Depression can be a lonely, disheartening, hopeless state that ultimatley has a negative impact on your life. The good news is that you can release yourself from the grips of depression by changing underlying beliefs that are limiting and holding you back from living life to the fullest. I provide cognitive and experiential tools to help alleviate depression and create a life with meaning and fulfillment. In my practice I teach self-hypnosis, Emotional Freedom Technique and provide other tools to alter limiting beliefs, increase energy and vitality, and provide a renewed sense of hope and possibility in life.

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.

Depression results from a chemical imbalance in the brain. It is not the result of a personal weakness or lack of coping skills. The impairment is real and can result in feeling sad, anxious, overwhelmed and in some cases suicidal. Fortunately, depression can be treated with both medication and counseling; the combination usually being most effective. Counselling can help persons who experience depression in providing an outlet for voicing frustrations and obstacles, identifying support avenues, leaning new coping skills and exploring the most recent avenues of treatment. Counselling offers a non-judgemental and confidential sounding board.

There is a lot of discussion about "overcoming" or "ending" depression but what if these symptoms are actually warning signs that are designed to tell us that something in your life needs to change? Understanding these signs better can help people to move toward living a life that feels more meaningful rather than continuing to avoid or ignore the difficult thoughts and feelings that reinforce depression.

Depression can be deeply painful, robbing you of energy, motivation, and hope. It creates a negative view of life, your self, and your future. It typically disrupts sleep patterns, appetite, emotions, and your thinking ability. I use the clinical practice of cognitive behavioural therapy to help people regain healthy control over their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and reclaim a sense of influence over their life style and life situation's. Coaching you to refocus, set small daily goals, celebrate your successes, and learn new behavioral and thinking skills can take time but the good news is that once you have acquired these skills you have them for life.

Life's struggles, setbacks, and disappointments bring sadness to our lives which is normal. When the sadness engulfs your day and brings feelings of helplessness, hopelessness and worthlessness, it iss time that you need to seek help. Therapy, life style changes, and practical skills and techniques on how to reframe negative thinking and understanding your triggers will assist you in getting healthy. Understanding the underlying cause of the depression will help you to solve the problem. If depression is the answer, what are the components causing the outcome.
