Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Not all 'depression' looks the same. For some people, it can be feeling endlessly tired despite sleeping too much, a change in weight, and a seemingly viscous cycle of negative thoughts that trigger a low sense of self esteem and self worth. For others, it can be a heaviness or sense of sadness that lasts most of the time and involves a loss of interest in the things that once brought you joy. My approach to treating depression relies heavily on the scientifically supported methods of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy that can help you learn new skills to develop healthier ways to think that promote feeling better and decrease the frequency and intensity of the depression.

If you have a pulse and a heart, you have been sad. Using the science of happiness rather than standard interventions for depression we focus on increasing positive emotion, engagement, and meaning rather than directly targeting depressive symptoms. In using these interventions with clients I have noted the effects of these interventions in a variety of settings. In informal and clinical settings these interventions have commonly been reported to me and referred to as “life-changing.”

Depression is a feeling that can feel incredibly heavy to hold. Sometimes we experience challenging life events that leave us feeling much sadness, grief, inner pain and lack of joy, which interfere with our daily functioning. That is called depression. With Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (challenging unhelpful thoughts) and psychodynamic modalities, I can help you work through that sadness, heaviness and pain, so that you may begin the journey of healing work. This is the first step towards holding the sadness, addressing yourself in a safe space so we can slowly help you process and shift to start feeling lighter and start seeing the sunshine and tasting the small joys in everyday life.

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

My goal with clients who suffer from depression is to get you up and going again so you can enjoy your life more, and experience greater meaning and satisfaction. Depression can make a person feel exhausted and gloomy, and it tends to make people think things will never get better. But depression is one of the most treatable emotional disorders. I am committed to supporting my depressed patients to become "formerly depressed," and to have some energy again, to have something to look forward to, to feel like life is meaningful again.

The benefits of therapy for depression are indisputable, since treatment offers the important opportunity to be deeply understood and affirmed. Depression is one of the most frequently cited reasons for seeking treatment. It's also highly amenable to treatment. In addition to helping you understand what lies behind your depression, we'll establish a good strong working relationship which is an important bulwark against future depression and supports the growing self as it strives toward health.

I treat depression in adults, adolescents and children using an integrative approach that combines psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral therapies, tailoring treatment to each unique individual. Depression, even the most severe cases, is a highly treatable disorder. As with many illnesses, the earlier that treatment can begin, the more effective it is and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented. Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence.

In sessions, we will explore the ways in which your symptoms are affected by your relationships, including family and friends. You are given the opportunity to focus on the meaningful relationships in your life and how they may be contributing to your symptoms of depression. As these relationships are developed or improved, inter-personal connection is strengthened. This sense of support or emotional connection proves critical in alleviating depression. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is used to target negative thoughts, emotions, and actions that contribute to your depression. You will learn modulated, positive, and effective emotional responses to whatever life brings your way.

Depression is anger turned inward or against yourself. As anger builds within, an individual has three choices: To channel the anger energy assertively by expressing the feelings attached to the situations causing one to feel depressed; to express the anger through outbursts that can be very destructive to the self and others; to internalize the anger and become more depressed and less functional with time. My job is to enable you to learn how to identify and express feelings that are causing you to feel depressed. The next step is to change behaviors associated with your feelings freeing you from depressive thoughts and feelings.

Often depression is held in place by thoughts and beliefs that suck the hope out of one's life. Therapy is effective in finding the source of the problem and providing tools for intercepting and changing the problematic thought patterns. Medication may or may not be needed to get the process started. When one gains the ability to envision a rewarding life, it often ends the cycle of depression.

Sometimes it seems as if we carry the world on our shoulders. We feel disconnected, lonely, profoundly sad. Even if some of us have been using medications to lighten the burden, they don’t seem to work that well, or have lost their initial effect of relief. It’s hard to believe but there are ways to crawl, climb, or even jump out of the pit of sorrow. Over 25 years as a mental health counselor with two PhDs and extensive training, I have been able to offer many individuals just like you different ways of modifying and even leavening their depression. It’s a challenge for both of us but I’m willing to take it on if you are.
