Depression often times is a symptom of stuffing ones emotions for years and finally the emotions shutdown. Sometimes depression is a reaction to a current loss. Identifying why the depression exists and what the individual is "truely" reacting to is key to undoing the patterns of depression. Often times, an individual has never focused on their internal feelings to allow themselves to feel what they feel. Therapy becomes an avenue to identify and resolve issues which to date have been buried and contribute to having depression in the first place. If depression is the result of a current trauma, addressing the issues can again reduce the degree of depression. Medication can be helpful.

Depression counseling involves assessing and making appropriate changes in the physical, emotional, and relational aspects of a client's life that are contributing to depressed mood. I work with clients to both remedy the underlying causes and their resulting cognitions, and the lifestyle habits that hinder their recovery. Often it is appropriate to work in conjunction with medical professionals who may suggest medications and/or nutritional supplements to correct the biochemical aspects of depressive episodes. Clients benefit most when their treatment is comprehensive and avoids dealing solely with symptom relief.

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.

Many people struggle with depression, men and women as well as children and adolescents. Depression needs to be assessed for severity and treated appropriately. The standard of care may include medication and talk therapy involving Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which can be very effective for most clients. Depression often masks frustration and anger or severe negative thoughts which can be explored in treatment. Most people benefit from talk therapy and find relief. Other family members may also be included in the treatment if that is appropriate.
