Depression can be a debilitating experience that prevents us from enjoying life. Many people do not realize they are experiencing depression because they feel more tired than "down". It can affect many aspects of daily life before you realize there is a problem. I can help you work through struggles while providing a supporting counseling experience.

Are you feeling down? Do you have difficulty getting a good night sleep? Do you lack the energy or interest to do the things you once found interesting? Depression is a state of being that can impact us physically, psychologically, and spiritually. Depression can be overcome or greatly managed, but it does take work. Psychologically, the work requires you to become increasingly mindful of your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Once we are able to see, we have the option to change.

There are many varieties of depression, from the nearly universal experience of “blues” to soul-crushing, “can’t lift my head out of bed” depression. We help sort out the source of depression, which can include being emotionally “underfed”, to un-grieved losses, trauma experiences, biological disorders, family emotional inheritance, and a lack of connection with your inner source of guidance. After exploring the experience of depression, and the context of a client’s life, we collaboratively shape a plan of treatment, and carefully monitor progress. We coordinate with other care providers, such as physicians.

Depression is more than sadness; it is a chronic sense of isolation, loss of hope, and worthlessness that can impair every area of life. It commonly occurs with other life issues, such as anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, addiction, marital issues, etc. A person's mood is directly affected by their thoughts, and treatment involves learning to recognize toxic thinking patterns as ... learned emotion-command neural pathways of the brain, adapting mindful ways of replacing and shifting to life enriching patterns.

One out of four people will have a depressive episode during their lives. Some suffer from chronic depression. The best approach for chronic depression is medication and talk therapy. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, in particular, can help the client identify, process and alter ideas and thoughts that interfere with adaptive living. Breaking through and restructuring these maladaptive thoughts can alleviate depression. This technique is a collaboration between the therapist and client, and can greatly improve the quality of one's life.

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 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 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.

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.

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

Research has shown that cogntive behavioral therapy is effective for treating depression. Therefore we will collaboratively work to help you address the cognitive, emotional and behavioral factors that may be contributing to or maintaining your depression. Addressing these factors will effectively reduce depressive symptoms and increase hope. Part of our work together will include helping you better understand what depression is, and teaching you to identify and resolve beliefs that you may have developed about yourself, the world and others that often contributes to depression. We will also use an approach called behavioral activation to help you increased energy and activity level.

Licensed Professional Counselor

450 West Broad Street Suite 315, Falls Church, Virginia 22046

It is common to feel down or 'blue' at different points in our lives, when we are overwhelmed with stress, coping with a loss, or dealing with a difficult transition. When depression becomes chronic, it can be seen as a non-verbal way we communicate to ourselves and others around us a deeply personal message, which we may not be consciously aware of: I’m hurting, I feel helpless, I can’t accept something shameful. I work with you to understand what your depression means in the context of your history and how to use it to mobilize your self-awareness into greater alignment with your values, aspirations and goals. You benefit by becoming empowered to act and choose how you want to live.

New Directions Counseling, 150 S. Washington St Suite 303, Falls Church, VA, Falls Church, Virginia 22046

I view depression from existential, cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, social learning, systems, and medical models. I view that shame, low self-concept, and deeper identity and existential issues often do underlie moderate and severe depression, and support SSRI or SNRI interventions for postpartum moms and clients with moderate to severe depression, with recurrence. I employ assessments and CBT homework assignments to help clients reduce their negative cognitive lens, and encourage client resilience through positive coping skills (e.g. exercise), meaning-making, and positive psychology exercises (e.g. gratitude and altruism).

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!

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

1110 Fidler Lane, #1417, Silver Spring, Maryland 20910

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.

Toni Coleman, LCSW, CMC

Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Relationship Coach

6403 Woodsong Court, McLean, Virginia 22101

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 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.

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.

7459 Old Hickory Dr. Ste 105, Mechanicsville, Virginia 23111

Depression can make it hard to get out of bed, to be hopeful, to want to try something new. But depression can be managed. We can talk about medication and the need, or not, for it. We will discuss natural ways to combat depression and we will empower you with a belief in yourself and your abilities. We will work together to help you find hope and a desire to try again tomorrow.

Nedra Voorhies, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Dr. Nedra Voorhies, LPC frequently works with physicians who prescribe anti-depressant medications for clients whose symptoms include sleep impairment, mood disturbance, and eating disruptions. She believes that symptom relief via medications is as important as is exploration of life circumstances that can cause disruptions in emotional well being. "No one should feel shame or fear when medications can decrease depression just as no one feels reluctance in taking insulin when necessary for control of diabetes. Depression can be relieved and not taking the necessary steps for relief, including medication and therapy causes unnecessary suffering."

Feeling isolated, listless, and just plain down? Can't figure out what is going on? Or know what is going on but don't know what to do about it? People telling you to "just cheer up, look at your life it ain't that bad" or "Christians don't get depressed"? Well, they do. I hope that I can help you with your process of healing. I may not have all the answers, but I have an ear. Contact me.
