We all have a basic human need for connection, validation, acceptance, purpose and self worth. When any of these needs are unmet, depression is a natural result. Sometimes present circumstances are leaving those needs unfulfilled. Sometimes our developmental history has endowed us with internalized messages that conflict with those needs; perhaps we've been hurt in connection, received scorn and judgement instead of validation and acceptance, or been taught that we lack purpose or are not valued. Whatever the cause, I help clients transform depression by addressing both the implicit memories and explicit circumstances that are keeping them trapped.

Depression is unfortunately a common mental ailment amongst Canadians. I have personal experience with depression aside from treating my clients. In addition, I have access to a psychiatrist who virtually works with select clients when in urgent need. This is done in my office, a safe space created for my clients. The client and psychiatrist have their session on a secure video conference site. I am with the client the entire time to continue to support them through their journey.

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.

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 utilize a cognitive behavioural therapy approach for treating depression. I work with the client to help them identify the toughts that they are having that lead to feelings of depression.

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.
