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 Westminster, CO 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 Westminster, CO 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?

Katie hasn’t felt like herself in the past few months. Her usual hobbies and activities have been abandoned, and the time she spends alone is miserable. She wants to expand her social circle—the friends that she has reached out to haven’t been reliable. While everything seems to be falling apart, Katie is stuck asking herself: Do things really have to be like this? 

Ultimately, she knows that she can’t continue to feel what she’s feeling for long. Katie’s also concerned that she may not just be upset; she’s worried that she might be depressed. But she knows that she needs professional help for treatment, either way. That’s why Katie’s looking to get depression therapy–she hopes that by opening up to a mental health professional about the sadness she’s faced with, they will be able to understand and help her cope. 

You may also be experiencing the painful symptoms of depression and feel like you have nowhere to turn. You’re not alone, though—at Thriveworks in Westminster, CO our providers can help you manage the symptoms of your depression. Find a mental health ally and a source of support by connecting with a therapist or psychiatrist at Thriveworks. 

Do I Have Depression? What Does It Feel Like?

Depression is like many other mental health conditions in that it can manifest differently for everyone. With that in mind, there are several common signs that may indicate that you’re depressed, including: 

  • A noted lack of interest in sex, hobbies, or relationships
  • Decreased work performance
  • Feeling chronically fatigued   
  • Distancing oneself from loved ones and friends 
  • Overeating or avoiding eating 
  • Lack of self-care (i.e. personal hygiene or a clean living environment)
  • Drug or alcohol abuse to cope with emotional pain 

When you’re experiencing emotional turmoil, it’s tempting to self-diagnose, but only a trained professional, like one of our providers, can give you an accurate mental health diagnosis. The more you share with your mental health professional, the better able they will be to help you manage your mental health needs. 

What Are the Treatment Options for Depression?

Both our psychologists and our psychiatrists help everyday people to manage depression. However, each provider type has a different treatment approach and can assist you in coping with depression in different ways. As a general rule, more severe cases of depression are often treated by psychiatrists, while more general cases are managed with the assistance of a psychologist. 

Psychologists help those with depression by: 

  • Using talk and behavioral therapy to implement coping strategies for clients 
  • Creating a professional connection with their client to better understand their depression 
  • Serving as a verbal and emotional outlet for those burdened by this mood disorder

Psychiatrists, on the other hand, are: 

  • Medical doctors who are also licensed to conduct therapy sessions 
  • Able to use helpful prescription medicine and therapy as needed to assist people 

Regardless of the mental health professional that you’re paired with, their goal will be to assist you with reducing the harmful effects of depression on your daily life.

What Type of Depression Could I Have?

There are many forms of depression, and symptoms often vary, depending on the individual. Still, some common types of depression that our providers can help to treat include: 

  • Major depression: This is what most people think of when they hear the word “depression.” This disorder causes emotional detachment, sadness, hopelessness, and apathy. 
  • Minor depression: As the name implies, this is less severe than major depression but just as harmful. Because those with this disorder may go long periods without feeling depressed, identifying what’s triggering their sadness can be difficult for those with minor depression.
  • Bipolar disorder: Bipolar disorder can cause depression when the mood swings that it causes fluctuate. Those with bipolar disorder may feel extremely happy for a minute, and furious or dejected in the next.
  • Postpartum depression: Postpartum depression affects women who’ve given birth; those who underwent caesarian sections or had a miscarriage are at higher risk. This disorder can onset immediately or months after childbirth.

Chris at Thrive Works saved my life. I started at the beginning of the pandemic, by phone, and I didn’t think therapy by phone would have the impact that it did. But I tried for my kids, my marriage, and myself. I can’t say enough good things about Chris. Thank you for everything, and for literally saving my life. I wouldn’t be alive without his counsel.

Initially I saw Jacob for my intake appointment and felt he was really great. I was placed with Kate Kelly and overall she is fabulous. She has helped me live to my full potential. She has helped me sort out my PTSD with childhood and adult trauma, as well as being a great resource for addiction counseling. She was also extremely helpful to point me in the right direction on how to deal with (or escape from) toxic family members. She was also a really great help to me during grief and loss of a loved one. I feel so much better than I did before going to Thriveworks. I'm in a great place now and will be back in the future. I can't thank you enough.

Jacob has helped me much more than any therapist I've ever seen. His skill, insight, and kindness are truly outstanding. Jacob has helped me change my life so that my depression is no longer in charge. His approach is very direct - which may not be for everyone but was perfect for me - but he always acts and speaks with sincere compassion. Thank you, Jacob, you have helped heal me at a level I thought was impossible. Also, Jennifer has always been super wonderful and responsive withheduling and questions. She goes above and beyond to be helpful and kind. Thanks Jennifer! You're awesome.
