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 , OH 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 , OH 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.

Need more help deciding?

Consider this: you have been feeling down recently and can’t seem to find the motivation to get out of bed most days. You have stopped eating enough food, you avoid answering the phone when your loved ones call, and you have started letting assignments slip at work. Your friends notice that you are spending less time with them and are starting to worry about your wellbeing. They recommend that you look into speaking with a depression therapist, so you do. After a few weeks, you start to feel more like yourself again. You smile more, enjoy eating out again, and make time to see the people you love.

Can you relate to how that feels? Do you wish that you could feel that relief wash over you?

It is so difficult to describe depression to someone who’s never been there, because it’s not sadness. I know sadness. Sadness is to cry and to feel. But it’s that cold absence of feeling – that really hollowed-out feeling.”

–J.K. Rowling

Depression can be really hard to overcome on your own. You might feel alone and like no one understands what you are feeling. Luckily, online depression therapists at Thriveworks Ohio have the training, skills, knowledge to help people through their depression. They have assisted and supported many people like you, and they are ready to help you on your journey, too. To get started, just give us a call.

What Are the Signs and Symptoms of Depression?

Depression can affect everyone differently and is more than just feelings of sadness and grief. It is a persistent, looming feeling, or the feeling of having a grey cloud always over your head. Some of the different symptoms you could experience while battling depression include:

  • Hopelessness
  • Anxiety
  • Feelings of worthlessness
  • Excessive crying
  • Feelings of hopelessness
  • Changes in sleeping habits (not getting enough sleep or sleeping too much)
  • Anger
  • Loss of interest in things and activities that once brought you joy
  • Changes in eating habits (eating too much or too little)
  • Changes in weight
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Thoughts of suicide or self-harm

When someone experiences depression, they can find it very hard to complete everyday activities like cleaning, bathing, or changing clothes. By not being able to perform these simple tasks, it can make the person suffering from depression feel even worse. It becomes a never-ending, vicious cycle.

The type of depression you are facing can also affect how you feel or act. Your counselor will be able to diagnose what form of depression you have and base their treatment plan off of their findings. The different types of depression include:

  1. Major Depressive Disorder
  2. Minor Depression
  3. Persistent Depressive Disorder
  4. Bipolar Disorder
  5. Postpartum Depression
  6. Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)

Working with a licensed depression therapist can help you sift through difficult emotions and learn how to manage your symptoms. Don’t wait any longer to get the assistance you need. Reach out today.

How Does Online Depression Therapy Work?

Depression therapy in-person versus online does not differ in any way other than meeting with your counselor virtually or in-office. There are two types of online therapy you can choose between, which are:

  1. Phone Call: speaking with a counselor over the phone
  2. Video Chat: speaking with your counselor via video chat on an electronic device

Some people prefer one over the other so do not hesitate to switch between the two until you find the method that feels best for you. Your therapist will still provide you the same dedicated, compassionate, and understanding care you are looking for, all from the comfort of your own home. We understand how hard it can be to even get out of bed, let alone get into a car and drive to an appointment. That’s why we offer our clients the ease and accessibility of online counseling.

Once you decide to work with an online depression therapist, they will help you move through depression and learn how to manage your symptoms. We want to help you get back to a happier, healthier state of being. Although it takes time, we know you will make meaningful progress to get you on that path.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
