Unlike sadness, which is a typical reaction to loss, disappointment or difficult problems that we may face in life, depression is more profound. Depression affects not only your mood, but the way that you view yourself and your life. It can affect the way you relate to those around you and how you engage in your life experience. Depression can lead you to feel helpless, but there is hope. A counsellor can walk alongside you through this difficult experience and help you to find your way back to health and wellness. Reach out today to get the support you need on your path towards healing.

Periodic sadness is considered normal, however, if the sadness leads to depression over time, this becomes a call for assessment and intervention by your physician. Your physician may prescribe medication and because it is known that therapy combined with medication is superior to medication alone, the physician may request that you engage in therapy to assist your recovery. We provide talk, cognitive, behaviour, interpersonal and counselling therapies to compliment your recovery. We provide a safe and non-judgemental environment with the emotional support your require to understand your depression and enable you to embrace a new freedom in your life.

If you are feeling down, blue, hopeless, and are not enjoying doing any of the things you used to enjoy or often find you're just too tired to do anything, OR IF YOU FEEL LIFE IS JUST NOT WORTH LIVING, it is time to get some help from a counsellor. This sadness can lead to more complicated concerns such as clinical depression if you don't get some help. It is especially important to note that in TEENAGERS OR ADOLESCENTS these symptoms often go unrecognized because it appears to others as general teenager "moodiness and irritability". Please contact me if you or someone close to you has these symptoms. I use Cognitive Therapy as a successful tool to help with your feeling of sadness.

Depression can be an overwhelming sense of sadness and hopelessness. It can also come with or without a clinical diagnosis. Through therapy we will begin to explore the sadness and what it means in the context of your life. We will explore the unique rules of sadness and depression and exceptions to sadness and depression. We will utilize interventions from Response-Based Practice, Narrative Therapy, and Solution-Focused Therapy.

I believe it is important to separate the problem of depression from the person. Depression can feel all-encompassing and it becomes easy to forget that is something that you are struggling with and not who you are. There may be many influences on why the depression exists and I believe it is important to look at the context of one's life. The person is not the problem, the problem is the problem.

When one is depressed the range of thoughts and feelings encompass a wide spectrum. Sadness and despair might be pervasive. One can feel as if they have fallen into a deep dark pit where everything is covered in negativity and hopelessness. In this state, one can feel inadequate, discouraged, unable or unwilling to make decisions. In addition, guilt, shame, profound low self-esteem and loss of interest in relationships, sex, career and even life itself are commonly found. A variety of evidence-based tools, specific to the needs of the individual, applied skillfully at the right time, can dramatically lift one out of that deep, dark pit and help avoid relapse.
