Depression treatment counsellors can help clinically depressed or mildly depressed individuals find the origin of their depression, so it is treated more permanently. In combination with meditation or without, cognitive behavioural therapy, bi-lateral stimulation, EMDR and exposure therapies are skillfully woven into Shift’s protocol, to create a structured and highly effective treatment. Risk factors and development factors are investigated in the initial intake session. Continued screenings for treatment progression and depression symptoms are present in all subsequent sessions, as well.

I work with clients diagnosed with clinical depression and with clients who due to certain circumstances may temporarily experience feelings that characterize depression such as sadness, despair, low self-esteem, emotional numbness, or unworthiness. I help my clients to gain a new perspective on their present life and to find hope for their future. It is important to alleviate the unpleasant feelings that accompany depression. At the same time it is important to understand the causes of depression and to give meaning to personal experience and desires. I accompany my clients in their journey of growth, in their search to feel better, to discover and reach their potential.

I believe in an approach to helping that starts from building on the strengths of the client; using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused, and Problem Solving pragmatic approaches to help the client learn new strategies to initially cope and then delve into changing the way they think about themselves and their world. Breaking and changing ineffective and damaging thinking patterns and replacing them with more effective and sound habits and patterns is the groundwork for change. I also believe that using an existential approach that takes into account searching for and creating meaning is crucial to building success and growing out of depression.

It can be hard to cope day-to-day when you experience depression. The inner critic can seem so loud and overwhelming. It can be hard to do daily tasks when you lack energy. It can feel like you're carrying a heavy weight around all of the time. There are many ways we can work with depression based on your needs. We can target the inner critic, look at challenges you face, or just create a space to talk about your experiences. I often work with clients to increase self-compassion.

Depression can be as complex and varied as the people who experience it. Because of this, solutions can also vary. I want to know how depression intrudes on your life: How does it feel? What does it stop you from doing? When did it start? Then I can tell you what research says about effective ways to get through it. And together, we can fit these ways for your situation. More specifically, I integrate the cognitive-behavioural, narrative, and solution-focused methods to co-develop a plan that works for you. I work online across Canada or in-person in Calgary.

Unlike healthy sadness or a "blue mood", depression is not always connected with a particular loss. It can feel as though someone threw a dark, wet, overcoat on top of us and we are unable to move forward or see the good in ourselves or the world around us. Depression is not something you can just snap out of. Fortunately using cognitive behavioral therapy strategies we can focus on identifying and changing your unhealthy beliefs that may be deepening depressive symptoms. Later as your symptoms improve, we can then focus on relapse prevention.

Many mental health issues are caused by experiential avoidance. Those suffering with depression are often avoiding dealing with situations and circumstances in their life that causing the depression. Examples of this could be a bad marriage, an unsatisfying work situation, lack of meaningful goals in life, health issues, etc. In other words they've become immobilized. Using cognitive behavioral therapy approaches, I help clients address negative beliefs and self defeating patterns that have been holding them back from enjoying a meaningful and fulfilling life. The fact is depression is HIGHLY Treatable so don't wait, get the help you need right away. You'll be glad you did.

When we become deeply unhappy or depressed, an avalanche of feelings, thoughts, physical sensations and behaviours come in to play. The huge emotional upheaval that can come from experiencing loss, separation, rejection or defeat, is normal and it is a shared experience by most people. However, if this distress goes on for too long it can start to permeate every aspect of our lives, taking over and dragging us down with it. Depression affects mind, body and spirit. As your therapist, think of me as your lifeline. Through Mindfulness-based strategies along with other evidence-based therapeutic interventions, depression can be overcome and I can help you on that journey back to yourself.

Sadness is not the problem - it is an inherent and unavoidable part of being alive. Rather it is the harshly negative views of ourselves that get switched on by unhappy moods that take hold of us. These moods can turn normal sadness into a web of preoccupation that spiral us into deep feelings of depression. Research has shown that when we are depressed or unhappy the effect of that mood on our body can bias the way we evaluate and interpret things around us without our being even the slightest bit aware that this is happening. It becomes a spiral downwards. It can feel overwhelming and impossible to break out of. Please contact me if you are wanting to take a new approach to your depressive feelings and experience the joy of being able to switch...(view profile to read more)
