It seems to never go away, you get up each day feeling as though the dark cloud that was there yesterday and the day before that, is back today and it feels like it is going to be there tomorrow. While some depression can be circumstantial and others bio-chemical. Depression is not something that ususally changes overnight but if you are willing to do the work, put some time and effort into your therapy, you will overcome.

Depression can feel like a wet blanket you wear around you day in and day out. You may find it hard to remember what if felt like before or have hope that you will ever feel normal again. The most valuable thing I can do for a client with depression is to inspire hope, to help you regain your confidence and recover a positive, constructive outlook on life. My therapeutic approach for helping clients move through their depression incorporates a compassionate and nonjudgmental acceptance so important to supporting changes in ourselves.

My approach to working with depression is threefold. First, we identify the specific symptoms of depression that you are struggling with. We create a plan to combat the symptoms. For example, if you struggle with isolating yourself, we talk about small steps to be around others. At times, I involve your family doctor or a psychiatrist to review your medication if that fits for your lifestyle. Next, we review all previous depressive episodes to find the common thread that triggers the depression. We use this information to help be aware of and prevent further episodes. Last, I help you identify and work through the events or relationships that are likely causing the depression.

Caught under a dark and weighty cloud that affects your thoughts, mood, emotions and behaviour? Maybe you're having trouble concentrating, remembering things or even contemplating suicide. Facing depression can alleviate feelings of sadness, worthlessness, guilt, restlessness, emptiness, irritability (just to name a few!). You may also feel relief from more physical symptoms such as a loss of energy and appetite, aches and pains, and digestive problems. Building on the joy and vitality that you may be overlooking in your life, we will pull you out of your pit of despair and teach you how to walk the path with no giant holes!

When you are depressed you may feel sad, weepy, hopeless, helpless, unmotivated, maybe sleep too much or not enough and also lose interest in sexuality, your friends and activities. These feelings last a long time and are really hard on relationships. You may think that you will never be happy again. You may have tried drugs but now want to take charge yourself of the changes you want to feel in your life. Counseling starts with your story of what is happening. I will ask lots of questions to help you get a clear idea of the causes and patterns in your life. We'll work on coping strategies and maybe try therapies like Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. You'll feel more content with your life.

Depression is a debilitating experience because if you are depressed you are probably very hard on yourself and extremely self critical. ....so much so that you lack enthusiasm, motivation and self esteem . You have probably internalized your anger against yourself . You probably had to do that as a child because there was no where to go with you difficult and uncomfortable feelings. Were you told you were too sensitive? You are not. You need a strong, potent therapist who you can rely on while you are going through re-organizing your internal world to help you make the changes in your life that you need to make.

Registered Social Worker and Certified Canadian Counsellor

550-2950 Douglas St., Victoria, BC V8T 4N4

Using a biological-psychological-social-environmental approach, I help clients to work on their depression. This approach allows the client to identify different possible contributors for their depression, and consequently creating more options for addressing their depression. Identifying different contributors help clients to keep working towards their goals because each contributor can be a specific path for working towards their goals.

Depression can be debilitating, affecting both the person experiencing depression as well as the family members they live with. When possible, I work with everyone involved. I incorporate education about depression as well as tools and strategies designed to address negative thought patterns, habits and behaviours (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) in my work with individuals and families.

Registered Clinical Counsellor

202 - 2186 Oak Bay Avenue, Victoria, BC V8R 1G3

With an emphasis on the latest findings in clinical research as well as cognitive behavioural and emotionally-focused strategies, I work with clients to begin to address their depression symptoms from the inside out. Actionable strategies, customized to each client, are paired with therapeutic work that addresses the emotional, cognitive and behavioural roots of their depression. As a result, clients begin to experience increased feelings of hope, happiness, empowerment and overall vitality and wellbeing. When appropriate, and at the request of each client, I collaborate with the client and his or her medical and/or naturopathic doctor regarding medications and supplements.
