When feeling stressed, anxious, or depressed , finding meaning could be a key component to help us cope. Through rationalization and acceptance there is room to learn about emotions, relationships, engagement, boundaries, resilience, recovery, and accomplishments. My goal is to help you feel empowered throughout your journey, while integrating your personal goals and strengths into your everyday life. Whether it be regulating emotions, thoughts or behaviours, I am committed to practicing a compassionate and non-judgmental approach where you are the author of your story.

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 Downtown, Toronto. 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.
