Depression and chronic worry often go hand in hand and both leave us feeling helpless and alone. I work with people who are locked in cycles of repetitive, negative thinking to see that the wisdom of the body can be harnessed to help change the cycle. You can learn to listen to your body-mind's need for being accepted, encouraged, and loved, rather than harassed, put-down and pushed. Depression is the fear of doing things on the job, in relationship or in life less than perfectly. And yet perfection isn't possible. We can work together to release you from the bonds of skewed thinking. You can practice new skills, especially acceptance of yourself, other people and our human frailties.

Depression can be painful for the person suffering from it as well as those closest to them. When we are depressed, previously enjoyable activities can appear meaningless. We lose interest in connecting with others (often exacerbating symptoms). Furthermore, it can feel as though there is "no point" to life. We all have periods of time when we feel less than ideal, but depression is severe and enduring. Counseling provides an atmosphere where it is safe to discuss these feelings.

Depression is different from grief, sadness, or challenging transitions. If you find yourself feeling stuck in states of low energy, low motivation, and apathy, it is time to seek help. I primarily use Hakomi Experiential Therapy to help you uncover old beliefs and patterns that may have been adaptive in your family, but that aren't serving you anymore. I can teach you practices to use all your sensory awareness to bring pleasure to your life again. This discovery process can bring capacity for new choices, new feelings of energy and creative vitality.

There is hope!! How you experience your depression can change. The truth is we all suffer from varying degrees of depression. Depression is not necessarily to be cured but to better understood. Pain is a teacher, not an enemy. What one generally thinks is the problem may not turn out to be the problem, the problem is generally how you deal with the problem. The real challenge of working through depression is learning about your own process of beliefs, opinions, judgements, etc. When you get a better understanding of your process and learn how to process differently is when you will discover more times than not your depression alleviating.

Does life seem bleak right now? Have you lost interest in the things you used to enjoy? Do you feel sad most of the time? Do you have little to look forward to, and a lot you’d prefer not to look back on? When you are convinced that things will never get better no matter what, you are depressed.

Mary-Stone Bowers, MA, MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Monte Sereno, CA

Depression brings on a sense that all is bleak, hopeless and dark. It can feel like a huge struggle to get out of bed or impossible to stop crying. Suicidal thoughts to end it all might occur as can physical aches and pains. Getting little pleasure out of what used to bring you joy is a common symptom. Psychotherapy can be incredibly beneficial to someone suffering depressed and often accompanying feelings of anxiety. In a safe and secure relationship with a therapist, you can get a better understanding of your thoughts and feelings that might be a result of a recent trauma or lifetime experiences. With understanding can come relief and a renewed sense of optimism and lightness.

There is still so much to live for and do!

Depression is a common yet serious illness that is treatable with a 3 prong approach: medical attention (to rule out medical issues contributing), psycho-therapy (to treat underlying contributing), and diet and exercise routine (walking, nutritious meals, etc.). Collaborative care can provide the support needed to address challenges and live your life fully.

Depression can be a very lonely and scary experience. People experiencing it can feel hopeless and helpless at times. The good news is that counseling is a very effective treatment for mild to moderate depression and I have seen my clients improve when they have struggled with depression. Having a safe place to talk about the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors associated with depression, helping my clients identify their blind spots and generating alternatives, and knowing that I am on my client's team trying to help them through this challenge has been very beneficial for the people I have helped.

We will then make these sources of good feeling more prominent in your life. With the tools of compassion, gratitude, and skillful behavior at your command, you will be empowered to create a life worth living.

Within Driving Distance of Monte Sereno, CA

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.

Depression has many causes. Sadness or low energy are what most indicates someone is depressed. Often there are biological, psychological, social, and spiritual reasons when one is depressed. When looking at a brain scan, one can see indicators of depression. Depression is a biological problem. Yet it is not only our genes that influence our depression, but sleep, food, and exercise also affect us. Our thinking, feelings, and choices of action affect our depression as well. When we criticize ourselves excessively, we magnify our depression. Our depression may be a result of avoiding emotions that seem overwhelming. Depression is affected by my relationships. When depressed, one can isolate them self and then be deprived of the energy that comes from human interaction.

There are many causes for depression and many forms of depression, from reactive depressions to deep internal depressions. Sudden depressions as well as long lasting depressions are not to be ignored. They are serious emotional responses which can benefit extensively from appropriate counseling and therapeutic interventions. Having a caring and listening ear to talk to during a time of depressive despair can be extremely healing. It is often stated that a healthy listening relationship can heal beyond measure. There are depressions which will benefit from medical interventions along with talking interventions. In general, cared for depressions will greatly improve and most will pass.

Has anyone ever implied you should just "snap out of" depression? Oh, boy, do they not understand! If depression is keeping you from living the life you want, I can help.

Studies show that even contacting a therapist can give you hope. Give it a try. I'm waiting to hear from you.

Depression feels like walking through mud. We lose ourselves and wonder if we will ever be found again. Often depression is a result of unexpressed negative emotions (which we were never allowed to safely express in our family of origin - so we swallowed it instead). I am very comfortable with the shame and humility that the human condition sometimes hands us - and I can sit with my clients while they work through unexpressed sadnesses - and ultimately find joy in their lives.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Monte Sereno, CA

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.

My approach to depression is primarily cognitive and behavioral. Depression is often a result of maladaptive ways of thinking and poor self care habits.
