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 Riverside, OH 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 Riverside, OH 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.

What Are Common Causes and Symptoms of Depression?

Major life events can trigger the onset of depression, such as the loss of a job, a death in the family, or moving to a new location. However, some people feel depressed without any discernible reason. There may also be other causes, including genetic factors and side effects from drugs and prescription medications.

Clients in these situations may feel ashamed of their feelings, believing that there is something wrong with them. But your symptoms are no less real or valid simply because you cannot pinpoint the exact reason for your depression. If you are experiencing sadness for extended periods of time or any other depressive symptoms, it may be time to reach out for help.

Here are some of the most common symptoms of depression:

  • Feelings of emptiness or hopelessness
  • Mood swings
  • Loss of interest in normal activities
  • Social withdrawal
  • Outbursts of anger or aggression
  • Anxiety
  • Persistent sadness
  • Substance abuse
  • Insomnia or excessive sleeping
  • Thoughts of suicide or self-harm
  • Fatigue

What Does Counseling for Depression Look Like?

Those who suffer from depression may feel alone but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Depression counseling has helped countless people understand their symptoms, get the help they need, and start down the path of healing.

Therapy for depression is not a one-size-fits-all concept. Since depression can affect everyone differently, depression therapy is customized for each individual. When you start counseling, your therapist will talk with you about your medical history, your triggers, and your symptoms before setting goals for therapy and treatment.

Talk therapy is one of the most common tools used in the treatment of depression. Therapists provide clients with a safe space to talk through their issues, identify how their thoughts are impacting their condition, and learn how to cope more effectively. Treatment may also include prescribed medication if your psychiatrist determines it helpful in your situation.
