My approach to treating depression is not one that focuses solely on one treatment technique (e.g., CBT or Interpersonal Therapy);instead, depression is examined in terms of the biological, psychological, social and cultural factors that may be contributing to reduced functioning. In that way, treatment decisions are more apt to be effective for each individual.

I have worked with clients with depression for over a decade. Depression is not a one size fits all; everyone with depression experiences their symptoms differently. When working with clients I help them to better understand their depressive symptoms and teach them the necessary skills to help cope with and overcome their depression. I frequently use cognitive and behavioral and emotion focused therapy.

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....

Depression is one of the most common mental health challenges that people struggle with. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) 350 million people worldwide suffer from depression. Fortunately, in many cases, with the assistance of a mental health professional, people can be empowered to overcome their natural tendency to feel depressed. I help clients explore patterns that lead them down the road to depression and help them replace negative thought patterns with healthier ones.

Depressive symptoms can disrupt every aspect of your life making it hard for you to feel motivated to complete day to day activities or even interact with loved ones and friends. Depression can cause a ripple effect taking a toll not only on you but also others in your life that you hold dear. My approach to helping my clients manage their depressive symptoms is utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT); discussing your cognitive distortions or irrational thinking that can keep you in your depression; and helping you developing healthy coping skills to help you manage your depressive symptoms.

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 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.

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
