Dr. Val used to facilitate groups of those who had engaged in family violence, both men and women. Up front, number one is caring acceptance of the perpetrator, regardless of what he/she has done. A non-judgmental attitude is engendered based on Val's understanding that we are all children of God, and that we've all got a negative and a positive side, and those two sides are in constant battle. Helping people recognize their physiological signs of anger and curbing them before the explosion, is an important part of Dr. Val's training. Learning emotional regulation is a cornerstone of her approach.

Counselling for depression can help you in many ways: • offer support • problem solving • recognize and change your thinking and behavior • get your emotional needs met • relate to others • improve skills such as communication, boundaries and assertiveness • increase your self-esteem • deal with guilt and a sense of failure • treat the causes, not only symptoms • get you back into living your life • avoid recurrence. I use physical, emotional, cognitive, interpersonal and spiritual methods to treat depression. I have a special interest and expertise in working with pregnancy and postpartum depression that preserves the well-being of both mom and baby and the whole family.

When you are feeling depressed, down, and low, it can feel like a rather dark, hopeless, meaningless, lonely, and stuck place. Life presents many challenges and also many opportunities. Counselling and therapy can offer you some support as you reconnect with yourself, with those you care about, and with what adds meaning and purpose to your life.

I believe that a client's experience of depression is typically a symptom of a whole range of things going on in their life. In my work with clients I like to look at the whole person and work together to understand what is contributing to them feeling unwell. By doing this, we are able to determine what needs to be addressed first (ie. work stress, relationship challenges etc.).

Depression can be difficult and debilitating. Some days we don't even feel motivated to get out of bed. With clients struggling with depression I begin by helping them with the difficult symptoms that they are struggling with so that they can begin to resume their daily lives. In order to ensure that depression is not chronic or does not return the root of it must be discovered. When the root is uncovered and worked through depression no longer needs to be a part of someone's life.

The word "depression" has become widespread and has come to mean very different things to many different people. Generally it entails deep sadness, lack of energy, motivation and interest in things, and sometimes it is described simply as a big, black cloud hanging over one's head all day long. Whatever the individual experience of it, depression requires learning ways to manage it to make it feel less overwhelming, as well as exploration to gain an understanding of what may be contributing to it. These endeavours are done through ways that fit with your needs and the essence of who you are.

Depression is a serious mental disorder that affects every area of a person's life. It is a regular mode of operation for those who have it, unlike the occasional sadness that everyone experiences from time to time. Depression might be mild, characterized by low energy and a lack of interest, or it might be severe, characterized by violent mood swings and a desire to give up on life. Left untreated, the person suffering depression might contemplate harming themselves. Depression is frequently linked to substance abuse, as it effects the same area of the brain, and sufferers of depression often try to self medicate with drugs or alcohol. At Valiant Recovery, we treat the dual diagnosis of depression and substance abuse in order to care for the whole person.

Challenging life experiences and the impact of daily stressors can leave you feeling numb, disconnected from yourself and others, disengaged from daily activities, and may leave you experiencing a sense of loss in your life. Experiences of depression can manifest in the body, heart, and brain in many ways. I can work with you to explore your thoughts, feelings, and somatic experiences, as they relate to depression. In counselling, you may learn new ways to cope, re-claim feelings of hope, re-connect with yourself and others, and/or find new ways to engage with life in a more authentic and meaningful way.

You will be treated in a respectful manner. Often depression has many natural causes which can be successfully changed. Looking at painful feelings and unresolved difficulties are a few of the areas that are addressed to lead to change. After addressing these issues people often state that they feel less or none of the depression they previously experienced. Some people (who choose to use anti-depressant medication) will no longer need their anti-depressant medication. Others will be able to reduce their medication.

"Depression" in today's society encompasses a very broad range of experiences - everything from a prolonged sadness to feeling such despair that life no longer feels worth living. It not only affects your mood but can also impact one's physical health, relationships and work. I accompany those struggling with depression to access their natural ability to re-wire their brain towards greater health. Since each person I work with is unique, I tailor my approach to each individual depending on the root cause. This may include things such as: processing past events with EMDR or managing current stressors with mindfulness practices or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
