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 mood disorder that can cause a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest that can interfere with daily functioning. Reaching out for help is a step towards wellness. Symptoms of depression can vary from person to person, but it is a very treatable condition. Therapy for depression helps you overcome the feelings of hopelessness and despair and to gain control of your life.

Mindfulness-based therapy and cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) are the primary approaches I use with clients to provide tools and skills for managing and reducing depression. For clients experiencing depression, it is important to realize that most feelings of depression are the result of, in some, reliving the pain from the past. If you are experiencing depression, your therapy will include learning to recognize the those mental and emotional places where you are 'stuck' in the pain from the past, and learn to release it. If you are on anti-depressants, therapy will also assist in managing your depression.

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.

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.

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.

Learning to talk about your symptoms of depression can open doors to a deeper and more compassionate relationship with yourself. Managing and understanding what lies beneath your symptoms of depression can help you open the doors to feelings that you didn't realize you were holding onto... feelings that need a voice, and that are screaming for your attention but can't be heard under the weight of your depression. I can help you safely explore your emotions, implement the changes you can, and learn to have a stronger relationship with yourself.

Depression can be debilitating for an individual to live with as it takes over their life and is not something they asked to have and are confused with why they can't get out of the rut. As a therapist, I know it is important to start where the client is at as well as recognize when implementing strategies of change is important. My approach is to offer Cognitive Behaviour Therapy where you will learn coping skills and in a safe environment be exposed to situations that will increase your self awareness to the point you are able to manage the emotions.

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 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 is the monster that hides in the shadows waiting for any opportunity to remind you that you are bad, worthless, and not good enough. You may have good days, but it is always there in the background, waiting to pounce on a thought, feeling, worry, situation...waiting to sink you with self-doubt, self-criticism, and self-hatred. I help clients recognize, understand, and manage this depression monster. I believe that everyone has within them a core ability to fight this monster via self-understanding, compassion, and acceptance. I work with clients to help them implement effective strategies to disarm and disable the depression monster.

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 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. We 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 us guide you through this challenging terrain!

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.
