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 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.

Licensed Professional Counselor, Career Coach, Certified EMDR Therapist

Druid Chase Office Park, 2801 Buford Highway NE, Suite 540 (N.Druid Hills, Lenox Rd, 85, 400), Atlanta, GA 30329

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".

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Research shows that the most effective treatment for depression is psychotherapy. Depression can range from feeling down to major symptoms such as having trouble even getting out of bed or contemplating suicide (if you have suicidal thoughts or plans, call the National Suicide Prevention Line at 1-800-273-8255). Online counseling is effective for depression because it is easy to access: you can start treatment without even leaving the house.

Sheri Hardin, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within Driving Distance of Atlanta, GA

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.

John Ballew, MS, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

537 Linwood Ave., NE, Atlanta, GA 30306

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.

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....

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.

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Grey Matters International, Inc. and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D. handles depression and other emotional disorders in a very unique way. Most of therapy or counseling processes utilize validation, unconditional positive regard, and reframing as common techniques to get someone to heal from their depression. Though this can be helpful, it rarely fixes the core problem behind it and for tough cases we then refer them usually to a psychiatrist for medication which can have tons of side effects. Instead, why not try a natural and arguably more effective way to not just change your mind, but change the brain--where the depression is rooted. Contact us at kevin@kevinflemingphd.com.

Terry Thompson Horn, MA

Licensed Professional Counselor

2200 Century Parkway NE, #120, Atlanta, GA 30345

Depression My approach to depression is multifaceted. We will utilize conventional talk therapy to help you to gain insight along with Cognitive Therapy to help you to look at your belief system about yourself and the world and to write new scripts for yourself. We will also look at historical, nutritional and environmental factors that may be contributing to your depression. I have found that for many people, addressing nutrition alone can be as powerful if not more powerful that the use of medication. Research over the last several decades has consistently found that, in the long run, psychotherapy is more effective than medication. My goal is to help to teach you skills and a lifest
