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.

The symptoms of hopelessness and being unloveable are deeply disturbing, but with evidenced-based approach of Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, we can undo our limiting beliefs about our selves, others, and the world. This will likely reduce symptoms and encourage clients to behave in ways that activate their world towards life that is positive, meaningful and small yet powerful moments of happiness. We will also look at the environmental concerns (i.e. anti-oppressive lens on systems of discrimination) as well as internal capacity in exploring important negative emotions.

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. We also work to discover the unhelpful habits that they have that lead to low mood. This is accomplished by discussion within the therapy session, however clients are also provided with homework in which they are asked to work on strategies in their environment to identify faulty thinking patterns.

In a safe atmosphere we will examine and discuss historical early and current triggers, and work to resolve their effects on your mood and situation. We dismantle self-defeating ingrained beliefs that prevent inspired living, fulfillment and action. Depression can adversely effect one’s relationships with others including partners, friends, and family, making them feel pushed away. Conversely, depression can be triggered by relationships. In these depressions, we'll focus on relationships and improving them, regardless of the issues. The outcome is often experienced as a clarity of mind, a sense of liberation, confidence, love, better relationsihips, productivity, and overall happiness.

Often the sense of hopelessness, the inactivity, isolation, sleep and eating issues, and sadness associated with depression benefit from work in therapy, where clients can explore the thoughts associated with these symptoms, and can work to manage or change them. Often negative core beliefs about oneself, learned in the past, can be roadblocks to allowing the depressive symptoms to ease. Working on these can lead to a sense of empowerment and to change. Overwhelming feelings benefit from being heard and understood. Sometimes a diagnosis and medication are required to assist in the therapy process. I refer to a physician for medication, if you and I think that is necessary.

Studies have shown that psychotherapy for depression can be as effective as taking antidepressants. Depression can range from mild feelings of sadness and emptiness to all-encompassing, fully debilitating darkness. If you are experiencing feelings of depression, emptiness, hopelessness, and sadness and are finding it difficult to function in your day to day life, psychotherapy can be helpful in helping you to understand what is going on with you and help you to rise up from the depths to lead a more satisfying and meaningful life. It can also assist you in re-engaging in the process of living and in relationships with the people who are important to you.

If you are looking to this page chances are you know that life is not as enjoyable as you would like it can be. One of the symptoms of depression is feeling unmotivated so congratulation on getting out of that trap and start looking for help. Depression may be a result of other underlying issues you may be carrying for a long time. Many times I noticed accumulated anger in patients which are not able to express it in a constructive way. When this anger is directed to themselves it can result in depression. Together we can identify what is triggering and perpetuating it and we can change the course out of what feels like an emotional trap. I will be me pleasure to witness your growth.

Depression is usually defined as feeling sad and emotionally distraught. However, contrary to such common beliefs, depression is about losing contact with life. A person who is depressed is usually lethargic, disinterested, devoid of all feeling, including feeling of sadness. Depression is about loss of vitality and zest for life. In most cases, depression is triggered by the experience of loss (i.e. loss of a relationship, capacity for work, illness, financial instability or dislocation). Psychotherapy provides a safe space to process life experiences that might have activated such feelings of loss and offer support to work through such challenging life experiences.

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.

The symptoms of Depression make us feel unmotivated and immobile in our daily lives. No matter how much we want to and try to snap out of them, sometimes it just feels impossible. These feelings could be the residual effect of a major traumatic event or the result of an accumulation of seemingly insignificant factors such as the pressure of unrealistic and unreasonable expectations or the lack of a stable support system in our lives. You need to address these factors in order to pursue your goal effectively, but you shouldn't have to do it alone. I use techniques such as CBT to help clients overcome their feelings of Depression and begin taking charge of their lives again.

Aside from bio-chemical imbalances in one's body, depression can arise from a number of situational and relational factors. We can explore how any of these can be understood, responded to, and lived with in a way which can help to alleviate depressive challenges. It can be difficult to gain awareness of what's not right, and how to get things right, when you're battling just to survive. Our work together can help to clarify what's happening, and how to put helpful coping practices to work.

Depression is one of the main reasons people initiate psychotherapy. A critical step for patients is understanding the origin of their depression. This may include past and/or current experiences. I work with my patients to help them change the way they react to internal and external stresses. Techniques may include cognitive-behavioural, relaxation, psychodynamic, hypnotherapy, and meditation. I help patients cope better with the physical and emotional symptoms of depression including sleep disruption, fatigue, weight loss and gain, decreased sex drive, and problems in personal relationships and at work. Treatment helps enhance self-esteem and improve life satisfaction.

When treating a child or adolescent with depression the first thing will be to assess if they are at risk of harm to themselves or others and whether hospitalization is necessary to ensure safety. Along these ends is a careful examination of the severity of symptoms. Is your child or adolescent lacking energy? is his/ her grades dropping? Is she being bullied? Cyberbullied? How is his appetite? How is his sleep? These are a few of the behaviours to watch for. With young children a combination of play and cognitive behavioural therapy will be used. With adolescents expressive arts therapy, narrative therapy, or sometimes dialectical behaviour therapy is helpful.

In M4C 1T3 - Nearby to Whitchurch Stouffville.

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.
