Depression can be all-consuming. It affects how you feel, how you think, and how you act. Over time, it becomes so exhausting that "shutting down" sometimes starts to seem like a helpful or beneficial choice. If not shutting down, it may show up in other ways, such as unhealthy habits (drug/alcohol use, malnutrition, sexual promiscuity), self-neglect (poor hygiene, bad sleeping habits, isolation), and even socially or professionally (arguing with friends/family, not showing up for work / not completing tasks). Talking to someone about your feelings of sadness, helplessness, or hopelessness can be the first step to getting that flicker of light re-sparked in your life.

Depression has different impacts on different individuals. Because of this, treatment plans specific to depression are especially unique. When I work with clients with depression, I ensure that the root of the depressive mood is explored, the current aspects in the client's life that is maintaining the depression is targeted, and that client-specific interventions and strategies are put into place. Depression has various aspects to it and it is only in exploring each of these aspects that treatment can be thorough and effective.

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.

Sadness and Depression are often challenges we may encounter in our lifetime. Feelings, thoughts and behaviors associated with them can at times overwhelm and even paralyze us with their power. In a supportive and empathic environment I help clients understand these feelings, progress through their isolation with them, find a way through their tight hold and learn to live productively again.

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.

Getting to the root of one's depression, why it occurs, and how it presents itself is imperative in understanding how one can remedy it. By working with clients to explore and comprehensively understand their depression, we will be able to better manage, mitigate, or eliminate the cognitions, behaviours, and feelings tied to our depression. How we became depressed is only the first step in ones work on depression; figuring out how to create change, support, and maintain change is the bulk of it.

Experiencing big emotional ups and downs is normal, but there can be times when it feels like the lows are getting longer, more frequent, and harder to deal with. Therapy should be a safe space where you feel comfortable sharing and exploring your thoughts, feelings, and experiences with someone who offers you empathy, authenticity, and acceptance. I work collaboratively with clients to explore how feelings of depression show up in their lives, and to strengthen and develop strategies to minimize the impact they have on living the life you want to live. Book a free consultation to learn more about my approach and explore if we are a good fit.

Depression can make a person feel as if the world has gone dark and nothing can bring them joy. Utilizing effective therapeutic methods, I can help you identify factors that contribute to depression and help you find ways to adapt to those situations. We will set realistic goals for the future, identify distorted thought processes or unhelpful behaviours that contribute to feelings of hopelessness and helplessness and develop skills to cope and prevent future episodes of depression.

Depression not only affects your mood state, but also your -- *behavior, *the way you look at yourself, *relationship with people around you and *physical and organic function. Gestalt therapy emphasizes your capacity to develop your potential. In therapy with me change will take place through the relational experience, and increased awareness, this process, is what gives meaning to discovery to you. In Gestalt therapy, what is considered is your totality, a combination of your sensorial, affective, intellectual, social, and spiritual dimensions (Brownell, 2010). Studies show that the patients treated with Gestalt demonstrated fewer depressive symptoms following the intervention.

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
