Depression Counseling – Therapists and Counselors in Round Rock, TX

You’ve probably heard people talk about the cause of depression simply being a “chemical imbalance.” That mode of thinking can lead us to believe that all we need to correct this chemical imbalance is medication, but the truth is that managing your depression is often more complex than that. Neurons that fire together wire together based on our experiences, thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations. When you repeat an experience over and over again, the brain learns to trigger the same neurons each time. If your experiences result in feelings that are stressful, hopeless, frustrating, lonely, helpless and so on, they can lead to some depressed symptoms like:

  • Obsessive or ruminating thoughts
  • You feel nothing, otherwise described as feeling numb
  • Crying when it doesn’t make sense
  • Sleeping too much or not enough
  • Loss of interest in activities
  • Change in appetite
  • Being glued to social media
  • Your head is in the clouds
  • Anger or a “short fuse”
  • Apathy (not caring)
  • Changes in eating or sleeping
  • Giving up/Stopping activities that you used to enjoy
  • Reduction in self care
  • Just not doing anything

Therapy can help you shift your thinking, feel more accepting of your feelings, and be more present with your body sensations. Ultimately, with a therapist as your helpful guide, you can learn more adaptive ways to shift your day to day experiences in order to thrive.

Depression is an illness like many others, it should not be embarrassing, it’s not an issue of “will power” or “snapping out of it.” “Wishing” to not be depressed usually works about as well as wishing away diabetes or a broken leg. It takes work (treatment), but is usually able to be addressed with some time.

One of the worst tricks about depression is that it when you are depressed, you act depressed. This seems obvious, and makes sense, however the tricky part about it is that acting depressed is depressing, leading to further depression. This is important in that it becomes both self sustaining and isolating. For many, it becomes increasingly difficult to break that cycle. However, you are far from alone. Depression is one of the most common (along with anxiety) mental health issues in this country.

It affects everything:

  • Workplace performance
  • Relationships (friends/partners/children)
  • Physical health
  • Physical presentation
  • Keeping up with day to day responsibilities such as paying bills
  • So many other things

You are not alone, but this is hard to do alone. Let us help you thrive, give Thriveworks Round Rock a call at (512) 212-7045.
