Caught under a dark and weighty cloud that affects your thoughts, mood, emotions and behaviour? Maybe you're having trouble concentrating, remembering things or even contemplating suicide. Facing depression can alleviate feelings of sadness, worthlessness, guilt, restlessness, emptiness, irritability (just to name a few!). You may also feel relief from more physical symptoms such as a loss of energy and appetite, aches and pains, and digestive problems. Building on the joy and vitality that you may be overlooking in your life, we will pull you out of your pit of despair and teach you how to walk the path with no giant holes!

Depression can be a devastating point of being, and we first will hear your experience and point of view. Using ONLINE tools like video conferencing, email and text supports, I will support you in expressing your feelings, and will either talk or use art making tools, or employ both in this important first step. Next we will look at how you want to show up in the world, how do you want to be in your life? Working backwards, we develop a plan to help you move forward and start on your healing path.

Perhaps you have been plagued by stubborn thoughts of worthlessness. Your negative thoughts might be about you, others, or the world in general. They might be so disabling that they are getting in the way of the expectations you have for yourself. Or that others might have for you. No matter how much you sleep, you might be feeling exhausted and having difficulty concentrating. Medication can be a blessing, but studies show that the most effective treatment is medication and counselling combined. Sick of feeling hopeless? Ready to find hope? I use evidence-based counselling techniques to help you find yourself again. Hold on; breathe; find your courage. Then get in touch today!

I am honoured that you are interested in my services and I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. I have been described as slightly non-conventional in the counselling world, which suits me perfectly, and also tends to suit youth who are trying to stand up to the force of the problems in their life. I am very comfortable working with this population, and I feel fortunate that I can connect with teens the way I do, conventionally or in a way that makes sense to them.

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

Living with depression at some point in life is a reality for many people in our society. There are many factors contributing this fact and suffering in silence is not the answer despite the instinct to "put up with it" or "tough it out". Depression impacts how we think and feel about ourselves, others and the world around us. I approach depression from an individualized, holistic (mind, body, spirit) and strength-based perspective. I believe in practical strategies to help people feel empowered to learn new skills, build structure and meaning into life, and prevent depression from becoming your identity. You are not your feelings! There is value in exploring stigmatizing beliefs (beliefs such as people with depression are broken, faulty, lazy). Fear and...(view profile to read more)
