Depression can be caused by life events as well as be part of normal life for some people. When depressions hits it can be a struggle to even reach out for assistance but seeing a counsellor can make a big difference to how you feel. Having someone to process events and sort out your thoughts with is a positive step that can result in a significant reduction of distress. We can work together to examine your thoughts as they can have a big impact on how you feel, change those thought patterns and self talk and develop strategies to create an on-going practice of self-care.

In counseling individuals who are depressed, I find asking what they think their life would be like without the depression can help to find some goals they want to work towards. I also find that teaching about how feelings are affected by our thoughts and behaviors helps to develop a sense of control over the depression. Instead of spending time trying to figure out why a person is depressed, I take a here and now view of what the person wants and what are they doing to get what they want, is it working and do they want to find another way. I do this in my own life when I feel stuck and it does work!!

I use Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy in the treatment of depression. Depression is a very common reaction in life; whether you've experienced changes, transitions or traumatic incidences. I view depression as a time to enhance our tools, to learn and reflect on our experiences. Often, once remission is achieved, we gain a better sense of ourselves and different ways to approach life.
