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.

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 email@example.com.

If you seek therapy for depression, I applaud you. Most do not. However, I believe that while medication can be useful and often needed, I do not think it should be the first step. The first step is seeing your doctor to rule out the possibility of underlying medical issues, such as the thyroid, PCOS, low B12, sleep disorders, etc. Then we need to look at the things you are telling yourself. Many times we say things that are simply not true and that leads to depression.

The word "depression" describes many feelings. You may be on the severe end—feeling like life isn’t worth living, not wanting to get out of bed, or not feeling like taking care of yourself. Or you may be on the mild end—feeling less energetic, experiencing lasting irritability, or feeling like you just want to be left alone. Maybe you are somewhere in between. Regardless, depression doesn't have to be a life sentence. It’s treatable. As an experienced therapist trained in the treatment of depression, I can help you identify underlying causes, work with you to develop a results-focused plan, and get you on a path to the life you want to be living. 407-699-5824
