Depression is often greedy and wanting all of your attention, demanding to be heard. It often prefers that you stay isolated in thoughts which can frequently be negative and sometimes distorted or confusing. Talking about what you've been feeling in these thoughts can help to take back some of the control the depression works hard to steal from us. Working collaboratively, let's explore new perspectives on these thoughts, and develop strategies for managing your life in a healthy and productive way.

Depression hurts and is becoming epidemic in our society. However, depression is a treatable condition and there are effective approaches that can help you break the cycle of chronic unhappiness so you can keep moving forward, learn how to face life’s challenges with greater resilience and regain a sense of well-being. I work from the best evidence- based therapies for depression: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Interpersonal therapy (IPT), Solution Focused Therapy and Art Therapy to help you overcome the mental habits leading to despair, rumination, and self-blame so you can repossess the sense of hope, joy and life balance.

While we all have days where we feel sad and 'depressed', if it goes on day after day so that negative thoughts make us feel exhausted, powerless, empty, discouraged and hopeless, then we need help. Leaving depression untreated can lead to several physical and mental complications and even suicide. Fortunately, trained counsellors can assist us in retraining our mind and teach us new skills to challenge depressive thinking so that we can lead a confidently depression free life.

Depression can feel like being down a deep hole without any way of getting out. I describe therapy as one of the footholds to help get out of the deep hole of depression and many of the tools used in therapy help clients to create other footholds. Often clients will be encouraged to use other tools to help enhance therapy such as medication, yoga and nutrition. I work with my clients to develop the strategies to create their footholds.

Depression is all encompassing. It affects all aspects of our life including our physical health, our emotional state, our thinking patterns, our behaviours and reactions, and our relationships. We often lose interest in participating in life and this can lead to feelings of helplessness, hopelessness and worthlessness. Working together in therapy, we will reconnect you with your world using proven techniques from cognitive behavioural therapy and the mindfulness tradition. Finding meaning, purpose and reconnecting with joy is the ultimate goal.

I want you to know that you do not have to be silent anymore or hide from your truth. I know you walk out the front door of your home and try to put that mask on every day. The mask that tries to tell the world that everything is okay. When people ask how you are, you probably respond saying good, when all you really want to do is scream "not good, not good at all, help me please!" Or maybe you have been stored up in your home and avoiding connections all together because you are tired of pretending that you are okay. I want to say to you, "I got you, I'm here to help, you don't have to pretend or be alone anymore, we really can do this, have faith."

There is an epidemic of depression and anxiety in our time. From an ecotherapy perspective, there is a lot of discussion about ways our current lifestyles promote depression. Whether it is our pace of life and expectations around productivity, our loss of a sense of deeper community and connection, a loss of a sense of purpose, or a deeply felt but unacknowledged sense of disconnection from the earth we depend on. I find that in subtle moments outside, we discover a rooted aliveness of tuning in to who we are, our deeply felt connections with all of life, and perspective on a greater purpose working through us. It is in facing the depression that we can come to embrace greater meaning.

Many times I find that people do not take a holistic bio-psycho-social approach to mood issues. My practice is different as I spend a lot of time taking a really detailed look at how you function in home, community and your school/work environments. We do explore themes in your life to date and understand exactly what we are goal setting around (and that is all done in the initial meeting). I can work with other health care providers including your family doctor - with your permission.

Using Mindfulness Integrated Cognitive Behavior Therapy can improve feelings of self acceptance, self confidence and over all well being. The ability to gain mastery over ones mind, emotions and behaviors can lead to a reduction in symptoms of depression and improve motivation and satisfaction with life. Having an increased capacity to self regulate and make choices rather than react to emotions is also possible with psychotherapy.

Depression can rob one of energy, motivation, clarity, and the ability to make decisions. Often described as a dark cloud, depression can leave people in a bad place, feeling that they do not have much to contribute in life. Therapy has been found to be one of the most effective ways to improve functioning in those who have depression. By having someone truly listen, without distraction, talking about it can make things much better.

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.

Feeling depressed, discouraged, hopeless or helpless can be a painful "stuck" place to be in. We can help you process and overcome the adversity that contributed to this state of collapse, work through the thwarted survival responses that can underlie depression, well as develop skills to address the negative thoughts, assumptions, self-criticism and limiting core beliefs that might be maintaining your low mood and discouragement. We work with the emotional, mental and physical aspects of depression, using mindfulness, cognitive and body-based approaches that are trauma-focused. Together, we can support you to climb out from the depths, and restore hope and a sense of embodied aliveness.

Depression can cripple us and many people do not understand how hard it is. We need someone to listen to us and not judge. I like to offer strategies from my book Picture Your Life. They help people recover from lows they have had for years. The approaches I use have all been proven scientifically to work. I also offer faith-based counseling. I am Christian but do interfaith work. I do not push my beliefs on anyone. We need to believe in ourselves and then something beyond ourselves. For some of us, it is God for others it is their family, work or some project. Please call I can see you within 3 days. My fees are flexible if you are not insured. if you are they are covered.

Not living to one’s full potential is one of the tragedies of human existence. It can, however, be remedied. In the rapidly changing world that we find ourselves in, we have to make our own meaning in life and follow our own sense of direction. If we want to experience being fully alive, we cannot simply accept a life that other people or our culture want for us. We have to be the authors of our own destinies and walk our own paths.

I meet clients where they are at with their depression. I help clients understand their behaviours, emotions and ideas that contribute to their depressed state. I help clients to understand and identify some of the big challenges or events that have happened in their life (e.g., divorce, death, major illness). Through this work, I aim to help clients regain a sense of control and pleasure in their life and often utilize CBT to help clients learn coping techniques and problem-solving skills that they can draw upon both in and out of therapy.

Depression can be soul destroying. It is important to see what it is about - what's behind and underneath it and begin slowly to work with what is holding you down. We can begin to find even the smallest openings that will support you and give you some relief along this path. Often people who suffer from this have such potential. It is wonderful to see when someone starts to allow themselves glimpses into who they really are - their potential.

Depression can change the way you think about yourself and others. It can give you irrational or false thoughts that tend to focus on the negative. It can make it difficult to get out of bed in the morning and can take away enjoyment from the things you once loved. You can feel depression in your physical body, as exhaustion, stomach pains and bowel irritation. It will make you feel like all the good days are gone, but they aren't, there are always better days ahead. I offer a safe space to talk about and work through depression.

When you’re depressed, life can seem overwhelming and empty and you may find yourself lacking in motivation or direction. If you’re struggling with depression, I can help you gain insight into what's contributing to your depression and how you can start feeling better. Drawing on cognitive therapy (CBT) and other methods, we’ll identify concrete steps and changes you can make to overcome your depression. I’ll help you learn to relate more effectively to difficult emotions and moods so you become able to tolerate these feelings without being overwhelmed. As your mood begins to improve, you'll begin to feel more positive about yourself and your life, and more hopeful about the future.

Depression is painful and can be all consuming. It can suck joy and colour from life, as well as any light from the lonely and dark tunnel you may feel you are walking alone. I know from personal and professional experience that depression is treatable. It would be an honour and my pleasure to meet you in this tunnel, and to help you out of it. I use a variety of evidence-based techniques and modalities to treat depression, and to revert the physical changes depression causes the brain and body. Together, we can find you colour, joy, light, and purpose again.
