We work with clients who experience long term as well as situational depression. We understand that you need more than someone who will tell you to "be more active and you'll feel better" or "think positive". Although these methods are effective, we will assist you in resolving your depression in order to move to become the more functioning person you want to be.

Depression is serious and often goes untreated in children and teens because the signs can look different than those we associate with adult depression. Symptoms might be overlooked or minimized as part of growing up or something that will pass with time. Up to 15% of children and adolescents have symptoms of depression at any given time. Depression has a negative impact on a child’s development, school performance, and relationships. Untreated, it can lead to unhealthy and dysfunctional patterns of coping such as withdrawal, isolation, bullying, delinquency, drug use, promiscuity, self-injury, or self-destruction. The good news is that DEPRESSION IS TREATABLE! Child/teen Therapy is effective....

My approach to depression counseling is simple and basic for a sometimes complicated issue. We will work on digging into where the depression stems and use common sense and biblical approaches to helping get through the depression. I do believe that there is a time and place for medication, but hopefully the counseling will begin to alleviate the need for some if not all medications.

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".

When depression hits, you may discover that feelings of despair, loneliness, and hopelessness cloud your ability to function. You feel burdened and stalled. I help clients suffering from depression by providing an accepting, safe place to process feelings and clarify your view of yourself. Together, we establish reachable goals and promote your wellbeing by incorporating practices of authenticity, self-compassion, and courage into our work together. I find that those who seek treatment for feelings of depression come to experience themselves more truly as they begin living with hope. “You are imperfect, you are wired for struggle, but you are worthy of love and belonging.” - Brene Brown

It is normal for people to go through periods of life where they are feeling "down" or low in energy. Sometimes there are events and circumstances that create this mood, but sometimes it comes without any rhyme or reason. Whether stemming from a traumatic life event or not, feeling depressed is not something that you need to feel guilty or ashamed of, it is something to overcome and grow stronger from. You do not have to overcome these negative thoughts and feelings alone. I provide a place for you to come and be heard, a place to share the pain that you are going through and your story, a place to share your heart. I will help carry your burdens until you get to a place of strength.

In the past, most families have had the stability of living in one place with resources such as grandparents and lifelong friends. Now, we move, change jobs, and may have blended or single parent families. Our resources may no longer be there for us. Life's challenges can make us feel powerless, frustrated, depressed and isolated. A safe, comfortable place to talk and journey together will ultimately lead to a more fulfilling and happier life.

I believe it is important to look at a person's depression through the lens of family history and present life difficulties. Cognitive Behavior therapy has proven to be as effective as medication in many cases. Unresolved trauma can also be a contributing factor as well. I believe in looking at the full picture when trying it help a client. The anxiety that accompanies depression also should be addressed.
