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.

Depression is often seen as a disorder of the person. Although there is certainly a biological component to depression, I work with individuals to reflect on how their depression can also be a response to their lived experiences. The more we understand the many components of how we are feeling and experiencing the world, the more empowered people struggling with depressive symptoms feel.

Both youth and adults can struggle with low mood or depression at different times in their lives. Sometimes it is situational, and sometimes, it just happens, for what seems like no reason at all. Coping with this is hard, and for people who experience post-concussion it can be especially difficult and impact all areas of life. Using a CBT/DBT approach to understanding these patterns that can lead to unhealthy coping patterns, I will help to develop new coping skills and patterns of joy in your life.

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.

Depression can be experienced in a magnitude of ways and is often experienced differently by each individual. Symptoms may range from feeling increasingly irritable, experiencing a sense of emptiness and hopelessness, and an individual often will feel completely overwhelmed, losing interest in activities they once enjoyed. Depression may also be experienced physically. Physical symptoms may include, but are not limited to a lack of energy, problems sleeping, pronounced weight changes, and eventually, even serious illness. In cases of mild to moderate depression, there is an increasing amount of research supporting counselling as effective as medication in improving a person’s mood. Many clients have been referred to counselling by their family doctor when...(view profile to read more)

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 a debilitating mental health issue, but the good news is there are excellent therapies out there designed to help treat it! Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) has been shown to be one of the most effective treatments in helping with depression. CBT is a shorter term and skills-based therapy intended to help individuals learn strategies to better manage their mood and improve the quality of their life.
