I am a Registered Social Worker with a passion for supporting individuals who have experienced intergenerational trauma. Do you fear disappointing anyone? Are you highly critical of yourself? Do you feel responsible for how others feel? Are you great at taking care of others but struggle to recognize your own needs? Impacts of childhood family trauma can be pervasive and show up in our adult lives in the form of anxiety, depression, family and relationship conflicts, and low self-esteem/self-worth.

I use a blend of EMDR, somatic therapy, ego state therapy, IFS and music therapy to target anxiety, depression and trauma responses.
Are you feeling chained to the past and locked into “autopilot” mode? Are relationships leaving you wonder about belonging or being good enough? Trauma leaves an undeniable trail of distrust and fear in our mind and our bodies. Trauma is what went wrong and what was never given. Its imprints shape our stress response, emotional thresholds and how we relate to others. So, what if you could quiet your survival brain and take back control of your life? Therapy is about becoming the architect of your life and the master of your mind and body. It’s time to take charge and shape the new you.

Recent years have not been kind to our mental health. As we come out of this pandemic, it is natural to feel stuck, overwhelmed, or even inadequate compared to those who seem to be moving forward with ease. As a result, you may be questioning your level of connection in your relationships and home-life, perhaps your ability as a parent. Are you yearning for change but feel unable to find the motivation to initiate a plan of action? Are you wishing to be the source of support that your loved ones need but lack direction for how to fulfill this role as a parent or caregiver?

Depression Counsellors

What is the goal of therapy for depression?

Therapy for depression has several major goals. One is to relieve the mental pain of depression, which distorts feeling and thinking so that sufferers cannot see beyond their current state of mind or envision feeling better. Another is to give people the mental tools to recognise and correct the kinds of distorted thinking that turn a problem into a catastrophe and lead to despair. Therapy also teaches people how to process negative emotions in constructive ways, so they have more control over their own emotional reactivity. And it helps people regain the ability to see themselves positively, the motivation to do things, and the capacity for pleasure.

What happens in therapy for depression?

Perhaps most important, no matter the type of therapy, patients form an alliance with the therapist; that connection is therapeutic in itself, plus it becomes an instrument of change. Patients learn to identify and to challenge their own erroneous beliefs and thoughts that amplify the effects of negative experiences. They learn to identify situations in which they are especially vulnerable. And they learn new patterns of thinking and behaving. They may be given “homework” assignments in which they practice their developing skills. In addition, good therapists regularly monitor patients to assess whether and how much the condition is improving.

What therapy types help with depression?

Several types of short-term therapy have been found effective, each targeting one or more areas of dysfunction. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) helps clients challenge their negative thoughts and beliefs, learn new behavioral strategies, and curb reactivity to distressing situations. Behavioural activation (BA) is a form of therapy often used in conjunction with CBT; it focuses on engagement in rewarding activity as a pathway to changing negative feelings and disturbed mood. Another widely used approach is interpersonal therapy (IPT), which targets the social difficulties that both give rise to and get exacerbated by depression. Therapists may combine approaches as needed.

Can therapy for depression be done online?

Studies have found that online therapy can be highly effective for treating depression, although it may be more challenging to build a good therapist-patient alliance on screen than in person—at least at first. However, online therapy can offer considerable advantages. Accessibility and convenience are tops among them. Some people actually find it easier to talk about problems online than in person. While online therapy typically limits visibility of facial expression and body gestures that give important nonverbal cues to a patient’s state of mind, it can give therapists a glimpse into a patient’s world and life, providing information that can be highly useful in guiding therapy.

How effective is therapy for depression?

Many studies show that therapy is highly effective provided that patients complete the prescribed course of therapy, commonly 16 to 20 sessions. Over the long term, it is more effective than medication and the effects are more enduring. As a result, psychotherapy has the power not just to relieve current suffering but to prevent future episodes of the disorder. Therapy reverses the dysfunction in neural circuitry that disposes individuals to a negative view of themselves, the world, and their future and they acquire coping techniques, problem-solving skills, and understanding of their own vulnerabilities that are useful over the course of a lifetime.
