  • Consistent low mood
  • Fatigue

  • Changes in diet (eating much more or less)

Need more help deciding?

Depression is a common mental disorder that impacts millions of people across the United States each year. There are many forms of depression, and the disorder can look different for everyone. Whether you are struggling with feelings of low self-worth, suicidal thoughts, or something in between, we want you to know that help is available.

Depression is more than just feeling sad. It’s a mental illness that can severely disrupt a person’s day-to-day life. Thankfully, depression is treatable by working with a mental health professional. Consider reaching out to a therapist or counselor from Thriveworks Counseling in Shreveport, LA if you’re experiencing any symptoms of depression.

Depression: Most Common Symptoms

Everyone goes through good and bad periods in their life. Feeling depressed or sad can be a normal reaction to loss, struggles, or other issues. However, when these feelings become overwhelming and last for a long period of time, they might be a sign of a depressive disorder.

Some common depression symptoms include:

  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Fatigue
  • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, or helplessness
  • Changes in sleep habits
  • Pessimism or hopelessness
  • Restlessness
  • Substance abuse
  • Irritability or crankiness
  • Loss of interest in activities
  • Appetite loss or overeating
  • Anxiety
  • Suicidal thoughts

Depression is a mood disorder that can prevent you from achieving your goals and living your best life. Seeking treatment for depression is important because depressive disorders can get worse when left untreated. If you’re experiencing symptoms of depression and want professional support, consider reaching out to a provider at Thriveworks Counseling in Shreveport, LA.

Can Therapy Treat My Depression?

Most counselors or therapists use talk therapy to treat depression. There are many forms of talk therapy that can help, depending on your specific symptoms. One common type of therapy is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which focuses on addressing negative thought patterns. If CBT is right for you, your therapist will work with you to identify unhelpful thinking patterns and encourage you to challenge them to reduce your symptoms.

Treating depression can also include medication. Medication can be prescribed by a psychiatrist and is sometimes used in tandem with talk therapy to reduce depression symptoms and make them more manageable. Not all treatment plans will include medication but your provider will work with you to see if you’d be a good candidate for a prescription.

No matter what your treatment plan involves, your provider will create a judgment-free space for you to discuss your symptoms and work with you to chart a course forward. If you’d like to talk to someone about your depression, call our office at Thriveworks Counseling in Shreveport, LA.
