Feeling sad, low or in a bad mood is a normal part of being human. Depression is different; it can hold us back from our lives, suck our energy, and have us thinking negatively about ourselves and the world. And, depression is treatable. My job is to create the support you need to clarify the issues and situations that trigger depression, so that you can identify and act on strategies to interrupt the dark times, to move forward, and be proactive in the future. While it's not always possible to pinpoint the cause, we can work effectively with what we do know: about thoughts, emotions and actions that can either hold us back or be allies.

Psychotherapist | Leadership Coach | Speaker & Trainer

Suite 610 - 325 Howe Street, Vancouver, British Columbia

It’s normal to feel depressed when life doesn’t go the way that you had expected, and feeling depressed does not mean that there is something wrong with you. All depression is not the same. I will work with you to explore the source of your depressed feelings, and provide gentle support and tools to bring hope and help ease the weight that feeling depressed can place on your life.

Vancouver, British Columbia

No two people experience depression in exactly the same way and so dealing with it also needs an individual approach. Rather than viewing depression as something wrong with the person experiencing it, the client and I listen to what it might have to say to them. Though understandably, nobody likes depression, and it can be managed with tools such as Cognitive Behavioural therapy and mindfulness, etc., it can also be engaged through other approaches that allow its importance and meaning (and what it is calling for) is revealed. This can bring greater richness, wisdom, and appreciation for life.

Depression is complicated. It is a mental state of a person but a lot of times, clients do not have a clear grasp of its cause. The very present state of mind and functioning should be explored to determine the severity of the symptom first before starting to peeling each layer of the skin off an onion as a metaphor in order to explore possible reasons to the cause.Exploration via art would cover from the client's childhood to present stage in order to find any connecting clues to the cause of the depression. Since art is visual, the search itself would resemble that in a story which makes it easier for client to understand and digest as sequences can make more sense.

Depression is not only a mental problem, it is also a physical one - often leaving you with fatigue and lack of motivation to do anything. The first step to healing depression is building inner and outer resources for immediate symptom relief. This includes self- care, especially physical exercise along with mindful awareness of your internal experience . The next step is challenging those distorted beliefs and perceptions of yourself and the world. You can get better soon.

It can be hard to see your way out of the darkness of depression. Depression can be isolating, overwhelming, and steal the joy from our lives and relationships. The good news is that depression is very treatable, and finding a professional ally to help you recover can make all the difference. I work closely with clients struggling with depression to help them discover and choose tools that help them feel better moment to moment, while we develop and put into action a plan to help them work their way out of depression. We focus as well on better understanding what may contribute to the depression and how to prevent it in the future.

Depression can feel debilitating and leave people feeling isolated and unsure of how to get out of that "grey" zone. I describe it that way because when depressed, everything feels grey and nothing seems to matter. I think it is very important to uncover the underlying causes of a client's depression. This typically involves an increased awareness of how they are seeing themselves, and changing these negative thought patterns. In a way, depression can result in self loathing and recrimination. I help my clients make significant shifts in how they see themselves and others.

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

Being able to talk about our experiences and allow our feelings to surface is a first step toward unlocking ourselves from the weight of depression. The therapeutic approaches I draw on to support your shift out of a state of depression to a happier, more hopeful perspective will depend on your unique circumstances. f safety and trust feel confident to start sharing your experience with me, knowing that you are seen and understood. Often we have not had a place to share our struggles where we felt heard and accepted. Even the small shift in perspective that can be the result is enough to begin change.
