I specialize in stress management, family conflict, career burn out, depression and anxiety with a focus on creating a safe and trusting environment.
Sometimes all we want is to be heard, to have someone fully present for us. We experience this from family and friends but there is always an underlying judgement or opinion that direct us where we may not want to go. A lot of times talking to a stranger sounds like an intrusive or uncomfortable situation to be in, but I can assure you once you get past the first fearful step, you will learn that it's a form of self care that will stay with you for a lifetime.

I work with clients who live with anxiety, depression , stress, grief, shame and guilt, interpersonal conflict, and those impacted by trauma.
I approach the therapeutic process with the understanding that most of us have experienced some form of struggle or loss. Some of us carry past trauma and anxieties that can get in the way of achieving our goals, and living a rich, meaningful life. Sometimes even if we have the answers and “tools”, we can find it hard to implement long-term change and make difficult decisions. Family and friends may not fully understand what we're going through. We may fear judgment, or worry that our "stuff" would be a burden to others.

Depression Counsellors
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression counsellors in Markham. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
