Are you experiencing overwhelming feelings of sadness or grief?
Are you feeling worthlessness, despair, guilt or helplessness?
Are you sleeping or eating more or less than usual?
Are you losing interest in sex?

If you are feeling some or many of these symptoms on a regular basis, you may be experiencing depression.
How is depression treated?
Depression is the most treatable of mental illnesses. Most people who suffer from depression are helped by psychological counselling.
Many people who are depressed wait too long to seek treatment — or if they feel too helpless, they may not seek treatment at all. They may not realize that they have a readily treatable condition, or they may be worried about getting help because of the negative attitudes held by society towards this type of illness.
Therapy helps people who are depressed make changes both internally and externally in their lives. I can help you treat your depression through a caring, concerned approach that will help you to alleviate your depression through supportive counselling, easing the pain of depression and addressing feelings of hopelessness and helplessness.
Therapy can help you make the journey from despair to happiness. Let’s start your journey together ––contact me now.
