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.

Board Certified Clinical Psychologist

Cedars-Sinai Medical Tower, 8631 West 3rd Street (suite 1100-E), Los Angeles, California

Depression often results following some type of loss. However, often it is not the loss itself that causes the depression, but the person's assessment and thoughts about the loss that produces feelings of depression. Cognitive therapy, as practiced by Dr. Levine, can help reverse such clinical depression. It is normal to feel sadness following a loss or unexpected negative life event and cognitive therapy is frequently an excellent method for insuring that normal sadness does not morph into clinical depression. If medication might help in addition to therapy, Dr. Levine will help direct you to a competent psychopharmacologist to provide this additional assistance, if you choose.

Clinical Psychologist

420 South Beverly Drive Suite 100-05, Beverly Hills, California

My belief is that depression is born from unexplored feelings intersecting with past and present life events. I gently guide clients to deeply explore core belliefs and emotions that are impacting how they view themselves and the world around them. As we challenge the myth and mystery of these feelings and beliefs, a new way of moving through the world begins to unfold and recovery can begin.

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.

In treating mood problems, the most important piece in collaborating is to find rays of hope in your life. What did you love to do before that you no longer enjoy? What are/were your interests in life? Who are the people in your life you want to feel closer to? What are your strengths? How can we interupt habitual feelings of hopelessnes, by changing the way you think about triggers that lead you to depressed feelings? How can we challenge negative or unrealistic thinking? With sensitive, open communication in sessins, we can find answers to these questions that can curtail habitual depressive thought and feelings. Coping skills can be taught and mastered.

Licensed Psychotherapist

6310 San Vicente Blvd.Ste 410, Los Angeles, California

If the people in your life haven't ever experienced depression (which is different than being depressed), they can't understand why you can't get over it, move on with your life, or do the things that you used to do. Some people even get into "cheerleading" (c'mon-- you can do it!). That's why I work to understand your depression and help you to manage the feelings of helplessness, despair, and frustration related to depression--little by little, day by day, you might start to get better under my care as I would do my best to understand what you're going through.

We all feel down sometimes. Real depression is when we can’t get back up. Or it’s when we do so only after great effort, and even then it’s not all the way back. If sadness, hopelessness, and helplessness get in your way, that’s depression. Even mild or periodic depression can interfere in your life. It can also increase conflicts at work and in your relationships. Therapy helps, even without medication. Some people may benefit from medication, but that’s on an individual basis, and research shows that medication works best when it’s combined with therapy. We’ll examine what causes the depression, what you’ve tried, and what else can be done. Depression doesn’t have to stop your living.

Depression can be debilitating and seldom goes away by itself. It is often a result of built-up feelings of hurt and anger that have not been expressed outwardly or have turned toward the self. It is unfortunate that many people go through their lives experiencing depression when something can be done about it. When depressed, because we feel lethargic and lack energy, it is often accompanied by feelings of helplessness and hopelessness - a feeling that one can never escape it. There is hope however, and together we can help get the joy that life has been missing back. Feel free to call my office for a free 15 minute telephone consultation at 800-474-1445.

2716 S Vermont Ave, Suite 9, Los Angeles, California

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.

Depression Counselor

Mimi Shagaga, PsyD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

321 S Beverly Dr, Suite T, Beverly Hills, California

When working with depression I take an eclectic approach. At the outset of therapy I work with the client to establish concrete goals. I employ various techniques including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and take a psychodynamic approach to examine the underlying causes of depression. I believe depression should be approached in a holistic manner and often times requires incorporating other techniques and interventions outside of the clinical setting.

Tom Danis, LPCC, M.ED

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

3201 Wilshire Blvd. Suite 203, Santa Monica, California

Depression robs us of joy and the ability to thrive in life. When I work with a client suffering from depression, we discover ways to both alleviate the symptoms that make daily life such a struggle and look at the underlying issues that are causing the depression. Gestalt therapy builds our awareness to the beliefs and past experiences that interrupt our ability to get the sense of connection in life needed to not be depressed. My approach helps people have greater awareness of the dynamics within them that lead to their depression so they can get at the underlying issues and truly change their lives.

Depression Counselor

Lauren Muhlheim, Psy.D., FAED, CEDS

Clinical Psychologist

4929 Wilshire Boulevard, Suite 245, Los Angeles, California

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.
