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 Lafayette, IN 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 Lafayette, IN 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?

Struggling with depression can make people feel like they are alone and isolated in the world. They may misunderstand the illness, thinking they are simply feeling sad and should just try to “get over it.” However, depression can be a complicated and debilitating illness, drastically impacting the way people function and taking away enjoyment from the things they once loved.

Worse still, it can come without warning, even if you feel your life is otherwise going well. It can be hard to live your life normally when the weight of depression is dragging you down.

Fortunately, depression is treatable and is something you don’t have to face alone. Millions of people have sought depression counseling to alleviate their symptoms and regain control of their lives. Though it can be difficult to acknowledge the need for professional help, depression therapy can be the greatest gift you ever give yourself.

At Thriveworks in Lafayette, IN, our team of mental health experts can help you face anxiety, depression, and many other mental illnesses. We look forward to helping you live the life you want.

What Are Common Depression Symptoms?

Though depression can cause numerous symptoms, it might look different from person to person. Additionally, the length of a depressive episode can vary greatly though it is defined as a period of at least two weeks.

Even during an episode, symptoms may be inconsistent depending on internal and external factors. Some people even experience drastic swings between highs and lows.

Treating depression can be an ongoing process. Many battle chronic depression throughout their lives, seeking treatment during difficult periods. While the number and severity of these symptoms may vary, the following are some of the most common signs of depression:

  • Persistent low mood
  • Loss of interest in activities you once enjoyed
  • Low energy or increased fatigue
  • Trouble concentrating or making decisions
  • Difficulty in carrying out a normal routine
  • Changes in appetite
  • Thoughts of self-harm or suicide
  • Decreased self-esteem
  • Substance abuse

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, even if they are minor, it may be worth speaking with a mental health professional about whether therapy would be the right course for you. You don’t have to feel like there is any shame in seeking help to get your life back on track. Depression symptoms can be just as debilitating as a physical illness and a therapist can provide insight that can be difficult to find on your own.

Thriveworks Counseling in Lafayette, IN can provide stability and help you work through your depression.

How Can Depression Therapy Help?

Depression may be difficult to live with but it can be treated through medication, therapy, or a combination of both. In the case of therapy, speaking with a professional can help somebody living with depression to address any issues that may be contributing to their mental health.

Depression therapy centers around exploring the causes of depression, from family history to factors in early life that may affect your mental health. Often, treating depression involves discovering lingering issues in a person’s life and focusing on helping the client control the factors they can while learning to accept those they cannot.

At Thriveworks in Lafayette, IN, we use a variety of approaches to treat depression. The challenges you face are unique to you and we want to work with you to find a method that suits your needs and lifestyle. Counseling sessions allow a mental health professional to learn about your background and pinpoint causes and actionable steps to go with them.

For instance, a therapist might recommend cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to manage the patterns of thought that lead to depression, teaching a client to recognize these thoughts and process or adjust them in a healthy manner. The goal of therapy is not simply to find the quickest solution, but rather to formulate strategies that will lead to a more stable and fulfilling life in the long term.
