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 Providence, RI 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 Providence, RI 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.

Depression Symptoms: How Can I Tell If I’m Depressed?

We started to list symptoms of depression above, but let’s go through a more detailed list. Common signs or symptoms of depression include:

  • Despair: The main characteristic of depression is the persistent sadness we mentioned earlier.
  • Loss of interest: The second primary characteristic of depression is a loss or lack of interest in one’s day to day, even activities they used to look forward to.
  • Feelings of hopelessness: The individual feels hopeless about life and as if their life doesn’t matter or doesn’t have meaning.
  • Social isolation or withdrawal from others: Many people with depression also withdraw from their friends and family members.
  • Changes in sleeping or eating habits: Depression symptoms aren’t always mental or emotional symptoms. They can be physical too, like changes in sleeping or eating habits.
  • Other symptoms like weight gain, fatigue, irritability, anxiety, restlessness, and agitation.

Do any of the symptoms above sound all-too familiar? Are you feeling depressed, uninterested, and hopeless? Are you isolating yourself from other people and displaying changes in sleeping or eating patterns? Are you feeling irritable and anxious?

Types of Depression: Which Might I Have?

We started to explain earlier that there are different types of depression and proceeded to list a few. Let’s take a more in depth look at some of these depressive disorders:

  1. Major depression: Major depression is one of the more common types of depression. To be diagnosed, you must experience a depressed mood, a loss of interest, and a handful of other symptoms (such as those on the list above), every day for two weeks or longer. 
  2. Minor depression: Minor depression is much like major depression, only it is less severe (as you can probably infer from its name).
  3. Postpartum depression: Postpartum depression is experienced after childbirth. The individual experiences symptoms on the list above and also difficulty bonding with baby. 
  4. Persistent depressive disorder: Persistent depressive disorder is a longer form of depression with a low mood lasting for at least two years along with other harmful depression symptoms.

Vivian provides a welcoming conversational space for exchange. She is able to listen with genuine care and when the time is right give feedback that is both empathetic and constructive. If I have to share a problem with her that might be difficult to share with even a close friend, I feel she is able to help coach me along with a patient reassurance that my thoughts and feelings will be considered without judgment. There may not always be a direct or immediate answer to what I’m working through but she is able to encourage healthy thought-habits and emotional strategies which help me to progress. I really appreciate her respectful frame of mind and down-to-earth personality, they make talking with her worthwhile.
