The dark clouds of depression can cast a shadow on even the best parts of our lives. When you stop enjoying things you used to, are sad and tearful, when you have problems sleeping or focusing, everything in life can get so much harder. By working with a supportive psychologist who listens, we can develop strategies to take our lives back and restore the joy and happiness.

I accurately diagnose an individual to ascertain whether he/she suffers from Major Depression or from sadness. The treatment plan might be different but the outcome is similar as my goal is to always help the individual resolve the issues that have brought him/her to therapy. The focus is for the client to be able to move on to a healthy, positive and productive way of living.

Depression can become a heavy weight, dragging down our energy and coloring our perception of our entire world. Life can even seem pointless, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Counselling can help provide essential therapeutic support to heal symptoms of depression. I provide an open and honest space in which to express your thoughts and feelings, understand the roots of the depression, learn effective coping skills to manage and heal symptoms, and regain feelings of hope and pleasure in living.

Depression is often a teacher that we haven't connected with our feelings and grieved for the loss of someone or something in our life. An example of a loss could be loss of our youth, what could have been, a dream, a part of ourselves or we are denying part of ourselves. The pain of depression causes us to slow down even though we may not want to but it also clouds our reasoning and often we feel hopeless and sometimes suicidal. In therapy we find a safe space to connect with our pain and find a way to accept the circumstances of our lives even though they may not be what we want them to be. Recovery from depression often becomes the start of a more meaningful and congruent life.

Based on clinical research, spending time with animals can help lessen the symptoms of depression-- particularly when combined with counselling. Relationships formed with horses can illustrate to clients the impact that depression is having in their life and relationships. This can both motivate the client to move towards healing and also provide the safety needed to better understand the challenges they are facing and to make movement toward change.

Sometimes we find ourselves stuck, with little to no motivation. We might also blame ourselves or others for how we got here. As a psychologist my role isn't to change you, rather it is to help you gain a greater understanding of what is going on. However, this isn't a stopping point. Through greater understanding we might also increase our compassion for ourselves. By giving ourselves some grace and working through the stress and challenges of our lives often we find that motivation to move forward and continue to grow and thrive!

I help clients to challenge problematic thoughts, capitalize on positive coping skills, and teach new ways of coping in order to help them manage feelings of despair, hopelessness, and helplessness. Together, we develop a plan for how to combat fatigue, problems with appetite and sleep, low motivation, a negative focus, and suicidal ideations. I support my clients in implementing, evaluating, and adjusting these plans as they work their way through depressive episodes. Additionally, creating a plan for relapse is essential for long-term success.

Understanding depression means knowing it is more than just "being sad". It can mean feeling less motivated, more tired, more angry or irritable, less interest in things that used to be enjoyable, feeling isolated and lonely, or just wanting it all to be over. The good news is that once we understand what depression means for you, II can work with you through one of several evidence-based therapies that have been shown to significantly reduce these symptoms and return your ability to live a fuller life.

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.

In working with clients who are experiencing depression I tend to avoid recommending medication (except when necessary). For clients who are currently on medication, many come looking to work towards healthy functioning without medication. One of the most difficult parts about healing from depression is how difficult it can be to feel motivated to take action to care for yourself. I understand that, and I won't push you to do anything you aren't ready for. Making an appointment and attending the session is one of the most difficult steps. When you make it in, we will be able to develop an understanding of the underlying issues that lead to your depression and a plan to overcome it.

Many people believe that in order to be "strong," they need to bury their feelings and keep them hidden from others. Over time, this can backfire, as feelings can build and take over, leaving a person feeling down and depressed, or overwhelmed. I work with clients not only to work through feelings of anger, resentment, hurt, and sadness that have built up, but to develop new habits of self-care, assertiveness, boundaries, healthy expression of feelings, communication, and stress management so that this does not occur again in the future. By doing this, they can become a more well-rounded person, who feels free to express feelings as they arise, and no longer carries them with them.

My extensive work with depression will help you explore and discover the roots of depression in your life, why it continues, and how to reduce and manage depression. I work with clients to map out a customized Depression Management strategy designed to: Identify their depression cycle, The effects of depression in their lives, Zone in on key depression triggers, and Personalize strategies to interrupt their depression cycle. Since each person's learning and change process differs, I integrate various resources, tools, reading materials, and screening kits -- depending on the preferences of my clients. Depression takes a collaborative, supportive, and ongoing partnership to combat it.

The main approach for depression is cognitive. Firstly always I empathize and listen carefully to what is happening with the client and how they are coping. The main strategy is to explain the process of cognition, emotions and behavior. I give written homework to help the client change unrealistic and negitive thoughts into positive thinking, which then in turn changes their emotion and behavior.

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.

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.

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.

Depression is a state that is usually warranted as a result of the situation that we come across. If we allow ourselves to experience and explore our depressive states, our natural tendency is to move out of this state. My approach to working with depression is not to make clients feel better immediately, but it is to sit in the depressed place with them so we can explore why they are there. Once its explored, experienced, and understood, only then can we move ourselves to health.

Being depressed can often make you feel helpless. You're not -there's a lot you can do to fight back. Most people feel sad or depressed at times and those feelings are a normal reaction to loss or life's struggles...but when intense feelings of being sad, helpless, hopeless, and worthless last for many days to weeks or months, it may be something more than sadness. Be kind to yourself - reach out and I will help you find an approach that will work for you.
