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.

Our understanding of depression and its origins has deepened in recent years, especially with the much more nuanced knowledge we now have about the influences of both our early lives and neurobiology in shaping how we experience and respond to stress and adversity. If you are depresses, it is important to understand whether it is a response to situational, and possibly temporary circumstances, a biological tendency, a response to long-term trauma or a combination of triggers. If you wish to explore how I could help with your particular situation, please call me at 415-533-9724.

It can often seem like society expects us to be happy and positive at all times, that any admission of sadness or a loss of motivation, energy, or engagement with life is a personal failure. But Depression isn't a personal failure, and it is also more than just "feeling sad". If you find yourself down in the hole of disconnection, surrounded by a fog that is interfering with your life and relationships, you need a hand to help you climb out. A trained therapist understands the mechanics of depression and can help you understand it and find strategies to make your way up and out of it, and back into the light. Please contact me so we can begin to work on this process together.

Depression (and anxiety) are normal responses to painful environments. Are finding it difficult to be motivated? Are you lower energy than you should be? Is it hard to get out of bed? Do you get irritable for no reason at times? If so, you may be suffering from depression. I attack depression from two angles. One strategy is using CBT strategies to help you manage some of your symptoms. I also use EMDR, attachment based psychotherapy, and body / nervous system informed strategies to help you transform some of the underlying brain mis-wiring that is there from your past. Don't find somebody that just stares at you and lets you continue to be depressed. Let's do something about this!

Depression robs us, not only of our happiness and sense of well-being, but also of the hope that things will get better. Depression makes us feel we are worthless, so it is hard to reach out for the help we need. I help clients defeat depression through reestablishing hope and improving self-esteem and self-care. I have worked with clients suffering from chronic, lifelong depression as well as those experiencing their first depressive episode. Overcoming depression restores resilience and can teach lifelong lessons in self-care and the path to emotional health. I have been there myself, so I know that there is hope. You will overcome depression and feel like yourself again.

Depression can set in when our emotions or negative thought patterns become overwhelming and too much to hold. Pain or hardship often is too much to hold alone. With my help, we can start to open to emotion, bring a wise awareness to thought patterns, and to find aliveness again. If we can make friends with our emotions, stop fighting them, and to recognize their purpose in regulating the nervous system or showing us what matters to us, tremendous resilience can be found on the other side.

I believe depression is caused when we shut down our emotional expression. As in if we shut down one part of ourselves, such as our anger, or our desire, or our fear, or any other one part, we can't just shut down the one channel and we end up shutting them all down, leading to depression. The solution is to create the safety and trust needed for the person to finally be able to express and feel what they have been blocking and thus move past the depression into more aliveness.

Depression often really just means "repression". It is usually a sign that the human system is overwhelmed with thoughts & emotions that have become unmanageable. People with depression are often stuck & unmotivated. A shift in circumstances is usually needed for people suffering from depression AND expressing emotions through a variety of outlets is extremely helpful.

Depression can manifest itself in different ways. It's most well-known manifestation is tearfulness, isolation, low self-esteem, hopelessness, and negative self-talk. Depression can also show up as irritability, patterns of avoidance, aggression, and anxiety. Because of 1) the more popular face of depression and 2) the stigma attached to it, people encounter difficulty in reaching out for and receiving help. It can be a really frustrating, hopeless place to feel stuck. I will help you to come to a place of understanding your depression and give you tools to understand and manage the symptoms.

Depression can make it even more difficult to come into therapy. Feelings of hopelessness and despair can lead to isolation which often only makes the depression worse. Even though it's difficult to come in and talk, therapy really can help to increase awareness and lift your feelings of depression which will help you to feel more engaged with your life. Take the first step to feeling better and we will collaborate to work through your depression and work towards generating awareness, emotional and psychological movement, and motivation in your life.

When you are waking up sad or feeling heaviness, or irritable much of the time you might benefit from some help with this. Therapy or counseling can make a difference. It may take you out of being by yourself and thinking blue thoughts or feeling less power than you really have to allow interest in feeling good again. I want to be present for you to give you ways to lighten the leaden or deeply sad feelings and restore a sense of hope. Your mind/body can respond to ways to clear what is stuck and gain a sense of strength and caring for yourself, which is what I am right here to provide guidance through. With some solid professional assistance, brightening can happen for you: really!

