Feeling helpless and hopeless is a symptom of depression—not the reality of your situation. If the thought of tackling depression seems overwhelming, don’t panic! The first step towards to recovery is to ask for help. Psychotherapy can be an enormous help. Effective treatment for depression often includes some form of psychotherapy. Therapy gives you insight and skills to prevent depression from taking over your life. By exploring the root of your depression, a therapist can help you understand why you feel a certain way and to discover your triggers for depression. You will gain practical techniques to reframe negative thinking and employ behavioral skills to combat depression.

Many individuals in Newfoundland experience periods of sadness and low mood throughout their lifetime. However, there are times when individuals find it very difficult to get past these feelings. Through counselling, individuals in St. John's learn to identify elements that may trigger their depression and look to replace negative thoughts with a positive outlook. Depression counselling will provide individuals with a safe environment where they can share their feelings without fear of judgement, and they will be provided with an opportunity to embark on a new journey of hope.

Depression is an immobilizing illness that requires non judgemental, caring, strengths-based approach. I believe that recognition of one's abilities, strengths, and life situations can help to change thinking errors that lead to depressed states. I work with clients to explore the positive aspects of their lives and to build hope, inner strength and resilience

For Depression I use the the very well researched cognitive behavioral therapy. Depression is attacked by changing the way one thinks feels and acts. Depression is tackled on all levels first with behavior changes, then with cognitive restructuring both of which require the clients active participation in their healing. Work outside the session is the key to change.

I incorporate several strategies in treating depression. The biggest potential growth for clients is learning how their thoughts can affect their mood. Often individuals can become stuck in a way of thinking that contributes to their depressive symptoms. I encourage clients to harness control over their thought processes and share strategies and techniques to support them doing so.
