Registered Psychotherapists

303-63 Glencoe Street, Ottawa, Ontario

Our therapists are trained to be attuned to client needs and to establish a therapeutic bond which increases the likelihood of treating depression. There is not a “one-size fits all” approach. In one approach, we explore the thoughts, feelings and behaviours that contribute to depression. Many therapists focus on underlying factors from the past that may contribute to current depression. Sometimes the focus is more on the approach whereby the clients are met with great compassion and are given the platform to tend to their feelings without judgment. The therapists are skilled at moving from one approach to another, often within the same session, to be able to meet the client’s needs.

Many people experience a depressed mood during their life when they feel limited in finding the joy, focus, energy and achievements they used to enjoy. Depression can affect many areas of living and you deserve to get support in striving to bring back your hope and drive for accomplishments. I work with individuals and families to come to greater understanding of the struggles and strengths unique to their situations, consider meanings limiting choices, and find and act on ways to gain back one’s life from the influence of sadness. I am experienced supporting those grieving loss or navigating life changes or difficult situations. Your healing journey can benefit from compassionate support

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

Therapist and Consultant

Depression often comes as a result of not feeling entitled to claim our life and set boundaries to create safety in our life. Instead of feelings like we can grow and become more of who we are, we get caught in the reverse, where we feel more and more that we should shrink and lose our aliveness. I will work with you in a process of recognizing your feelings and getting them to work for you rather than against you. Depression is about dis-empowerment, but we become empowered when we can make sense of our inner world and use our feelings to strengthen ourselves and make the changes we need to make in our life. No need to go it alone, let me guide you through this challenging terrain!

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.

Lifesource Medical Centre, 2130 Robertson Rd., Ottawa, Ontario

When we are feeling depressed, there are several mental mistakes that we are making. So my role as a therapist is to help people correct those mental mistakes behind depression. Once those are corrected, the hoplessness dissipates and hope starts to glimmer. When the client is feeling calm about his/her circumstance, it will then be easy to make him/her feel the way he/she really wants to feel

Research shows that Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is very effective for treating depression. Our therapists at Elim Counselling are trained in understaning the cognitive and behavioral factors that lead to and maintain depression. By using this model of therapy we have been able to help clients modify maladaptive thinking patterns and self sabotaging behaviours that are often part of the cycle of depression.

Depression is a sign that a person's body is telling them it is not happy - it is in distress. Sometimes this makes perfect sense, such as after a loss, a change, or as a sign of exhaustion/burnout. Sometimes it is more chronic. There may be both medication and psychotherapy required. Because depression leads people to withdraw it is already a sign of health for them to come forward and talk about their depression with a professional. I would use a combination of therapies to treat depression - including talk therapy, schema assessment, emotionally focused therapy, EMDR. Our goal is to understand the message of the depression, and heal it at source, not to mask it.

Depression can be an isolating, exhausting, and discouraging experience. Often misunderstood by friends and family, it can leave us feeling empty and withdrawn. It can be helpful to have someone walk alongside you, to offer an empathetic ear, and perhaps experiment with some ideas to help you live more free, and happy. It can sometimes be beneficial to identify triggers; events and thought patterns that may be affecting you.
