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 Salem, OR 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 Salem, OR 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?

Depressive disorders can take on many different forms, from major depression to mild cyclothymia. Regardless of the severity, depression deserves specialized care and treatment. If you’ve ever had feelings of depression, our team at Thriveworks in Salem, OR is ready to assist you. We offer convenient appointment options in the evenings and on weekends, and we make therapy affordable by accepting most major insurances. Reach out today to get started.

Forms of Depression and Common Causes

When treating depression, a professional must first assess your symptoms and identify the type of mood disorder you face. There are several different forms of depression, including:

  • Bipolar disorder
  • Postpartum depression
  • Major depressive disorder (MDD)
  • Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD)
  • Seasonal affective disorder (SAD)
  • Persistent depressive disorder (PDD)

Depression can be caused by biology and genetics (bipolar disorder, persistent depressive disorder), hormones (premenstrual dysphoric disorder, major depressive disorder), or changes in the season (seasonal affective disorder). Personality, stressful or big life events, substance abuse, and the environment can also play a role in developing any of the above depressive disorders.

To know the root of your mental health challenge, a professional will need to make an assessment. If you’d like to get started with a licensed counselor or therapist, consider calling us at Thriveworks in Salem, OR. We would love to assist you.

When Is the Right Time to Seek Depression Therapy?

With symptoms such as fatigue, disinterest, and sadness, depression can feel overwhelming. It may decrease your motivation to work or play, and it can negatively impact your relationships with your friends, colleagues, and family members. But depression is treatable. With guidance and planning, you can retake the reins of your life and steer yourself back on course.

Depression therapy gives you the chance to speak to a professional provider who can diagnose and treat your specific condition. They may use a form of talk therapy, like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), to help address the issues that are contributing to your symptoms. Medication may be prescribed, and you may be asked to complete out-of-office tasks and assessments that will help you manage your illness for the long term.

Your treatment plan will be customized to fit your needs and goals. At Thriveworks in Salem, OR, we look forward to helping you find the right course of action to make a positive impact on your life. Reach out to us today for more information.
