Feeling sad, low or in a bad mood is a normal part of being human. Depression is different; it can hold us back from our lives, suck our energy, and have us thinking negatively about ourselves and the world. And, depression is treatable. My job is to create the support you need to clarify the issues and situations that trigger depression, so that you can identify and act on strategies to interrupt the dark times, to move forward, and be proactive in the future. While it's not always possible to pinpoint the cause, we can work effectively with what we do know: about thoughts, emotions and actions that can either hold us back or be allies.

The debilitating effects of depression can take a toll on personal or professional relationships, activities and responsibilities that you were once able to accomplish. If your low mood is a pervasively negative factor in your life then finding relief from the symptoms may feel difficult. Here are a few examples of how depression may be manifesting itself in your life. 1)You have lost interest in things you once found pleasurable, 2)You notice increased irritability, sadness, hopelessness or restlessness, 3)You have trouble sleeping and/or find it difficult to wake. Together we will wade through the fog and look for ways to cope and move forward.

Being able to talk about our experiences and allow our feelings to surface is a first step toward unlocking ourselves from the weight of depression. The therapeutic approaches I draw on to support your shift out of a state of depression to a happier, more hopeful perspective will depend on your unique circumstances. f safety and trust feel confident to start sharing your experience with me, knowing that you are seen and understood. Often we have not had a place to share our struggles where we felt heard and accepted. Even the small shift in perspective that can be the result is enough to begin change.

You are not alone in what you are going through. In fact, sadness and loneliness are reaching epidemic proportions worldwide. In our counselling work together, we will look at your key relationships (with family, friends and with yourself) and we will learn specific techniques to allow you to feel more compassionate with yourself, more connected to others, to better manage your mood, and to make better choices. Although, we can't always change our external circumstances, we can change how we react and deal with those situations. I am looking forward to helping you feel better.

Depression. Can’t get anything done. Guilty all the time. Antidepressants? Ineffective for all but the most depressed - plus you don’t feel “right” when you’re on medication. So then what? Anxiety’s purpose is to push us to achieve more than we think we can. Depression is the body’s way out, when it’s too much, to stop pushing interminably. (1) For short-term relief: I’ll support you to shift how you’re feeling (exercise, getting out, hobbies, better nutrition and sleep hygiene). (2) Let’s reprocess the thinking/feeling that ‘snuck into your bones’ so long ago. Let’s get radical and rewire how you’re experiencing the world! (3) You are no longer alone, we’ll work on this together.

Depression can feel debilitating and leave people feeling isolated and unsure of how to get out of that "grey" zone. I describe it that way because when depressed, everything feels grey and nothing seems to matter. I think it is very important to uncover the underlying causes of a client's depression. This typically involves an increased awareness of how they are seeing themselves, and changing these negative thought patterns. In a way, depression can result in self loathing and recrimination. I help my clients make significant shifts in how they see themselves and others.

Depression or bipolar is a state of mind, and it’s what you have instead of feeling the grief, despair, resentment, or emptiness in you. Most people with depression have some unattended losses, grief or unresolved trauma in their past, that they haven’t known how to attend to. Depression is more than just a chemical imbalance, it’s the logical result of the thoughts and emotions that are running recklessly in your mind. To see those clearly and learn to transform your thoughts, is what I can help you with, either in counseling or through my 8 week Anxiety & Stress Relief Program. See my website for more details.
