Licensed Professional Counselor

Every individual has an inborn level of tolerance for the kinds of challenges that life throws at us. When that level of tolerance is exceeded for whatever reasons, depression is the most common outcome. Research has clearly demonstrated that, for most people, a combination of anti-depressant medication and psychotherapy produces the most relief from depressive symptoms. I will work with you to determine both the severity and the possible causes of your depression. It is only then that we can begin your healing process.

If you're frustrated by feeling great one minute and then overwhelmed the next, you may be struggling with depression. I do work with people on medication, but if you're interested in a pill to solve your depression this isn't the place. At the Sprout Family Clinic we have successfully helped clients struggling with depression by determining what function their depression plays in their relationship system. For some, depression was a way of helping close friends and family feel needed, valuable and important. For others, depression was a symptom of caring everyone else' needs and concerns and having little time for their own. Whichever fits with you, we're here to help you grow and overcome.

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

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

Depression sucks. It can make you feel hopeless, empty, and alone, even when things in your life are going well. Whether your depression is chemical, situational, or a combination of both, I can help you find ways to act against that depressed feeling and take steps towards feeling better. It is common for Depression to impact your sense of self-worth, and vice versa. Thus the most effective therapeutic treatment for Depression is to re-focus on the traits and values that define who you are as a person separate from that feeling; you can then use those strengths to fight the Depression and get back to feeling like your old self again. I specialize in treating Post-Partum Depression as well.

Melissa Sanchez, LCPC, BC-DMT

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist

155 N. Michigan Avenue, Suite 603, Chicago, IL 60601

My personal experience with depression has given me helpful knowledge in how to tackle this insidious emotional state. Depression often robs us of the joy we so heartily want in life and can lead to feelings of loneliness, exhaustion and emotional isolation. Seeking help for depression is key to learning manage the thought processes that weigh down the body/mind during depressive episodes. My approach is rooted in mindfulness practices helping each person learn to track and trace their thought patterns related to depressive thinking and felt-sense emotions along with engaging the body in self-care activities aimed at building a health sense of self-efficacy.

You may feel like you have lost who you are. Treatment for depression involves honoring what you've been through, acknowledging where you are now and working on multiple levels to restore your energy and your life. How to work within yourself, wisely structure your time, initiate self-care and recover your inner spirit all contribute to moving into a new reality. I will encourage you to take action around your thinking and use guided imagery, music, and other creative methods to bring you into a new way of being.
