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.

One of the most well known aspects of mental health, depression, often gets confused with “being sad”. Depression can zap an individual’s energy, while also leaving them with a sense of hopelessness and helplessness. Unchecked, depression can be very dangerous, sometimes leading to individuals to consider suicide. Luckily, depression can also be countered through counselling, where an individual can identify and counter the various thought patterns that contribute to their depression, while also fostering hope.

Depression and anxiety often go hand in hand. If you find that you or your child/teen is unmotivated, tired, feeling 'stuck' or lacking motivation to get things done, or even get out of bed some days, I can help. During treatment, I work with my clients to focus on creating positive changes, while also building on skills to support what is already working.

In working with individuals who struggle with depression, I primarily use a cognitive behavioural therapeutic (CBT) approach. The principal aim of this approach is to increase awareness that thoughts and behaviours drive emotion. In addition, the goal is to increase consciousness of distorted perceptions. That is, often individuals who struggle with depression do not think accurately, and if their thoughts are not accurate, than they cannot be trusted. The purpose of CBT is to bring awareness to cognitive distortions and then teach individuals how to rebalance their thoughts to be more accurate.

If you have lost interest in your usual activities, are feeling sad and/or more tired than usual, have noticed a change in sleep or appetite, have difficulty concentrating or are feeling that life isn't worth living, you may be experiencing depression. Research has shown that a combination of medical treatment and therapy is the most successful in treating depression. I have helped many clients reduce depression symptoms and have led depression support groups.
