Struggling with depression can cause a sense of helplessness and hopelessness. You are not alone in your struggle as there are many that have a hard time functioning daily due to depression. In our therapy sessions, you will learn how to identify the origin of your depression, coping skills to manage depression symptoms and assist you with identifying negative thoughts that affect your low mood. As we start the therapy process in discussing your depression, this will lead to more insight and overall better quality of life.

My work with clients who experience depression involves the identification of one's 'internal working model' or lens that filters one's experience of self, other, and life in general. Persistent, negative thoughts about oneself ('I am worthless'), the other ('People cannot be trusted') and the future ('there is no hope that things will change') shape experience and relationships thus perpetuating a negative cycle. Experience of self and other within a safe, nonjudgemental, strength based working relationship fosters movement towards trust, self-worth and hope.
