Aside from bio-chemical imbalances in one's body, depression can arise from a number of situational and relational factors. We can explore how any of these can be understood, responded to, and lived with in a way which can help to alleviate depressive challenges. It can be difficult to gain awareness of what's not right, and how to get things right, when you're battling just to survive. Our work together can help to clarify what's happening, and how to put helpful coping practices to work.

In many cases, depression is not a disease but a reaction to your life’s circumstances. In fact, depression seems to be a symptom rather than the problem itself. Even when depression is diagnosed medically, how do you cope with your life, and the many faces of depression. Just feeling better can be a good temporary solution but rebuilding your life is the ultimate goal. I approach depression as a "Healing Response of our Mind". A natural state caused by circumstances and their root causes. Once the root causes have been dealt with, your mind returns to its normal self. This approach is very successful and is designed to work in conjunction with medication - or as a stand-alone method.

I will help you gain insight into why you are feeling this way, and coach you on strategies to improve your mood.

Depression can be extremely debilitating for people as it can impact one's ability to function at work, socially or interpersonally. Feelings of sadness can take over to the point where one's ability to find joy in daily activities is diminished. Sleeplessness, loss of appetite, anxiety, and sometimes even thoughts of suicide or not uncommon for sufferers of depression. Melinda uses Cognitive Therapy when working with clients who struggle with depression.

Sadness is a common emotion. However, when sadness lingers in our lives, is long term, and affects our day to day life, then it is something to be addressed. I help clients to take steps towards reducing depression through related actions. Alongside this, I work with clients to understand how the depression is controlling them and what strategies we might consider to reduce this control. For example, clients often find it helpful to engage with others, challenge their thinking, consider their past positive experiences, and consider changes to their environment to begin to feel more and more positive emotions and less depressed.

Have you ever heard : "Just snap out of it!", "I also get depressed but I don't have the luxury of lying all day in bed", "You shouldn't feel depressed, you should be grateful of what you have"? Was hearing that helpful? Did this elevate the cloud covering your life? Or did this make you angry, hopeless, worthless or disappointed? In therapy we can explore the connections between your symptoms, feelings, thoughts and behaviours and try to find healthy ways to make your life enjoyable again.

My approach to working with a client struggling with depression is to use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. We want to challenge the individuals thoughts and behaviours and replace them with a more positive outlook. Self-talk is a technique that works well with replacing negative thoughts with positive thoughts. As well, setting small step-by-step goals is key to achieving success. Each goal should be achievable and tangible. The atmosphere for this therapy needs to be supportive, compassionate and goal oriented.

Depression is not something to be ashamed of, nor is it a character flaw or a sign of a weak personality. No one with depression can just "snap out of it". You wouldn't ask someone to "snap out of diabetes or some other illness and you cannot expect it of a person with depression. Everyone gets sad sometimes - a brief blue mood, feelings of disappointment or loss. The great news is that up to 80% of people who receive proper treatment improve as a result. There are two principle modes of treatment for depression - Psychotherapy and medication. You’re not alone; millions of families and friends have felt exactly like you. Your one step closer to change.

In order to gain an accurate and complete understanding of my client, I conduct thorough initial assessments on their presenting symptoms of depression. Treatment for depression usually includes CBT techniques, including but not limited to Thought Records and Cognitive Restructuring. I regularly assess my clients well-being and and the majority report feeling better and reduced symptoms after as little as four sessions.

Depression sometimes feels like a persistent shadow, one that can make everyday tasks and goals daunting and heavy. The immobilization of one's physical, emotional, and mental spirit can take a toll if left untreated. I work with clients to understand the origins of their depression and to create the tools and skills to eventually move out from that persistent shadow that depression casts on their day to day lives. I know how hard it can be to face such inner demons, I walk with my clients along that journey of emerging from the shadows to once again find that light.

If you are looking to this page chances are you know that life is not as enjoyable as you would like it can be. One of the symptoms of depression is feeling unmotivated so congratulation on getting out of that trap and start looking for help. Depression may be a result of other underlying issues you may be carrying for a long time. Many times I noticed accumulated anger in patients which are not able to express it in a constructive way. When this anger is directed to themselves it can result in depression. Together we can identify what is triggering and perpetuating it and we can change the course out of what feels like an emotional trap. I will be me pleasure to witness your growth.

There are many ways to look at depression, but ultimately when you're in it, you're in it. And it sucks. It affects our waking lives as well as our sleep. Sometimes there is a core event that triggers depression, other times it can be frustratingly random in its onset. My approach to depression is to acknowledge it when a client is affected, and to listen to what its message is. Depression isn't a tiger you wrestle with -- it's not something that lends itself to words like "fix" or "defeat", though understandably a client may wish to do away with it.
