Depression is one of the most common mental health issues experienced by individuals. The symptoms of depression can range from sadness, lack of motivation, difficulty with self-esteem, change in appetite and hopelessness. In therapy my goal is to help clients identify ways to manage and cope with their symptoms while working towards healthy ways to stabilize their mood and increase and maintain happiness.

I believe that depression is anger turned inward. I would use psycotherapy to delve into the reasons for the anger. Where did it originate and discuss methods to use on a daily basis to resolve this anger through a spiritual life and gratitudes. I would also take a family history and have the patient get a medical exam to identify the possiblity of it being a genetic disorder or physical malady. Concurring with the medical doctor or naturopath I would discuss methods to use through diet and exercise, meditation and social outlets to deal on a daily basis with the depression.

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.

My approach to depression depends on what is causing the depression. I have found that it can be a chemical imbalance, situational, or something else. Also if there is a history of depression in the family it may contribute to what approach I take toward working with that person. The end result is the same though = depression. Hearing their story and what they are experiencing is the first place to start in their journey to healing. Depression doesn't have to rule your life; it's finding what works best for you.
