Round Rock Depression Counseling

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.

Mary Guthrie

I have worked with Mary for over a year now. To say she is phenomenal is an understatement. She has helped me grow so much as an individual and has provided me with endless resources along the way. She is easy to talk to and genuinely cares for you as a person. I would not be who I am today had it not been for Mary. I look forward in continuing my therapy journey with Mary in all my years to come.

I have been working with Mary Guthrie for a little more than a year. With her help and guidance I have taken great strides to come out a very long and very black time that included a debilitating illness. She challenges you to find your personal strength and to use it to move forward in a positive direction. Thank you Mary for everything you have helped me with

Aimee Corona

Aimee has been an invaluable person in my journey of mental health recovery. She has helped me to reframe situations in more rational and healthy ways, and has helped me to understand that it is possible to truly move on from things I’ve thought would always control my life. I would highly recommend her. She listens really well, gives thoughtful advice and daily practices to implement, and truly cares about seeing you get healthy!

Amazing Therapist

I have seen Aimee in Round Rock for almost a year for anxiety, depression and some difficult life decisions. Since our first appointment I felt completely at ease, never judged in any way or rushed through a session. She is passionate and genuinely invested in my well being. I have recommended her to many friends.

Amazing Therapist!

I have been working with Aimee for the past several months. She’s an amazing therapist that tells me what I need to hear, and helps me realize things that I’ve been ignoring. She’s a very optimistic, energetic, and honest person.

Aimee Corona is incredibly skilled, compassionate, encouraging, and knows when to exercise "tough love" to help the client become more confident and guide them through their recovery. She has a very whole person approach and works to get to know the client without judgment. Her goal in our family and individual treatment has been to help us heal, grow, and become more confident independently. She has always held our best interest at heart and is incredibly professional. I highly recommend Ms. Corona.
