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 Red Bank, NJ 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 Red Bank, NJ 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 have therapy for depression?

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?

Sometimes, we have a bad day. Sometimes, a bad week. And sometimes, we have weeks where even getting out of bed seems impossible.

Depression rarely comes on all at once. It’s a slow, silent descent that leaves you wondering where it all went wrong.

It feels like everyone else is moving on with their lives while I am stuck here, in this hole that I can’t climb out of.”

What Does Depression Feel Like?

Depression presents itself differently to everyone. Some people feel a deep, never ending sadness, and others feel completely empty and numb. Some stay up all night and some sleep the day away. Your individual experience with depression is valid. Whatever you are feeling, whatever you are fighting, you can bring it all to a Thriveworks Red Bank counseling session. Counseling isn’t about pointing out all the bad, it’s about letting the good and healthy shine.

More than 264 million people world-wide suffer from depression, the World Health Organization says, so believe us when we say, you are not alone. And do you know what most of those people’s futures look like?

Free from depression.

Depression is a rampant mental illness, but it also has a remarkably high recovery rate. The first step is to acknowledge your problem, and then reach out to a professional. A few common symptoms of depression are:

  • Feeling worthless
  • Having no energy (may be called “lazy”)
  • A loss of interest in things that used to bring you joy
  • Mental fog (not thinking straight)
  • Abnormal sleeping patterns (sleeping too much or too little)
  • Unordinary eating habits (eating too much or too little)
  • Irritability
  • Changes in sex drive
  • Feeling down or sad
  • Suicidal thoughts or behavior

Depression is a multifaceted mental illness that can affect your social life, career, and physical health. If you or a loved one is struggling with depression, Thriveworks Red Bank is here to support, encourage, and help you.

How Does Counseling for Depression Work?

The basis of counseling is a professional relationship between counselor and client. It’s not a therapist telling you what to do. It’s not you being analyzed and scrutinized either. It’s built to fit your life!

When it comes to treating depression, Thriveworks Red Bank Depression Counseling has many tools that we can use to get you to where you want to be. For example, we might talk about:

  • The root cause of your depression (if it was brought on by an event)
  • Coping strategies
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (changing negative thoughts and detrimental behaviors)
  • How to rewire the way you think about yourself
  • Possible changes to your environment and routine to better your mental health. Things like exercise, healthy eating and good sleep are huge in winning the battle with depression.
  • Much more!

Everyone experiences depression differently, so everyone should experience counseling differently as well! At Thriveworks Red Bank, you are valued for being you. Nothing you is too much or too little for us to handle. We can’t snap our fingers and make everything better, but we can walk by you until we find the light again.

Depression doesn’t have to hold the keys to your life for any longer. When you’re ready, Thriveworks Red Bank is here to help you take back control and live the life you deserve.

Call 732-606-4469 to schedule an appointment today.

Zack Diamond Drake has some of the best ears around. If there is something dragging you down or simply holding you back, this individual will not only help you work through whatever it is, but help you to think through the process yourself. This, in my opinion, is the best kind of counseling there is. I would highly recommend his services.
