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.

People today choose to do counselling for a variety of reasons. Think about what you are struggling with in the moment; it may be depression, anxiety, or it may be something like wanting to change jobs, finding motivation, or building confidence. Therapy is for everyone and it is empowering. You may not think so, but seeking the guidance of a professional counsellor or psychotherapist to overcome your concerns is an indicator of individual courage. In a warm, supportive and non-judgmental environment, you will gain new skills to cope with your challenges. The process of therapy can help shift your perception and change unhelpful patterns of behaviour into meaning growth and empowerment.

Feeling blue, down in the dumps, overwhelmed, pessimistic, these heavy sensations are most often part of the challenges of everyday living. But when these kinds of feelings persist, or take over one's emotional life, you may be experiencing symptoms of depression. I will be interested in learning about your mood, your sleep patterns, your ability to concentrate, even some of your most negative thoughts. If depression is clearly present, we will explore strategies around getting to the bottom of your concerns or symptoms, whether a medical intervention is needed such as medication from your doctor, or some deep talking and re-thinking circumstances would make a positive difference.

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.

"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).

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.
