Need more help deciding?

Depression is a ruthless disease that makes its victims feel hopeless, uninterested, and generally unhappy with life. Anxiety, on the other hand, is a brutal condition that makes its victims feel worried, scared, or on edge constantly.

Both of these mental health disorders are major hurdles to living happy, healthy, or successful lives. Those who suffer with either (or both) struggle to go to work, maintain their relationships, and function normally throughout the day. And if they go on without receiving the right help or treatment, their symptoms often worsen.

I’m a very strong believer in listening and learning from others.”

–Ruth Bader Ginsburg

The good news here is that there is help and treatment out there for those who struggle with depression and/or anxiety. To be more specific, there are therapists and psychologists who specialize in assessing, diagnosing, and treating depression and anxiety. If you are experiencing depression or anxiety symptoms, it’s important that you receive the right help and support before your condition worsens. You can schedule an appointment for depression therapy or anxiety therapy today—just call Thriveworks Counseling in Toms River, NJ. Our team is here to help.

Depression Signs and Symptoms: Am I Depressed?

The diagnosis and prompt treatment of depression relies on the individual’s self-report of symptoms. This means that the individual must understand what the symptoms of depression look like. Here is a comprehensive list of symptoms:

  • A “down” or depressed mood, nearly 24/7, characterized by feelings of hopelessness, emptiness, etc.
  • Lack of interest in daily activities
  • Significant changes in weight
  • Sleep disturbances, like insomnia or hypersomnia
  • Fatigue or low energy levels
  • Difficulty concentrating or making decisions
  • Feelings of worthlessness
  • Thoughts of suicide

According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, one must display at least 5 of these symptoms to meet the criteria for a depression diagnosis. If you do have these symptoms, don’t worry. There is help out there, and there is nothing to be ashamed of. Millions of people in the US struggle with this mental illness every year.

Thriveworks Counseling has therapists on our team who specialize in helping people manage their depression. We’ll build a treatment plan around your specific symptoms and unique needs. You can get started today by calling our office in Toms River, NJ.

My therapist is Lesley Petersen and I have been a patient of hers for about four months now. She has been helping me through a stressful situation that I have been going through. I would recommend her because she is easy to talk to and non-judgmental.

awfully. Goes on vacation for two weeks. Double books me. Calls me one minute before our scheduled meeting time. Says the other person is inside the office and cannot see me. says to me I will call me that night and then says to me via a text message that I will call in the morning. Calls me at 11:am. We have our session where she keeps adding restrictions on me and says "it's nothing personal". Speaks very low that I cannot hear.Tells me she sees 50 people weekly and cannot talk on the phone.

Thriveworks is great and really cares for clients, I fully recommend them! And I honestly cannot say enough good things about Sharon Ryan. I never feel wrong, crazy, or judged while speaking with her. She is so comforting and provides excellent, accurate insights. I really appreciate her interest and understanding as well as her flexibility for appointments. I’ve been struggling with losing interest in hobbies that I once loved. With Sharon’s help, I’ve developed new interests I’ve always wanted to try and expanded my horizons. Thank you so much, truly, from the bottom of my heart!

I recommend checking out Thriveworks to find a mental health care provider that can suit your needs. The owners are sweet, genuine people who make it their mission to help others by connecting therapists and those who want a little guidance. Your mental health is important (especially these days) and you don't need to being in a crisis to see a therapist! In fact, its better to seek out a therapist before you can't cope on your own.
