You can be released from the grip of depression and reclaim your life. As you progress in counselling you can start to feel life flowing through you as you reengage with friends and family.

Depression has many forms; from a mild, passing funk, to a solid, dark cloud that follows you everywhere for days, weeks, or months on end. Depression is triggered both by confused thinking and by life events that we perceive as having no real or lasting solution or as being too painful to look at, let alone overcome. It is understandable that you will feel resistant to reaching out for help when you are depressed because being depressed means that some part of you believes there is no hope and no point in trying to change things. But there is! You just need someone who can quickly help you to see why you're stuck and teach you the simple steps to freedom. That's where we come in.

Depression may be described as feeling sad, blue, unhappy, miserable, or down in the dumps. Most of us feel this way at one time or another for short periods. Depression is also known as clinical or major depression. This is a mood disorder that will affect one in eight Canadians at some point in their lives. It changes the way people feel, leaving them with mental and physical symptoms for long periods of time. It can look quite different from person to person. As a counselor therapist I will be non-judgemental, empathetic and caring as I work with you to relieve your symptoms, increase your capacity and address relational issues that have been impacted by your depression.

All of us experience some form of despair throughout our lifetime. Sometimes it can really make coping difficult. The high majority of depressions are situational, where the origin of the depression is related to an issue. I can help discover underlying issues that may be contributing. For all depresssion, our thinking gets affected. I can help bring perspective and help clients change their feelings by changing their thinking. I can help clients who can barely get out of bed, to slowly regaining a sense of normalcy in their life.

Depression is also anger turned inward. It is important look at what the anger is and why it is turned inside. Letting go and forgiving oneself for what has happened in the past is huge to future peace and contentment in your life.

The good news is that depression is the most treatable emotional condition. With counseling, depression can be overcome and your life can become more meaningful and pleasurable.

A major depressive disorder — usually just called “depression” — is different than the “blues”. Someone experiencing depression is grappling with feelings of severe despair over an extended period of time. Almost every aspect of their life can be affected, including their emotions, physical health, relationships and work. For people with depression, it does not feel like there is a “light at the end of the tunnel” — there is just a long, dark tunnel.

I have worked with many clients with depression and I feel that it is very important to recognize that some depression is situational and due to an individual's circumstances. It is important to work through this type of depression but usually it changes when the situation changes. It is when depression does not go away that becomes a problem and it is important to try to determine what the cause is . The therapeutic interventions I use help to hone into the depression and to determine which type we are dealing with. At times, severe depression will need to be referred to a medical professional.

Depression can hit us at any stage in life, whether we are children, teenagers, young adult, new mothers, adults or seniors. That does not mean you have to continue to live with it! While medications may help some individuals, depression is often related to negative self talk, low self-esteem, traumatic events, and loss of hope. With the use of cognitive behavioural therapy and the bible Margriet will help you find the hope you once had.

Depression is prevalent in both sex addicts and their partners. If the depression appears clinically significant, I recommend they visit a psychiatrist or doctor for medication to stabilize the depressive symptoms. Depression therapy looks different for each person based on individual circumstances but, generally, I do the following: 1) For sex addicts, I use behavioral techniques to help them escape the addiction. Then I implement interpersonal and cognitive behavioral therapies to work on the depression. I also teach addicts how to love their partners. 2) For partners of sex addicts, I use interpersonal therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and healing prayer.
