Are you feeling down, depressed, having negative thoughts, and feeling stuck, out of energy? Depression affects most people, to some degree, at some point in life. Seeking help is enormously important because the cycle of depression needs to be interrupted. When I work with depression, I focus on the interaction between the thoughts that we tell ourselves, our day-to-day behaviors and our mood. This is called CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), and is the treatment of choice for depression. I also use positive, strength/values based interventions from the field of Positive Psychology, which has also been found to be a strong intervention. Break the cycle, reach out.

Symptoms of depression can leave one feeling lost and alone. Counseling can help you gain your bearings and find your way back to normalcy. Often our thoughts are a major contributor to these feelings of hopelessness and helplessness that accompany depression. Your thought patterns can provide a roadmap to understanding some of the causes that may have lead to these symptoms. Changing these negative thought patterns and learning new coping skills often lead to symptom relief. Sometimes post-traumatic-stress from traumatic events in childhood or adulthood cause you to feel stuck in a cycle of dispair. EMDR has proven effectve for desensitizing the trauma caused by these events.

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.

Thinking negatively, ruminating over problems, being irritable and angry are some of the mental symptoms of depression. If you know or believe that you are depressed, seeking out professional help can be a true life saver. I'd like to offer you help and hope, with practical suggestions and guidance in a safe environment to resolve your depression and find joy in living.

My approach to depression is primarily cognitive and behavioral. Depression is often a result of maladaptive ways of thinking and poor self care habits. This type of therapy has been shown to be effective in the treatment of depression. The difficult part for depressed people is finding the motivation to make these necessary changes in order to feel better. One of my primary jobs is to help you figure out how to do these things in a way that allows you to be successful and to provide tools that will support your efforts.

Depression can feel as though a deep fog has fallen over your familiar life so that nothing feels clear, it is hard to think and all you want to do is withdraw into an empty room. People may tell you that you can "just snap out of it", not realizing that depression is truly an illness. Extended stress, a sudden crisis or even a genetic tendency for depression will deplete the biochemicals you need in your brain. That is why the best treatment for depression is medication to build up the needed biochemicals and 'talk therapy' to understand what issues in your life were behind this illness. This new understanding of old blocks in your life will allow you to move ahead more freely.

I will help you understand and improve communication patterns of interacting with other people, should it contribute to the depression. You will make small changes each day. We build on it.

Depression manifests in many ways but the overriding symptoms in children are irritability, changes in sleeping and eating habits, low energy, not seeming to enjoy things that once were fun and isolating. Some have feelings of hopelessness. I work with my clients, to gain an understanding of what they feel. We work together to uncover the deeper reasons for the feelings, the thoughts and behavior. And then begin to learn ways to change the thoughts and feelings so they can once again feel more confident that things will work out for them.
