Feeling sad, blue or down are part of life but experiencing depression involves overwhelming feelings of anguish and hopelessness over time. I understand that depression is debilitating and negatively affects your feelings, thoughts, behaviour and physical health. With or without a diagnosis, I can help you process and learn how to better cope.

Depression is not a sign of weakness! I can help you alleviate the guilt that accompanies depression. I am trained in evidence based strategies that are as effective as medication, but also better for relapse prevention. Being compassionate to the self and learning to adjust negative thought and behaviour patterns are key factors in overcoming depression. I will work with you to establish small manageable goals that will not overwhelm you. I will help you to improve relationships that typically play a major role in sustaining depressive symptoms. Simply taking the time to talk and process your thoughts will help you to feel better after only 1 session.

Feeling down from time to time is a normal part of the process of life. But when emptiness and hopelessness take hold and won’t go away, it may be depression. Depression can make you feel helpless, despair, or empty and numb. Some people describe depression as “living in a black hole”. The key to recovery is to start with small changes and take things one day at a time. Feeling better takes time, but you can get there if you make positive choices for yourself each day and draw on the support of other people.

Mindfulness-based therapy and cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) are the primary approaches I use with clients to provide tools and skills for managing and reducing depression. For clients experiencing depression, it is important to realize that most feelings of depression are the result of, in some, reliving the pain from the past. If you are experiencing depression, your therapy will include learning to recognize the those mental and emotional places where you are 'stuck' in the pain from the past, and learn to release it. If you are on anti-depressants, therapy will also assist in managing your depression.

Registered Psychotherapist (RP) - Integrative, Relational Somatic Therapist for Individuals & Couples

In L3P 1Y7 - Nearby to Brooklin.

I'm a relational psychotherapist. So while I know that you feel bad inside, I also see that a lot of those bad feelings - worry, low self-esteem, fear of failing, depression - exist at the boundary or interface where you meet the world. They're relational feelings as well as self-feelings. They sound like: "Am I good enough? Have I made a mistake in their eyes? Do they like me? Am I in trouble?" When you feel that the answers to these questions are negative, then you feel badly about yourself, in yourself. Relational psychotherapy helps you understand your depression, yourself and how just being bad feelings is the first step towards moving past them.

Depression is unfortunately a common mental ailment amongst Canadians. I have personal experience with depression aside from treating my clients. In addition, I have access to a psychiatrist who virtually works with select clients when in urgent need. This is done in my office, a safe space created for my clients. The client and psychiatrist have their session on a secure video conference site. I am with the client the entire time to continue to support them through their journey.

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!

If you are depressed you know the cloud of “the black dog” that is always with you (World Health Organization). Having had my own past depression experience, I too understand my own journey through this challenge. I am trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), an extension of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), one of the therapies of choice for depression. Depending on your unique situation and needs, I will work alongside your doctor and any medical treatment s/he may advise, and will help you develop/enhance good self-care and support networks, as well as work on the thought patterns that may be contributing to your depression. Hope is available for you.
