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 Loveland, CO 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 Loveland, CO 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?

Depression is one of the most common mental health disorders, affecting millions of people worldwide. Symptoms of depression are more than feeling “down,” and are more long-lasting and intense than situational grief. Depressive disorders can interfere with your life, controlling the way you feel, think, and behave.

Because depression is so common, many people fail to recognize how serious depressive disorders truly are. When left untreated, depression symptoms can get worse over time and lead to self-harm, substance abuse, and difficulty performing tasks like basic hygiene, getting out of bed, and caring for your household or family members.

Fortunately, even the most severe forms of depression can be managed with the help of a mental health professional. A therapist or counselor at Thriveworks Counseling in Loveland, CO, can help you understand your depressive disorder and give you the tools to cope with your symptoms and manage your condition. Call our office today to set up your first appointment.

Recognizing Signs and Symptoms of Depression

There are many forms of depression to consider. Some kinds of depression have specific causes that make them easier to identify, such as postpartum depression and situational depression. Other forms of depression, like major depressive disorder, have causes that are not fully understood, making their broad list of possible symptoms more difficult to pinpoint.

Depressive disorders can look very different from one person to the next. Your past experiences, emotional state, and personality can affect the way you experience depression. This is part of what makes depression such a difficult disorder to diagnose.

Though the symptoms of depression can vary greatly, some of the most common signs to look for include:

  • Persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, worthlessness, or guilt
  • Loss of interest or pleasure in activities or hobbies
  • Sleep disruption – sleeping too little or too much
  • Appetite and weight fluctuations
  • Anxiety or restlessness
  • Agitation, irritability, or angry outbursts
  • Trouble thinking, concentrating, or making decisions
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue or lethargy

Depression can manifest both physically and psychologically, which often leads to depressive disorders being left undiagnosed and untreated. If you or someone you love has experienced any of these symptoms for more than two weeks, consider speaking with one of the mental health professionals at Thriveworks in Loveland, CO, for support.

How Can Depression Therapy Help Me?

Treating depression is a highly personalized experience, based specifically on the issues and concerns you are facing. Your therapist or counselor will take your symptoms, personality, emotional state, and past experiences into consideration to develop a unique treatment plan to tackle your depression.

Treatment for depression generally includes at least one form of talk therapy, or a combination of multiple approaches like Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) or interpersonal therapy. Talk therapy helps you understand your depressive disorder and how it affects your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, giving you the tools you need to correct them.

Your therapist or counselor might also recommend therapeutic techniques, like controlled breathing or meditation, that can be used both during therapy sessions or at home to help you handle stress and negative emotions. Prescription medications can also be extremely helpful in managing depressive disorders, especially when combined with other therapeutic approaches.

Overall, depression therapy or counseling can help you overcome your depression by teaching you how to:

  • Identify and replace negative thoughts and behaviors
  • Adjust to life challenges or crisis
  • Developing positive interactions and relationships with others
  • Finding effective ways to problem solve
  • Use healthy behaviors to accept and tolerate stress and difficult emotions
  • Set and chive realistic goals
  • Gain an overall sense of satisfaction and control in your life

I am very happy to offer my highest recommendations for a therapist working with the community at Thriveworks. Here is an example of what it is like to be in Linda Armendariz’s care. We had a family session with Linda. She spoke with each of us beforehand, to have a clear understanding of what each person hoped to accomplish. She was a calming presence throughout our session, gently bringing us back to the issues we wanted to address and helping us hear what was being said. Our common goal was to really understand each other and to be heard. As parents we wanted to support our adult son without enabling him, showing high expectations with a lot of warmth. We were mostly struggling with boundaries, which was confusing to him. In the end we came to a very clear and actionable plan with goals and dates. We each had assignments that we could accomplish. It was agreed that we would work together, openly. We agreed to communicate as a group moving forward. Respect has been key. Linda models what she says. She is intuitive and to the point, so time is used wisely. I believe that anyone who gets to work with Linda will grow steadily!
