Depression can be as complex and varied as the people who experience it. Because of this, solutions can also vary. I want to know how depression intrudes on your life: How does it feel? What does it stop you from doing? When did it start? Then I can tell you what research says about effective ways to get through it. And together, we can fit these ways for your situation. More specifically, I integrate the cognitive-behavioural, narrative, and solution-focused methods to co-develop a plan that works for you. I work online across Canada or in-person in Calgary.

Feelings of sadness are a normal part of life, but if these feelings become intense or don't pass then you may be depressed. If you experience changes in diet, sleep patterns, activities, and motivation, then I can help. The method that I use in the treatment of depression is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I teach clients how to challenge negative core beliefs and thought patterns, and how to use various methods to alter patterns of behaviour. By exploring the environment, physical self, thoughts, and behaviours, the negative effects on mood can be determined and changed for a more positive outcome.

The word "depression" has become widespread and has come to mean very different things to many different people. Generally it entails deep sadness, lack of energy, motivation and interest in things, and sometimes it is described simply as a big, black cloud hanging over one's head all day long. Whatever the individual experience of it, depression requires learning ways to manage it to make it feel less overwhelming, as well as exploration to gain an understanding of what may be contributing to it. These endeavours are done through ways that fit with your needs and the essence of who you are.

Unlike healthy sadness or a "blue mood", depression is not always connected with a particular loss. It can feel as though someone threw a dark, wet, overcoat on top of us and we are unable to move forward or see the good in ourselves or the world around us. Depression is not something you can just snap out of. Fortunately using cognitive behavioral therapy strategies we can focus on identifying and changing your unhealthy beliefs that may be deepening depressive symptoms. Later as your symptoms improve, we can then focus on relapse prevention.

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.

Only one in three people struggling with major depression gets the treatment they need – do not be part of the statistics of those who are not treated. Dr Mervin (Paraklesis Counselling) can help you decide on the correct pharmacological intervention that is right for you, and come alongside you in suggesting the best evidence-based therapeutic approach. If you are yo-yoing on and off antidepressants and tranquilizers, you are probably reducing your chances of recovery by doing damage to your brain. By the fifth or sixth major depressive episode, your recovery chances have been compromised and the relapse rate has gone up – effective treatment is available now!

Depression can be all-consuming and life can seem overwhelming, difficult and hopeless at times. Despite the feeling of hopelessness, there is a reason to hope. Depression is manageable and something my clients can and do overcome. Because depression is unique to each person, I tailor my counselling style and approach to what works best for you. I also offer hypnotherapy because of the success it has in treating depression. Part of this process will involve being open to changing unhelpful patterns and behaviours. With your willingness and my guidance and support, you can identify what contributes to your depression, how to catch yourself from regressing and identify how to maintain progress

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.

Depression is an often misunderstood mental health condition that impacts the lives of people from every walk of life. While we know that depression can be improved through the use of medication alone or therapy alone the very best results often include a combination of psychotherapy and medication. When medication is not for you then therapy can be an effective way to treat the cognitive and emotional impact of this condition. My approach is to work on the thinking that allows depression to have a powerful impact on your life.

When we become deeply unhappy or depressed, an avalanche of feelings, thoughts, physical sensations and behaviours come in to play. The huge emotional upheaval that can come from experiencing loss, separation, rejection or defeat, is normal and it is a shared experience by most people. However, if this distress goes on for too long it can start to permeate every aspect of our lives, taking over and dragging us down with it. Depression affects mind, body and spirit. As your therapist, think of me as your lifeline. Through Mindfulness-based strategies along with other evidence-based therapeutic interventions, depression can be overcome and I can help you on that journey back to yourself.
