My philosophical work on the nature of hope and despair is particularly well suited for working with clients suffering from depression. While my explicit aim is cultivating and creating a space of genuine hope, I also believe it is essential to recognize the reasons for despair and to diligently work through those circumstances. Compassionate understanding and patience facilitate hope.

There are two emotions which can be utilized in the process of healing from trauma: anger and sadness. Sadness can be a very effective vehicle for healing. The only problem with sadness is that it is such a short leap from there to depression. Sadness heals; depression does not. Depression can keep a person stuck in the same place for years without any progress. You must be very careful not to fall into depression when you decide to explore your feelings about the negative experiences of your life. Unfortunately, many people find the difference between sadness and depression to be obscure at best, and they often vacillate between the two. We encourage you to be very careful of depression becau....

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.

Cognitive Behavioral therapy is the treatment of choice for depression. How you think effects how you feel, so we will work together to alter your irrational and non-productive thoughts and behaviors.

With assessment as a tool, we can determine if you simply have a depressed mood due to a loss or if it is clinical depression. We find that clients experience depression sometimes as a result of shame, guilt, or anger directed toward the self. Because the best treatment for depression is medication + therapy, If we determine that you are experiencing the symptoms of clinical depression, we may refer you to obtain medication. Using therapeutic tools such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or Acceptance Commitment Therapy, we've seen clients recover, interrupting the patterns of thinking and behaving that have maintained their symptoms of depression.

Depression can be insidious and chronic causing you to feel like you can't connect, you're missing out on life or you're "going through the motions". This is no way to live! Don't settle for feeling detached and disconnected from your life, missing true joy and adventure. Tools can help you feel connected again and release buried feelings that keep you depressed. When depression becomes acute, you can't slow down, relax, can't sleep or sleep too much, feel a deep sadness, heaviness. Using tools for acute depression really helps you get back on track!

Depression is often a result of unprocessed losses in life. Taking the time to work through those things that have not been properly grieved, can greatly lessen the amount of depression you feel. A trained professional can come alongside you and help you sort through what has accumulated and is now a burden that inhibits living a full and satisfying life. We often carry a 'preserved mood' from our childhood that represents a place we were left alone to process, without the ability to do so. We can visit those old, stuck places and help free you up to move forward in life.

In looking at the roots of depression I have found a strong correlation to fear, pain, and at times loss. When we begin to address the root causes underlying depression we may also find that your voice (inner and outer) has been stifled - feeling trapped and alone from people and things. When we sit together we will be able to suss out the difference between being alone vs. loneliness.
