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 Troy, MI 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 Troy, MI 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 have therapy for depression?

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?

Feelings of hopelessness. A lack of motivation. Disinterest. Disconnect. Exhaustion. This is a mere glimpse at what it’s like to be depressed. Depression, in a nutshell, is a ruthless mental health condition. It can strike without a moment’s notice or develop over a gradual period of time. Depression comes with a persistent feeling of sadness or despair and a lack of interest in day to day living.

If one of your friends or family members were feeling this way, you’d want them to find the right help. This might mean leaning on you for support at times, but it’ll likely involve working closely with a mental health professional, such as a depression therapist. The reality is that we can try to help others who are experiencing symptoms of depression, but true healing will come with the intervention of a professional.

I found that with depression, one of the most important things you can realize is that you’re not alone. You’re not the first to go through it, you’re not gonna be the last to go through it. –Dwayne Johnson

Depression therapy is designed to help people work through their depression symptoms, understand any potential causes, and get back to living as their true selves. The depression therapists and counselors at Thriveworks Troy Counseling in Oakland County are qualified to provide this help. They know that you might be feeling hopeless right now, but they also know that they can help you work through this difficult feeling as well as the other harmful symptoms you are battling. So, consider reaching out. We’re here, and we’re ready to get started when you are. Just call our Thriveworks Troy Counseling office to get started.

Depression Symptoms: What Does It Feel Like to Be Depressed?

We started to detail what it feels like to be depressed, but depression isn’t just mental and emotional—it’s often physical too. In addition to the feelings of hopelessness, lack of motivation, disinterest, disconnect, exhaustion, depression can make sleeping difficult; it can cause you to lose your appetite and weight; it can cause stomach aches and other physical pains. Here is a more comprehensive list of the symptoms you might experience if you’re depressed:

  • A feeling of sadness or despair that doesn’t go away
  • Loss of interest in day to day life
  • Sleeping difficulties, such as insomnia or hypersomnia
  • Appetite and weight changes
  • Withdrawal from others
  • Feelings of hopelessness, worthlessness
  • Low self-esteem
  • Loss of focus
  • Moodiness
  • Social isolation and loneliness
  • Fatigue
  • Suicidal thoughts

The exact presentation of depression can vary from one individual to the next. For example, one person might struggle the most with a lack of focus, withdrawal from others, and feelings of hopelessness. Another individual might struggle more with a low self-esteem, fatigue, and moodiness.

Now, if you are exhibiting the first two symptoms—a feeling of sadness or despair that persists and a loss of interest in life—and several others on this list, you might be depressed. So, be sure to talk to a mental health professional, such as a depression therapist, to put together a plan for managing this illness and moving forward.

I've known Andrea for a number of years. Working with children is her passion. She just loves kids and will work diligently to achieve any child and parental goals. A firm believer that early detection/ treatment of childhood problems is the key for the development into a healthy adult. She works closely with parents and family members, as they play a crucial role in the child's successes. Always interested in expanding her knowledge base and keeps informed of new information related to her specialities. An extremely good listener and communicator that takes an active role in working with children and their family. I would highly recommend Andrea to anyone that is seeking an experienced counselor for their child.
