Depression comes in many forms. There is a nagging, lower-grade type that makes every day tasks a drag to perform. There are also more severe mood disorders that make functioning almost impossible. Often, medications are helpful in addition to psychotherapy for these situations. Medicines help people function better in therapy (contrary to common beliefs), and allow people to resume their lives while they get help. It is important to realize that depression becomes a chemical imbalance at times, changing the way people actually think (negative, hopeless). We work to relieve unresolved emotional issues and substitute healthier patterns of thinking to facilitate getting back on track.

If you're struggling with feelings of depression, don't go through this alone. You may be feeling a sense of emptiness and hopelessness for reasons that are clear to you such as loss, divorce, family issues, trauma, or recent life transitions. It may be that you just don't know why you're feeling so low. Medication is not always the best answer. Current research has shown that mild to moderate depression is best treated with therapy. I'll listen with respect and compassion for your unique experience and together we can begin to restore hope and happiness to your life.

All of us experience depression at some time in our lives; it can be a reaction to loss, a chemical imbalance, or a result of unprocessed emotion. Depression can give us an opportunity to slow down and work though issues, or it can become incapacitating. I use a compassionate, cognitive approach to treating depression, which honors your feelings while helping you gain insight and energy to grow through difficult issues.

Depression can be caused by a lot of things. In some cases there may be a biological reason why someone is depressed, but in many cases, depression results from negative thinking patterns. Negative thoughts emerge from parts of us that hold false beliefs that are contrary to what we believe. I can help you address these negative thought patterns that are causing you pain so you can live victoriously.

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 can have different causes and levels of intensity, but it certainly diminishes the pleasure and energy we experience in life. It is both difficult and unproductive to spend a lot of time trying to determine the cause. My focus is on what we have control over, which is our thoughts and behavior. Together we uncover these self-defeating beliefs and patterns we have adopted and replace them with more productive ones.

The way we think, determines what we feel, influences the decisions we make, and actions we will choose. Many times, we are unaware of our automatic thoughts and we feel trapped, helpless, or hopeless, with a negative view of ourselves, of others and of our future. Talking with someone can help. Talking with a trained, experienced counselor can help even more. I provide an accepting atmosphere, ask questions that elicit self-reflection and self-awareness, and empowerment without need for shame and blame.

Depression is debilitating for many men, and because of the stigma of getting counseling, a lot of guys simply don't attend to themselves and seek out the help that they need. I work with men to help identify the root causes of their depression, and work through the blocks and barriers towards more effective living.
