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 Norwalk, CT 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 Norwalk, CT 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.

“I don’t feel sad. At least, that’s not how I’d describe it,” Mike tells his sister. “It’s more like an empty and hopeless feeling.” Mike has been struggling with depression for the last few months now. He kept it to himself for as long as he could, but his friends and family started to worry when he stopped reaching out. On top of this emptiness and hopelessness, Mike struggles to fall asleep at night and get out of bed in the mornings. He lacks motivation, fails to concentrate at work, and wants to just be alone. His sister expresses due concern: “Mike, I’m really worried about you. I want you to know that I’m here to help you however I can, but I think you might need some professional help.”

When we start to experience symptoms of a mental health condition or develop difficult feelings that we don’t quite know what to do with, our loved ones can prove helpful… to an extent. Sometimes, though, we need to reach out for professional help from a counselor, therapist, or psychologist. These mental health professionals have devoted time to develop the right skills, gain experience, and finish training, all of which allow them to help people just like you during painful or tough times.

“It is very hard to explain to people who have never known serious depression or anxiety the sheer continuous intensity of it. There is no off switch.” –Matt Haig

Depression Symptoms: What Are They? Am I Depressed?

One of the tricky things about depression, as well as many other mental health conditions, is that the symptoms can look different from person to person. For example, one individual might feel empty, hopeless, unmotivated; another might experience more physical symptoms like difficulty sleeping or changes in weight and appetite.

That said, there are common depression symptoms that you should know about. “The major signs and symptoms of depression include physical and psychological symptoms,” explains Lilliam Rodriquez, a Licensed Clinical Psychologist at our Norwalk office. “The physical symptoms can include poor sleep/over sleeping, poor appetite/increased appetite, little to no energy, feeling constantly tired, and having difficulties completing day to day tasks due to feeling exhausted. Psychological symptoms include feeling badly for yourself, feelings of hopelessness for the future, feeling like its you against the world, anhedonia (not being able to experience any pleasure), and feeling like your walking with a dark cloud over your head. You can experience some or many of these symptoms, among others.”

If you feel depressed and are experiencing depression symptoms, please consider reaching out for help from a mental health professional. It’s incredibly important that you work with a counselor or depression experts on our team who would be happy to assist you.

Can Depression Therapy Help Me? How?

Depression therapy has proven to help people with depression, in a few specific ways: “Depression counseling can greatly impact the duration and course of depression. Many times treatment can provide you with a better understanding of your depression, particular triggers, how it impacts you and your life specifically, identify what are your strengths, provide you with tools to manage your symptoms, and achieve recovery,” says Rodriquez. “Counseling can also equip you to identify early symptoms of depression, if you were to experience reoccurring episodes, before becoming consumed by depression’s symptoms and impact.”

In addition, the depression therapists and counselors at Thriveworks in Norwalk, CT can provide you with undying support on this difficult journey. If you choose to work with one of our experts, your counselor therapist will provide you with an individualized approach to treatment. This means that they will get to know you before they design your treatment plan to best ensure that you get the most out of counseling or therapy. This all goes back to our mission, which is to help people live happy, successful lives.
