Am I Depressed? What Are the Signs and Symptoms?

If you’re reading this, it’s likely that you think you might be dealing with depression. But let’s go over some basics, like signs and symptoms of depression. First, it’s important to know that there are different kinds of depression (which warrant different treatment plans). Among these depression types are major depression, minor depression, postpartum depression, seasonal affective disorder, bipolar disorder, and others. These vary in presentation, but there are some common symptoms of depression, including:

  • Feelings of intense sadness or despair
  • Loss of interest in daily activities (even once beloved activities)
  • Major changes in appetite or weight
  • Worthlessness or guilt
  • Loss of energy
  • Changes in sleep (i.e., insomnia)
  • Trouble focusing
  • Suicidal thoughts or ideation

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms of depression, consider meeting with a depression counselor. They can assess your symptoms and help you understand how you’re feeling. Furthermore, they can help you determine what you need and want out of counseling. They’ll then work with you to design a treatment plan that will best benefit you.

How Can Depression Counseling Help Me?

We’ve already touched on how a depression counselor can help you understand and then manage your depression symptoms—but let’s discuss this further, so you better understand the process. Your journey in counseling will depend on the symptoms you experience, the severity of those symptoms, the cause of your depression, and the exact goals you have for your time in counseling. Therefore, you can expect to discuss all of the above with your counselor in your initial sessions. You can also expect to talk about negative thoughts, of which often play a role in the development or at least the continuation of depressive feelings. Your counselor will help you understand what thoughts are problematic and why, as well as what thoughts will prove more beneficial.

Additionally, your depression counselor will likely discuss the importance of self-care with you. They’ll gage your commitment to practicing self-care and then help you prioritize it accordingly. This will involve finding some activities that you enjoy practicing and that prove beneficial, such as:

  • Exercising
  • Journaling
  • Meditating
  • Practicing yoga
  • Going to the gym
  • Spending more time outside
  • Making plans with loved ones

All of these practices can prove valuable. It all depends on what your current priorities are and where you are lacking fulfillment in your life. Don’t worry—you don’t have to figure this out on your own. Your counselor will offer assistance and help you create a self-care plan you’ll enjoy.

THRIVE ALIVE is working on a project and it’s “ME” and she also has my “FFL” as a patient too. Let’s just say she is a little Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey wrapped in to one! I’m not telling you her name because I don’t want her to get booked and deprive me of my scheduled appointments. I’m just saying this woman is a “MIRACLE WORKER!” I got this CM!

After working with Zack for a year I would say that he is very dependable and does show concern for his patients. There is never any problem with following hospital policy. Always a good man to have on your team.

Zack Is the BEST

I’ve known Zack, both professionally and personally, for the last 3 and a half years. He is a great person, and you won’t find anyone more dedicated to what they do. He truly cares about his patients and their outcomes, and he puts 110% of himself into his work to make sure they have the best outcomes possible. I consider myself lucky to have gotten the opportunity to work with him, and I know he will do great things now with Thriveworks.

I have known Dr. Caren Moore both personally and professionally for about 3 years. As a professional she sets the bar for those in her field and I've always been in awe of the level of care she provides to her patients.

Curtiss came and worked with several teenagers from our area and the response they gave me was excellent. He was energetic and spoke about topics on mental health that they needed to hear in a fun, friendly environment. Very grateful he came and helped us out.
