Clients who are experiencing depression can benefit greatly from having someone to talk to about their experience. Just the act of sharing and having someone nonjudgmental listen to the inherent obstacles one is facing can begin to lift the veil of difficulty. Therapy for depression can help people get back to work, have more positive relationships, and help enable change at the moment when people need it most. Examining depression is also an extremely fertile experience to understand more profoundly what ones values are and how to begin to strengthen oneself in order to face further challenges in life.

It is formless and it is without colours or boundaries: it is depression. Depression creeps into our lives:sometimes quickly or sometimes it grows over a period of weeks or months. In it, we feel ourselves slipping ever deeper and further away from the things that had mattered in our lives.Perhaps we know that talking to someone might help, but, finding the way to that person seems impossible.Communicating will help.Together,you will share whatever or wherever you find yourself: I will hear you and stay present with you in that place. When you are ready, we will look at what is happening for you.The darkness and weight will start to lighten and greater understanding will come with that light

Though depression is often thought of as a kind of stuck sadness, it can disguise itself in many ways: intense anger, social withdrawal, "workaholism", physical pain, lack of interest or motivation, numbness or indifference. In therapy, we'll take a two-pronged approached to address the symptoms and causes of your depression. We'll explore the underlying thinking and feeling mechanism behind your depression while co-developing an action plan to work through the "stuckness" in your day-to-day life.

Depression can be debilitating on one's day-to-day life. In my practice, I offer a safe place to help you recognize the features and patterns of your depression with the use of Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques to help you regain control of your life. In particular, CBT is among the most researched and proven treatments for mild to moderate depression. I strive to incorporate cognitive behavioural focused intervention into individually tailored treatment. My gentle integrative approach can help uncover your strength and the positive aspect that may have been absent.

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.

A depressed mood state may have many contributing factors. I work with my clients to address the negative thoughts, feelings and assumptions that may be causing them distress. If depression is situational, we work together to create an action plan for addressing the presenting problems and/or developing effective coping strategies. I draw on techniques from CBT and narrative therapy to try and shift my clients' core beliefs, assumptions and automatic thoughts.

I am specialized in working with emotion regulation difficulties, such as depression. My counselling approach is informed by Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which explore one’s relationship with their thoughts, feelings, behaviours, and physical sensations in order to promote greater self-awareness, regulation of difficult moods, and present-moment mindedness. MBCT was designed to help clients cultivate skills to notice warning signs leading to depression relapse in order to prevent further episodes. Both MBCT and CBT have received extensive research support for their effectiveness in treating depression.

Are you having trouble sleeping and eating? Do you find it difficult to get out of bed in the morning? Perhaps you find yourself crying frequently? And maybe you find that you lack energy and motivation. Depression can creep into our lives without us knowing, and without an understanding of what it is we are experiencing. As a counsellor I work a lot with clients who come to me to talk about depression. When I meet with you I will ask you questions about how you are coping with your situation, and if I think you might be depressed, I will talk with you about it. Depression can be treated successfully and I want you to know that I can use many strategies to help you overcome your depression.

Depression comes in many forms. At its most severe, it can cripple us, zap our energy, and make it impossible to get out of bed. But more often, it can feel like sadness, loneliness, indifference, or boredom. Sometimes it comes from current circumstances. Usually it has much deeper roots. I can help you devise strategies to climb out of the abyss and to find more effective ways to stay out of it. I will help you get to the bottom of your depression, and clear it out for good.

People talk about being 'depressed' when they really mean they are feeling sad. Depression has very specific signs and symptoms that accompany deep sadness. Insomnia, exhaustion, over sleeping, loss of appetite or over eating are a few signs. Self-criticism, hopelessness, concentration difficulties, overall negativity and suicidal thoughts are some of the thoughts that overtake the mind. Irritability, anger, guilt, shame and nervousness can accompany the sad emotions. Both psychotherapy and couples therapy are very effective in treating depression by helping to reflect on what brought on the depression and what options to take on your own or together to over come it.

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!
