Life has a habit of throwing us off balance which can be quite disturbing and disruptive to our lives. I work with my clients to help develop more positive focus in their lives and build skills that lead to more positive experiences and happier outcomes. By building on past success in their lives, we are able to create new solutions to problems and recognize what attributes the client already has to conquer their problems.

Depression is something that can arise at any moment in time due to a certain event in someones life. Someone with depression may feel lost, hopeless or down at times. Depression is treatable and after the clients seek treatment they will experience increased energy, feel more "positive" about life and have relief from emotional suffering. Treatment will help the person find hope and regain control of their life.

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.

Depression is the common cold of psychology. Like anxiety and stress, depression is quite commonly reported by consumers of psychotherapy. I am experienced, comfortable, and patient with treating depression. I am neither strongly opposed nor strongly supportive of pharmacotherapeutics. I engage an approach that is personal-growth-centered and as independent of the medical model as is possible.

Depression is defined in many different ways. My approach sees depression as a social phenomenon, first and foremost. People who suffer from it usually tend to blame themselves for how they view the world, or for how they feel about themselves. In my view, in doing so they are missing the big picture. They are failing to see that our society increasingly creates the conditions for isolation, dissatisfaction, emotional instability. Working on our desires, working on what is socially acceptable, discussing the contradictions that we experience every day are often key to find a way out, to perceive our pain within the most appropriate frame.

Depression is a whole body experience. I support clients in making change through creating a holistic plan. By exploring the thoughts, feelings and physical aspects of the depression that is experienced, we look for the most effective place to intervene. I rely heavily on cognitive behavioural therapy, hypnosis, mindfulness, gentle movement, and narrative therapy techniques to support change.

We can be depressed for a variety of reasons - disappointment, bereavement, rejection. Ultimately depression requires identification of the cause. If you are dealing with loss and life change counselling is often sufficent. If you are burned out from work or being a caregiver then counselling and self care are both important. If you suffer from longterm depression then there can be a three-fold treatment of selfcare, counselling and medication that can be helpful. Not all depression requires medical intervention but for maybe people it is a helpful part of recovering hope.

Often prolonged depression or depression that is resistant to medication is not as much a clinical depression as it is a reaction to a series of environmental or interpersonal situations that leave us feeling chronically helpless with low self-worth. This is especially true when the situations happen during childhood. Moving beyond the helplessness often requires medication but more importantly, an opportunity to understand and process those negative situations. Making sense of what we are feeling helps us to put our experiences in perspective, process and release the lingering emotions related to those experiences, and move on towards a happy and productive life.

Depression can feel like overwhelming sadness, or maybe like you are in a "funk" that you can not get out of. People often start to isolate themselves, and focus on negative thoughts. I offer a warm, safe place to share your feelings, examine your relationships and perceptions that may be contributing to your depression. I introduce concrete suggestions that will help you get your back on track. People frequently feel a sense of relief after sharing their burdens. In discussing experiences people are often able to view themselves differently and gain insight into how they can more effectively deal with situations and relationships.

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.

My approach to depression is combined with the help of a Doctor and /or Psychiatrist. I feel as though using medication with psychotherapy is the best remedy available for those suffering from depression. Many of my sessions will focus on removal of past thoughts and ruminations of the past situation. I also use other forms of therapy such as Emotional Freedom Technique and parts of DBT.

Research has clearly demonstrated that mindfulness-based approaches to depression are so powerful that they can reduce the chances of having a relapse by 50%! That's a big deal. A depressed mind is busy creating all kinds of negative thoughts. Mindfulness-based therapy will teach you a new way to relate to your thoughts. You don't have to believe everything you think! Especially the bad stuff, becuse it's often not true.
