Psychotherapy treats depression by helping people to: • Understand the behaviors, emotions, and ideas that contribute to his or her depression • Understand and identify the life problems or events -- like a major illness, a death in the family, a loss of a job or a divorce -- that contribute to their depression and help them understand which aspects of those problems they may be able to solve or improve • Restructure ways of thinking, negative attributes and attitudes someone has about himself, and ways in which faulty thinking may perpetuate depression • Regain a sense of control and pleasure in life • Learn coping techniques and problem-solving skills (WEBMD)

Depression and anxiety are the two most diagnosed psychological conditions in our Western world. The depressed clients who I have successfully treated came to me with a deep frustration in their souls.My approach is a multi-pronged approach. I work holistically to bring awareness to physical, biological and nutritional issues that might be contributing to the problem. Concurrently, In our psychotherapeutic work we develop tools to explore and express the unique and authentic life that each client so richly deserves. The soul's wishes can be expressed when self-limiting patterns are released and a more joyful life follows.

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.
