My ideal client is someone who is ready for change, who actively seeks growth and healing. They may be struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, or life transitions. They're open to exploring their thoughts and feelings, even the uncomfortable ones. They crave a safe space where they can be truly heard and understood, without judgment. Ultimately, my ideal client seeks a deeper understanding of themselves, a stronger sense of purpose, and tools to navigate life's challenges with resilience and confidence.

It seems like no one truly understands how challenging it is to walk the line between two cultures. On one side, there's your family's unique dynamics, expectations, and responsibilities. On the other, the Western norms for work, dating, parenting, and living. The combination creates a tremendous amount of stress, leaving you feeling down, anxious, depressed, and full of guilt. You know you need help setting healthy boundaries, and focusing on self-care, but you need someone who understands the challenges associated with adopting a new culture and society while staying connected and grounded with your own cultural values.

Anxiety, depression, PTSD, OCD: a common thread in all of these issues is trauma. Whether it's a high-conflict or abusive relationship, a life-threatening event, unresolved childhood trauma, a painful social situation, or a chaotic world, trauma can have a deep & enduring impact. Many people choose trauma informed therapy to access a rich & comprehensive roadmap for cultivating inner peace, self-confidence, personal efficacy, & a positive outlook on life in the wake of loss, adversity, & tragedy. Research indicates that with concerted effort the vast majority of trauma survivors can experience significant post traumatic growth.

Clarity is my hope for each person I see, whether we use Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy, Narrative approaches, EMDR, Mindfulness, yoga, polyvagal theory, or creative arts expression. Regardless if your struggle is with depression, anxiety, an eating disorder, or trauma, clarity means a better awareness and understanding of yourself in the current situation. Knowing yourself allows you to make choices best for you, consciously. It can be challenging to unravel and understand all of the often conflicting messages we hear and give ourselves, but it is crucial. This is the work I will support and guide you in.

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.
