Clients usually experience a progressive decline in mood, which can impact their emotions, the quality of their sleep, relationships (they may even begin to withdraw from others), and have persistent negative thoughts. Many clients prefer to explore viable holistic and integrative strategies before trying medication. In our collaboration, we will design a plan to explore possible options, strategies to strengthen effective coping mechanisms, and identify a plan to enhance the opportunity for recovery.

Symptoms of depression can sometimes be devastating and cause an inability to function and at other times can be mild but chronic. Depression counseling with me involves talk therapy along with mind/body therapy that helps release whatever stuck patterns and negative beliefs that may be contributing to the low self-esteem, lack of motivation and energy, hopelessness, isolation, sleeping and eating problems. Using a holistic approach, it can be important to look at biological, psychological and social/external factors that may be causing the depression and make sure that each area is addressed. Depression may also be accompanied by anxiety and I have extensive experience treating both issues.

Depression and anxiety often occur together and treatment is similar from a cognitive view. However, treating depression requires some special approaches to stop the cycle of negative thinking, loss of energy, and feelings of hopelessness and guilt. My approach is to first explore if there are events or situations that might explain the depression. When there are no apparent reasons for depression, then it is likely that there is a biological or genetic underpinning. Most important is for the person suffering from depression to recognize that treatments can and do work to break the depressive cycle.

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.

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 am an Emotionally Focused therapist (EFT). Research shows that those who suffer from depression actually benefit quite well from EFT therapy. Depression can be very isolating. The pain of isolation is inherently traumatizing. We are meant to be in relationship with others. I work with indiviudals and couples who struggle with depression by strengthening their relationship so that there is a deeper felt sense that the person who is suffering from depression can experience that they do matter, that they are important, that they are cared for and loved by another. This helps create a more secure attachment to self and others which is therapeutic and needed for healing.

Depression is accompanied by sadness or despair. It can be extremely difficult to endure, especially since Christians are taught to "count it all joy." In some cases, there may be a chemical imbalance which will require medical intervention. However, having someone walk this painful journey with you as a guide and provide a safe place to share the pain has proven helpful.

There some ways of thinking about depression that you may find empowering and enable you to work your way through the fog and back to an active and productive life.

All our feelings begin with thoughts, just like depression. I provide a safe non-judgmental place to therapeutically process life experiences and negative thoughts that lead us to feel depressed, unloved and unworthy. We used to think that increasing a strong self-esteem fights depression. Studies now show that self-esteem can be harmful. Instead, we are now learning that self-compassion creates a strong foundation where one can learn to become content in whatever situation they find themselves in. Through therapeutic mindfulness you can learn to let go of those things that are holding you back, and find your inner joy and contentment.
