In our life journey we inevitably come across a period of darkness, depression or lack of motivation. Sometimes it is triggered by an event or failed relationship and sometimes we come to the realization that much of our lives has already been lived in this gloominess. Through the counseling process you can share what you've truly been experiencing and explore the depths of your depression in a private, safe environment all while coming to an understanding of what it means to be good to yourself. And in turn others.

Depression is stigmatized, leaving sufferers feeling isolated. Lack of education regarding depression causes others to assume its under the person's control; when often there are biological factors blocking healing. Callous terms like "Snap out of it" leave the sufferer feeling all the more hopeless, because they can't snap out of it any more than a diabetic can snap out of diabetes without medical attention or treatment. Depression can be the result of a depletion of significant hormones in the brain. The Word of God is a powerful tool I use with clients to stifle the negative cognitions of depression. I refer clients for medical intervention when depression is not responding to therapy.

Depression can feel like a lead weight that you carry around with you day in and day out. It can be hard to remember that you ever felt better or to believe that you will ever feel good again. One of the most valuable things that therapy can do for depressed people is to inspire hope, to restore the confidence that one can find or recover a positive outlook on life. We do this by exploring the origins of your depression and putting your current feelings into perspective. You'll be encouraged to find your strengths and inner resources and harness them to pull you through to a more lively and empowered state of mind.

I like to work collaboratively with my clients with a special emphasis on going at their own pace. When feelings of hopelessness, sadness, or lack of motivation is a primary concern, it is important to help clients find goals that they feel they are actually able to achieve. Providing a supportive, non-judgmental and peaceful atmosphere in therapy can help a client explore some of the more challenging struggles that has made him or her feel stuck, either in their personal goals or in important close relationships. Finding new strategies or coping skills to replace the ones that have stopped working becomes the new goal and transformations in outlook and relationships can begin.

Sadness vs. Depression? Which is it? Treatable YES! Everyone feels sad or 'blue' on occassion. People tend to grieve over a loss, but usually, the feelings of grief tend to lessen over time. Depression occurs when feelings of extreme sadness or despair last for at least 2 weeks or longer and tend to interfere with activities of everyday living. Deperessed feelings include helplessness, hopelessness and even thoughts of death and possibly suicide. People with these feelings may feel overwhelmed. Causes may be from body chemistry which influence mood and thought. Chronic illness can accompany depression. Start feeling better. Give me a call and make an appointment now. Dr. Sobo

Depression Sucks! I mean this literally. It sucks the energy, motivation, and pleasure right out of your life. If you are suffering with depression, it is easy to fall into a negative feedback loop that perpetuates the depression. In treatment we will break this loop and get you into a positive feedback loop, so that you can begin to feel better. At first it can feel like trying to push a rock up a hill, but your therapist will support you until you are able to take small steps to feel better.

When treating depression, I employ cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) therapy which is empirically validated in research studies to help people with depression. By modifying routines and behavior and learning how to challenge dysfunctional thoughts, clients are helped to improve mood in a relatively short time. This approach is collaborative, active, and supportive. Clients are usually asked to keep records, complete worksheets, test new behaviors, run experiments, and report back on the outcome.

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.
