Depression is a complex disorder in which an individual experiences enduring symptoms including feeling down, insomnia, fatigue, headaches and even thoughts of suicide. Though it has negative affects on the way an individual feels, thinks and behaves, it is treatable. Through the use of cognitive behavioural therapy along with talk therapy techniques, they help by positively guiding thought processes, emotions and behaviors by focusing the attention on how to alter these factors for a hopeful and encouraging state of mind.

Depression can resemble a “deep dark hole” within. Through a wide variety of user friendly Cognitive Behavioral techniques and strategies, the client is unburdened from this life of darkness. Life long preventative techniques are also taught so that the client can easily recognize the initial triggers and signs of depression. The client can then learn to implement strategies and techniques taught and avoid further self harm or emotional challenges.

Feeling down from time to time is a normal part of the process of life. But when emptiness and hopelessness take hold and won’t go away, it may be depression. Depression can make you feel helpless, despair, or empty and numb. Some people describe depression as “living in a black hole”. The key to recovery is to start with small changes and take things one day at a time. Feeling better takes time, but you can get there if you make positive choices for yourself each day and draw on the support of other people.

I define Depression as having an "Emotional Fever." If you're running an emotional fever and find it difficult to recover. Hire me as your counselor/coach and I will help you: 1) understand the reasons of your depression, 2) learn to read your emotional thermometer, 3) track your emotional fever, 4) establish a nurse-patient self-care relationship, and 5) build a strong support system. As a bonus, I will include a thermometer (at no cost). You will be able to take your or someone's emotional temperature quickly and easily. I have helped 1000's of people (young & old) recover from short and long term depression. Give me a try. I can help.....

Depression can come from stress and emotional reactions to situations such as job loss, relationship loss, death of a loved one, etc. It can also be caused by genetic and nutritional deficiencies leading to a reduction in critical neurotransmitters. When working with depression I am mindful of the many facets of depression, and while working with emotions and situations, I also consider the need for consultations with specialists related to sleep, nutrition, and coping which may require supplements and /or medication to treat. I am a member of "Psychotherapy Matters" an organization which can link Psychotherapists with consultations of Psychiatrists within a session with minimal wait time.

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.

In my practice I work a multi pronged approach to this difficult state being. Traditional talk therapy: Giving space for the client to explore and express feelings, own awareness’s, transform thoughts, grieve, vent, and neutralize guilt, anger and fear. New understandings and thus new neural pathways begin to form. Also marital therapy, Somatic focusing: A profound process of accessing the deep subconscious through breathe work and closed eyed dialoguing with the body, the mind and spirit. And Life Coaching, meditation, visualization, Emotional Freedom Technique, New Decision Therapy, Polarity Therapy, Cranosacral, Reiki, forgiveness and acceptance work. The combination is powerful.

Depression can be crippling. It is not easy to wake up everyday and lack the motivation to do the things that you love. Depression counselling will use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) to help you identify faulty thought patterns and encourage you to regain the energy to get back into doing the things you love to do.

I can work with people for whom Cognitive Behavioural Therapy has not worked, and in situations where CBT has left you feeling like a failure. There are many experiences of, and meanings of, depression. I work with you to get to know your depression, the ways it is unique in its form and its effects, what it does to you and those who love you...from here we will figure out how to respond to it together.
