Depression Counseling and Therapy in Mt. Pleasant, SC—Counselors and Therapists

Depression Counseling and Therapy in Mt. Pleasant, SC—Counselors and Therapists

Everyone struggles. We struggle with feelings of loneliness, to master the perfect work-life balance, to open up about our feelings. Sometimes, though, our struggle can turn into something bigger, darker, more oppressive. This is a different kind of struggle. This is depression.

Depression can make physically healthy people feel weak. It can make simple tasks feel impossible. It can cause you to miss work, school, or put major responsibilities on the back burner. It can cause you to question everything you know about life—as you deal with an intense sadness, loss of energy, and feelings of guilt or worthlessness.

The good news is depression is treatable, and there is help available. If you are struggling with depression or depressive symptoms, consider working with a depression counselor at Thriveworks Mt. Pleasant Counseling. The therapists at Thriveworks are experts in mental health. We have the skills and the tools to help you manage your depression and live a happy life again.

What are the Symptoms of Depression?

If you’re struggling with feelings of sadness or emptiness, it’s natural to wonder, “Am I depressed?” There are many forms of depression: major depression, minor depression, bipolar disorder, postpartum depression, seasonal affective disorder, and others. Symptoms of depression can include:

  • Intense sadness or despair
  • Feelings of guilt or worthlessness
  • Loss of interest in life
  • Major changes in appetite
  • Sleep issues like insomnia
  • Loss of energy
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Low self-esteem
  • Suicidal thoughts/ideation

If you have feelings of intense sadness most of the day or have a sustained loss of interest in life nearly every day for weeks at a time, you are likely to be diagnosed with depression. 

If any of the symptoms above resonate with you, call us at Thriveworks Mt. Pleasant Counseling. Our phone number is 843-606-6223. A depression counselor will talk you through your symptoms and help you to better manage them so you can get back to your normal self again.

How Can Depression Counseling Help Me?

Your treatment will depend on your depressive symptoms and your goals for therapy. Your counselor will customize your therapy sessions to best help you. As a general guide, you can expect to discuss problematic thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that contribute to your depression and that play a major role in your life. You can also expect to learn effective tools for defeating these negative thoughts and adopting healthier behaviors that improve your mindset and your well being.

Your therapist will also work with you on self-care, which is just as important as the work you complete in your therapy sessions. Self-care includes activities that you enjoy and that benefit your mental health. It might be exercise, yoga, a creative pursuit, meditation or even just spending time with friends or family members. The key is to find activities that you care about and enjoy. Your counselor can help you find a routine of self-care that works best for you.

Our counselors are equipped with the knowledge, experience, and tools to help you through this difficult time. And they are eager to make a difference in your life. If you’re ready to get started, so are we. You can usually get an appointment within 24 hours. Our therapists have flexible schedules so you can see us on evenings and weekends. Our counselors are also available by phone and email to help you between in-person sessions. We also accept most major insurance plans. 

We are conveniently located adjacent to the Queensborough Shopping Center at 1131 Queensborough Blvd., #100 in Mt. Pleasant. Call Thriveworks in Mt. Pleasant today at 843-606-6223 to schedule your first counseling session.

Finally found help for my PPD

★★★★★
I had a hard time finding help after the birth of my daughter. A friend told me about Thriveworks so I added them to my list of counselors to leave a message for. They answered, scheduled an appointment for the next day, and accepted my insurance. I've had three sessions already and just got a call back from one of the other people I called. Can't recommend them enough!!
