Life can feel overwhelming sometimes and it can be difficult to feel hopeful. Whether you are having difficulty with one of life's transitions - such a divorce or a death of a loved one or another trauma, or suffering from a depression or an anxiety disorder - counseling can help make sense of what is going on. I can give you tools to change unhealthy thoughts and behaviors what aren't working for you. Together, we can challenge old irrational patterns of thoughts and behaviors. I want to help to renew your sense of empowerment and overall well-being.

I like to work collaboratively with my clients with a special emphasis on going at their own pace. When feelings of hopelessness, sadness, or lack of motivation is a primary concern, it is important to help clients find goals that they feel they are actually able to achieve. Providing a supportive, non-judgmental and peaceful atmosphere in therapy can help a client explore some of the more challenging struggles that has made him or her feel stuck, either in their personal goals or in important close relationships. Finding new strategies or coping skills to replace the ones that have stopped working becomes the new goal and transformations in outlook and relationships can begin.

Are you feeling a loss of hope or less interest in the things that used to bring you pleasure? While we all get low, persistent sad, anxious, or “empty” feelings may be indicators of depression. When you are experiencing feelings of guilt, worthlessness, or helplessness that aren’t going away, it’s time to get help. Often when people are experiencing these emotions they feel isolated and that life will always be this way I treat people who are experiencing these feelings and help them to address the causes and symptoms associated with their depression, so that they can enjoy life again. Call me today at 949.370.4726 or email at email@example.com.

Depression counseling involves assessing and making appropriate changes in the physical, emotional, and relational aspects of a client's life that are contributing to depressed mood. I work with clients to both remedy the underlying causes and their resulting cognitions, and the lifestyle habits that hinder their recovery. Often it is appropriate to work in conjunction with medical professionals who may suggest medications and/or nutritional supplements to correct the biochemical aspects of depressive episodes. Clients benefit most when their treatment is comprehensive and avoids dealing solely with symptom relief.

Many individuals are suffering from a dual-diagnosis and the question always is: "Which came first? The substance abuse or the mental health issue?" It is our job to help families and individuals determine the answer to that question. The first step is a neutral living environment. The second step is a psychiatric and psychological evaluation with which we can build a custom treatment plan. Some individuals will need medication to assist them in accepting therapy and getting out of their major depression, others will need no medication, just therapy and coping skills. Our clinician's job is to determine which combination of therapies is best for you.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
