Ann Marie Dewhurst, PhD

Registered Psychologist

9412 91 Street, Edmonton, AB T6C 3P4

Depression is a whole body experience. I support clients in making change through creating a holistic plan. By exploring the thoughts, feelings and physical aspects of the depression that is experienced, we look for the most effective place to intervene. I rely heavily on cognitive behavioural therapy, hypnosis, mindfulness, gentle movement, and narrative therapy techniques to support change.

Cheryl Shea, M.Div., RPC, MPCC

Registered Professional Counsellor, Master Practitioner in Clinical Counselling

Suite 608, 10216-124 Street NW, Edmonton, AB T5N 4A3

We can be depressed for a variety of reasons - disappointment, bereavement, rejection. Ultimately depression requires identification of the cause. If you are dealing with loss and life change counselling is often sufficent. If you are burned out from work or being a caregiver then counselling and self care are both important. If you suffer from longterm depression then there can be a three-fold treatment of selfcare, counselling and medication that can be helpful. Not all depression requires medical intervention but for maybe people it is a helpful part of recovering hope.

Registered Psychologist

#200, 6732 - 75th St., Edmonton, AB T6E 6T9

I treat the presentation of depression by exploring the cause of the depression as opposed to attempting to simply suppress the symptoms. I believe it is useful to explore the individual's thinking, behaviour, emotions, relationships, and overall health. An individual's thinking may cause a downward spiral into the darkness of depression. Challenging the thought patterns that become entrenched often causes a major shift in the presenting symptoms. Creating new pathways is possible and often life altering as a new way of being emerges.

Registered Psychologist

10069 80 Avenue, Edmonton, AB T6E 1T4

Depression is one of the most difficult and painful of all human experiences. It robs us of energy, interest and the will to make things better. Much of the basis for depression lies in one's thinking. We will explore thinking patterns and how they impact your emotions. We will investigate new skills such as solving problems, changing thinking patterns, and reactivating your life. We will also create a plan to prevent future episodes, how to recognize depression episodes early, and how to prevent depression from spiralling deeper.

Christina Bell, Registered Psychologist

Certified Sex Addiction Therapist

Red Tree Psychology 710 - 9707 110 Street, Edmonton, AB T5K 0J8

I use a cognitive therapy and mindfulness-based approach to treating depression. I also work with client to establish a holistic self-care practice, because physical issues like sleep deprivation can worsen depression. In my experience, anxiety and depression often occur together, so I work with clients to help cope with these symptoms and lower stress levels. In my experience, I have supported many individuals with depression in hospital and outpatient settings since 2000. Depression is one of the most common mental health concerns, and there are many approaches and techniques that can be effective.

Depression Therapist

Michael Handman, Ph.D

Clinical Psychologist

Cloverdale Professional Group 9407 - 98 Avenue, Edmonton, AB T6C 2C8

I accurately diagnose an individual to ascertain whether he/she suffers from Major Depression or from sadness. The treatment plan might be different but the outcome is similar as my goal is to always help the individual resolve the issues that have brought him/her to therapy. The focus is for the client to be able to move on to a healthy, positive and productive way of living.

Depression is something that can arise at any moment in time due to a certain event in someones life. Someone with depression may feel lost, hopeless or down at times. Depression is treatable and after the clients seek treatment they will experience increased energy, feel more "positive" about life and have relief from emotional suffering. Treatment will help the person find hope and regain control of their life.

Depression Therapist

Fresh Hope Counselling, R. Psych, RSW, MSW

Registered Psychologists and Master's Level Social Workers

17321 - 108 Avenue NW, Edmonton, AB T5S 1G2

I use a Cognitive-Behavioural approach to treating depression, along with a holistic approach of bringing health to the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual realms of a person. Depression affects a person on all these levels and therefore needs to be treated that way. You can expect to learn skills, increase awareness of negative thought patterns and change them, and implement changes to your lifestyle which will help battle depression.

Depression Therapist

Steve Jukes, M.Sc. in MFT, R.Psych.

Registered Psychologist

#312, 9707 110 Street (Edmonton Psychological Group), Edmonton, AB T5K 2L9

While there are many causes and contributors to depression, a common approach to working with it involves challenging negative thinking. Hurtful or damaging stories we tell ourselves tend to lead to feelings of hopelessness and sadness, which in turn, manifest as depression. At least in part, therapy for depression involves exploring the roots of negative thinking whereby its legitimacy is safely challenged. By undermining these hurtful thoughts, we are more inclined to experience preferred emotions, and a more enjoyable outcome. Clients that engage this process tend to find relief from depressive symptoms and live a more fulfilling life with more options available to them.

Depression Therapist

Nicolas Allen, MA, BPE, MES

Registered Psychologist

18019-111 Ave, Edmonton, AB T5S 2P2

Life has a habit of throwing us off balance which can be quite disturbing and disruptive to our lives. I work with my clients to help develop more positive focus in their lives and build skills that lead to more positive experiences and happier outcomes. By building on past success in their lives, we are able to create new solutions to problems and recognize what attributes the client already has to conquer their problems.

Depression Therapist

Nancy Hurst, Ph.D

Registered Psychologist

10069- 80 Ave, Edmonton, AB T6E-1T4

Depression can feel like overwhelming sadness, or maybe like you are in a "funk" that you can not get out of. People often start to isolate themselves, and focus on negative thoughts. I offer a warm, safe place to share your feelings, examine your relationships and perceptions that may be contributing to your depression. I introduce concrete suggestions that will help you get your back on track. People frequently feel a sense of relief after sharing their burdens. In discussing experiences people are often able to view themselves differently and gain insight into how they can more effectively deal with situations and relationships.

Registered Psychologist

#302, 10140 - 117 Street, Edmonton, AB T5K 1X3

True clinical depression is a mood disorder in which feelings of sadness, loss, anger, or frustration interfere with everyday life for weeks or longer. Depending upon the person, depression therapy can involve a number of treatment approaches including exitential psychotherapy, and cognitive affective/beahvioral therepy. If you have mild depression, you may only need one of these treatments. People with more severe depression usually need combination of both treatments. It takes time to feel better, but there are usually day-to-day improvements.
