I use a CBT approach with depression and also utilize EMDR as a potential option to use. I gather a full history, help look at negative automatic thoughts and core beliefs that may have developed over time, and then work with develop more adaptive beliefs for individuals. I work with individuals to meet them where they are at and work together towards change. I like also using some tools from Acceptance and Commitment therapy. Clients may find that they are able to identify some areas of strength and feel like the adaptive beliefs can be more believable. My hope is that individuals can feel like they have the tools to effectively manage depression.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.
