It can be really challenging to be a young person in today's world, especially as one transitions to greater independence and adulthood. You may ask yourself these questions: Who am I? What is my place in the world? Who do I want to become? How can I manage stress and these expectations? Sometimes you may feel “stuck” and unsure about how to move forward. You may be facing obstacles like the transition to work, college, or university, school and work stress, relationship struggles and loss, oppressive or discriminatory social environments, identity confusion and exploration, as well as anxiety, depression , or experiences of trauma.

I recognize that in life we are sometimes faced with challenges that leave us feeling stuck, unfulfilled, confused, or even hopeless. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression , grief, parenting, or relationships, you don't have to go through it alone. Similarly, transition periods are often very difficult and we may find ourselves feeling overwhelmed and unable to cope. Reaching out for help is a great way to explore coping options. Licensed professionals are highly trained and extremely passionate about the art of helping.

You are someone who has goals! You know who you want to be! You may be in school, just starting out, or very much in the midst of your career. However, right now you can’t seem to find that motivation to execute these goals, whether big or small. You can’t seem to take the first step — so easy but so hard at the same time. Anxiety, depression , self-esteem, confidence, … or whatever is it, is getting in the way. You feel your life is on pause and you can’t pinpoint what is holding you back. Trust me, I’ve been there, and I can tell you that there is a way out!

Life can be challenging and take its toll. Though we're all doing the best we can, given our circumstances and the resources available to us, we all struggle sometimes and often need extra help from others to flourish. If you're reading this, then maybe you're considering therapy as one of those helpful resources for yourself. My one-on-one clinical work with adults experiencing a range of issues – anxiety, depression , trauma and PTSD, interpersonal conflict, major life transitions, and identity-related struggles, among others – has shown me just how helpful therapy can be.

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 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.
