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.

I approach depression differently from many other therapists. Instead of struggling to fight against the depressing thoughts and feelings, I encourage clients to explore their depression. People develop tools and strategies to get unstuck from their paralyzing thoughts and feelings. They will learn how to change their behaviour based on what is most important to them rather than continuing to be held captive by their depression. This values-driven approach can guide behaviour change long-term.

Counselling for depression can help you in many ways: • offer support • problem solving • recognize and change your thinking and behavior • get your emotional needs met • relate to others • improve skills such as communication, boundaries and assertiveness • increase your self-esteem • deal with guilt and a sense of failure • treat the causes, not only symptoms • get you back into living your life • avoid recurrence.

Everyone feels “down”, gloomy, discouraged, or sad from time to time. For some people, however, this “low” or depressed mood persists. When symptoms last for two weeks or more, and are so severe that they interfere with daily functioning, it is called depression. While clinical depression usually occurs in adulthood, it can also affect children, adolescents, and seniors, but it is more difficult to recognize in these groups. Factors such as low self-esteem and self-defeating or distorted thinking styles are connected with depression, otherwise known as a mood disorder. Events or circumstances in early childhood may also increase the likelihood of depression in adulthood. There is good new....

Depression is the most common mood disorder in the world. But it is also one of the most treatable. There have been well over 100,000 clinical studies on depression, so a lot has been learned, and it has become clear what the best treatment approaches are. Unfortunately, only one in four depressed people will seek psychological services. This is truly sad since cognitive, behavioral, and interpersonal psychology can make a lasting difference in breaking your unique pattern of depression. Why not get started today on a brighter future?

What do you think 'depression' is? A symptom or a diagnosis? Many clients I meet have struggled to believe that change was possible. Depression can fade the colors in life and bring us into a state of hopelessness. Its tough to get motivated and believe again. Kathryn can empower you again to take your life back, ignite the flame that may seem to have been snuffed out. She will support you to set goals that YOU are comfortable with, and she will encourage you each week to measure your success based on YOUR progress.

In both research and in my practice I know Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is the number one form of treatment for depression; I am advanced certified in CBT and offer a unique online CBT program to support you in your journey to discover how to shift out of and stay out of depressive episodes with a non judgemental and supportive approach. We start with understanding where you are at and what needs to feel better first. Then we work backwards to make sense of what contributed to the episode and what will help you not have it repeat.

"Depression" in today's society encompasses a very broad range of experiences - everything from a prolonged sadness to feeling such despair that life no longer feels worth living. It not only affects your mood but can also impact one's physical health, relationships and work. I accompany those struggling with depression to access their natural ability to re-wire their brain towards greater health. Since each person I work with is unique, I tailor my approach to each individual depending on the root cause. This may include things such as: processing past events with EMDR or managing current stressors with mindfulness practices or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

Difficult emotions are part of life, and can provide us with valuable information if we are able to tolerate them. They can tell us what's important, when something is wrong, and can guide our actions to see that our needs are met in the present, and help us overcome similar situations in the future. Unfortunately, that message becomes lost when we are depressed, replaced with a tendency to blame ourselves for the distress we feel, often leading to self-reciprocating negative spiral that can feel hopeless. You can overcome this, and, with training in CBT, emotion focused therapy, and with strong emphasis on cultivating a safe, my compassionate therapeutic atmosphere, perhaps I can help.

Is there a difference between sadness and depression? Yes, absolutely - but what does it matter when we are feeling either one? Although building our knowledge of emotions and our need of them to support these times of sadness and depression can begin to help, it is more so the quality of care and discussions we have that will lead to lasting change. Supported by helpful tools and practical applications you can often begin to see the 'light at the end of the tunnel'.

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.

I believe in an approach to helping that starts from building on the strengths of the client; using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused, and Problem Solving pragmatic approaches to help the client learn new strategies to initially cope and then delve into changing the way they think about themselves and their world. Breaking and changing ineffective and damaging thinking patterns and replacing them with more effective and sound habits and patterns is the groundwork for change. I also believe that using an existential approach that takes into account searching for and creating meaning is crucial to building success and growing out of depression.

Feeling sad or down from time to time is normal and typically short-lived. Longer periods of sadness may occur with grief or loss of a loved one -- also very normal. It's unrealistic to imagine we should feel happy all the time. But, sometimes, the normal and transient experience of healthy sadness become long-lasting and persistent sadnessor depression that settles in to stay and interferes with day-to-day life. Whenyou're depressed, you can't just 'snap out of it'. You might feel anxious, pessimistic, guilty, hopeless, helpless, worthless, irritable. Depression affects sleep, appetite, sex, and energy. But depression is treatable. I can help you turn the tide of your depression.

Dr. Val used to facilitate groups of those who had engaged in family violence, both men and women. Up front, number one is caring acceptance of the perpetrator, regardless of what he/she has done. A non-judgmental attitude is engendered based on Val's understanding that we are all children of God, and that we've all got a negative and a positive side, and those two sides are in constant battle. Helping people recognize their physiological signs of anger and curbing them before the explosion, is an important part of Dr. Val's training. Learning emotional regulation is a cornerstone of her approach.
