I am Kristi Starkey a therapist in Ladera Ranch, CA and when a client comes in with depression, I start by asking you questions to pinpoint what life situations are contributing to your depressive symptoms. I will help you identify negative and distorted thinking patterns that contribute to hopelessness and helplessness that often accompany depression. I will use cognitive behavior therapy to challenge those thoughts and feelings. And, I will teach you coping skills which are tools to help you offset your feelings of hopelessness and helplessness.

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 kevin@kevinflemingphd.com.

Not that I do not empathize with the suffering depression brings, but I do think depression can be instructive to your lives. While many people view depression as simply a bad thing and/or something we just want to get rid of, I view depression as a unique opportunity to learn from the depression. Why is the depression there? I have not met anyone who was depressed that did not feel that way for a reason. Symptoms of depression usually tell us clues as to why the human soul is suffering, and also can also provide further clues to the solutions. Many solutions easily flow right out of finding out the "why's" and "what's" of the depression.

Research shows that Cognitive-Behavior Therapy (CBT) is the most effective treatment (sometimes in conjunction with medication), for Clinical Depression. I was originally trained in CBT. Also, I have found that other modalities, such as Voice Dialogue, Assertiveness Training, & Acceptance & Commitment Therapy can help. Finally, a Mindfulness practice helps & a good exercise & nutrition program are crucial.

We all go through ups and downs in our moods. Discouragement is a normal reaction to life's struggles. Don't mistake depression for sadness. Depression is a hopelessness, emptiness, or lifeless apathy. Major depression is characterized by the inability to enjoy life and experience pleasure. Depression can be treated, learning new coping skills, setting appropriate boundaries and facing your fears is the first step to overcoming the patterns that have been contributing to your hopelessness.

There are two emotions which can be utilized in the process of healing from trauma: anger and sadness. Sadness can be a very effective vehicle for healing. The only problem with sadness is that it is such a short leap from there to depression. Sadness heals; depression does not. Depression can keep a person stuck in the same place for years without any progress. You must be very careful not to fall into depression when you decide to explore your feelings about the negative experiences of your life.
