Thoughts, feelings, actions, and core beliefs about oneself, relationships, and the world often have an impact on overall mood and well-being. Depression can be a debilitating struggle and often, with the help of a compassionate and unbiased therapist, you can start to uncover, understand, and challenge longstanding patterns of thinking, acting and behaving that impact on your mood. With this increased awareness, many strategies and tools can be learned to alter these patterns and ultimately find some relief from depression and personal growth.

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.

This title can fit many conditions that interfere with our normal energy system , including numerous medical/physical ones, hence thorough assessment is required. Much overused, often unhelpful or anti-helpful, in my experience every “depression” is unique to the individual and made of a complex of factors and aspects that need careful sorting out. A pervasively under-felt stress reaction, it has many mental components, conscious and not, and often immediate environmental/behavioral ones. Usually just the process of therapeutic exploration brings some relief over ‘baseline’: empowerment in specific areas of living is the main direction. "Oppression" seems a more fruitful concept to apply.

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 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 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.

When experiencing depression, it is important to connect with a therapist who is capable of navigating the complex layers of what may be troubling us. I view depression holistically, acknowledging that it is often a convergence of psychological, emotional, and physical symptoms that can often look unique to each person who experiences it. As a psychotherapist, I am specialized in helping clients to understand the root factors that are likely contributing to periods of low mood, an absence of motivation, or hopelessness. Through processes of self-inquiry I help clients to develop strategies and reconnect with a greater sense of meaning that can feel lost during periods of depression.

Depression takes many forms.
