People who are depressed often do not have the energy or motivation to do the very things that will improve their situation. I can explain what is going on to you in a simple manner and help you to take the steps necessary to deal with it. Facing depression means not only managing the symptoms but also identifying and reducing the stress that has complicated your life. I have worked with hundreds of individuals who have been diagnosed with depression and, as a clinical psychologist, know how to help you problem-solve.

Clients struggling with depression have shared with me that my approach and the strategies that they used in their journey were exceptionally helpful to reaching their goals. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique and EMDR as the core strategies when working with depression. It is important to develop your own voice, to tell your story. Studies have shown that the key to successful therapy is the therapeutic relationship which means the development of mutual trust and respect between the client and therapist.

How one person experiences depression can be very different from someone else. There can be associated physical symptoms, such as pain, sleeping and eating increases or decreases, thoughts of suicide, and a sense of hopelessness. Usually friends and family members will only listen to a certain point, and may stop listening or even distance themselves from you when you continue to feel down and things don’t seem to get better. There can be moments when you feel like you should feel happy, but simply cannot. I offer clients the chance to fully explore their feelings of depression, looking at potential underlying causes, lessening extreme feelings, and finding new ways of living, fulfilled.

Its true - the commercial is right - depression hurts everywhere. Whether you are dealing with severe depression or just feeling down, therapy can help to cope or help eliminate the symptoms and hurt. Therapy is different for every person, however, often focuses on self care and feeling better about yourself - eliminating the "not good enough" feeling. One of the tools I use is cognitive behavioral therapy.

Through a strength-based, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) approach, I provide counselling support to clients struggling to overcome or manage symptoms of depression. I provide Animal Assisted Therapy as a modality to assist clients through connection with horses and exposure in nature. By spending time with the horses and in nature, clients begin to feel increases of motivation and decreases of depression symptoms.

We are in a constant process of development and growth. As we grow we experience changes in our moods and behaviour. Some of these changes are normal and predictable, but others can interfere with our needs and goals. Working as a partner with you, my client, I offer a safe, therapeutic space to bring opportunities for discussion that are candid and therapeutically effective.
