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 Philadelphia, PA 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 Philadelphia, PA 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 really liked Meaghan, she was very helpful at defusing when things got a bit hostile. She focused on the major issues and the small frustrating things happening between us. I wish we could come more often! I didn’t like the fact that we stressed to the receptionist that we needed later appointments due to Keith’s jobs but she told us that we had to come early just for this appointment and each one after that would be later. She scheduled us with a therapist who does have late appointments which makes no sense at all after stressing that we picked Their on the bases of having those late appointment options.

My therapist was prompt, courteous, kind, empathic, inquisitive, insightful, and helpful. For a first visit, I felt remarkably comfortable with her as compared to many other therapists I’ve met with before. I look forward to returning for my second visit and making progress.
