I incorporate several strategies in treating depression. The biggest potential growth for clients is learning how their thoughts can affect their mood. Often individuals can become stuck in a way of thinking that contributes to their depressive symptoms. I encourage clients to harness control over their thought processes and share strategies and techniques to support them doing so.

Depression can be a daunting issue to deal with. The lack of motivation, perceived hopelessness, low energy, and loss of interest can make it especially difficult for clients to start and maintain their journey towards healing. I work with my clients by helping them to build awareness of the thought processes that may be taking a strangle hold on their lives and finding ways to stop these negative cycles while introducing new patterns of thinking. I work with clients to change behaviours that may be feeding the depression and find new actions that can lead towards a lighter, healthier, and happier path.

For Depression I use the the very well researched cognitive behavioral therapy. Depression is attacked by changing the way one thinks feels and acts. Depression is tackled on all levels first with behavior changes, then with cognitive restructuring both of which require the clients active participation in their healing. Work outside the session is the key to change.

In depression we become "stuck" in a survival "freeze" response that includes brain fog, disorganized thoughts, feelings of "I can't," disconnection, exhaustion, pain and despair. A Somatic Experiencing™ approach to depression works directly with the nervous system through cultivating awareness of the senses, and learning ways to reconnect to a sense of self that is locked in the nervous system. People with depression actually have a lot of energy that is trapped in survival mode to manage safely in a challenging world. If you are reading this, your nervous system has done amazing feats for you to arrive here. Now, with support, you CAN find your way back to connection and vitality.

Depression is a mood disorder that can cause a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest that can interfere with daily functioning. Reaching out for help is a step towards wellness. Symptoms of depression can vary from person to person, but it is a very treatable condition. Therapy for depression helps you overcome the feelings of hopelessness and despair and to gain control of your life.

Do you feel sad, unmotivated, hopeless, helpless, weepy, maybe sleep too much or too little? Have you lost interest in your friends, activities, sex? Have you felt this way for a long time and your relationships and job are suffering? Maybe you have tried prescription drugs or used alcohol or other substance. Now, though, you want to take charge yourself and see some turnaround in your life. Counseling begins with you talking about what is happening in your life. I'll ask questions to help you get a clear understanding of causes and themes. We'll discuss different approaches and behaviours for you to try. Maybe Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or a Trauma Relief therapy would be good for you.

Feeling helpless and hopeless is a symptom of depression—not the reality of your situation. If the thought of tackling depression seems overwhelming, don’t panic! The first step towards to recovery is to ask for help. Psychotherapy can be an enormous help. Effective treatment for depression often includes some form of psychotherapy. Therapy gives you insight and skills to prevent depression from taking over your life. By exploring the root of your depression, a therapist can help you understand why you feel a certain way and to discover your triggers for depression. You will gain practical techniques to reframe negative thinking and employ behavioral skills to combat depression.
