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 Nashville, TN 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 Nashville, TN 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?

Depression is characterized by this persistent despair that makes life unpleasant and unenjoyable. This despair is accompanied by feelings of hopelessness, low (or nonexistent) energy levels, withdrawal from loved ones, and other symptoms that have a negative impact on the individual’s wellbeing.

There are various types of depression, including the disorders that many are familiar with—like major and minor depression—as well as the disorders that many are not as familiar with—like postpartum depression and seasonal affective disorder. The presentation of symptoms varies from one depressive disorder to the next, however, each comes with unpleasant feelings and physical changes as well. 

Are you feeling depressed? For many people, answering this question is difficult. We don’t always realize when we’re struggling. Some of us assume that how we’re feeling is normal or that it will pass. But when it comes to depression, these feelings are not normal and they do not typically pass on their own. In order to heal these feelings, we have to take action and seek help. 

Thriveworks Counseling in Nashville, TN can provide you with help and treatment for depression. If you’ve developed depression symptoms, please reach out to our team so that we can assess these symptoms and design a treatment plan that will help you get back on your feet. 

Symptoms of Depression: How Do I Know If I’m Depressed?

As we’ve already touched on, depression is a harmful mental health condition that makes life unpleasant. Signs and symptoms can vary from one person to another, but there are common symptoms, which include:

  • Feelings of despair or a great sadness: This is the primary symptom of depression.
  • Loss (or lack) of interest in activities, relationships: This is another main symptom of depression. The individual is disinterested in things or people they used to love.
  • Hopelessness and other harsh feelings: Often, depressed individuals also experience feelings of hopelessness. 
  • Withdrawal from others: Another common and tough symptom of depression is isolating oneself from others. 
  • Sleep disturbances and harmful changes in eating habits: It is also common for people with depression to experience insomnia and other sleep disturbances, as well as harmful changes in eating habits.

There are additional symptoms that can come with depression, all of which can make many important areas of life really difficult. After reading this list, do you think that you might be depressed? Are you experiencing symptoms of depression? Are you unhappy, unmotivated, and uninterested?

If the answer is yes, and you live in the Nashville area, call Thriveworks in Nashville, TN. We have mental health professionals here who specialize in providing depression therapy and additional support for those who suffer with depression.

What Kind of Depression Do I Have?

You might be familiar with the “standard” depression, which can be sorted into mild, moderate, or severe depression. But there are technically many different types of depression, which include:

  • Major depression
  • Minor depression
  • Persistent depressive disorder
  • Seasonal affective disorder
  • Postpartum depression
  • Bipolar disorder

There are others that we could tag onto this list. The truth, though, is that you’ll have to talk to a mental health professional to understand which type of depression you might be experiencing. So, if you are suffering from any set of depression symptoms, please consider scheduling an appointment with a therapist, counselor, or psychologist at Thriveworks Counseling in Nashville, TN.
