The psychology part of my biopsychsocial approach to depression is Mindfulness Based Cognitive Behavioural therapy. In cultivating a mindfulness practice we are able to bring our feelings and thought to the present. Since the hallmark of depression is ruminating on our past actions and circumstances, MCBT can help undermine the power of those thoughts on our mental wellness. Through making connections in group care and partnering with yoga studios we can create holistic emotional tool belts to treat depression and prevent the onset of future episodes. I have a passion for working with women with postpartum depression.

Depression can trick us. Things that normally make us happy, don’t. Our motivation to move forward in our lives seems to have disappeared into an empty pit. Things that made us feel alive feel like a distant memory. We get stuck. But, therapy can help – sometimes in unexpected ways. My approach doesn’t involve spending months figuring out the ‘root’ of the depression, although building insight is an important part of the process. We figure out what’s important to you, learn ways to get ‘un-stuck’ from our thoughts and feelings, and use concrete strategies to get you living again. The difficult part about treatment for depression is that there isn’t going to be a magic, ‘ah hah!’ mom

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.

Physical symptoms may include, but are not limited to a lack of energy, problems sleeping, pronounced weight changes, and eventually, even serious illness.
