Depression is one of the most difficult and painful of all human experiences. It robs us of energy, interest and the will to make things better. Much of the basis for depression lies in one's thinking. We will explore thinking patterns and how they impact your emotions. We will investigate new skills such as solving problems, changing thinking patterns, and reactivating your life. We will also create a plan to prevent future episodes, how to recognize depression episodes early, and how to prevent depression from spiralling deeper.

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.

Depression comes in many forms from situational to all encompassing and familiar. You may be feeling sad, unhappy, irritable, and have a sense of hopelessness. You may be saying things to yourself such as “I’m a failure” and “Just get on with it”. Are you self critical, so much so that you lack enthusiasm, motivation and self-esteem? “What is the point?” Being depressed can lead to withdrawing from others and situations, not doing what needs to get done or substance abuse. Depression could be a natural experience as a result of a devastating life situation. Or it may be familiar to you, going back to early years as a response to uncomfortable and unbearable feelings.

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.

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.

Many people think depression is about not doing enough or being uncommitted to their goals, however, people who struggle with depression are facing the problem of being over-committed to their goals and failing. When I work with clients dealing with depression the goal is to manage goals and expectations and work on creating small changes that build momentum to larger changes.

Depression is a symptom that can be debilitating. The suffering is great and we often do not have the energy to handle life the way we feel we need too. Therapy is an evidence based way to treat depression. The work I do focuses on understanding the root cause of the depression, and working with you to begin allowing yourself to transform and live in a way that in congruent with who you really are.

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.

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.

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 challenging because people often know what they should do to feel better, and the people in their life are probably lecturing them as well... "Go exercise, you'll feel better", "You need to get out of the house!", "Why don't you go spend time with others and meet new people?" etc... The issue with depression is that it robs us of energy to do these things, and more importantly, it plays tricks with our mind about our perceived and actual experiences...making it all seem negative and not enjoyable. Together, we can find a spark of hope to expand on so that you actually WANT to do the things you know you should be doing and so you can feel some enjoyment from them!

While there are many causes and contributors to depression, a common approach to working with it involves challenging negative thinking. Hurtful or damaging stories we tell ourselves tend to lead to feelings of hopelessness and sadness, which in turn, manifest as depression. At least in part, therapy for depression involves exploring the roots of negative thinking whereby its legitimacy is safely challenged. By undermining these hurtful thoughts, we are more inclined to experience preferred emotions, and a more enjoyable outcome. Clients that engage this process tend to find relief from depressive symptoms and live a more fulfilling life with more options available to them.

It is so hard to understand depression. However, once you do understand it, it becomes a highly treatable state. I hope that we will together pinpoint the life problems that contribute to your depression and find which aspects of those problems can be solved or improved. Identify negative or distorted thought patterns you might have, and develop your skills that will help you fight the depression.

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.

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.

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.

Depression is a common problem, but this makes it no less difficult to overcome. It takes a lot of effort and great courage to enter counselling for depression, as you need to muster up the strength and hope to open up to a stranger with such a deep and vulnerable pain. I offer a few approaches to depression, one of which is CBT, a proven therapy that helps people identify certain thought patterns and beliefs, as well as some behaviors that are contributing to their feeling "stuck". These strategies have been proven to be very helpful to clients. Most importantly, I believe that providing a safe environment to explore all that is on your heart and mind, is the best gift I can offer.

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 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.

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!
