People who struggle with depression are often misunderstood by the people around them. Often times people think they should just "snap out of it". What many don't understand is that depression can be a scary, debilitating illness that takes over a person's life. While depression can be situational or chronic, there are tools, strategies and medicines which are very effective in managing its effects. Clients can benefit by having a therapist that is patient and understanding who can both empathize with how they are feeling and offer ways for the person to take back control of his or her life. In a collaborative way, I work with clients to develop a treatment plan which gives them hope.

Dealing with drug or alcohol addiction and recovery can be a difficult process often accompanied by feelings of hopelessness and helplessness. Those already dealing with alcohol or drug dependence may not have the coping mechanisms needed to properly heal during this time. Many mental health professionals often identify five stages of grief — denial, bargaining, anger, depression and acceptance. Since some of these emotions often overlap with the addiction process, treatment for both can often be achieved at the same time, but it takes special attention to these unique circumstances to obtain a successful outcome.

Depression can present as a low grade depression "I never really feel light hearted and happy' or as a Severe Depression that can be agonizing and debilitating 'I don't know how to ever get out of this dark hole'. Depression attacks the Sense of Self. Most often it is early life experiences that contribute to a person's vulnerability to depression. I like to work with EMDR, a trauma treatment method that helps the brain to process painful experiences from the Past and integrate those experiences into a healthier Here and Now. EMDR can support the person to leave the depressed state of Helplessness and supports the person to build Strengths and 'to come out of the shell' into a stronger Self.

We have worked with children, adolescents and adults who suffer from depression. Focusing on positive strategies and coping skills, we find that each person suffering from depression must find alternatives to destructive thinking and behaviors. Sometimes medication may be necessary. In that case, a referral can be made to your family physician. Sometimes, individuals prefer a natural approach without medication. The decision of medication is an individual choice. We support whatever you feel is best for you.

Depression is often the tip of the iceberg, in terms of what is happening with the psyche. It lets you know something is wrong, and then, you must explore the underlying causes. Once you have done that, relief is possible. There are times when the depression has been around for so long that you may have forgotten what it feels like to feel good...in such cases, a combined approach, in cooperation with your MD, with therapy + medications, will improve your prognosis.

We will work together to develop a tailor made treatment plan to help you develop new coping mechanisms and to get your life back on track. Depression is a treatable disorder.
