Depression Counsellor

Jerry Andrechek, MSW. RSW

Registered Social Worker

49 High Street Suite 201(4), Barrie, Ontario

My approach to working with depression is as follows; help the client develop the ability to recognize, accept, and cope with feelings of depression; alleviate depressed mood and return to previous level of effective functioning and develop healthy cognitive patterns and beliefs of self and the world that lead to alleviation of depressive symptoms. Risk of self harm/suicidality continues throughout the therapeutic relationship, empowering the client with health teaching and drawing on community/crisis supports as needed, as well as helping with decision-making regarding psychopharmaceutical interventions through consultation with their physician.

Registered Psychotherapist and Consultant

Depression often comes as a result of not feeling entitled to claim our life and set boundaries to create safety in our life. Instead of feelings like we can grow and become more of who we are, we get caught in the reverse, where we feel more and more that we should shrink and lose our aliveness. I will work with you in a process of recognizing your feelings and getting them to work for you rather than against you. Depression is about dis-empowerment, but we become empowered when we can make sense of our inner world and use our feelings to strengthen ourselves and make the changes we need to make in our life. No need to go it alone, let me guide you through this challenging terrain!

Do you have feelings of helplessness and hopelessness? Do you see the future as bleak with little chance of it getting better? Are thoughts convincing you of things that may not be true? Sometimes we can find ourselves in a dark and lonely place. If you find yourself there more than you would like to be, I can help. I will work with you to explore your emotions, reflect on your experiences and bring light to what seems like a dark world. Through positive, person-centered therapy we can work through unproductive thoughts, emotions and behaviour to set you on the path to the future you want. You can enjoy life and your relationships again. Change can happen.

Registered Psychotherapist

80 Bradford Street Unit 228, Barrie, Ontario

As a counselor I fully understand that life can weigh you down and sometimes that weight can simply be too much to bare alone. Depression can seriously hinder your daily activities and further can cause serious suicidal thoughts. Depression is not a symptom of weakness or simply a negative personality, it is a serious mental health condition. However it is treatable and you are not alone. Thousands of people struggle with these depressive symptoms everyday, each in their own way. I offer a means of battling this symptom and recognizing that it does not define who you are or what you are capable of. I can assist you on your path to recovery and overcoming this debilitating depressive state.

Some people are depressed because of sad life events. Others wake up every day wondering how to force themselves out of bed. In the first case, you may need to talk it through and express what you are feeling. In the second case, we need to find what makes life worthwhile for you. Something in your life makes you happy. Some time in your life was happy. We need to discover what kinds of things make you feel good. If you have a strong tendency towards depression, don't expect to learn to be happy all the time. No one is, and you know that you easily become sad. Still we can learn what helps you and what will give you more minutes, hours and days when you actually enjoy being alive.

Just recognizing symptoms and sign of depression is crucial to encourage individuals to seek treatment. I can help to make sense out of the symptoms that you experience and are not sure "why" is that you can feel "not feeling anything." Let's find together what is alike to feel "happy or satisfied" emotions that you are not yet familiar with. Would you like to find out how "does a better feel alike?" We can take a chance together...

Fluctuations in mood are a normal and inevitable part of being human but if your depression is disrupting your normal functioning it is time to look deeper into its roots and get the support you need. All too often, I see individuals who berate themselves for the heaviness they carry with them. While everyone else operates on a flat surface, you feel that its as if you are always walking uphill. My job as a therapist is to help you unpack and unload some of the heavy burdens you are carrying. Post-therapy, my clients report feeling lighter and more engaged with life. Using an individualized treatment plan, I can support you through this dark time and teach you tools for living a full life.

Grey Matters International, Inc. and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D. handles depression and other emotional disorders in a very unique way. Most of therapy or counseling processes utilize validation, unconditional positive regard, and reframing as common techniques to get someone to heal from their depression. Though this can be helpful, it rarely fixes the core problem behind it and for tough cases we then refer them usually to a psychiatrist for medication which can have tons of side effects. Instead, why not try a natural and arguably more effective way to not just change your mind, but change the brain--where the depression is rooted. Contact us at

Registered Marriage and Family Therapist

93 Bell Farm Road, Suite 102, Barrie, Ontario

I use a number of models including cognitive behavioural therapy, attachment, DBT, and relationship therapies to assist clients to develop better strategies about how to change thinking and feeling patterns that can lead to or reinforce depression. I also am well versed in medication use and see medication as part of a tool kit that clients may choose to use. Clients report that they feel more able to advocate for themselves around medication issues as a result. I have received consistent client feedback that they experience significantly less depression symptoms as a result of our work together and often are able to prevent further episodes of depression.
