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 Paramus, NJ 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 Paramus, NJ 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 a battle that many Americans fight every day. There’s nothing wrong with admitting that you may share the same fight with so many others—and often the first step is to reach out for assistance. 

It’s important to seek help from a mental health professional to help support you in your journey, and for many people with depressive symptoms, depression counseling is the answer. 

At Thriveworks Paramus, NJ we offer depression counseling, both online and in-person. We encourage you to consider whether talking with a depression therapist could help you improve your mental health and well-being. 

What Is Depression Counseling?

Depression counseling is a specialized set of therapeutic approaches that seeks to minimize and help manage the short- and long-term effects of depressive symptoms and disorders. 

Though depression is somewhat common, it affects each person differently. Some people feel depressed from time to time, going back and forth between emotional highs and lows, while others struggle with a persistent depressive disorder that never seems to go away.

Here are some of the most common symptoms that depression therapy can assist in treating:

  • A loss of interest in the things you have always loved
  • An inability to take part in your normal routine
  • Trouble sleeping or getting up in the morning
  • Extreme mood changes
  • Changes in weight
  • Fatigue
  • A decrease in energy levels
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Difficulty focusing
  • A loss of self-esteem

If any of these apply to you, whether they are minor feelings or they are issues that are slowly taking control over your life, seeing a mental health professional at Thriveworks in Paramus, NJ could help you bring stability and fulfillment back to your life.

How Does Depression Therapy Work?

The treatment of depression at Thriveworks in Paramus, New Jersey involves a multi-faceted approach that is geared to meet your needs. Counseling sessions with a mental health professional will help you to examine possible triggers for your depression. 

For example, you may learn cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) strategies you can use to give yourself an emotional boost, like embracing a healthy lifestyle and learning how to better connect with those around you. Medication may also be important in successfully treating your depression, but it’s not a “magic fix”—and often works best with therapy, too. 

The most important thing you need to remember is there is no shame in having a mental illness. You wouldn’t feel guilty or self-conscious over catching the flu or battling cancer, so you shouldn’t feel embarrassed to seek help for your symptoms of depression, either.

“Couples Counseling” for Depression

Counseling is available to help you deal with any lingering issues that may be affecting your mental health. There are countless challenges in life that will be beyond your control. The key is to learn to accept what is out of your hands, figure out what you can change, and open the door to a happier, more fulfilling life.

Depression counseling is all about finding the customized strategies that will be the most effective for you, which can include highly convenient online counseling options, as well.

So far it's OK. I say ok because there is a big age difference between the therapist and myself. Maybe by 25yrs or so.
