Depression is different from simply feeling down or blue. Depression is a mood disorder that affects you in different ways, and may include feelings of hopelessness, anxiety, guilt, and/or worthlessness. Other common symptoms include a lack of energy, difficulty focusing, a change in eating or sleeping, and a loss of interest in sex or other pleasurable activities. Severe depression can also lead to thoughts of suicide or suicide attempts. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is very effective in helping people overcome depression through changing ways of thinking and relating to the world. I help clients understand the depression and incorporate ways of managing and changing their feelings.

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

Depression can be situational to a loss, disappointment, or acute incident. Depression can also be recurrent, relapsing and remitting. Depression is always parasitic, unpleasant and a dark cloud that can hover and cast shadow over our lives and relationships. Therapy with me seeks to achieve remission of depression and then we will focus on preventing relapse. I see depression as biological, situational and interpersonal. Therapy will explore precipitating stressors, contributory biological factors, and personal factors. Based on this knowledge we explore new ways on interacting with your world seeking to prevent relapse and manage risk factors as they emerge.

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

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.

I teach clients with mild to moderate depression symptoms that depression can often be a messenger from our deepest self and/or a call to action. I actually suggest specific actions that they can take to break out of the depression--inaction cycles. I suggest that they do an "inner dialogue" with the depression and ask it what is the cause of the depression. I suggest that if they cannot get at the "root cause" of the depression that they at least attempt to get to the region of their psyche that the depression is coming from. I suggest hypnosis to them. Research has shown a marked reduction in depression with the stimulation of the parasympathetic nervous system with hypnosis.

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.
