We can be depressed for a variety of reasons - disappointment, bereavement, rejection. Ultimately depression requires identification of the cause. If you are dealing with loss and life change counselling is often sufficent. If you are burned out from work or being a caregiver then counselling and self care are both important. If you suffer from longterm depression then there can be a three-fold treatment of selfcare, counselling and medication that can be helpful. Not all depression requires medical intervention but for maybe people it is a helpful part of recovering hope.

Depression is on the rise in not only Canada but around the world. There a variety of reasons why this is - I have come to believe its the rise of a society that is busy and not taking care of themselves emotionally and physically. We are focused on the future and not enough on the present. Counselling allows a person to slow down and be in the present. People can then receive care and support as they walk through their feelings, thoughts and stories of their life.

The journey beyond depression is unique to each individual and the path often involves several different strategies, as well as perseverance to succeed. Psychotherapy can help provide the motivation and tools to overcome depressive thoughts, change detrimental patterns of relating to others, and ultimately safeguard against future depressive episodes.

During the pandemic, I received training from Michael Yapko on the treatment of depression. His key therapeutic messages were: 1) You can develop the skills to cope. 2) The past does not predict the future. 3) You are more than your history. 4) You are more than your symptoms. 5) You have more resources than you realize and you can learn to use them effectively. I ultimately utilize these therapeutic approaches with depression. I can help change language from "I can't" to "I can," while also looking forward to the future with a strengths-based approach.

Depression can come in many forms, for example, like post-partum depression, major depression, and seasonal depression. Feelings of depression are more than just feeling down or sad, the condition affects both a person’s mind and physical abilities, causing feelings of despair, hopelessness, or even the feeling of being “numb” to life. Together we will get to the root of your issues and determine the best treatment for your individual situation. This can include support in finding ways to make life more manageable, and developing tools to cope with challenging situations.
