I believe that depression is one of the most common mental health issues and I always tell my clients how it is normal to experience emotions like heavy sadness. I will work with you to find the root causes of the depression. We will work to better understand your triggers and how those link to the types of thoughts you are getting. From there we can plan new responses to the thoughts that are the result of a collaborative effort to ensure the new responses will work for you specifically!

When engulfed in the blackness of depression we loose site of the debilitating negative cloud casting despair over all aspects of our life. We come to see our lives solely through the depression lens rather than being able to construct an accurate map of our reality. With psychotherapy we can learn to once again access a more balanced vision of our living that better recognizes the goodness in our lives and provides direction to possibilities. Depending on the level of clinical depression, medication is often recommended temporarily in conjunction with psychotherapy to alleviate depression symptoms and help bring motivation for movement--the client can begin to help themselves

I have found the Cognitive/Behavioural model of therapy the most efficient one to use with clients suffering from long term depression. Acute depression responds well to Relational, Experiential and Attachment based models of therapy. Most important however, is a warm, empathic, supportive environment in which to explore and resolve client's needs

Therapy can be a place where clients can explore the blocks they are experiencing to feeling ok. Sometimes such things as early childhood experiences, trauma [recent or historic], challenging work situations, feeling overwhelmed in life, and interpersonal and relationship struggles can contribute to feeling disempowered, hopeless, helpless, numb, exhausted, and disinterested in life. Being able to feel supported, to explore and come to understand what is happening, to explore the body's and the nervous system's role in how one is feeling, to speak freely can often help.

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.

Depression is different from simply feeling down or blue. Depression is a mood disorder that affects you in different ways, and may include feelings of hopelessness, anxiety, guilt, and/or worthlessness. Other common symptoms include a lack of energy, difficulty focusing, a change in eating or sleeping, and a loss of interest in sex or other pleasurable activities. Severe depression can also lead to thoughts of suicide or suicide attempts. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is very effective in helping people overcome depression through changing ways of thinking and relating to the world. I help clients understand the depression and incorporate ways of managing and changing their feelings.

Feelings of low mood and depression can take a toll on us emotionally, physically, and cognitively. Counselling support can alleviate these challenging symptoms by exploring the thoughts, feelings, and behaviours that cause us to feel "stuck." Often times, changing one of these elements will have an effect on another; Counselling serves to facilitate the exploration of this process in a safe, supportive, and non-judgemental space.

Sometimes, over the years, we accumulate painful experiences that leave our bodies and minds broken. These experiences can send us into darkness and into a deep solitude. Depression may be caused by different factors and can happen to anyone! The good news is that there are strategies to help us understand the causes of depression and to learn how to manage the symptoms of depression. I will help you explore the causes of your depressed mood, and to walk through ways that can help you to deal with it.
