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 Missouri City, 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 Missouri City, 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 attend depression therapy sessions?

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.

The Most Common Forms of Depression

Depression comes in many different forms with many different symptoms. It can occur seasonally or chronically and can be impacted by everything from genetics to your environment.

Some of the more common types of depression include the following:

  • Major depressive disorder may be caused by genetics, hormones, stress, or childhood experiences. Its symptoms include lethargy, disinterest, tiredness, sadness, and suicidal thoughts.
  • Persistent depressive disorder has the same causes as major depressive disorder but it lasts for two or more years. It can be accompanied by feelings of fatigue, helplessness, and irritability.
  • Seasonal depressive disorder is caused by changes in the season and typically occurs during the cold autumn and winter months due, at least in part, to the lack of sunlight. It may cause weight gain, tiredness, and intense feelings of sadness.
  • Bipolar disorder may have a number of contributing factors, including genetics, substance abuse, trauma, or extreme stress. This mood disorder can fall into many different categories, including bipolar I and bipolar II, depending on the frequency and intensity of your emotional highs and lows.
  • Postpartum depression is typically caused by changes in hormones, a history of depression, or extreme stress following childbirth. Common symptoms include mood swings, insomnia, and anxiety.
  • Premenstrual dysphoric disorder can occur due to an abnormal response to hormonal changes during menstruation. Its symptoms include hopelessness, extreme fatigue, and heart palpitations.

If depression symptoms are impacting your life, please schedule an appointment with us at Thriveworks in Sugar Land, TX.

A Multifaceted Approach To Treating Depression

Though the process varies for each individual, most treatment plans combine the following:

  • Therapy, such as dialectical behavior therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy.
  • Medication, such as antidepressants and mood stabilizers.
  • Self-care techniques, such as meditation, improved nutrition, and removing caffeine and other stimulants.

Your therapist, psychiatrist, counselor, or another mental health provider will speak to you one-on-one about the various treatments available and build a plan that works for you and your specific form of depression.
