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.

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.
