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 Louisville, KY 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 Louisville, KY 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?

Becca has been feeling off for quite a while. Despite her best efforts, her fatigue, sadness, and apathy seem to follow her from one day to the next, creating an endless spiral that leaves her overwhelmed. Many of the things that she once enjoyed feel distant, and she’s lost touch with many of the people she once relied on. 

These changes have hurt, and Becca knows that she’s been slow to do anything about the problem. But one of the main issues that she’s faced with is her inability to pinpoint what’s caused her mood to decline into what she thinks could be depression. Even though Becca has never talked to a mental health professional, she knows that having a provider’s guidance and support could help her along the road to recovery. 

Like Becca, many people experiencing the weight of depression aren’t sure where to turn. But at Thriveworks in Louisville, KY, our team of mental health professionals helps everyday people to overcome and manage their depression. If you’re interested in connecting with one of our therapists, counselors, or psychiatrists, give us a call today. 

Could I Be Depressed? What Does Depression Feel Like? 

Depression is a complex mental health condition, so the symptoms and signs can vary drastically from person to person. With this in mind, there are several common signs of depression to watch out for, including: 

  • Feeling chronically fatigued 
  • Overeating or avoiding eating 
  • Lack of self-care (i.e. personal hygiene or a clean living environment)
  • Abusing drugs or alcohol to cope with emotional pain 
  • A noted lack of interest in sex, hobbies, or relationships  
  • Feeling distant from loved ones and friends 
  • Decreased work performance

These are only a few of the many different ways that depression can manifest in your life. If you’re diagnosed by a provider at Thriveworks in Louisville, KY with depression, you may find that your experience and symptoms vary. That’s why it’s so important to speak candidly with one of our mental health professionals—doing so can help them to more accurately treat and recognize your emotional needs. 

Can Depression Therapy Help Me? 

For many people, attending depression therapy sessions can often be a great way to move forward while dealing with the symptoms of depression. At Thriveworks in Louisville, KY one of our counselors, therapists, or psychologists can help you to work through what’s causing your depression. Our providers will:

  • Use talk and behavioral therapy to implement coping strategies for you to use in your personal and professional life 
  • Work with you to better understand your depression 
  • Serve as a verbal and emotional outlet for the burdens of this mood disorder

The provider that you’re paired with will depend on the type and severity of your depression. For many people, talking with a counselor or therapist is an efficient form of treatment. But for others with more persistent or severe cases of depression, meeting with a psychiatrist, who can prescribe helpful medication, is a more effective way to manage their symptoms. 

Are There Different Types of Depression? 

There are many forms that depression can take, but some of the most common include: 

  • Postpartum depression: Postpartum depression affects women who’ve given birth; those who underwent caesarian sections or had a miscarriage are at higher risk. This disorder can onset immediately or months after childbirth. 
  • Bipolar disorder: Bipolar disorder can cause depression when the mood swings that it induces fluctuate. Those with bipolar disorder may feel extremely happy for a minute, and furious or dejected in the next.
  • Major depression: This disorder causes emotional detachment, sadness, hopelessness, and apathy. Those who suffer from major depression may become socially isolated, further exacerbating their condition. It’s what most people think of when they hear the word “depression”.
  • Minor depression: As the name implies, this is less severe than major depression but just as harmful. Because those with this disorder may go long periods without feeling depressed, identifying what’s triggering their sadness can be difficult for those with minor depression.
