As the evidence shows us, the use of CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), is an effective and empowering method to relieve and manage the symptoms of depression. So I borrow heavily from this body of work when working with depression or other mood disorders. What I like about this theory, is that encourages clients to take control of their own mood and situation, in a world where increasingly we seem to be looking to drugs, or things outside ourselves to control these things. I am not opposed to the use of anti-depressants in some situations, as they can sometimes serve to gain traction or momentum in counselling. However, CBT tools are good armour for the battle of life.

There are many benefits of depression counselling. For example, I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy sometimes to help individuals identify and manage the various factors that contribute to their depression. I also may use this type of therapy to teach some effective coping strategies that may help alleviate the often distressful symptoms. If your showing symptoms, we can help.

Depression can be devastating. A rich, full and meaningful life- this is what we want for you. What is going on? How are you thinking? How are you feeling? These are questions that we may start with in a psychotherapy session together. Our approach to psychotherapy is person centered: we determine together which approach or approaches may be best, such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). We also bring in some expressive arts activities to help explicate/integrate these processes. Using ONLINE tools like video conferencing, email and text supports, we will support you wherever you are on your journey.

Let go of the painful emotions that cause depression. Using rapid release techniques, this process does not have to take long. Life can be difficult and overwhelming. We try to cope by pushing away our feelings and forging ahead. This can work temporarily, but when we don't allow ourselves to release our emotion, it can build up. We may find ourselves overwhelmed and notice our happiness disappearing. I believe that underneath all of our suppressed emotions our sense of well-being is still in tact. Letting go of the build up of emotion can ease the burden and allow the inner happiness to resurface. Your happiness is waiting...

We all feel depressed from time to time. It's part of being human and a common experience we share. However living with depression day in and day out, feeling like we can no longer cope, wondering how we can even survive (or if we even want to) is certainly not! It is actually a way your body tells you that some part of you, the inner you, is in overload, and you need to seek some help. I can not only help you find just what it is that is weighing you down and stealing your joy, but also to loose it's hold on you so that little by little, you can be freed to not only survive, but actually thrive again. If you're looking for light at the end of your very dark tunnel, please contact me.

Most people experience depression at some time in their life, and often they are able to resolve it on their own. When depression starts to affect one’s life in a number of ways, then therapy can often help. Depression can slowly overcome people, having them feel overwhelmed, stressed, angry or anxious, causing them to withdraw into themselves. This can impact them in every facet of their lives, from physically and emotionally, to socially and financially. Therapy can not only help a client start to reverse their negative feelings, it can also help prevent depression in the future. Our approach is cognitive behavioural therapy, which is proven to be quite affective with depression.

Depression issues can both result from distress in relationships and precipitate distress. Support in addressing depression issues can have a signifiacant positive impact on overall relationship functioning. The fact that relationships are one of our primary coping mechanisms multiplies the potential distress when depression is present as it impacts the very mechanisms we use to cope.

I always first check to see if you have visited a physician to rule out thyroid or similar sources of depression. If depression results from circumstances, I use EMDR to desensitize these memories or experiences. I also use cognitive/behavioral therapy: Changing your thoughts changes your feelings which changes your behaviours. This also works in the reverse.
