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 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.

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.

Depending is often the result of negative thoughts and beliefs about yourself and your life. One gets trapped in a downward spiral that drains the life force out of you. Past experiences and actions may continue to haunt you. The beliefs about oneself can be difficult to fight. My approach is not to cheer lead you to fight them and be strong but to go deeper and challenge the very truth of what you are believing about yourself. Accepting ones weakness and vulnerability without being controlled by them can be hard but it is ultimately the way up to a more integrated and fulfilling life.

Depression is not feeling bad – it is not feeling. When we become depressed we try to insulate ourselves from our emotions. Treatment for depression requires a willingness to feel what we are avoiding. This requires a process of exploring the buried feelings in a safe, supportive environment. As we become friends with our emotions we can gradually come back to life.

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.

Johnny was referred by his doctor and his frustrated parents because he was sad and distressed for prolonged periods of time. He had frequent absences and poor grades. He would have angry outbursts and crying episodes. He struggled making friends, would end up in fights and was often in trouble with his teachers. I met with Johnny’s parents, visited his school and observed him in class. I met with him in my playroom and used non-directive play to show I was listening and I cared. Eventually, he opened up and began to talk about his sad feelings behind the anger. He learned how to identify problems and found tools for dealing with them.
