Depression may involve feelings of sadness, guilt, loss of interest, lack of energy, and changes in sleep and appetite. Life feels dark and hopeless. Counseling can help you identify the reasons these feelings have arisen, whether from current life events and/or past hurts, and resolve these feelings in a way that allows you to regain a sense of hope, self esteem, and confidence in the future.

Depression can drain us of energy and prevent us from enjoying even the simple pleasures of life. Beilieving that change is possible is often very challenging for someone suffering from depression. The goal of counselling is to work with someone who can walk with you through the changes that may result in different internal experiences. It can also help in minimizing any "unnecessary" negative thoughts or cognitions that actually contribute to low mood, loss of energy and hope.

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.

Have you been experiencing persistent feelings of sadness or discontent? Perhaps you’ve been feeling hopeless, lethargic, achy, anxious or angry? Has your low emotional state been impacting your concentration, motivation, eating or sleeping habits? These are all signs of a depressed mood, which affects about 22% of all Canadians at any given time. Did you know that depression is one of the most common reasons people seek counselling? I use a number of evidence-based therapeutic approaches in my work with clients who are experiencing depressive symptoms, including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), solutions-focused brief therapy (SFBT), and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT).

Depression is the most common mental-health disturbance worldwide and falls within a wide continuum of severity. There is an equally broad range of causes, including grief and loss and absense of a supportive community. Some believe it is biological. Whatever the cause, some individuals feel depression more acutely and more frequently than others. Current research recognizes the benefits of psychotherapy on positive treatment outcomes. My approach is to recognize the life experiences that have contributed to depression and to help address directly the feelings underneath. To find relief and hope is sometimes a matter of learning to dig deeper into feelings with help from a psychotherapist.

If you are depressed, I will help you process the difficult feelings that are causing you pain and lack of enjoyment in your life. I will help you feel not alone and not "crazy." We will explore the origins of your anxiety, take a fresh look at your situation so that over time you can feel more in control of your life. If your depression is a consequence of unresolved issues from childhood.or unresolved trauma I will work with you to understand and integrate painful experiences so that they no longer overshadow the rest of your life. Our work will help you feel more animated and ready to try out your stronger self in everyday relationships.

The heavy cloak of depression can be lifted and you can live again.

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!

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.

Depression responds amazingly well to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, according to all the studies. In fact CBT is THE most researched therapy, with a very high success rate... around 95%. If you would prefer not to take anti-depressants, CBT can work quite well to manage or eliminate your depression. If you are already on anti-depressants, CBT can still work to help you feel better. In addition, EFT is a powerful tool for the release of emotions in the moment. It works instantaneously to make you feel better. Together these are powerful tools to help you feel as happy as possible.

In my practice I work a multi pronged approach to this difficult state being. Traditional talk therapy: Giving space for the client to explore and express feelings, own awareness’s, transform thoughts, grieve, vent, and neutralize guilt, anger and fear. New understandings and thus new neural pathways begin to form. Also marital therapy, Somatic focusing: A profound process of accessing the deep subconscious through breathe work and closed eyed dialoguing with the body, the mind and spirit. And Life Coaching, meditation, visualization, Emotional Freedom Technique, New Decision Therapy, Polarity Therapy, Cranosacral, Reiki, forgiveness and acceptance work. The combination is powerful.

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.
