I use a variety of treatment modalities tailored to your unique needs to reduce your depressive symptoms as quickly as possible. My goal is for you to go back to fully enjoying your life as soon as possible.

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

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.

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.

Is depression weighing you down? Are you feeling sad, hopeless, tired, irritable and discouraged? When depression takes over, it colors everything in our lives with a negative tinge. People suffering from depression need someone who is warm and caring, and who understands pros and cons of medications. I help people who are depressed to identify the areas where they feel stuck, process the underlying issues, and find a new joy in life. I would be glad to walk with you through depression and help you to come out on the other side.

Are you sad? Having trouble functioning? Has life lost it's meaning? Are you outwardly successful yet wondering "Is that all there is?" Although many of us feel down from time to time, depression can sometimes feel debilitating. Depression has many causes. My approach includes work on various levels: emotional, relational, cognitive, and spiritual. Therapy can help you be mindful of your experiences, your emotions and your thought patterns, have compassion with yourself, develop resilience and hopefulness and get you back to living the life you desire.

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.

Kicking the habits of thinking, feeling, and behaving that contribute to depression can seem like a monumental task. With an estimate of 50,000 thoughts a day there is a lot of opportunity to get stuck in negatives thoughts of anger, fear, worry, and pessimism. With the possibility of a genetic component and the effects of role modeling treating depression becomes even more complex. With a combined approach of cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, emotional release and relaxation skills training it is possible to find solutions for depression and to develop alternatives that contribute to happiness, both personal and relational. The joy of living in the present moment can be yours.
