Though depression is often thought of as a kind of stuck sadness, it can disguise itself in many ways: intense anger, social withdrawal, "workaholism", physical pain, lack of interest or motivation, numbness or indifference. In therapy, we'll take a two-pronged approached to address the symptoms and causes of your depression. We'll explore the underlying thinking and feeling mechanism behind your depression while co-developing an action plan to work through the "stuckness" in your day-to-day life.

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.

I am specialized in working with emotion regulation difficulties, such as depression. My counselling approach is informed by Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which explore one’s relationship with their thoughts, feelings, behaviours, and physical sensations in order to promote greater self-awareness, regulation of difficult moods, and present-moment mindedness. MBCT was designed to help clients cultivate skills to notice warning signs leading to depression relapse in order to prevent further episodes. Both MBCT and CBT have received extensive research support for their effectiveness in treating depression.

Depression can be devestating for the person who experiences it, however, when looked at through a slightly different lense it can also be an opportunity to make the changes your body, mind, emotions, and spirit are demanding of you. I have supported many clients to recover from depression and live their lives with a renewed sense of meaning and hope.

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.

The purpose of depression counselling or depression therapy is to help alter the way you think and react to situations. Depression typically displays thought that focus on a severe inability to perform daily functions, very low mood, personal helplessness, and other symptoms mentioned above. We want to change this way of thinking to a more normalized or more helpful thought process, through Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. This involves focusing on a more realistic likelihood of various outcomes, and on the ability to cope and problem-solve challenging circumstances. By changing the way you think, we are able to also eliminate the physical symptoms associated with your depression.

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!

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.

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.
