Aside from bio-chemical imbalances in one's body, depression can arise from a number of situational and relational factors. We can explore how any of these can be understood, responded to, and lived with in a way which can help to alleviate depressive challenges. It can be difficult to gain awareness of what's not right, and how to get things right, when you're battling just to survive. Our work together can help to clarify what's happening, and how to put helpful coping practices to work.

Depression is a common response to stressful life events, whether prolonged or acute. I help clients determine the possible causes, healthy copying strategies, support systems. Often my clients respond well to the offer of mindful presence and an empathic ear. I prefer to be a part of a larger team helping the client by encouraging them to speak with a spouse/partner, other family, doctor or religious community. I support responsibly the client's choice to pursue pharmaceutical treatment or not.

Depression is still so misunderstood in today's modern society. It is very commonly mis-diagnosed or too quick to be diagnosed by our traditional medical facilities, often leaving the person feeling worse off than they were before. I work with clients to find solutions out of their depression, to create goals for themselves, even small mini goals a day have an inspiring effect for the sufferer. I offer hope and light at the end of the tunnel, so the client can see a future for themselves.

I define Depression as having an "Emotional Fever." If you're running an emotional fever and find it difficult to recover. Hire me as your counselor/coach and I will help you: 1) understand the reasons of your depression, 2) learn to read your emotional thermometer, 3) track your emotional fever, 4) establish a nurse-patient self-care relationship, and 5) build a strong support system.

Depression is not a sign of weakness! I can help you alleviate the guilt that accompanies depression. I am trained in evidence based strategies that are as effective as medication, but also better for relapse prevention. Being compassionate to the self and learning to adjust negative thought and behaviour patterns are key factors in overcoming depression. I will work with you to establish small manageable goals that will not overwhelm you. I will help you to improve relationships that typically play a major role in sustaining depressive symptoms. Simply taking the time to talk and process your thoughts will help you to feel better after only 1 session.
