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).

Depression robs us of our enjoyment of life--either through physical symptoms, loss of hope that things will get better or joy in activities that we once loved. When we suffer from depression, our world can become very small. Therapy is a way to start to regain your world. Using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, I will work with you to look at the thoughts that are contributing to your depression. We will explore lifestyle changes that can help in your healing, as well as develop ways of coping with any anxiety that may be contributing to your depression.

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.

Grey Matters International, Inc. and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D. handles depression and other emotional disorders in a very unique way. Most of therapy or counseling processes utilize validation, unconditional positive regard, and reframing as common techniques to get someone to heal from their depression. Though this can be helpful, it rarely fixes the core problem behind it and for tough cases we then refer them usually to a psychiatrist for medication which can have tons of side effects. Instead, why not try a natural and arguably more effective way to not just change your mind, but change the brain--where the depression is rooted. Contact us at

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 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 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.

Depression Counsellor

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."

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.

Does life seem to 'weigh' you down right now? Is getting up and going into the day a challenge? Do you feel nothing matters or have little spark in life? YOu may be depressed. The first thing you need to do is check with your family doctor for an assessment of what level of depression you are in. There are many great western medicines for depression that can support you through this transitional time. Depression usually passes so the tough part is dealing with it while you're in it. Once you've seen your family doctor we can talk about what is going on that has brought you to this state and some strategies to help move you through the fog.

Registered Psychotherapist and Consultant

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!
