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.

Sadness and depression have many causes, and therefore people respond differently to various treatment approaches. I can help you discover your own unique triggers for depression, and work with you to find the best treatment for you. Though medication has it's value in some circumstances, I view medication as a last resort after all other interventions have failed. Therapy has been proven to help people feel better faster. Let me help you begin the healing process.

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.

I help people struggling with depression by helping them to explore the history/causes of their depression, normalize and validate their emotions, create solutions to real life problems when applicable, and to create and grow hope & optimism. When depression appears to be the result of a biological problem like thyroid issues or chemical imbalances I help clients to find doctors who can evaluate them and then work with them on issues related to their depression. Medication tends to help with the symptoms of depression but doesn't do much to address the underlying thoughts, feelings, and history that have caused or contributed to the depression.

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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.

Some established theories about what causes depression include “Anger turned inward”, “early Object Loss”, and “the inability to Grieve”. It think it is no coincidence that Depression and Anger are two of the stages of Grief which Kubler-Ross identified as a normal aspects of resolving significant loss. Normal Grief and Bereavement can become complicated by any kind of overwhelming or traumatic experience. I find that Somatic approaches such as Sensorimotor Psychotherpy are ideal for working with Depression, as it reconnects us with the deeper natural healing resources available to us when we pay attention to the wisdom of the body as it communicates on multiple levels.

In treating depression I use a holistic eclectic approach depending on what works for each individual. In therapy we may focus on the underlying root causes of depression perhaps stemming from childhood issues, trauma, and relationships with parents or caregivers. We may focus on cognitive behavorial techniques relating how thoughts can affect feelings and behavoir. We may focus on current interpersonal relationships and how they play a role in your depression. We may focus on other current life stressors and develop new coping strategies for dealing with stress. My goal is to support you and assist you as you climb out of depression's often times debilitating symptoms.
