Common Depression Symptoms

Our Licensed Professional Therapists are highly experienced in walking with people through the darkness of depression, to a renewed sense of hope and joy.

Signs & Symptoms

Feeling sad, discouraged about the future, feel like a failure, don’t get much satisfaction out of life, feel guilty, feel like your being punished, feel like a disappointment, blame yourself for everything bad that happens, have thoughts about killing yourself, cry all the time or can’t even if you want to, feel irritated often, lost interest in other people, have difficulty making decisions, feel ugly, have trouble working, have trouble sleeping, feel too tired to do most things, loss of appetite, loss of weight, can’t stop eating, gained a bunch of weight, worried about your health, change in sex drive? These are all common depression symptoms.

We can help.

Bulimia

Emotional eating / binging with or without purging (forcing oneself to throw-up, severe fasting, or laxative use) is an unhealthy way of coping with depression.

You can learn to manage your emotions without an unhealthy relationship with food. Let us help you break the cycle of self-loathing, shame, and self sabotage so you can feel good about your body, your self, and your life.

Grief

Experienced significant change in your life over the past year? Many people are surprised to find out that significant change, good or bad, triggers grief.
The most common changes associated with grief are the loss of a loved one. However, loss of job, a move, empty nest, aging, and many other life changes involve grief too.

Grief has depression like symptoms that, if we don’t process well, we can get stuck in and can compound over time as we have other life events.

Let us help you get un-stuck.

Sexual Identity

Fears, doubts, internal conflict, questions, and concerns about sexual identity take their toll over time, causing depression. We use the Sexual Identity Therapy framework to work through with you the complex sexual issues surrounding same-sex attraction and gender dysphoria.

We will be a safe place for you to process your experience, gain understanding about yourself, ask the tough questions, make decisions, figure out what you want to do and how to go about doing it.

You don’t have to stay depressed and you don’t have to figure this out alone. We are here for you.

Wondering if you are depressed?

Are you feeling more sad than usual? Crying more often? Finding less enjoyment in things?

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the counseling fees?

Fees range from $55 to $195 depending on the level of experience of your counselor. All first-time appointments will be charged a non-refundable one-time $35 assessment and setup fee at the time of scheduling.

Advanced Practice: $165-195/session

We have 4 Fee Tiers to choose from, starting at $55/session. Payment plans are available as low as $50/week. You may qualify for a scholarship from your church or work. We also offer 1 free session of online counseling through our Strong Families Scholarship.

Are you in-network for insurance?

MyCounselor.Online is a Christian counseling center focused on providing the highest quality care possible. As such we are unwilling to enter into any arrangement that might pressure us to compromise quality to increase insurance company profits. Thus, at present, we are not a part of any private insurance in-network panels.

That being said, outpatient psychotherapy is a covered benefit under many insurance plans and we do have a number of clients who receive out-of-network benefits for our services. Some networks, recognizing our excellence in certain specialized areas, have agreed to reimburse our clients at in-network levels even though we are not on their in-network panels. This is solely at the discretion of your insurance provider.

Can you file my insurance?

Yes. We can submit a claim for reimbursement of service fees to your insurance on your behalf for a fee* or you may submit claims to your insurance company directly. We cannot accept consignment for insurance benefits and have no control over how much your policy will cover or how covered claims will be applied based on your deductible. You are responsible for paying fully for your services at the time of your appointment.

*In an effort to hold down costs associated with providing the most effective and helpful professional clinical services possible, MCO outsources our medical billing request to an independent medical biller. The $5 fee for this service is passed along to those requesting this service.

How soon can I get in?

Appointments are available Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Also keep in mind that each counselor’s schedule is different, and availability may vary depending on how busy they are and whether they have any cancellations.

If you need to get in quick and have flexibility with which counselor you see, we may be able to schedule you with a therapist same-day if you contact us before 5 pm CT.

What’s your cancellation policy?

If you fail to give notice of cancellation by 5 p.m. CT the business day before your scheduled appointment, your credit or debit card will be charged for the time you reserved.

A counselor’s time is very perishable. Unlike an item you return at the store that can be resold, once time has passed it is forever gone. Like a hotel room, once the time for cancellation of your appointment reservation has passed the time is yours, whether or not you are able to use it. When we hold an appointment slot for you we turn other people, who like you are looking for help, away. It’s not fair to the people we must turn away or to the counselor if you do not pay for the time held for you, even if the circumstances are beyond your control (they are also beyond the control of your counselor and those denied an appointment).

Canceling or rescheduling your appointment as soon as you become aware you will not be able to make it, 5 pm CT the business day before at the latest, allows us to offer your appointment time to those waiting for an appointment and those in crisis.
In the event of inclement weather or other circumstances that prevent you from making it to our office, you may be able to use your session time over the phone or by video

We apply the cancellation policy without favoritism and with uniformity to all clients to whom it applies.
