It is normal for people to go through periods of life where they are feeling "down" or low in energy. Sometimes there are events and circumstances that create this mood, but sometimes it comes without any rhyme or reason. Whether stemming from a traumatic life event or not, feeling depressed is not something that you need to feel guilty or ashamed of, it is something to overcome and grow stronger from. You do not have to overcome these negative thoughts and feelings alone. I provide a place for you to come and be heard, a place to share the pain that you are going through and your story, a place to share your heart. I will help carry your burdens until you get to a place of strength.

While depression can often be tied to brain chemistry that is out of balance, I often wonder if brain chemistry sometimes becomes imbalanced because of the circumstances of life. Sometimes it seems clients go through a very difficult time in life and suffer from depression as a result. There are certainly times it is advantageous to seek medical consultation for help with getting the brain chemistry in balance but there are also times when psychotherapy can bring great relief on its own and certainly it is best to have psychotherapy along with medication if the medication route is taken. My work with depressed clients utilizes a host of tools that can bring great relief.

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

Licensed Professional Counselor, Career Coach, Certified EMDR Therapist
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".
