“In the middle of the journey of our life I came to myself within the dark wood where the straight way was lost”


A silent, and yet powerful killer of the soul. A dark night of the soul that never ends. Depression ranges in severity from a very low level of functioning, like not being able to get out of bed or do routine daily functions, to a feeling of sadness that just stays with you and feels like it won’t lift. Either way, depression is more evident in our society than ever before with adults and children alike.

Symptoms of depression or a depressive disorder are as follows:

  • Persistant sad, anxious, or “empty” mood
  • Feelings of hopelessness, pessimism
  • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, helplessness
  • Loss of interest or pleasure in hobbies and activities
  • Decreased energy and fatigue
  • Difficulty concentrating, remembering, and making decisions
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Appetite and weight changes
  • Thoughts of death and suicide, suicide attempts
  • Restlessness and irritability
  • Physical symptoms emerging

Depression untreated can lead to many physical manifestations in one’s body. The depression is a voice to underlying issues from either current day situations, or past situations of trauma and abuse that have not been dealt with. My goal is to provide a safe, honest and nurtuting environment in which one can begin to explore the symptoms, unveiling the root issues over time and come alongside you to help you heal.

In our therapy sessions we will also take a look at the use of psychotropic drugs and their need.  Medication certainly has its place in the treatment of depression, but changing a few things in a diet can also have a significant impact on healing.   I believe in a collaborative approach to these types of issues, thus ensuring a safe and trusted space where the client feels like they can have a voice and an opinion.
