Licensed Professional Counselor
2200 Century Parkway NE, #120, Atlanta, Georgia 30345
Depression My approach to depression is multifaceted. We will utilize conventional talk therapy to help you to gain insight along with Cognitive Therapy to help you to look at your belief system about yourself and the world and to write new scripts for yourself. We will also look at historical, nutritional and environmental factors that may be contributing to your depression. I have found that for many people, addressing nutrition alone can be as powerful if not more powerful that the use of medication. Research over the last several decades has consistently found that, in the long run, psychotherapy is more effective than medication. My goal is to help to teach you skills and a lifest

When we are depressed, we usually feel stuck, helpless, and hopeless. My approach is to help you realize or remember that you have options, and to help you determine what those options are. When we can see our options, we feel better because we feel more in charge of our lives. When we remember our power, we do not need to feel depressed any longer.

Druid Chase Office Park, 2801 Buford Highway NE, Suite 540 (N.Druid Hills, Lenox Rd, 85, 400), Atlanta, Georgia 30329
I have helped clients who have been told they have "treatment resistant depression" and clients who have tried many approaches to reduce depression. The root cause of depression is often upsetting experiences like criticism, rejection, embarrassment, job loss, relationship endings, emotional neglect, childhood abuse, midlife career transitions. These events diminish how we view ourselves and our ability to get what we want in life. Client review: "I have struggled off and on with depression and have seen numerous counselors over the past 15 years. Working with Kalpana, I made significant progress in a relatively short period of time and years later my depression has not returned".

Licensed Professional Counselor

Depression is a peculiar experience. While some people experience it as a sudden and unmistakable thing, more often it creeps in gradually, sucking the joy out of life. It damages our ability to maintain perspective, which is one reason it sometimes seems so overwhelming that it is hard to imagine life without it. Therapy can help identify the sources of depression and empower you to move beyond patterns that keep you stuck and unhappy. My clients often want to change their lives and rid themselves of depression without the use of antidepressant medication, something I support when possible if they are willing to commit to other ways of caring for themselves.

Did you know that the number of people who suffer with depression is similar to the number of people who suffer from seasonal allergies? I bet that is a surprise to you, since we don't hear people talking about depression like they talk about their allergies. People who suffer with depression are not only dealing with the depression but they are often doing it alone. Let us walk with you in this process so that you are not alone. We use a variety of techniques and when necessary, work collaboratively with psychiatrists to proscribe medication. Depression can feel like a heavy blanket - of crying, sadness, lack of motivation, apathy. Let us help you throw off the blanket and start thriving!
