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.

When depressed we lack the energy and motivation to care for ourselves as if we are undeserving or incapable of loving ourselves. Often, depression signifies that we feel hopeless and helpless to be happy with ourselves and/or create a happier life for ourselves. The answer lay with mourning the loss of what we mistakenly believed was indispensable to looking ahead with hopeful optimism. Our relationship will provide the support to help you let go of these self limiting beliefs, while encouraging you and guiding you to develop your inner resources, and take advantage of resources available to you.

I have found that people who experience some form of depression respond quite positively to a solution focused or cognitive behavioral approach. Instead of a consistent focus on what makes you depressed, we explore those times where you feel better and more alive. We put the spotlight on that in order to learn how do experience that state more often. I also coordinate with a psychopharmacologist if medication is indicated as well.
John Gerson, Ph.D.

Depression is often a product of frustration and anger becoming jammed up within the self; as it continues, feelings of hopeless and helplessness can be generated and turn into a story that we can create when we're depressed in which we see ourselves as victims and without power. Depression may also reflect life style issues, notably sleep deprivation and lack of exercise. Medical issues also need to be evaluated with regard to their influence on mood. Depression can be usefully seen in behavioral terms as a "call for action." I will compassionately hold your depressed feelings with you, and explore behaviors to alleviate your frustration, particularly specific to effective self-expression.

If you’re struggling with depression, you may feel overwhelmingly sad, lacking the energy to do the simplest things, and disconnected from others. But you don’t have to face depression alone. The process of therapy can provide the support and guidance you need to begin to heal. I help my clients access their innate strengths and learn to trust the wisdom of their emotions. As you develop coping strategies to navigate painful feelings, you will gain a new sense of your power and competency. Therapy provides the opportunity to learn to connect with those you love in healthier ways, to discover an enhanced sense of well-being, and to live more fully in the present moment.

Depression is generally considered a reaction to physical or psychological stress, and any number of stressors can lead to depressive symptoms. These can include personality, environmental, or biomedical factors, i.e. chemical imbalances in the brain, trauma, and/or situational factors. Sometimes illness or certain drugs (including alcohol, prescribed medications, etc.) as well as improper diet and nutrition contribute to depression. Treatment includes identifying and understanding the underpinnings and circumstances of your depression (insight), learning helpful coping skills, and getting extra support so you can feel better and recover.

Understanding depression as anger at past events can help clients to understand and gain incite as to why they no longer care about life in the present moment. Often anxiety accompanies depression as worry about the future makes thoughts overactive. By using acceptance and commitment along with day to day wellness methods, we can work together to transition you back into looking forward to living your life in the moment as best as we all can. It is not an easy task to manage our lives successfully but staying stuck will only bring more regret.

I have great respect for people who are struggling in their life with an overall lack of satisfaction and motivation. I will help you identify those “triggers” that cause your low mood, and to develop coping skills to help you feel better. My clients report that they are able to sense and identify mood fluctuations as a result of our counseling sessions. Clients that are on medication can expect a team approach to their wellness, as I consult with physicians. If you are reading this right now, you or someone you care about is struggling with the ability to sustain important relationships. If so, you can call or email me to determine if counseling is right for you.

Depression can result in feelings of loss of energy and a loss of interest in life, giving up and shutting down, and intense self-recrimination. It’s not so easy to just snap out of it. The problem is often caused by a sense of hyper-responsibility developed as an effort to care for others. The result is a painful and disabling guilt and blame that makes one want to give up. Interaction with an empathic and supportive therapist can help to interrupt this downward cycle by questioning the self-attack, and understanding what demands you have put on yourself that you need to let go of. My approach is designed to understand the cause of the situation without leaving you stuck in the past, and underst....

Depression is often a very debilitating condition that many people live with. It keeps us from living the vital, healthy, whole lives we are meant to live. Coming to understand the underlying causes of depression (often associated with anxiety) is a important part of my work. Approaching the depressed client with compassion,promoting healing and resolution, we can move through the pain and disempowerment to a re-emergence of life and energy.

Depression is one of the most widespread emotional problems faced by people in today's society, imposing a significant toll on their personal lives, family lives, and work lives. Many people burdened by depression regard it as a sign of weakness and suffer with it privately and in silence. Through supportive and empathic dialogue I have helped many people achieve significant relief, which then improves the quality of their relationships as well as their own states of mind. In those cases that warrant it, and with the full knowledge and consent of the client, I also provide referrals for psychiatric medication, to be used in conjunction with verbal psychotherapy.

While depression is one of the most commonly diagnosed mental illnesses, individuals suffering from depression can often remain undiagnosed for years. The reason? They simply may not recognize that their irritability, sadness or anger is actually stemming from depression. Oftentimes, friends, family members, or even the sufferer himself may wonder, “why can’t I just snap out of it?” or “maybe it’s all in my head.” Know that depression is real, the result of a chemical imbalance in the brain. People who are clinically depressed cannot simply will themselves to feel better or just “snap out of it.” The good news is that with effective treatment, you can begin to feel better in 2-3 weeks.

Depression is anger turned onto the self from underlying feelings of hurt, pain and anger. I like to encourage ego supportive and expressive therapy, because it seems to be the best way of helping to lift the symptoms which can feel as awful as the depression itself. In many situations talking about the “stuff” with a therapist, directly confronts the inner conflict and turmoil that tends to guide and rule a person's life prior to treatment.

There is hope if you are unable to enjoy the things that used to give you pleasure or if you have a sense of sadnesss or hopelessness that just won't go away. We all feel sad from time to time, but depression is when this goes on over time and can affect all areas of your life and even lead to you feeling like giving up on life. Together, we can look at what is going on and explore ways (through discussion, actions and possibly involving a physician) to help you back to where you would want to be - where you can experience a sense of wholeness and peace. Christopher can help you on that journey.
