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 Novi, MI 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 Novi, MI 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?

The bipolar “wellness warrior” Victoria Maxwell once stated, “Never underestimate a person’s potential for recovery.” Humans are incredibly resilient. Our brains can bounce back from the damage inflicted by trauma, stress, and even depression. But it takes work. In order to recover from adversity, you often need to face the problem and retrain your brain in a more positive direction. Sometimes this requires intensive therapy. Sometimes this requires learning holistic treatments like mindfulness and meditation. And sometimes this requires psychotropic medication that will give your neurochemistry a boost. But whatever it takes, recovery is possible. You can achieve your goals, no matter how distant they seem when you’re in the thick of depression. The bleakness can lift with professional support.

Depression counselors at Thriveworks in Novi, MI are fully licensed, compassionate experts who are ready to help you feel better. Depression counseling uses a variety of therapeutic approaches to tackle the origins of depression and the cognitive and emotional machinery that prolongs depressed feelings. With premium therapy, Thriveworks clients can finally see the other side of depression.

How Do You Know If You’re Depressed?

People who are struggling with depression usually share a few characteristics in common. The following criteria define depression in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), which is used by psychiatrists to diagnose mental health conditions:

  1. Negative thoughts and a depressed mood lasting longer than two weeks 
  2. Loss of interest or pleasure in activities you usually enjoy (anhedonia)
  3. Unintentional weight loss or gain driven by appetite changes
  4. Psychomotor retardation (slowed-down movements and thoughts)
  5. Fatigue and/or exhaustion
  6. Feelings of guilt or worthlessness
  7. Issues with attention or memory
  8. Suicidality (If you’re ever considering harming yourself, call a crisis hotline immediately.)

People can also present with more atypical symptoms of depression like irritability, insomnia, or muscle aches and pains. Mental health counselors at Thriveworks in Novi, MI are trained to look for physical and emotional symptoms of depression. 

How Can Counseling Help Depression?

Counseling can help depression and other mood disorders with evidence-based treatment solutions like the following:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which seeks to modify maladaptive thought patterns and beliefs in order to improve psychological and behavioral health. CBT and counseling are usually first-line treatment approaches. 
  • Dialectical behavior therapy, which is a type of CBT that helps regulate emotions
  • Supportive therapy, which enables a person to use their own resources to improve general functioning
  • Psychodynamic therapy, which uses self-reflection and self-examination to bring awareness to the origins of distress
  • Holistic remedies like meditation, progressive muscle relaxation, and mindfulness
  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), which can help restore balance and self-esteem
  • Substance abuse counseling, which can help people recover from habits that may worsen depression
  • Lifestyle changes that might involve exercise and nutrition
  • Family therapy or couples therapy, which includes loved ones in depression recovery 
  • Behavioral activation, which focuses on a person’s behavior and environment
  • Prescription pharmaceuticals like antidepressant medications, which can be used in the short-term or long-term to support recovery. Psychiatrists at Thriveworks in Novi, MI can prescribe these medications as-needed.

What Are the Different Kinds of Depression?

Depression comes in different forms, and they may require different treatment protocols. Types of depressive disorder include the following:

  • Major depression
  • Manic depression (bipolar depression)
  • Postpartum depression or postnatal depression (PPD)
  • Persistent depressive disorder (dysthymia)
  • Seasonal affective disorder (SAD)
  • Mixed depression with anxiety disorder
  • Situational depression
  • Psychotic depression
  • Premenstrual dysphoric disorder

The highly qualified mental health providers at Thriveworks in Novi, MI can assess clients for these specific types of depression.
