Depression is the sense of being stuck in life and nothing moves. There are different forms of depression that goes along with the stuckness. Sometimes it is contextual, sometimes it's grief, other times it is mixed with anxiety so it appears differently than typical depression. Psychoeducation and therapy will help to create connection and movement. For some people, the combination of medication and therapy is the best option but not everyone needs medication and not everyone needs therapy. Together we can sort out what you need and how to maximize your recovery.

Modern populations are increasingly overfed, malnourished, sedentary, sunlight-deficient, sleep-deprived, and socially-isolated. Research is showing that depressed people who put time and energy into activities that will help them recover have a higher recovery rate. Things that can help improve mood and feelings are: physical exercise, diet, managing our thoughts and feelings, self-care, social contact, improving our body 'clock' and mindfulness. None of them work like a magic cure, but when used regularly and in combination, they will help you feel much better. Everyone's mood fluctuates, so even if you put these things into practice, you will still have bad days. Be patient, it takes time

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.

Depression feels like a 1,000 lb. weight. It's so heavy and foreboding that it makes it hard to face a day. Everything in you wants to surrender to it and just crawl back under the covers. Or, it manifests itself in different ways: you feel irritated much of the time, short-tempered, exhausted, restless, and you don't enjoy life the way you did before. Let me help you discover the reasons why you feel this way, and even if you know why, perhaps you need some guidance in terms of helping you get 'unstuck'. Just give me a call and we can begin...

Depression can negatively affect our relationships, ability to concentrate, feelings of self-worth, and life enjoyment. Even getting out of bed in the morning can be tough. We know that counselling can help by interrupting patterns of thought and behaviour that feed the depression. I work with you by sharing skills designed to positively change the way you think about things and the way you interact with others and the world around you. You may feel helpless or hopeless, but know that you are not alone.

Depression is a serious mental disorder that affects every area of a person's life. It is a regular mode of operation for those who have it, unlike the occasional sadness that everyone experiences from time to time. Depression might be mild, characterized by low energy and a lack of interest, or it might be severe, characterized by violent mood swings and a desire to give up on life. Left untreated, the person suffering depression might contemplate harming themselves. Depression is frequently linked to substance abuse, as it effects the same area of the brain, and sufferers of depression often try to self medicate with drugs or alcohol. At Valiant Recovery, we treat the dual diagnosis of depression and substance abuse in order to care for the whole person.
