Sometimes we cannot explain how we feel to those around us. And sometimes we feel 'bad' because we don't have a reason for how we feel. We can feel alone, and not understood. Let's take a nonjudgmental lens to what we are feeling, thinking, and doing. From here we can regain some control over our emotions, and over our life. Depression and depressive symptoms can be managed. I look forward to working with you in managing your unique symptoms.

We all experience feeling down at times. But a temporary case of the blues has nothing to do with a real depression. True depression is not the blues, sadness or even grief. It is an overwhelming despair so bleak that those who experience it say that it is the worse pain they have ever endured. The good news is that depression is a treatable illness and those who received treatment have an excellent chance of recovery. In my work I use cognitive-behaviour and insight oriented approaches to help create a shift. Since one episode of depression greatly increases the risk of having another episode, there is evidence that seeking therapy may prevent future episodes.

Depression can come from stress and emotional reactions to situations such as job loss, relationship loss, death of a loved one, etc. It can also be caused by genetic and nutritional deficiencies leading to a reduction in critical neurotransmitters. When working with depression I am mindful of the many facets of depression, and while working with emotions and situations, I also consider the need for consultations with specialists related to sleep, nutrition, and coping which may require supplements and /or medication to treat. I am a member of "Psychotherapy Matters" an organization which can link Psychotherapists with consultations of Psychiatrists within a session with minimal wait time.

Psychotherapy can relieve symptoms of depression. While I use an integrative therapeutic approach, I find that in treating depression, solution focused therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy are particularly effective. Together, we will explore strategies that work for you and find solutions that are easy to implement in your day-to-day life. This is a place to gain a deeper understanding of who you are, what you want in your life, and how to achieve this.

Depression is typically an outcome of a current or past life event, or both. It might be due to grief or a recent disappointment. Depending on what we explore together to be the cause, we will work with action plans and strategies to set your life area in the direction that you want to improve. Further, if there are issues from your past, which is frequently the case, we will identify these upsets, identify schemas that you have formulated that impact how you think, feel, and behave, and we will work to improve your mood. Further, we may work through various worksheets and processes to understand what your thoughts and behaviors are and how these are helping or hurting your mood.

Depression affects both the mind and body. It can impact appetite, sleep, concentration, and even the will to live. What depression is like for you may not be exactly what it’s like for someone else, together we will identify your particular depressive symptoms and the impact they are having on your life. We will explore the origins of your depression and possible depression in your family. Through the process of therapy, you will develop insight and understanding about your depression triggers, process emotions and past experiences that contribute to depressive states, explore your relationship patterns (loss, abuse, and/or misunderstanding) as well as your strengths.

Without a doubt feeling depressed has a profound negative influence on our quality of life. At times we may feel like things are always going to be like this, that there is very little that we can do and we find ourselves stuck in this cycle of helplessness, lack of energy, motivation, withdrawal, and dissociation. My approach to depression begins with helping you understand the different kinds of depression, what could be causing it by considering the stress vulnerability model, and how that applies to you. I tailor my interventions to your needs and provide gentle support and guidance while you are on your journey towards accomplishing your therapy goals and preventing relapse.

Depression is the most common mental-health disturbance worldwide and falls within a wide continuum of severity. There is an equally broad range of causes, including grief and loss and absense of a supportive community. Some believe it is biological. Whatever the cause, some individuals feel depression more acutely and more frequently than others. Current research recognizes the benefits of psychotherapy on positive treatment outcomes. My approach is to recognize the life experiences that have contributed to depression and to help address directly the feelings underneath. To find relief and hope is sometimes a matter of learning to dig deeper into feelings with help from a psychotherapist.

I can work with people for whom Cognitive Behavioural Therapy has not worked, and in situations where CBT has left you feeling like a failure. There are many experiences of, and meanings of, depression. I work with you to get to know your depression, the ways it is unique in its form and its effects, what it does to you and those who love you...from here we will figure out how to respond to it together.
