If you recognize the signs of depression in yourself or a loved one, take some time to explore the many treatment options. In most cases, the best approach involves a combination of social support, lifestyle changes, emotional skills building, and counselling services. OCCS specializes with young people from 12 years old going into their late 30s because we have a great understanding of the challenges that characterize their experiences with depression.
The deep woods can be very overwhelming to the point you don’t know where you are, who you are. Finding your best path in this situation can be very challenging and walking in there with Okanagan Clinical has really help me to find my own way to get out of there… Thank you Nicole
Nicole enabled me to see that I am worthy and deserve happiness. Working with her opened my eyes to see the real me, to learn to love myself and forgive myself. That I need not be perfect just be the best me I can be. Nicole brought me and gave me the tools to go from a deep dark place to a bright horizon. Thank you for raising my love for myself Nicole, so I may continue to love me and those I come in contact.
Nicole was extremely easy to open up to. She always made me feel good about myself and gave me the tools to tackle the things that were weighing me down.
