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 , 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 , 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.

Need more help deciding?

We all feel sad, unhappy, and down in the dumps, from time to time. We all feel a little unmotivated, struggle to focus, and even pull away from our loved ones sometimes. But when it comes to depression, one experiences a deep despair that is unlike meek feelings of sadness. In depression, one can’t work up the motivation or the desire to get out of bed; one can’t focus or stay on task, despite their greatest efforts; one can’t and doesn’t want to exit their bubble of social isolation, even to talk to their best friends and closest family members.

We all feel nervous, unsettled, and worried, every now and then. We all lose our appetite, experience fatigue, and struggle to sleep at night sometimes. But when it comes to anxiety, one experiences racing thoughts and out of control worry that they can’t set aside. With anxiety, one can’t get their food down or lay down for a few minutes and feel better; one can’t bounce back the next day and sleep just fine again.

Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.”

–Helen Keller

If you are feeling depressed and/or presenting symptoms of depression, please talk to a doctor or mental health professional. In the same breath, if you’re feeling anxious and/or presenting symptoms of anxiety, please talk to a medical professional in this instance as well. Both of these diseases are relentless, and almost always require an outside intervention.

Consider starting a relationship with a depression therapist or anxiety therapist at Thriveworks Rhode Island Counseling.

Online counseling is designed to be the more convenient, flexible, and comfortable counseling option.

What Is Depression? What Are Common Symptoms of Depression?

Depression isn’t just feeling sad. It is a mental illness that makes day to day living difficult and unenjoyable. This disease is relentless—however, there is effective treatment that can help one manage their symptoms and potentially overcome their depression: depression therapy. Depression therapy, paired with vital self-care activities and sometimes medication, can make for an effective treatment plan. Part of this treatment plan will be learning to better manage one’s depression symptoms, which can include:

  • Guilt
  • Mood swings
  • Restlessness
  • Social isolation
  • Excessive sleepiness
  • Insomnia and other sleep disturbances
  • Lack of concentration or focus
  • Changes in weight and/or appetite
  • Thoughts of suicide

As we’ve said before, these symptoms can prove very harmful. It can make daily functioning difficult, from just getting out of bed in the morning to going to work each day and maintaining relationships with others. The good news is that the depression therapists at Thriveworks Rhode Island can help you manage these symptoms and get your depression under control.

What Is Anxiety? What Anxiety Symptoms Do I Need to Look Out For?

Anxiety isn’t just feeling worried. Like depression, it is a serious mental illness that makes day to day activities and functioning really difficult. Again, though, there is effective treatment out there: anxiety therapy. Anxiety therapy can help one learn to control this worry and get a hand on the negative thinking patterns they might be engaging in. At its roots, anxiety therapy is meant to help one better manage their anxiety, including symptoms like:

  • Irritability
  • Hypervigilance
  • Lack of focus
  • Fatigue
  • Sweating
  • Fear
  • A feeling of impending doom
  • Nausea

While these symptoms can be scary, you don’t have to suffer from them in silence. There are tactics that can prove to help you manage them, of which your Thriveworks Rhode Island anxiety therapist will teach you. Please consider partnering with one of our therapists, as we believe that you’ll find anxiety therapy incredibly beneficial, if you are experiencing the above anxiety symptoms.
