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 Modesto, CA 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 Modesto, CA 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.

Need more help deciding?

Psychologists define clinical depression not as a specific symptom, but as a cluster of them. One of those symptoms must be an enduring depressed mood. If you have been enduring a persistent feeling of sadness plus four or more of the following symptoms, a mental health provider may diagnose you with depression:

  • Significant, unintentional weight loss or gain
  • A reduction of physical movement and a slowing down of thought
  • Fatigue or energy loss
  • Reduced ability to concentrate or indecisiveness
  • Feelings of worthlessness
  • Frequent thoughts of death and/or suicidal ideation (Note: please contact a crisis center immediately if you are experiencing this symptom.)

Depression counseling at Thriveworks in Modesto, CA can help you address these symptoms and help you regain your momentum. Our depression counselors use a wide variety of treatments and techniques to help break through your mood disorder and even help prevent depressive episodes from occurring in the future. If you’re struggling with symptoms of depression, reach out to Thriveworks Modesto, CA for help.

Online Treatment for Depression

  • Psychotherapy
