In my depression treatment practice, I use a therapeutic approach that is exceptionally powerful. Some of my clients have experienced remarkable results in as little as one session. How can this happen? I combine an unusually effective combination of methods known for producing rapid and significant change. As a psychotherapist, I bring to therapy the skills I acquired while studying for a Masters and a Ph.D. in Psychology. My book Healing & Wholeness: Complementary and Alternative Therapies for Mental Health examines thousands of studies that have demonstrated the superior level of healing that is possible when mental health is addressed from a mind-body-spirit perspective.

Depression has many causes. Sadness or low energy are what most indicates someone is depressed. Often there are biological, psychological, social, and spiritual reasons when one is depressed. When looking at a brain scan, one can see indicators of depression. Depression is a biological problem. Yet it is not only our genes that influence our depression, but sleep, food, and exercise also affect us. Our thinking, feelings, and choices of action affect our depression as well. When we criticize ourselves excessively, we magnify our depression. Our depression may be a result of avoiding emotions that seem overwhelming. Depression is affected by my relationships. When depressed, one can isolate them self and then be deprived of the energy that comes from human interaction.

Depression is usually caused from helplessness in the face of overwhelming situations. This can be a learned response from unresolved traumas in your past. My approach to depression is multifaceted, beginning with getting to know you and understanding your life and its hardships. Very quickly, I like to move into using Somatic Experiencing to help resolve past trauma and retrain your nevous system to be able to re-regulate itself in the face of what used to be overwhelming circumstances. I have seen a lot of people rise up out of the hell of depression, with and without medication, to live the lives they were meant to live.

Depression can feel overwhelming, debilitating and just plain no fun. Sometimes there is a clear reason for depression such as a loss or a difficult transition. Sometimes the reason is unclear. Whatever your situation, my goal as your therapist will be to help you better understand the source of the pain and use concrete tools and skills to help you overcome it. Using a variety of methods, we can find ways to help you feel a renewed sense of purpose, confidence, and joy in your life. I offer EMDR therapy which is a highly-researched, effective form of therapy that often creates positive change in fewer sessions than talk therapy alone. Contact me for more details.

Does life seem bleak right now? Have you lost interest in the things you used to enjoy? Do you feel sad most of the time? Do you have little to look forward to, and a lot you’d prefer not to look back on? When you are convinced that things will never get better no matter what, you are depressed. I can give you tools and teach you how to use them to dig yourself out of the emotional ditch you’re in. It is possible to feel hope again when you know how.

Depression is not an illness. You are't broken. Depression is doorway to a better life. Beyond the brain chemistry that contributes to depression in our stressful world, depression is a signal to pause and reassess your life. Depression comes from an inner wisdom that asks you to look at your ways of being, thinking and doing that might not be serving you. This painful place is a liminal temenos, an in-between place which holds your vast potential for healing, discovery and transformation. An Integrative approach works with your thinking that leads to depression, as well as holistic methods to guide you deep into your wisdom, and back out to connect fully with yourself and your life.

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 can be so debilitating. Having a safe place to talk about what has happened, your hopes, your worries with someone who can come along side of you to share the difficulties can be really helpful. Sometimes we can get stuck in ways we think of ourselves and others and feel like there is no way out. Exploring these ideas with someone who can really be present for you can help. Sometimes we don't realize we have strengths and options for ourselves. Counseling can help uncover those resources and provide hope.

In treating depression I explore your history, is your depression in your family or only your experience. Did it start with some incident or repeated incidents - abuse, bullying, trauma? Then we target the negative beliefs contributing to your depression using EMDR or Energy Psychology - EFT Tapping, or HealingCodes. These methods enable us to reduce the depression and give you an ongoing tool to use to be able to manage and even possibly eliminate it all together.

If you're stuck, it can feel like your own mind is against you, pulling you down into a swamp. It usually has to do with imagining that you are helpless - and while it might seem that you ARE helpless, it's really important to get in to talk to a therapist to get past that idea, and get moving forward again. Let's break it down into manageable pieces and get you activated and engaged in life.

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.
