Depression Counsellor

Amanda Green, MSW, RSW

Registered Social Worker

Chicopee Area, Kitchener, Ontario

First of all, know that you are not alone as depression is epidemic in our society. I am here to get to know your unique experience of depression and the impact that it's having on your life and relationships. I have specialized training in some of the leading therapeutic models for treating depression such as CBT and Mindfulness Practice. I also believe that our past experiences and relationships can have a huge impact on our self-image and mood. So, together, we will explore your story and look to the future by identifying and building on your strengths and resilience (even if it can sometimes be hard to see them when we are depressed).

Janeen Weatherhead, RP, CCC

Registered Psychotherapist & Canadian Certified Counsellor

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."

Individual, Couples, and Family Counselling

28 Weber Street, Unit 2, Kitchener, Ontario

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 Counsellor

Shelley Read, BA, MSW, RSW

Registered Social Worker, Counsellor, Aging Well Consultant

690 Belmont Ave W., Suite 101, Kitchener, Ontario

A major depressive disorder — usually just called “depression” — is different than the “blues”. Someone experiencing depression is grappling with feelings of severe despair over an extended period of time. Almost every aspect of their life can be affected, including their emotions, physical health, relationships and work. For people with depression, it does not feel like there is a “light at the end of the tunnel” — there is just a long, dark tunnel. Getting help is part of the recovery. There is hope for those suffering from depression and those who have a loved one suffering this often debilitating disease. A therapist will assist you in your journey towards a life without depression.

Depression Counsellor

Holly Mathers, B.A., M.T.S., R.P.

Registered Psychotherapist

825 King St. W., Kitchener, Ontario

Depression can be isolating and lonely. Coming to counselling changes that. Instead of isolation, you can experience support, validation and assistance to sort through your difficult thoughts, feelings and actions in order to find hope. Often depression comes from unresolved issues and losses in life that need to be given some attention and mourned. We can do this important work together in counselling.

Depression Counsellor

James Morgan, M.Div., M.A.Sc.

Psychotherapist

21 Lydia, Kitchener, Ontario

Depression can be understood as a weight or gravity which is pulling the person back into themselves. This has been made necessary because they have moved too far away from their centred and true self. My work in this area is to help the person identify and affirm this deepest centre of Self. This entails going more deeply into the feelings of depression, understanding what has been pushed down through the depression, and working to bring it into the light.

Depression Counsellor

Sarah Schlote, MA, RP, CCC, SEP

Registered Psychotherapist, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner

5420 Highway 6 North, rooms 338-342 (East Entrance), Guelph, Ontario

Feeling depressed, discouraged, hopeless or helpless can be a painful "stuck" place to be in. The Refuge's team can help you process and overcome the challenging life experiences that have contributed to this state of collapse, as 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. Practitioners at The Refuge work with the emotional, mental and physical aspects of depression, using mindfulness, cognitive and body-based approaches that are trauma specialized. Together, we can support you to climb out from the depths, and restore hope and a sense of embodied aliveness.

Depression Counsellor

Rhonda Kane, R.N.B.Sc.N., MTS(PCC), RMFT, RP

Registered Marriage and Family Therapist

The Kane Centre, 330 Trillium Drive, Unit A1, Kitchener, Ontario

Depression needs to be carefully examined in the context of one's life, past and current coping skills. Rhonda has extensive knowledge and skill in helping people to understand their depression, gain fresh insights about their lives and process those past or present events that may be contributing factors. She is strongly empathetic and intuitive and guides people through a process of coming to terms with their condition and navigating their way towards a "new" normal state. She often uses EMDR as part of the process, a technique which is highly effective in treating anxiety and depression.

Brooke Collins, MDiv.; RP

Registered Psychotherapist

100 Fergus Ave, Kitchener, ON N2A 2H2, Kitchener, Ontario

Depression can rob of us of so many things- energy, relationships, joy and purpose. It convinces us that things will never change and that it will always win. In our therapy sessions we will examine how the depression convinces you to stop fighting it. We can evaluate your depressed cycle and begin to put a plan into place that will help you overcome it. I will create a place of trust and nurture and together we will show you that you do have a purpose, you can experience joy and renewed energy for your life and relationships. It is hard work but let’s work together to reconnect you with your inner strength to overcome the strong hold depression has on you.

Depression Counsellor

Leah Valian, MSW, RSW

Registered Social Worker / Registered Sex Therapist (BESTCO)

15 Schneider Avenue (at Queen Street), Kitchener, Ontario

We overuse the word " depressed" The typical short term "depression" people experience, is entirely different from the physical illness of depression that exhausts, immobilizes and sickens us. Your sad feelings and low moods deserve attention. Thankfully many options move us to enjoying life again. I can help you to navigate the challenges and to assess what resources best suit you. Medication is not for everyone but can be a life saver for many. Let's give you the compassionate attention you deserve. I can help you to decide whether its time for a medical opinion. You have suffered long enough and deserve help now.
