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.

My approach to depression counseling is simple and basic for a sometimes complicated issue.

The root cause of depression is often upsetting experiences like criticism, rejection, embarrassment, job loss, relationship endings, emotional neglect, childhood abuse, midlife career transitions.

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".

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.
