
  • Lack of energy
  • Indecisiveness and an inability to make choices or important decisions
  • Difficulty focusing and concentrating on work and other tasks
  • Thoughts of suicide or self-harm

If one or more of the above apply to you, consider starting your healing journey with one of our licensed counselors in Katy, TX.

Can Therapy Help Me?

Since depression can affect people differently, counseling must take different forms as well. For that reason, our therapists are trained to learn the specifics of your situation before customizing your treatment plan or prescribing medication.

There’s a lot to gain from working with a therapist, including:

  • Identifying the reasons for your depression
  • Learning coping skills to deal with negative thoughts
  • Discovering how your thoughts can impact feelings and behaviors
  • Learning how to establish healthier relationships
  • Reducing the likelihood of future depression symptoms
  • Setting realistic and attainable life goals that align with your values

Are you struggling with feelings of depression? Recognizing you aren’t quite feeling yourself is the first step to getting better. For many people, therapy is the next big step on the healing journey.
