By identifying and processing what may be holding you back from living the life you want, we will guide you through therapy to a different version of yourself.

Waking up in the morning, do you feel a sense of joy and peace, or do you experience heavy feelings of depression or anxiety? Perhaps you have experienced abuse, loss or other challenges and this makes it difficult for you to feel comfort or feel satisfaction in relationships? I may be able to help you feel better; I enjoy helping clients rediscover their own internal resources to move out of the heaviness and create a life of their design.

There are many ways to look at depression, but ultimately when you're in it, you're in it. And it sucks. It affects our waking lives as well as our sleep. Sometimes there is a core event that triggers depression, other times it can be frustratingly random in its onset. My approach to depression is to acknowledge it when a client is affected, and to listen to what its message is. Depression isn't a tiger you wrestle with -- it's not something that lends itself to words like "fix" or "defeat", though understandably a client may wish to do away with it.

At New Roots Therapy, we aim to understand depression in a way that is not pathologizing or failing. Depression can have both internal and external roots; many times, depression is an active response to something that is out of balance in one's life. Regardless of its cause, we ultimately believe that a person is not their depression, but a person can be influenced by depression. By the same token, we believe that people have the ability to be active in influencing the impact of depression on their lives and we hope to explore this with the people we meet.

Depression is a common response to stressful life events, whether prolonged or acute. I help clients determine the possible causes, healthy copying strategies, support systems. Often my clients respond well to the offer of mindful presence and an empathic ear. I prefer to be a part of a larger team helping the client by encouraging them to speak with a spouse/partner, other family, doctor or religious community. I support responsibly the client's choice to pursue pharmaceutical treatment or not.

Depression can manifest itself in many forms. Some people have difficulty completing routine daily tasks, others feel angry or irritable, and others feel numb like they are simply going through daily motions. Depression is often felt psychsomatically - the body tells us something is wrong. Let's listen to the symptoms so we can find strategies.

My approach to working with a client struggling with depression is to use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. We want to challenge the individuals thoughts and behaviours and replace them with a more positive outlook. Self-talk is a technique that works well with replacing negative thoughts with positive thoughts. As well, setting small step-by-step goals is key to achieving success. Each goal should be achievable and tangible. The atmosphere for this therapy needs to be supportive, compassionate and goal oriented.

I practice Person-centered counselling which respects individual uniqueness and steers clear of any form of advice, preferring to support you in finding your own meanings and solutions. Especially useful when your main need is for caring, non-judgemental support and a neutral space where you can get things off your chest. I also practice Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), which is solution and action-focused, especially helpful in tackling unhelpful thinking habits. Has strong evidence for effectiveness in treating both depression and anxiety.

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.

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.
