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 Leominster, MA 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 Leominster, MA 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?

Do you feel sad and hopeless on a regular basis? Are you struggling to get out of bed and make it into work each day? Do you feel uninterested in or disconnected from the people and the things you’ve always loved the most? If you’ve answered yes, you’re exhibiting symptoms of depression. This can be scary and confusing to hear, but know that you aren’t alone. In fact, you are far from it. There are approximately 16 million people in the US and 350 million individuals all across the globe who feel this way too.

“Through my own struggles with depression, I discovered that knowledge, therapy, medication, and education can provide the strength to get through it in one piece.” –Susan Polis Schutz

Depression is one of the most common mental illnesses out there. There are many factors that can contribute to an individual’s feeling depressed, from problems at work to breakups, major life changes, and lack of personal fulfillment.

What Are Depression Symptoms? Do I Have Depression?

We mentioned a few symptoms of depression above, but let’s understand the full picture. According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5), one must present at least five of the following in the same two-week period to receive a depression diagnosis:

  • Depressed mood, most or all of the time (as demonstrated by sadness, hopelessness)
  • Lack of interest or pleasure in day to day activities
  • Significant changes in weight and/or appetite
  • Sleep disturbances, like insomnia or hypersomnia
  • Fatigue; loss of energy
  • Feelings of worthlessness or unimportance
  • Irritability
  • Lack of concentration
  • Suicidal thoughts

I was in great need of an in-person therapist. I've grown tired of being stuck in the zoom room for years now, like many people. Thankfully, I was able to schedule an appointment and get started at the local Thriveworks office. And I'm grateful for my therapist. I feel like I'm making great strides forward in a fraction of the time it took me to make similar progress with online therapy/counseling. Setting matters.
