Understanding depression means knowing it is more than just "being sad". It can mean feeling less motivated, more tired, more angry or irritable, less interest in things that used to be enjoyable, feeling isolated and lonely, or just wanting it all to be over. The good news is that once we understand what depression means for you, II can work with you through one of several evidence-based therapies that have been shown to significantly reduce these symptoms and return your ability to live a fuller life.

Depression is a symptom that can be debilitating. The suffering is great and we often do not have the energy to handle life the way we feel we need too. Therapy is an evidence based way to treat depression. The work I do focuses on understanding the root cause of the depression, and working with you to begin allowing yourself to transform and live in a way that in congruent with who you really are.

It is so hard to understand depression. However, once you do understand it, it becomes a highly treatable state. I hope that we will together pinpoint the life problems that contribute to your depression and find which aspects of those problems can be solved or improved. Identify negative or distorted thought patterns you might have, and develop your skills that will help you fight the depression.

Being depressed can often make you feel helpless. You're not -there's a lot you can do to fight back. Most people feel sad or depressed at times and those feelings are a normal reaction to loss or life's struggles...but when intense feelings of being sad, helpless, hopeless, and worthless last for many days to weeks or months, it may be something more than sadness. Be kind to yourself - reach out and I will help you find an approach that will work for you.

Depression is a state that is usually warranted as a result of the situation that we come across. If we allow ourselves to experience and explore our depressive states, our natural tendency is to move out of this state. My approach to working with depression is not to make clients feel better immediately, but it is to sit in the depressed place with them so we can explore why they are there. Once its explored, experienced, and understood, only then can we move ourselves to health.

My approach to depression is combined with the help of a Doctor and /or Psychiatrist. I feel as though using medication with psychotherapy is the best remedy available for those suffering from depression. Many of my sessions will focus on removal of past thoughts and ruminations of the past situation. I also use other forms of therapy such as Emotional Freedom Technique and parts of DBT.

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 is the common cold of psychology. Like anxiety and stress, depression is quite commonly reported by consumers of psychotherapy. I am experienced, comfortable, and patient with treating depression. I am neither strongly opposed nor strongly supportive of pharmacotherapeutics. I engage an approach that is personal-growth-centered and as independent of the medical model as is possible.

Sometimes depression feels so dark it is hard to get out of bed. Other times it is more like a "heavy cloud" that burdens you with constant negative thoughts and feelings. Sometimes people are haunted by a barrage of critical thoughts like "what's wrong with you", " you always screw up", " if only you were like other people". Counselling helps you change the way you think and feel about yourself so you can approach life with a more hopeful and positive outlook.

Depression can feel like overwhelming sadness, or maybe like you are in a "funk" that you can not get out of. People often start to isolate themselves, and focus on negative thoughts. I offer a warm, safe place to share your feelings, examine your relationships and perceptions that may be contributing to your depression. I introduce concrete suggestions that will help you get your back on track. People frequently feel a sense of relief after sharing their burdens. In discussing experiences people are often able to view themselves differently and gain insight into how they can more effectively deal with situations and relationships.

Depression is not feeling bad – it is not feeling. When we become depressed we try to insulate ourselves from our emotions. Treatment for depression requires a willingness to feel what we are avoiding. This requires a process of exploring the buried feelings in a safe, supportive environment. As we become friends with our emotions we can gradually come back to life.

Sometimes we find ourselves stuck, with little to no motivation. We might also blame ourselves or others for how we got here. As a psychologist my role isn't to change you, rather it is to help you gain a greater understanding of what is going on. However, this isn't a stopping point. Through greater understanding we might also increase our compassion for ourselves. By giving ourselves some grace and working through the stress and challenges of our lives often we find that motivation to move forward and continue to grow and thrive!

The main approach for depression is cognitive. Firstly always I empathize and listen carefully to what is happening with the client and how they are coping. The main strategy is to explain the process of cognition, emotions and behavior. I give written homework to help the client change unrealistic and negitive thoughts into positive thinking, which then in turn changes their emotion and behavior.

Depression is one of the most difficult and painful of all human experiences. It robs us of energy, interest and the will to make things better. Much of the basis for depression lies in one's thinking. We will explore thinking patterns and how they impact your emotions. We will investigate new skills such as solving problems, changing thinking patterns, and reactivating your life. We will also create a plan to prevent future episodes, how to recognize depression episodes early, and how to prevent depression from spiralling deeper.

Depression is a common problem, but this makes it no less difficult to overcome. It takes a lot of effort and great courage to enter counselling for depression, as you need to muster up the strength and hope to open up to a stranger with such a deep and vulnerable pain. I offer a few approaches to depression, one of which is CBT, a proven therapy that helps people identify certain thought patterns and beliefs, as well as some behaviors that are contributing to their feeling "stuck". These strategies have been proven to be very helpful to clients. Most importantly, I believe that providing a safe environment to explore all that is on your heart and mind, is the best gift I can offer.

While there are many causes and contributors to depression, a common approach to working with it involves challenging negative thinking. Hurtful or damaging stories we tell ourselves tend to lead to feelings of hopelessness and sadness, which in turn, manifest as depression. At least in part, therapy for depression involves exploring the roots of negative thinking whereby its legitimacy is safely challenged. By undermining these hurtful thoughts, we are more inclined to experience preferred emotions, and a more enjoyable outcome. Clients that engage this process tend to find relief from depressive symptoms and live a more fulfilling life with more options available to them.

In working with clients who are experiencing depression I tend to avoid recommending medication (except when necessary). For clients who are currently on medication, many come looking to work towards healthy functioning without medication. One of the most difficult parts about healing from depression is how difficult it can be to feel motivated to take action to care for yourself. I understand that, and I won't push you to do anything you aren't ready for. Making an appointment and attending the session is one of the most difficult steps. When you make it in, we will be able to develop an understanding of the underlying issues that lead to your depression and a plan to overcome it.
