Often the sense of hopelessness, the inactivity, isolation, sleep and eating issues, and sadness associated with depression benefit from work in therapy, where clients can explore the thoughts associated with these symptoms, and can work to manage or change them. Often negative core beliefs about oneself, learned in the past, can be roadblocks to allowing the depressive symptoms to ease. Working on these can lead to a sense of empowerment and to change. Overwhelming feelings benefit from being heard and understood. Sometimes a diagnosis and medication are required to assist in the therapy process. I refer to a physician for medication, if you and I think that is necessary.

Allow me to offer you my support, to help you understand your situation and its possible causes and to gently explore manageable ways to better cope, feel new hope and to improve your quality of life. 905-842-3626

Depression is different from ordinary sadness. With sadness, the person experiences a negative event, cries, and grieves over what happened. Afterward, the person feels a little bit better. Depression, on the other hand, occurs when the person falls into a pattern of negative thinking and inactivity. It is associated with feelings of hopelessness and helplessness. After an episode of depression the person does not feel any better. Treatment of depression largely involves teaching people skills to identify and modify negative thinking patterns; reversing withdrawal from activities; finding ways of managing or solving life problems; developing acceptance for things that cannot be changed.

If you are feeling exhausted from your life and feel like you are stuck, unable to change anything and want things to slow down. I can help you reconnect with some of the energy that is missing in your life. Depression can be an anger or resentment that is turned inwards towards yourself. In working with you, I allow you to safely hold space for your anger. I ask you to share with me the disappointments that you have been experiencing and ask you to see yourself differently. By being in therapy you are allowed to create something new for yourself, seeing yourself as a creator of your life not a victim. The benefit of therapy is that you have support that is non-judgemental yet challenging.

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.

In M4K 1N2 - Nearby to Don Mills.

I utilize a cognitive behavioural therapy approach for treating depression. I work with the client to help them identify the toughts that they are having that lead to feelings of depression. We also work to discover the unhelpful habits that they have that lead to low mood. This is accomplished by discussion within the therapy session, however clients are also provided with homework in which they are asked to work on strategies in their environment to identify faulty thinking patterns.

When treating a child or adolescent with depression the first thing will be to assess if they are at risk of harm to themselves or others and whether hospitalization is necessary to ensure safety. Along these ends is a careful examination of the severity of symptoms. Is your child or adolescent lacking energy? is his/ her grades dropping? Is she being bullied? Cyberbullied? How is his appetite? How is his sleep? These are a few of the behaviours to watch for. With young children a combination of play and cognitive behavioural therapy will be used. With adolescents expressive arts therapy, narrative therapy, or sometimes dialectical behaviour therapy is helpful.

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.

I offer several different screenings for depression. I use something called the PHQ-9, which is an itemized list of symptoms that are commonly associated with depression. The PHQ-9 is not meant to provide a diagnosis; however can be a helpful tool in being able to better understand your symptoms. The results of this screening will give us an ideal regarding the severity of your symptoms and I treat accordingly.
