Raleigh, NC Depression and Anxiety Counseling in Wake County

Depression and anxiety are brother and sister. More often than not, if you are feeling depression—there is at least a moderate amount of anxiety that accompanies your depression symptoms. Similarly, if you’re dealing with some type of anxiety—be it general anxiety, social anxiety, or something else—while you might not be experiencing a full-blown major depressive disorder, it’s highly likely you’re going to experience some depression symptoms.

If you think this is true for you, consider getting help at Thriveworks Raleigh, NC. We have depression and anxiety counselors who would love to help you. We offer evening and weekend sessions, and we accept most major insurances.

Recognizing the Symptoms of Depression and Anxiety

Depression and anxiety are common, but that doesn’t make them any less painful—and being common doesn’t make them any less intrusive to your daily functioning. People who’ve never been depressed don’t know how difficult it can be to pull your sock up in the morning (spoiler, it’s really hard, and takes forever just to get dressed). People who’ve never experienced an anxiety disorder can’t understand how the thought of something like simply leaving your home and going for dinner might as well be climbing Mount Everest, it feels so impossible. The good news, though, is that you can learn to recognize the symptoms.

When noticing symptoms of anxiety, it is easy to understand or pinpoint the cognitive symptoms: racing thoughts, thinking of the worst, and extreme emotional responses,” explains Victoria Baxter, a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor at Thriveworks in Raleigh. “The harder ones to identify are the physiological ones: trouble breathing, tight chest, sweating, trouble sleeping, shaking, stomach/digestive issues, fatigue.”

Scheduling Depression and Anxiety Counseling at Thriveworks Raleigh

The anxiety and depression counselors, coaches, psychologists, and mental health providers at Thriveworks in Raleigh know what it’s like to feel these symptoms. More importantly, they know that not only are the symptoms treatable, depression and anxiety-related disorders are two of the most treatable mental health disorders. Our therapists are leaders in the field and we’re not shy to list the many places Thriveworks and its team members have been featured for their knowledge and expertise.

That said, most importantly, our Raleigh, NC staff is caring, and they’re available to help you. Give us a call! Let’s get started.

Had bad fall last year and I was feeling sad, depressed and angry cuz now I couldn't go to see my auntie mom like I was doing two or three times a year.  Now I have to be home I broke my wrist in two places now I have doctors and doctors and doctors and x-rays and all this other stuff going on and I felt like I didn't have my life, didn't have a life right then and I know I would get better but it was taking too long so that was infecting me mentally and so I found the Thriveworks card at my pain doctors office and I gave him a call and immediately they set me up with an appointment.  I've had three or four appointments now.  I'm starting to feel better because I live by myself, I'm 71, and I needed someone to talk to so y'all set me up with a very nice lady.  I learned out to do Zoom and a couple meetings of course, but I'm feeling better  as time goes on.  I still have to have another surgery but at least I'm closer to being able to traveling again right now I can even walk a half a block so thank you Thriveworks for being there for me.  I don't know how ling I need you but I'm glad you're there.  My person is kind to start phone she allows me to talk, she gives me feedback, and I'm just so grateful to have had her during this holiday as well so I've also recommended a couple other people to try Thriveworks right at my doctor's office and they seem interested.  Thank you Thriveworks

I have known Mrs. Ashley Barber-Brown for 18 years now and I can honestly say that she is truly an amazing person. Besides her strong will to work hard and take care of her family, Ashley is also compassionate and undoubtedly dedicated to making sure that she helps others. Her selflessness, loyalty and authentic personality are just some of the many attributes that I admire about her.
