FREE consultations! When we are feeling depressed it can feel as nothing will help, not even therapy. Depression can take the joy and colour out of life and paint a vision of a future for us where nothing seems to matter and no hope seems to be coming. Our minds can focus on the problems that we are experiencing in the present moment and tell us that these problems are fixed, unchangeable, and overwhelming. No amount of 'trying harder' seems to work; neither does the suggestion others might give us to 'snap out of it.' If only it were so easy. While depression can feel unmoveable; psychotherapy is an evidence-based way to tackle feelings of depression. This is true regardless of whether you are experiencing passing negative mood states that you want to improve or going through a full-blown depression episode. Psychotherapy helps. Approaches such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) can give us new ways to approach the exhaustion, tiredness, and hopelessness that often come along with depression. It's not about trying harder; it's about working differently, learning new ways to work with the thoughts, feelings, and automatic behaviours that come along with depression that set up a vicious cycle bringing us in further negative mood states. If you are struggling with depression, I can help. I will provide you with a non-judgmental, understanding, and caring space to explore what's going on for you. We'll also set goals for our work together and using evidence-based approaches and strategies start to move towards a future where depression continues to fade into the background and your life, dreams, goals, and future seem real and hopeful again. I offer a free no obligation phone consultation and would be happy to work with you.

Depression is a mental disorder that is an improperly used term in pop media as it is normal for us to feel down from time to time. A person experiencing depression is experiencing more than just sadness, they are feeling a severe kind of despair that occurs over a significant period, and thus affects every aspect of their life.

Depression can be a debilitating mental health concern that impacts our well-being, relationships and daily living. These moments can be tough to navigate without someone to trust and confide in for support. The first step of seeking help can feel intimidating and overwhelming. I would love to make the process as comfortable as possible for you.

If you are struggling with overwhelming feelings of sadness that impact day to day functioning, you may be suffering from depression. Beyond feelings of sadness, other symptoms might include being in an irritable mood, loss of interest or pleasure, feelings of guilt, low self-esteem, difficulty sleeping, loss of appetite, loss of energy, and/or difficulties concentrating. These symptoms impair a person, preventing them from living their lives at school, work, or at home. At its worst, depression leads to thoughts about ending one’s life.
