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 Vallejo, CA 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 Vallejo, CA 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?

It’s common for people to experience feelings of sadness every once in a while. But when these feelings are persistent and begin to produce symptoms that negatively affect your ability to function, it may be time to consider depression counseling as a way to get your life back on track.

Many people who suffer from depression are reluctant to get help. They may not think their symptoms are serious enough to require counseling services. They may be too embarrassed to reach out for help; they may even feel held back by their hectic schedule. People push off getting help for all kinds of reasons but depressive disorders won’t typically go away on their own — they often require the help of a licensed mental health professional.

If depression is getting in the way of your life, Thriveworks in Vallejo, CA can help. We provide a safe, comfortable atmosphere that allows our clients to open up about their depression symptoms and get the treatment they need. We make it easy and affordable to get help so you can focus on getting better. When you’re ready to get started, we’re ready to help you take the next step.

What Are Typical Depression Symptoms?

It’s common to feel down every now and then, but ongoing, severe depression can really start to interfere with your life. Mental illnesses and mood disorders can affect your day-to-day functioning and make simple tasks difficult to complete. They can affect your relationships with others and they can even be detrimental to your physical health.

Here are some symptoms of depression that may indicate it’s a good time to reach out for help:

  • A loss of interest in the things you used to love
  • Trouble sleeping and getting out of bed in the morning
  • An inability to complete normal day-to-day tasks
  • Mood changes
  • Weight loss or weight gain
  • Decreased energy
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Lack of self-esteem
  • Substance abuse

If any of these symptoms have started to interfere with your life, consider reaching out to Thriveworks in Vallejo, CA today to set up an appointment.

What Does the Treatment of Depression Look Like?

If you are experiencing severe feelings of depression, Thriveworks in Vallejo, CA has therapists and counselors on-hand who are trained to customize a treatment plan that is suitable to your unique situation. Here are some common treatment options that may be integrated into your counseling sessions:

  • Talk therapy: Talk therapy encourages communication between the therapist and the client so they can identify and resolve issues causing emotional distress.
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT): CBT is a specific type of talk therapy that focuses on identifying and changing harmful thought patterns to more effectively regulate your emotions and reduce symptoms.
  • Medication: In some cases, depression may be due to chemical imbalances that can be treated with medication. In these instances, our psychiatrists can prescribe antidepressants or other medications to help alleviate your symptoms in the short term or long term.
  • Coping skills: Some clients benefit from learning how to self-soothe and tolerate distress more effectively through relaxation techniques, exercise, changes in eating habits, meditation, and other coping mechanisms.
