We offer effective skills building interventions against depression. This condition cripples teens, adults, everyone. It robs people's desire to live and spend time with others. Physical ailments are easy to recognize and accept, but depression takes different forms. Children and teens become angry and violent, adults isolate themselves; sometimes many turn to alcohol or drugs. Experience the difference! Reclaim your happiness! Join us and learn how to develop effective skills against depression.

People going through a depression often feel lonely, isolated and very frightened. They worry that their situation will never improve and that they are destined to a bleak and empty existence. Because they are feeling so badly, they do not see any options or possibilities for themselves and are convinced that the good things in life are not for them. Counseling is an opportunity to renew hope and to envision possibilities.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

It is a myth that "some people are just born to be negative". You can begin to think positively. Healthy eating habits, exercise, psychotherapy and medication (if needed) is a healthy strategy. Every day is a new day to "begin anew". Every day you can try to re-invent yourself. Depression is a very personal struggle, and at times the temptation may be to give in to the whirlwind of sad feelings. Every day is a new day to "begin anew".

If you find yourself sad, irritable and tearful you may be depressed. Depression can feel like you have no energy and cannot enjoy people and things as much as you have in the past. Frequently depression can be caused by something going on in your life, after a loss or failure or just because. In therapy we quickly learn to qualify the type of depression you have, learn to cope with the causes and master ways to re-earn your quality of life. Depression can be one of the most treatable disorders. I have extensive experience in helping depressed clients heal. Depression can make you feel alone and hopeless and this does not have to be you.

When clients come to me for help with depression, I want to hear about their most sincere intention. I invite them to go to that place within themselves and say what it is that they are really wanting. This gives me an idea of what their parameters are and what's possible. I like to ask, “What’s asking for attention in your life right now?” My assumption is that they are yearning for inner peace and a loving heart. All of us sense a yearning for existence or a looking for what will feel more at home and at peace. This thought process keeps us energized in hope and less in the depths of despair.

Depression is an extremely debilitating illness for many, and the approach I take helps clients examine their current thought patterns that may be contributing to the depression. My approach is also one which focuses on the strength of the therapeutic relationship and alliance, and incorporates principles of mindfulness. Depression can often occur because of unresolved issues of the past, or because we have not taken the time to truly explore our feelings. Within therapy, we will be able to carefully look at what may be holding you back from feeling better. There is no judgement, and in this way it helps us feel safe to truly explore our deepest thoughts and feelings.

Depression, usually becomes recognized when symptoms like: 1)Changes in appetite and sleep, 2)Low energy, 3)Loss of interest in physical intimacy and other previously enjoyed interests, 4)Pervasive sadness and tearfulness, and 5)Difficulty initiating and/or sustaining tasks make every-day living challenging at best and unmanageable at worst. Cognitive-behavioral counseling is the therapeutic intervention of choice which can include such interventions as the discussion of different coping skills, stress management training, reframing negative thoughts into more positive ones, and sometimes medication. The good news is that Depression is highly treatable with a favorable prognosis!

I utilize a cognitive-behavioral therapy approach that focuses on the thought patterns that keep clients stuck in their depression. Many times we get trapped into thinking there is no hope. Thus in therapy I offer my clients empowering tools that motivate them to believe and have faith in themselves, accomplish their goals and desires, and have better relationships with the people in their lives that support them.
