When you feel depressed, you want a counselor who can truly understand you. I've been depressed, too, and I know first-hand how it feels: the sense of loss, the loneliness, the darkness, the fatigue, the low self-esteem. It can happen to the best of us. I'll help you find a source of deep strength inside yourself. I'll help you develop more spiritual intimacy and find the peace that passes all understanding. I'll help you find your Authentic Self, your spirit, that part of you who is always connected to God. I'll help you shine, and feel unconditionally loved. I call that grace, and it is yours for the asking. I'll show you how to receive it. You are worth it!

Depression can make it hard to engage with your loved ones, focus on your work, get out of bed, and even enjoy the things you used to. And it's even more frustrating when it's out of your control and perhaps for reasons you're unaware of. In a safe and compassionate space, I can help you understand and identify your triggers for depression and help you develop healthy coping strategies to manage your symptoms.

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.

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.

Depression is a difficult time where we may feel as though there is no hope of ever getting back to feeling motivated and excited about our self and our life again. Depression may be because of a situation in our life that has become painful or it may have to do with our biochemistry being out of balance or it can be because of both. I work with adults and adolescents. When I am with clients who are depressed it is my job to first help the client understand how they can get the short term and long term help they require. It is important to be with a kind, compassionate and experienced therapist that will hear you and help you get out of your isolation and find help and hope again!

A psychoanalytic approach to the treatment of depression creates a space where you may speak freely to your symptoms. This specialized way of speaking allows you to work through these symptoms, alleviating suffering and opening to desire. Desire is the antithesis of depression, and speaking not only allows you to work through symptoms but supports the cultivation of desire. A psychoanalytic approach to depression allows you to address symptoms as they express in thought, feeling and as symptoms in the body.

Depression Counselor

Kalpana Murthy, MBA, MS, LPC, NCC, DCC

Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified EMDR Therapist, Career Coach, Brain Health Coach

Within driving distance of Clarkston

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".
