One of the most well known aspects of mental health, depression, often gets confused with “being sad”. Depression can zap an individual’s energy, while also leaving them with a sense of hopelessness and helplessness. Unchecked, depression can be very dangerous, sometimes leading to individuals to consider suicide. Luckily, depression can also be countered through counselling, where an individual can identify and counter the various thought patterns that contribute to their depression, while also fostering hope.

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!

Tackling depression on your own can be an overwhelming experience since it affects almost every aspect of daily life and relationships. It requires the willingness to explore your thoughts and viewpoints and reach a new level of understanding about yourself. It also requires gradually adapting new thoughts that overtime can become your allies. Through the process of therapy, gradual changes to habits are also explored for you to become more skilled at managing depression. The goal in my approach is helping you become the expert in managing your own thoughts and feelings in the future and managing your depression more efficiently.

Mood problems affect and thoughts about ourselves, others and impacts the way we see the world. Depression is a very common disorder and can be disabling to the person as well as those with whom you interact. Depression can be caused from many factors: genetics, situational crises, and unmet interpersonal needs. The good news is that depression is treatable. Through counseling and sometimes with the use of medication prescribed by your doctor, one can gain the tools to help you throughout the rest of your life.

Art Therapist and Counsellor

565 Sanitorium Rd., Unit 204A, Hamilton, L9C 7N4 | 905-319-1488

I combine therapeutic art making with multiple therapeutic techniques and talking therapy based on my client’s need. Clients may be required to create directed pieces of art to gauge their moods and work through things and/or thought patterns that they are struggling with. I guide my clients to focus on their hidden strengths or things that are going well in their lives. This may be difficult to achieve at first, but as my clients work through the process they learn or rediscover things about themselves that may have not been known or lost to them. My clients learn to recognize what they are feeling, identify their triggers, and ways to manage these feelings and care for themselves.

Treatment for depression obliges a therapeutic approach that is nonjudgmental and compassionate. Whether long-standing or mediated by situational factors, many of us find ourselves struggling with such feelings in our life-time–affecting changes in our sleep, concentration, decision-making, patience, energy, appetite, motivation and more – ultimately interfering with living our lives fully. I am experienced with working with adults suffering symptoms of depression, working together with their family and treating clinicians, as needed, in an effort to guide them toward systematic recovery, discovery, and to sustain good habits moving forward.

Are you crawling through your days and nights, seeing life through a grey heaviness and seeing no hope for a light even in the distance? Depression puts pressure on your thoughts and emotions to see the world negatively and feel powerless to effect change. The body expresses it through drained energy, disturbed sleep and eating patterns and in other ways equally as unwelcome. Learn strategies, drain the swamp of unresolved issues and rediscover ownership of and fulfillment in your life. Contact me and we'll work together to get there.
