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 St Charles, MO 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 St Charles, MO 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?

If you’ve ever struggled with depression, you already know that it can be challenging to recognize the symptoms and even harder to manage them independently. Even though depression is a common mental health issue, it is also a very serious condition that can make life much more difficult for people with the disorder.

Depression can change the way you feel, think, and act. Physical and psychological symptoms may become overwhelming and can affect your personal relationships, work, or school, and make it impossible to complete basic tasks. If left untreated, depression can have a detrimental effect on your life and overall wellbeing.

Fortunately, even severe forms of depression can be treated and managed with the help of a mental health professional. A therapist, counselor, psychologist, or psychiatrist can diagnose your symptoms, teach you valuable coping skills, and help you manage your condition.

You don’t have to struggle with depression on your own — we want you to know that support is available. If you think you could be suffering from depression or another mood disorder, consider reaching out to a provider from Thriveworks Counseling in St. Charles, MO. Call our office or use our online scheduling tool to set up your first appointment.

Recognizing the Signs and Symptoms of Depression

There are many forms of depression, and each one can look completely different from person to person. Even depressive disorders with similar causes can manifest a different set of physiological, psychological, and emotional symptoms.

While the cause of depression is not completely understood, there are a variety of factors that contribute to the development of depressive disorders. Genetics, your medical history, or past experiences can play a part in the development of a depressive disorder.

Even though the causes and risk factors of depression remain uncertain, there are some commonalities in symptoms. A person with depression might have one or many of the following symptoms:

  • Persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, guilt, or worthlessness
  • Fatigue, lethargy, and tiredness
  • Sleeping too much or too little
  • Agitation, irritability, or angry outbursts
  • Disinterest or lack of joy in most activities
  • Headache, dizziness, or unexplained pain
  • Trouble thinking, concentrating, or making decisions
  • Slowed thinking, speaking, or body movements

Some forms of depression may cause symptoms that aren’t listed above or accompany another mental health disorder. If you want to work with a professional for a depression diagnosis, consider speaking with a provider at Thriveworks in St. Charles, MO.

How Can Depression Treatment Help Me?

The symptoms of depression rarely go away on their own. Unhealthy coping mechanisms can lead to harmful behaviors such as self-harm or substance abuse and even cause depression symptoms to worsen. But even the most challenging depression symptoms can be managed by working with a mental health professional.

Depression therapy is a highly personalized process that begins with a diagnosis for your symptoms and concerns. Your therapist or counselor will then construct a treatment plan based on your personality, emotional state, specific issues, and personal preferences.

Your treatment plan may include one or multiple types of talk therapy. Talk therapy can help you better understand your condition, teach you how to cope with symptoms, and help you manage the causes or triggers of your disorder. Some common forms of therapy that may effectively treat depression include the following:

  • Behavior therapy
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
  • Interpersonal therapy

Prescription medications are another part of many depression treatment plans. Antidepressants can reduce the symptoms of depression and make it easier to manage the disorder. Lifestyle adjustments and stress-relieving techniques such as meditation, breathing practices, or decreasing alcohol intake can also help manage and reduce depression symptoms.

Depression can be frustrating, but it can be managed by working with a licensed professional. Counselors and therapists can provide support to help you improve your mental and emotional well-being.
