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 Pueblo, CO 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 Pueblo, CO 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?

A lot of people think that depression is just feeling sad or unmotivated. Yes, these can be symptoms of depression, but there’s so much more to it. Depression comes with a deep despair and disinterest in activities that one used to love. It can also come with a lack of motivation, disconnection from society, withdrawal from loved ones, avoidance of responsibilities, and other harmful effects.

Dealing with depression by oneself can feel impossible. The thing is that you shouldn’t have to deal with depression by yourself. There are mental health professionals who specialize in helping people manage this illness, from the harmful symptoms that they are experiencing to the effects that it is having on their day to day life. These professionals also provide their clients with unending support and guidance, as they work to cope with their depression and manage or recover from it.

You’ll come out of your dark days stronger than you were before.

To schedule your depression therapy appointment, just call our office at (719) 838-6383. We know that you might feel hopeless or scared, but we are here to help you during this difficult time.

The Physiological and Physical Factors of Depression

When someone enters a bout of depression, they might think, “Why am I feeling like this? What’s happening to me? I have everything I could want in life, this doesn’t make any sense.” They might then hope that their feelings go away on their own. Unfortunately, though, in more cases than not, depression requires treatment. It doesn’t just go away on its own.

The good news, though, is that depression therapy is proven to help. More specifically, it can help the individual better understand why they might be feeling depressed and also manage the symptoms they are experiencing. Symptoms can change from one person to the next, but here is a list of common symptoms:

  • Feeling worthless and/or hopeless
  • General discontent or unhappiness
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Anger and irritability
  • Fluctuations in weight and appetite
  • Loss of interest in once loved activities
  • Withdrawal from loved ones
  • Loneliness; social isolation
  • Anxiety

Again, the symptoms of depression can vary widely. However, depression is characterized by the two big symptoms of despair and a loss of general interest in life or day to day activities. So, if you relate to the aforementioned symptoms, please consider reaching out to a professional.

Causes of Depression: Why Am I Depressed?

Unfortunately, there isn’t one easily identified cause of depression. Instead, there are many different factors that can contribute to the development and/or exacerbation of depression. For example, certain life experiences might trigger a bout of depression. Consider: a breakup, the loss of a loved one, or another particularly painful event. These can all contribute to depression. The good news is that when there is a recognizable cause or contributing factor, your therapist can use this information to inform your treatment plan and help you confront the cause.

Now, in instances in which the cause of your depression is not distinguishable, don’t worry. Depression therapy still proves effective in helping people manage their symptoms and get back to a happier, healthier place again. Additionally, medication for depression—like antidepressants—might also help.
