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.

Depression is approached in a highly individualized manner--taking into account the client's background, personality factors, religious or spiritual beliefs, and their support system. This approach may include subconscious, unconscious, pre-conscious, &/or conscious techniques. This approach may also involve taking into account personality & emotional factors that are specific to the client. Most importantly, this approach takes into account the use of positive and negative triggers that can prevent an explosive reaction in the first place. It's a highly pro-active, pre-emptive approach. Depression & Anxiety are Specialties at our practice.

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.

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".

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.

All of us feel some degree of depression at some time in our life. It is a normal feeling. But sometimes depression becomes something bigger, and causes pain. Depression is a complicated experience that involves our thinking processes, our emotional experience and our physical functioning. Treatment for depression often involves addressing each of these domains. I offer a wealth of experience in using many different methods of psychotherapy to help people with depression. Medication often offers some relief of symptoms, but medication does not address the underlying causes of depression, which is the work of psychotherapy, the work I do.

Feeling disinterested, unmotivated, lonely and stuck can spiral down into problems at work, absenteeism, and interpersonal conflicts; then spiral further into disconnection, complete lack of interest in people, place and things, spontaneous uncontrollable crying and excessive sleep. I can help you pull yourself up out of the quicksand that is depression. With compassion, understanding, education, encouragement and collaboration hope can be restored.

While we all have the experience of feeling "down in the dumps" or "bummed out", or just "having a bad day", depression goes and hurts deeper than that. Clinical depression is prevalent in our society today. It has been called "the common cold of mental illness". The experience of depression can seem overwhelming, even crushing, but the good news is that it is very treatable. Psychotherapy and medication are very effective in treating clinical depression, and people can come through the depression to experience joy in life.

When we are depressed, we usually feel stuck, helpless, and hopeless. My approach is to help you realize or remember that you have options, and to help you determine what those options are. When we can see our options, we feel better because we feel more in charge of our lives. When we remember our power, we do not need to feel depressed any longer.
