I received my Marriage and Family Therapy education at Bethel Seminary where I was trained to integrate my Christian faith with effective therapy practices. Human beings are created in the image of a God who is relational within his being. We are made for relationship. I have a passion for helping individuals, couples, and families find relationship healing and develop solutions to life’s challenges that are consistent with their Christian faith. Sometimes life can lead us to crises of faith. It is helpful to have a supportive relationship with a therapist as we work out our faith. Contact me.

Pre-licensed Therapist

2121 5th Avenue Suite 214, San Diego, California 92101 | 619-272-6858 ext 713

I chose to became a professionally trained therapist after talking with so many Christians and Christian leaders who suffered from anxiety and depression. From personal experience, I found a need for pastors and their spouses and children to provide a safe place outside of their church to seek help. I have seen how life challenges produced feelings of anxiety and depression that negatively impacted one’s daily life, spiritual calling, and personal faith in God. My heart and passion is to provide a safe place of healing for people of faith, spiritual leaders and their family, where they know their faith will no be challenged, but rather encouraged.

While most Christian Counselors pride themselves on how many Scriptural passages they can recite and how many links they can make from the Bible to psychological disorders, the Christian-centric work of Grey Matters International, Inc.is grounded in one principle: truth. For us, the work is more about truth and transparency of Christ's message and working on the natural laws of accountability and decision making that evolves from that. If one honors God's natural laws of reaping and sowing around the decisions one makes, one is indeed living Scripture to its fullest. We prepare the brain to better maximize the spiritual realities of Christ's words. Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com.

Faith and spirituality can provide comfort and meaning to those guided by their beliefs. I was raised in a Christian household myself so I have an appreciation for the values instilled by religion, the importance of tradition, and the strength of community. My approach to counseling is humanistic and welcoming of all spiritualities. Though I do not incorporate any specific pastoral counsel, I encourage my spiritual clients to draw on their beliefs during the counseling process.

I have a special passion for working with Christian clients and better connecting them with God. Many times trauma, relational wounds, and other negative experiences impact our thoughts and beliefs about God and our relationship with Him. My training at Bethel Seminary San Diego prepared me to integrate the therapeutic process with the Christian faith. I believe the combination of sound therapeutic practice and the hope and truth found in the Bible is powerful! If you are feeling stuck in your relationship with God, I offer you an invitation to come and explore the areas that may be keeping you from more intimacy with Him.
