Depression is not a matter of “having a poor attitude” nor is it something that a person can will away. This often misunderstood state is a real biological condition every bit as much as diabetes. Some depressions are situational and can be treated with psychotherapy alone, and some are rooted in the body’s biochemistry and must be treated with medication. My clients are evaluated carefully to determine the best treatment plan for them on a case by case basis, and of course the greatest care is taken to provide you with a safe place to express your sorrows and to be heard with empathy and patience.

At Psych ZenHealth, our approach to treating depression is first to find out the causes of the depression. We understand that the two difficult things about depression are: - Drawing a line between sadness and depression - Identifying at what point to seek treatment. Our goal in providing holistic and compassionate care is to restore our patients to their functional level before the depressive episode. We do so by incorporating pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy (cognitive behavior therapy, individual supportive therapy, thought restructuring, motivational interview) in our practice. Our clients’ experience relief from the heaviness of depression right with their first visit.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a highly effective, evidenced-based treatment approach for depression. CBT works by teaching clients to modify unhelpful patterns of thinking, develop better problem-solving skills, master relaxation and mindfulness techniques, and gradually confront feared situations to improve their coping skills. CBT has has been shown in numerous clinical trials, involving thousands of clients to dramatically reduce symptoms and provide lasting effects for many years after treatment. This is why the majority of insurance providers today view CBT as the evidenced based treatment of choice.

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. I help men uncover the negative self talk and self criticism that often accompanies depression, as well as deal with other symptoms such as low motivation, anger, fatigue, and other things that keep good men depressed.

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.