Research shows that the most effective treatment for depression is psychotherapy. Depression can range from feeling down to major symptoms such as having trouble even getting out of bed or contemplating suicide (if you have suicidal thoughts or plans, call the National Suicide Prevention Line at 1-800-273-8255). Online counseling is effective for depression because it is easy to access: you can start treatment without even leaving the house.

Depression and Anxiety are the number one mental health issues in the United States. Most people who suffer from depression don't get help for it, instead they suffer alone. Rather medicating it away, therapy can help you understand the roots of the depression and/or anxiety and learn specific tools to find relief from it. You don't have to continue living with sadness.

Symptoms of depression can leave one feeling lost and alone. Counseling can help you gain your bearings and find your way back to normalcy. Often our thoughts are a major contributor to these feelings of hopelessness and helplessness that accompany depression. Your thought patterns can provide a roadmap to understanding some of the causes that may have lead to these symptoms. Changing these negative thought patterns and learning new coping skills often lead to symptom relief. Sometimes post-traumatic-stress from traumatic events in childhood or adulthood cause you to feel stuck in a cycle of dispair. EMDR has proven effectve for desensitizing the trauma caused by these events.

Depression is a signal from our internal system telling us we need to stop. What we need to stop may need to be discovered still, and therapy can help us to do just that. Depression tells us that some part of us feels hopeless, powerless and despairing, in light of the conditions or circumstances we are facing, and that nothing we can do will change that. I believe that we can address those feelings and together, we can find a way through the darkness of depression and help it to see and feel the power of our presence together. Let's not be afraid of what it might say, and instead appreciate it as a messenger and together, I believe we can hear its dilemma and help you to find a way through!

While most of us feel gloomy sometimes, for many, these feelings don't last very long. With depression, these feelings can affect your daily life and ability to function, and they can last a long time. Without help, depression can impact your relationships, job peformance, and other aspects of your life. Since depression doesn't always look the same or start for the same reason, I can help you identify and understand your own triggers as well as develop effective pathways to recovery.

Depression is at times that experience that drains you of the energy, motivation and the inspiration you once had. Something may have happened in your storied experience, or it may have evolved seemingly out of the blue. When depression visits, our approach is to use a cognitive-behavioral therapy approach blended with a relational, interpersonal supportive approach to support a healthy balance in your: social life, fitness activities, sleep, nutrition, self-talk, esteem, efficacy, motivation and life goals.

There are many causes for depression and many forms of depression, from reactive depressions to deep internal depressions. Sudden depressions as well as long lasting depressions are not to be ignored. They are serious emotional responses which can benefit extensively from appropriate counseling and therapeutic interventions. Having a caring and listening ear to talk to during a time of depressive despair can be extremely healing. It is often stated that a healthy listening relationship can heal beyond measure. There are depressions which will benefit from medical interventions along with talking interventions. In general, cared for depressions will greatly improve and most will pass.

Depression can cause experiences of lonliness, sadness, agitation, tearfulness, hopelessness, and decreased motivation. Together we can work to identify potential causes of depression symptoms and how these symptoms may be impacting your life. In most cases a core belief about ourself or the world can cause depression to persist. Some of these beliefs can include but are not limited to "I'm not good enough", "noone cares about me", "it's not safe to express my emotions", and "bad things always happen to me". Taking a collaborative approach we will incorporate both self compassion strategies and tangible skills based interventions as a way to work on improving your mood.

I often work with people who lack self-confidence, feel "stuck" or unmotivated, experience feelings of helplessness and sadness, and struggle with interpersonal relationships. Sometimes people experience these feelings in one area of their life and sometimes they feel this way in general. I help facilitate a greater understanding of why you might be feeling this way. I also provide strategies of ways of relating to yourself and others that is more skillful, compassionate, and prosocial. This often results in experiencing greater joyfulness, self-trust, and kindness toward yourself, as well as self-confidence, effectiveness, and agency as you move through the world.
