The difference between depression and pain is often misunderstood. We get stuck in a process that should come to a natural completion. We get stuck because our environment does not encourage us to respect our feelings, to honour our process and to discover our own way to live. I believe no one would suffer depression if they could express themselves fully and be heard. Therapy can teach you how to receive this respect, then you naturally begin to give yourself the compassion and understanding you need to allow your process to reach completion. To remember or rediscover emotions, from laughter to anger to tears; To allow flow to replace the fear that fed the depression and hopelessness.

Depression is one of the main reasons people initiate psychotherapy. A critical step for patients is understanding the origin of their depression. This may include past and/or current experiences. I work with my patients to help them change the way they react to internal and external stresses. Techniques may include cognitive-behavioural, relaxation, psychodynamic, hypnotherapy, and meditation. I help patients cope better with the physical and emotional symptoms of depression including sleep disruption, fatigue, weight loss and gain, decreased sex drive, and problems in personal relationships and at work. Treatment helps enhance self-esteem and improve life satisfaction.

Yuck. Depression is one of those challenges that feeds itself. The more depressed you become the less you want to do what you have to get better. And hey, you might well have darn good reason to be depressed. I get that. I personally beat depression years ago. But take a moment and remember what a good day, or even good moment felt like? We have all had them, and we can have them again. Using an integrated form of coaching and psychotherapy I can help you build skills and experiences that push depression out of your life, and fills it with happiness and gratitude. There's a science to all this - and its not just the psychology, it is the science of neuroplasticity.

Depression is a normal human behaviour which typically indicates the need to slow down and spend time on "refueling" yourself. Depression becomes clinical when ignored and the emotion begins to interfere with everyday functioning. In a nurturing and caring environment we begin the slow process of making that person buoyant. We set up small achievable goals decided on by the client. The goal is to teach them how to accept, listen to their emotion and take action long before clinical depression.

Clients who are experiencing depression can benefit greatly from having someone to talk to about their experience. Just the act of sharing and having someone nonjudgmental listen to the inherent obstacles one is facing can begin to lift the veil of difficulty. Therapy for depression can help people get back to work, have more positive relationships, and help enable change at the moment when people need it most. Examining depression is also an extremely fertile experience to understand more profoundly what ones values are and how to begin to strengthen oneself in order to face further challenges in life.

Depression is not a sign of weakness! I can help you alleviate the guilt that accompanies depression. I am trained in evidence based strategies that are as effective as medication, but also better for relapse prevention. Being compassionate to the self and learning to adjust negative thought and behaviour patterns are key factors in overcoming depression. I will work with you to establish small manageable goals that will not overwhelm you. I will help you to improve relationships that typically play a major role in sustaining depressive symptoms. Simply taking the time to talk and process your thoughts will help you to feel better after only 1 session.

Depression is not something to be ashamed of, nor is it a character flaw or a sign of a weak personality. No one with depression can just "snap out of it". You wouldn't ask someone to "snap out of diabetes or some other illness and you cannot expect it of a person with depression. Everyone gets sad sometimes - a brief blue mood, feelings of disappointment or loss. The great news is that up to 80% of people who receive proper treatment improve as a result. There are two principle modes of treatment for depression - Psychotherapy and medication. You’re not alone; millions of families and friends have felt exactly like you. Your one step closer to change.

Aside from bio-chemical imbalances in one's body, depression can arise from a number of situational and relational factors. We can explore how any of these can be understood, responded to, and lived with in a way which can help to alleviate depressive challenges. It can be difficult to gain awareness of what's not right, and how to get things right, when you're battling just to survive. Our work together can help to clarify what's happening, and how to put helpful coping practices to work.

Approximately 1 out of 4 people have experienced depression or extreme stress. They are not alonen
