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 Pasadena, TX 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 Pasadena, TX 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.

Am I Depressed? What Are the Symptoms of Depression?

Common signs that might indicate that you’re depressed, include: 

  • Overeating or avoiding eating
  • Feeling chronically fatigued 
  • A noted lack of interest in sex, hobbies, or relationships
  • Feeling distant from loved ones and friends 
  • Decreased work performance
  • Lack of self-care (i.e. personal hygiene or a clean living environment)
  • Abuse of drugs and alcohol to cope with emotional pain  

When you sit down to talk to a mental health professional at Thriveworks in Pasadena, TX you’ll have the opportunity to explain how you’re feeling. Your provider will listen to you, and then use your feedback to help you better understand and manage your depression. 

What Are My Treatment Options for Depression?

At Thriveworks in Pasadena, TX your treatment method will depend on the intensity and type of your depression. For more severe or persistent cases of depression, talking with a psychiatric NP is often the best method.  For others with more manageable depression symptoms, establishing a therapy-based relationship with a counselor can be highly beneficial. 

Depression, as we commonly think of it, actually refers to a cluster of closely related emotional disorders, including: 

  • Major depressive disorder: This condition captures the popular perception of depression. Those with major depression experience emotional detachment and hopelessness. These factors usually take away from their work, relationships, and hobbies. 
  • Postpartum depression: Postpartum depression is a mood disorder that arises after a woman gives birth. Women who undergo caesarian sections or experience a miscarriage are even more likely to experience this type of depression.
  • Minor depression: As the name suggests, minor depression is related to major depression—it’s typically severe in its effect and duration. Still, those with this condition will often seem distant, withdrawn, or overwhelmed with sadness. Minor depression can be harder to detect. 
  • Bipolar disorder: This mental health condition can alter someone’s emotions wildly, ranging from elation in one moment to overwhelming despair in the next. Those with bipolar disorder might find it hard to maintain close relationships or jobs due to their unpredictable mood swings.

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.
