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 Lubbock, 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 Lubbock, 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?

Shaun hasn’t seen his partner in the two weeks since he moved to a new city. Even though they talk on the phone and have plans to visit, he’s feeling unsettled. In the time since then, Shaun has had difficulty regulating strong feelings of sadness, apathy, and a burdening sense of hopelessness. 

After doing some thinking, Shaun has decided that talking with someone about the emotional weight he’s carrying could be useful. Besides, he knows that if he has depression, it might have a serious impact on his mental health. 

If you’re in a similar position and are concerned that you’re depressed, don’t hesitate to contact Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Lubbock, TX, where depression counseling can help you find relief. 

Do I Have Depression? What Does It Feel Like?

Depression manifests differently for everyone; if you’re diagnosed, you might find that your symptoms vary from someone else’s. That being said, there are several common signs that you might be experiencing depression, including:

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

When you talk with one of our mental health professionals in depression counseling sessions, you’ll be able to trust that your feedback will be appreciated and heard. Your personal experience and journey play a pivotal role in your treatment process—the more you share, the better your provider will be able to help you manage your mental health needs. 

Depression Therapy Methods: Psychologists vs. Psychiatric Providers

Psychologists, therapists, psychiatric providers, and other mental health professionals can help everyday people treat and manage their depression, but their treatment approaches are different. 

Psychologists and therapists help those with depression by: 

  • Creating a professional connection with their client to better understand their depression 
  • Serving as a verbal and emotional outlet for those burdened by this mood disorder
  • Using depression therapy methods such as talk and behavioral therapy to implement coping strategies for clients 

Psychiatric providers, on the other hand, are:

  • Medical professionals who are licensed to both prescribe medication and conduct depression therapy sessions 
  • Often a better option for those with more severe cases of depression

Therapy for Depression

For more moderate cases of depression that are more easily managed without medication, a therapist or counselor can help by: 

  • Treating mental health disorders and conditions using different forms of therapy, which often includes cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) or dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT)
  • Using sessions as a medium for progress. These sessions rely on a candid, professional relationship between themselves and the client. 
  • Using your personal experiences and needs to create custom treatment plans that include coping strategies and the formation of healthy boundaries.

Trust in the providers at Thriveworks Lubbock, TX for assistance in treating your depressive symptoms. With expert care and support from a team of experienced professionals, you can start to reclaim your quality of life with help from depression therapy. 

What Type of Depression Could I Have? 

Some of the most common conditions that can be treated with depression therapy at Thriveworks Lubbock, TX include:

  • 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.
  • Postpartum depression: Postpartum depression affects women who’ve given birth; those who underwent cesarean sections or had a miscarriage are at higher risk. This disorder can onset immediately or months after childbirth.
