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?

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.

Each type of depression requires a different clinical playbook. Fortunately, depression counselors at Thriveworks in Minneapolis, MN, can apply their extensive knowledge to whatever symptoms you’re experiencing, offering you expert care through depression counseling. 

How Does Depression Counseling Work?

Depression therapy can help you understand how your mood influences the overall way you see and interact with the world. A therapist can work with you to help find practical ways of managing—and ultimately conquering—those overwhelming feelings of sadness, insecurity, or helplessness.

Depression counseling can assist you if you’re seeing changes to your: 

  • Sleeping habits, including if you’re sleeping too much or having insomnia
  • Libido, such as losing your sex drive
  • Eating habits, like eating too much or too little
  • Finances, including spending too much as a form of “retail therapy”
  • Employment—it’s not uncommon to lose a job when you’re too depressed to work
  • Physical health, as depression can cause physical symptoms like headaches and digestion issues

You don’t have to continually endure the pain of depression when there may be a positive solution that depression counseling can provide. For instance, a Thriveworks depression counselor in Minneapolis, MN, can evaluate your symptoms and determine what counseling approach will work best for your needs. 

This might involve cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT),  (interpersonal therapy), or another counseling method. An accurate diagnosis is important because it will determine what treatment plans will help you begin your recovery journey through depression therapy.
