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.

One out of 10 people in America suffer with depression and the majority of those suffering with depression are women. Those that struggle with depression may not receive the understanding and support from family and friends that is so desperately needed. This support is essential given that depression is the leading cause of disability. So many people with depression go untreated which is tragic given 80 to 90 percent report feeling better after just a few weeks of treatment.

Depression is a peculiar experience. While some people experience it as a sudden and unmistakable thing, more often it creeps in gradually, sucking the joy out of life. It damages our ability to maintain perspective, which is one reason it sometimes seems so overwhelming that it is hard to imagine life without it. Therapy can help identify the sources of depression and empower you to move beyond patterns that keep you stuck and unhappy. My clients often want to change their lives and rid themselves of depression without the use of antidepressant medication, something I support when possible if they are willing to commit to other ways of caring for themselves.

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 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.

Did you know that the number of people who suffer with depression is similar to the number of people who suffer from seasonal allergies? I bet that is a surprise to you, since we don't hear people talking about depression like they talk about their allergies. People who suffer with depression are not only dealing with the depression but they are often doing it alone. Let us walk with you in this process so that you are not alone. We use a variety of techniques and when necessary, work collaboratively with psychiatrists to proscribe medication. Depression can feel like a heavy blanket - of crying, sadness, lack of motivation, apathy. Let us help you throw off the blanket and start thriving!

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".

Depression and Substance Abuse Most times, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) focuses on studying your thought patterns looking for negative perceptions of yourself, the world around you and your view of it. Many times chances are good that these will be flawed perceptions called negative cognitive distortions. These distortions cause dim lenses that change the way you view the whole world. Some cognitive distortions include: All-or-nothing thinking: Perceiving situations in absolute, black-and-white categories. Overgeneralization: Viewing a recent, negative event as a never-ending pattern of defeat.
