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.

I've worked with depressed clients in every environment from private practice to locked wards over the past couple of decades. I use everything from Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to deep root issues with a Psychodynamic approach. This is what a client recently stated..."I wasn't able to function on my job.I had to have someone else do my work! I'm now doing GREAT at work! Before I was only able to sleep 2-3 hours a night. My sleep's back to normal! No more thoughts of suicide and no more depression! I can't believe it! Now...I'm...EVEN... happy! I've been doing the things you suggested and THEY'VE WORKED! I feel blessed! All this within a few visits?!"

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. First we will assess your symptoms and the impact of the "dark cloud" that is robbing you of joy and energy, then set goals and develop a treatment plan to help you get back to your old self, only better.

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.

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.

When one is struggling with depression, it feels like being at the bottom of a big, black hole, always looking for a way out/up and not finding one. I provide emotional support, administer depression inventories, provide referrals for medication evaluations (if necessary), and help with cognitive processing to change thinking patterns which add to the depression. Don't try to face your depression alone. There is help available!

Depression counseling involves assessing and making appropriate changes in the physical, emotional, and relational aspects of a client's life that are contributing to depressed mood. I work with clients to both remedy the underlying causes and their resulting cognitions, and the lifestyle habits that hinder their recovery. Often it is appropriate to work in conjunction with medical professionals who may suggest medications and/or nutritional supplements to correct the biochemical aspects of depressive episodes. Clients benefit most when their treatment is comprehensive and avoids dealing solely with symptom relief.

Depression can feel overwhelming and keep us from being the person that we want and know we can be. Many times it can be an indicator of difficult and painful relationships or situations in our life. It's important to explore the causes and/or triggers for our depression, and see how the slide into a depressive state has occurred. Rather than feeling stuck, we can start to explore your sadness or lack of motivation and start to rebuild the parts of you that are able to experience a life of happiness and contentment.

Are you feeling a loss of hope or less interest in the things that used to bring you pleasure? While we all get low, persistent sad, anxious, or “empty” feelings may be indicators of depression. When you are experiencing feelings of guilt, worthlessness, or helplessness that aren’t going away, it’s time to get help. Often when people are experiencing these emotions they feel isolated and that life will always be this way I treat people who are experiencing these feelings and help them to address the causes and symptoms associated with their depression, so that they can enjoy life again.
