Depression leads to disconnection: disconnection from the closest people who love you, from your environment, from your own feelings and emotions and ultimately from being engaged in life. Feelings of hopelessness and helplessness are the earmarks for depression. I have a very high rate of success working with people with depression. My approach is eclectic but mostly grounded in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy. See my Self Assessment for Depression test on my website.

Depression takes many forms. One can be: blue, listless, hopeless, sad, dispirited, nervous, fatigued; be defeating oneself, in a funk, etc. It can include: feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, loss of interest in daily activities; appetite, weight or sleep changes; anger, irritability, loss of energy, self-loathing, recklessness and so on. But it’s also unique to each of us. Help for any of this is best with you being in charge. My job as your therapist is to listen and follow as fully as I can what way you want to change. My approach will be focused on how best to address the specific symptoms and situation you face in particular. Ultimately, balanced self-assertion is the real key.

Depression is a thief. It takes and steals and robs a person of hope, happiness and essentially life. Depression can have many causes, so it is important to note that sometimes treatment must be collaborative through both a family physician and a counsellor. It is my hope, that with working together, we can formulate a plan to manage the problem situation and restore a sense of well-being.

Are you sad, angry, anxious? I can help you with processing and managing these negative emotions. I consider the client's past and present when considering depression. We know that therapy is essential for clients experiencing signs and symptoms of depression. A holistic approach is helpful. Anxiety and depression are often connected for some people. A trauma and attachment informed approach is helpful. I assist people with tools and strategies to help them cope in every day life. 1 in 5 people are currently experiencing mental health challenges. Anxiety and depression are a challenge for people whether in their home, personal and work life. I can help.

There are a number of issues that may present in depression, including loss, grief, trauma, and/or any experiences or learning that may impact the sense of self. Depression can be helped by direct cognitive approaches, challenging and guiding past the tendencies to judge self; by behavioural approaches that guide or help back to meaningful activity; by exploratory approaches that help look at events or learning that may have led to the current view of world, self, or future; and/or by approaches that simply support or help by instilling hope, infusing a sense that change can occur (in fact, does naturally occur), and that current distress will not last indefinitely.

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 often our body/minds’ way of saying “slow down and look at things that may be negatively affecting your life.” An unfortunate side effect of this coping strategy is that it can prevent us from having the motivation or clarity to work on things that might be helpful. The work we do together will examine past and present barriers to living a more fulfilling life. This could include processing past traumas, rethinking unhelpful behaviour patterns or coping strategies. As depression subsides you may notice an increase in motivation, a desire to connect more with others, and positive mood.

Depression can be something that suddenly surprises us or it may have been a lifelong companion. Either way, counselling helps the symptoms of depression to become more manageable. Together we can work on strategies that will gradually assist you to gently re-shape your life. Patience is a key ingredient to getting better. Making changes is definitely possible.

My understanding is that depression can be the result of many things. If you have suffered loss, either recent or past and this has not been resolved, it is a normal part of the grief process. If you have anger that you have not been able to express safely, it can turn inward and cause depression. Many folks experience "seasonal" depression, and still others "situational" depression. I offer you a safe space to explore your feelings and to understand the possible causes of your depression, as well as strategies to help lessen the impact of this on your life so that you can move forward towards your goals.
