My work as a clinical psychologist has given me the opportunity to meet some amazing, courageous people. It's very hard to acknowledge that we may need to face and address painful issues in order to move forward in our lives. I work with adults (18+) who are interested in dealing with challenges ranging from anxiety and depression to Post Traumatic Stress disorder and addictions. My chief joy as a psychologist is to collaborate with my patients and assist them to make real and lasting changes in how they live their lives. Life is not easy, but feeling strong and whole helps us deal with the demands we may encounter.

In 30 years of practice, my work has centered on those struggling with anxiety and depression , I have worked with people suffering with seasonal depression and have developed a model based on awareness and work, as central to understanding and healing.
In 35 years as a practicing psychotherapist I have found the truest way of knowing yourself, relieving the stresses of everyday life and finding true happiness, is through relationship.We tend to think that we should know how to conduct ourselves in relationship and that it should come naturally. Nothing could be further from the truth. Relationship like many other things is a learned skill, much of which depends on your ability to manage your emotions, and know yourself fully, this is where psychotherapy comes in.

Accepting NEW clients. I am a registered psychotherapist with a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology. I have been working in mental health for over 20 years supporting individuals struggling with depression , anxiety, trauma, family issues, grief, as well as those who feel stressed or “stuck.” We are all unique, so over the years, I have developed a background in different counselling approaches because there is no one-size-fits-all solution for everyone. I use new, cutting-edge treatments informed by neuroscience, like EMDR and Brainspotting. I also practice more traditional “talk” therapies, like CBT.

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.
