What if you knew that your brain has a built-in way to stop depression from dragging you down? Depression is a natural mind-state that every human knows, but sometimes depression locks onto us and won't let go. If this is happening to you, we can show you how to level the playing field in your favor, without medication. Not all counseling approaches tap into recent neurological research that shows that you can learn to separate from depressed parts of your mind and build new channels within you that are not clogged with depression static. Visit our detailed website or call to learn more about this modern approach to transform your depression and start living the life you've been missing!

A lot of people tend to blame themselves for having depression when they do not get better. They especially feel bad when they do not get enough support from their family members. When you have depression, you can’t just suck it up or ignore it. It’s not that simple. When you have clinical depression, you lose the ability to feel happy. But, through the therapy treatment, you will be able to regain your happiness back!

Depression is a suffering that takes the joy out of life and seems endless and hopeless. It drains your self-esteem. It is a sign of a problem but it makes solving problems more difficult. Sometimes medication can help, but psychotherapy is more effective. There are several approaches to getting out of depression and I would use all of them. We can work to notice and challenge depressing thoughts. We can work with underlying trauma or loss where you may have begun to feel depressed. I can also support you to take the kind of actions that lift your mood. You will learn ways of being more nourished and fulfilled.

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

Life can present you with difficult situations which are hard to process and move past. These challenges are not on your timeline and affect everything. Having worked in many healthcare settings, I am familiar navigating life-changing events and grief. I understand the territory of encountering loss, coping with trauma, the complexity of the medical system and living with illness. These issues can have ripple effects on your relationships, sense of self and perceptions of the world. I know how complex things can get, and I will support you during this process.

We all have disappointments and failed dreams but sometimes depression sneaks up on us and steals the joy from even the small things. It is challenging to find the balance between struggling against versus giving in to the lethargy. I help people explore needs, wants, preferences and obligations in order to identify where to focus the current limited amounts of energy and what is most likely to create additional energy. I provide a safe space where you don't have to put on a fake smile, where you can talk about the things that everyone else is tired of hearing about, and where you can explore what your depression might be trying to tell you.

Depression is a syndrome, not a distinct disorder. There are many paths to and out of depression so no one single approach is likely to be effective with many people. So part of my approach is to do a careful evaluation and to be sure that all psychological and biological bases are covered. For some, the chance to share, discuss, express, be acknowledged is primary. For others, alterations ways of thinking and accepting their internal states and responses may be called for. For yet others, involvement of a spouse or significant other may be the ticket. I do refer people for medication if it seems appropriate, but only when it seems truly necessary and other things seem insufficient.

Depression is a cloud over one's life. For those afflicted with depression, please understand you are not alone. You are not going out of your mind, and the black cloud can be lifted. As a depressed Christian, don't feel ashamed. A sad truth is that many Christians attach spiritual failure to depression. So, they suffer in silence, hoping, and praying for deliverance. For clients wishing to be treated without habit forming drugs, I can assist in finding a reprieve, through Bibliotherapeutic, and God's earthly grown methods. If it is determined that medication is required, I can provide a referral. With both methodologies in place, the mind, body, and soul can be successfully restored.

Depression can result from a traumatic event or loss- or it can be more cyclical and long term in nature. Therefore, there is no one way to treat depression and I have found that working with the whole person, using holistic approaches, thinking outside the box and employing a combination of treatment strategies often works best to bring about a relief from symptoms and to help the individual live with a much more manageable depression or to live a depression free life. If you suffer from depression, one key to recovery is to not let it define who you are or take over how you live your life. Instead, make it one small part of either who you are or what you have been challenged with.

Mary L Lyon, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

6723 Whittier Avenue, Suite 406, McLean, Virginia 22101

Depression is sometimes referred to as the "common cold" of mental health. At its root depression is about loss and loss always in some way has to do with love. In depression we lose a sense of connection to ourselves, to our relationships, to our tasks and even to God. In therapy, I provide a safe environment where you can face your sadness and loss, talk about it and reconnect in a caring place. Healing comes as deep pain is brought into loving and compassionate connection.

Mary Lou Lyon, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

6723 Whittier Avenue, Suite 406, McLean, Virginia 22101

If you are feeling depressed, you are probably feeling disconnected from yourself, your relationships, your tasks and your responsibilities. You may be feeling sad, a sense of dread or a loss of hope in your future. My approach to therapy is to provide a supportive and compassionate place where you can talk about your pain, be understood and find new ways of coping with the difficulties you are facing. Sometimes simply sharing your sadness with another person can put you on the pathway to healing.

We all experience ups and downs in life. This is normal and pat of living life. However, depression is characterized by feelings that are much more intense, let longer, and interfere more intensely with day-to-day functioning and interaction with other people. It is a serious condition that can impact every aspect of your life. It can affect your family relationships, work relationship, and impact negatively on your sense of self worth. Depression is very treatable. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is our primary approach to treating depression and it has been proven to be effective for most forms of depression and even to prevent the occurrence of future depressive episodes.
