Depression can be driven by a multitude of factors including genetics, biochemical abnormalities, trauma, environmental, family of origin, relationships, and lifestyle choices. If you are struggling with depression, you are not alone and we can help. Even if you have a genetic predisposition for it, or traumatic experiences in your life that have shaped your depression, there are practical things that can be done to help you get better.

When working with a therapist, you will be able to tailor a support plan for your needs and personality. Therapy can help you explore the contributing factors to depression, identify things that help to reduce depression, and adopt coping skills. Examples of coping skills include engaging in relationships, exercising, and eating a healthy diet. If you continue to be stuck a therapist can help you decide if a referral to a psychiatrist for medication could be warranted. We can also explore challenges in your thinking process around unhelpful thoughts and distorted perceptions that could be feeding your view of yourself, circumstances, and the world around you.

We believe in taking a holistic approach to treating depression. We want to work with you at your pace to help you achieve your goals.
