Depression varies from person to person but there are common signs and symptoms. If you are feeling overwhelmed, have a loss of energy, feel hopeless, have anger and irritability you could be suffering from depression. The most important thing to do to overcome depression is ask for help. Bridgette understands this can be difficult to do so she strives to offer each client an empathic ear and offer solutions to help them step out of their depression and regain their love for life.

Depression is more than feeling sad. Depression can hit at various times and for many reasons. When you are not able to "snap out" of feeling down, no matter what may be happening around you, it is likely time to contact a counselor. Not opposed to medication, but a proponent of getting to the root of the problem, I advocate for therapy as a first step, and depending on the level of depression, we will discuss the pros and cons of exploring alternate routes. Renewed peace and joy is always my goal with clients. Countless have attested to feeling like "themselves" once they made the difficult, but rewarding decision to connect with a Licensed Professional.

In my practice I counsel patients experiencing Reactive Depression. The experience of Reactive Repression is a matter of degree. It can be fleeting, episodic, or chronic, and usually is a reaction to an emotionally charged stressful change in their lives, or a trauma, e.g. relationship breakups, medical issues, job lost, etc. as well as emotionally traumatic events from earlier years. Physiological factors can be responsible for depression. If I suspect this I would recommend a medical consultation. I primarily utilize psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral techniques when working with depression.

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".

I believe if you’re battling depression, you could be “de-pressing” important thoughts and feelings – or at least attempting to. One cure for depression is “ex-pression.” I can help you learn ways to express yourself in ways that will dissipate your depression. Your depression may also be a sign that you aren’t living the life you want to live. I can help you discover and create that life – a life free of paralyzing depression. Contact me today to learn to how.

Depression can rob you of joy, peace, energy, health, and even relationships. It can leave you not wanting to get out of bed in the morning and not enjoying pleasurable activities you have enjoyed in the past. If you have suffered under depression for many years, you may not even be aware that you are depressed, because you are so used to it. Depression may seem like a usual condition to you. By addressing the underlying causes with a professional, you can progress and move forward to a place that is less heavy feeling, more hopeful, and more full of life.

Depression can range from mild to severe. Depression can be a result of many factors or a combination of factors. It is important to first understand the severity of the depression and take the necessary steps to insure the safety of the client. Depression can be a symptom that says something is going on in your life that needs to be addressed. I believe that treating the symptom without addressing the underlying issue does a disservice to the client.

Did you know that depression is really typically about anger? The 2 are interwoven. If you think of your emotions like the layers of a volcano. The volcano may be closed and the anger is inside but you feel depressed. So addressing the underlying anger helps greatly. There are things that you can do to increase your serotonin levels other than medication but sometimes medication is needed as an adjunct to therapy.
