Psychotherapist, coach

126 Seaton Street, Toronto, ON M5A 2T3

Depression responds amazingly well to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, according to all the studies. In fact CBT is THE most researched therapy, with a very high success rate... around 95%. If you would prefer not to take anti-depressants, CBT can work quite well to manage or eliminate your depression. If you are already on anti-depressants, CBT can still work to help you feel better. In addition, EFT is a powerful tool for the release of emotions in the moment. It works instantaneously to make you feel better. Together these are powerful tools to help you feel as happy as possible.

Paul Parnass, M.S.W. R.S.W.

Registered Social Worker

Yonge and Eglinton, Toronto, ON M4P 1G4

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.

Erica Berman, PhD, RP

Registered Psychotherapist

324 Bloor St. West, 2nd Floor, Toronto, ON M5S 1W5

A depressed mood state may have many contributing factors. I work with my clients to address the negative thoughts, feelings and assumptions that may be causing them distress. If depression is situational, we work together to create an action plan for addressing the presenting problems and/or developing effective coping strategies. I draw on techniques from CBT and narrative therapy to try and shift my clients' core beliefs, assumptions and automatic thoughts.

Depression Therapist

Christina Becker, MBA, Dip. Analy. Psych. (Zurich)

Jungian Analyst, Clinical Member, OSP

437 Roncesvalles Avenue, Toronto, ON M6R 3B9

I see depression as having two origins. It is psyche's response to being overwhelmed or being unable to deal with particular circumstances in one's life. Then energy is not available for every day tasks. Depression can also be understood as a soul-loss, that is, a lost connection to the energy that creates meaning. As a Jungian Analyst, my focus is on uncovering the unconscious reasons for the depression and to find creative ways to release blocked psychic energy.

Depression Therapist

Jaime Saibil, M.A.

Registered Psychotherapist & Cognitive behavioural therapist

180 Bloor street west, Toronto, ON M5S 1T6

I practice Person-centered counselling which respects individual uniqueness and steers clear of any form of advice, preferring to support you in finding your own meanings and solutions. Especially useful when your main need is for caring, non-judgemental support and a neutral space where you can get things off your chest. I also practice Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), which is solution and action-focused, especially helpful in tackling unhelpful thinking habits. Has strong evidence for effectiveness in treating both depression and anxiety.

Depression Therapist

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Toronto, ON M5J 2T3

Grey Matters International, Inc. and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D. handles depression and other emotional disorders in a very unique way. Most of therapy or counseling processes utilize validation, unconditional positive regard, and reframing as common techniques to get someone to heal from their depression. Though this can be helpful, it rarely fixes the core problem behind it and for tough cases we then refer them usually to a psychiatrist for medication which can have tons of side effects. Instead, why not try a natural and arguably more effective way to not just change your mind, but change the brain--where the depression is rooted. Contact us at

Depression Therapist

Lesli Musicar, M.Ed., Counselling Psychology

Registered Psychotherapist

348 Danforth Avenue, Suite 215, Toronto, ON M4K 1N8

Depression comes in many forms. At its most severe, it can cripple us, zap our energy, and make it impossible to get out of bed. But more often, it can feel like sadness, loneliness, indifference, or boredom. Sometimes it comes from current circumstances. Usually it has much deeper roots. I can help you devise strategies to climb out of the abyss and to find more effective ways to stay out of it. I will help you get to the bottom of your depression, and clear it out for good.

Depression Therapist

Mitch Smolkin, M.A., Counselling Psychology

Psychotherapist and Couples Counsellor

208 St Clair Ave West Suite #2, Toronto, ON M4V 1R2

Clients who are experiencing depression can benefit greatly from having someone to talk to about their experience. Just the act of sharing and having someone nonjudgmental listen to the inherent obstacles one is facing can begin to lift the veil of difficulty. Therapy for depression can help people get back to work, have more positive relationships, and help enable change at the moment when people need it most. Examining depression is also an extremely fertile experience to understand more profoundly what ones values are and how to begin to strengthen oneself in order to face further challenges in life.
