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.

Depression is a very common experience, whether it refers to how you are experiencing your life right now or to a clinical diagnosis. Fortunately, it is also very treatable, most often through talk therapy or counselling, although some people will also benefit from medication. I am very experienced in working with depression and anxiety, combining various approaches, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, and Interpersonal Therapy, to help you better understand and deal with feelings of being overwhelmed by life right now. You will be able to regain enjoyment and energy in your life and relationships and develop new perspectives and personal resources

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.

"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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I approach depression differently from many other therapists. Instead of struggling to fight against the depressing thoughts and feelings, I encourage clients to explore their depression. People develop tools and strategies to get unstuck from their paralyzing thoughts and feelings. They will learn how to change their behaviour based on what is most important to them rather than continuing to be held captive by their depression. This values-driven approach can guide behaviour change long-term.

Depression can feel like a tide sucking us down no matter how hard we try and escape it. There are many ways of working with depression, depending on how and what your experience is. I am well trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) which is therapy based on linking feelings to thoughts and actively trying to change the negative thoughts. I also provide Narrative Therapy, which works to separate the “problem” (in this case depression) from the person (in this case – you). By looking at depression as separate from you, we are better able to look at it objectively and envision a time where depression does not exist in your life and work towards it by actively working against it.

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.).

I believe depression can be treated through carefully examining beliefs we have about ourselves that no longer serve us. For example, if we learned at a young age that we were unloveable, we may have looked for ways throughout our life to prove that as truth When we start to identify self defeating beliefs and challenge them it's remarkable the changes we can experience in our overall depressive symptoms and overall sense of well being.
