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 Tigard, 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 Tigard, 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?

The poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow once stated, “Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not, and oftentimes we call a man cold when he is only sad.” Depression can manifest in social “coldness,” but it can also manifest in anger, anxiety, and physical pain. Dealing with depression can seem like an uphill battle when someone is in the throes of the mental health disorder. Everything may seem impossible, and taking the first step toward feeling better can be overwhelming. The good news is that depression is highly treatable. If you can make that first step toward an exceptional depression counselor, you can begin the path to recovery.

The depression counselors and psychiatrists at Thriveworks in Tigard, OR are fully licensed and highly qualified to deliver the best care possible to people suffering from depression. The mental health providers at Thriveworks don’t just treat the diagnosis; they treat the whole person. That means taking a number of factors into account, including genetic, environmental, psychosocial, and neurochemical, to help clients achieve their therapy goals. If you think you could benefit from depression counseling, reach out to Thriveworks Tigard today to get started.
