When we are feeling depressed, there are several mental mistakes that we are making. So my role as a therapist is to help people correct those mental mistakes behind depression. Once those are corrected, the hoplessness dissipates and hope starts to glimmer. When the client is feeling calm about his/her circumstance, it will then be easy to make him/her feel the way he/she really wants to feel

Sadness and Depression are often challenges we may encounter in our lifetime. Feelings, thoughts and behaviors associated with them can at times overwhelm and even paralyze us with their power. In a supportive and empathic environment I help clients understand these feelings, progress through their isolation with them, find a way through their tight hold and learn to live productively again.

When engulfed in the blackness of depression we loose site of the debilitating negative cloud casting despair over all aspects of our life. We come to see our lives solely through the depression lens rather than being able to construct an accurate map of our reality. With psychotherapy we can learn to once again access a more balanced vision of our living that better recognizes the goodness in our lives and provides direction to possibilities. Depending on the level of clinical depression, medication is often recommended temporarily in conjunction with psychotherapy to alleviate depression symptoms and help bring motivation for movement--the client can begin to help themselves

I have found the Cognitive/Behavioural model of therapy the most efficient one to use with clients suffering from long term depression. Acute depression responds well to Relational, Experiential and Attachment based models of therapy. Most important however, is a warm, empathic, supportive environment in which to explore and resolve client's needs

Therapy can be a place where clients can explore the blocks they are experiencing to feeling ok. Sometimes such things as early childhood experiences, trauma [recent or historic], challenging work situations, feeling overwhelmed in life, and interpersonal and relationship struggles can contribute to feeling disempowered, hopeless, helpless, numb, exhausted, and disinterested in life. Being able to feel supported, to explore and come to understand what is happening, to explore the body's and the nervous system's role in how one is feeling, to speak freely can often help.

Depression often seems to come out of the blue. Medication often helps, but the treatment is not complete without psychotherapy. Depression is rooted in past and recent events that are seen as insignificant, but are not that insignificant after all. My goal is to help you identify the events that caused the depression and help you manage the emotions and beliefs associated with it.

Many people experience a depressed mood during their life when they feel limited in finding the joy, focus, energy and achievements they used to enjoy. Depression can affect many areas of living and you deserve to get support in striving to bring back your hope and drive for accomplishments. I work with individuals and families to come to greater understanding of the struggles and strengths unique to their situations, consider meanings limiting choices, and find and act on ways to gain back one’s life from the influence of sadness. I am experienced supporting those grieving loss or navigating life changes or difficult situations. Your healing journey can benefit from compassionate support
