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.

It can often seem like society expects us to be happy and positive at all times, that any admission of sadness or a loss of motivation, energy, or engagement with life is a personal failure. But Depression isn't a personal failure, and it is also more than just "feeling sad". If you find yourself down in the hole of disconnection, surrounded by a fog that is interfering with your life and relationships, you need a hand to help you climb out. A trained therapist understands the mechanics of depression and can help you understand it and find strategies to make your way up and out of it, and back into the light. Please contact me so we can begin to work on this process together.

Does life seem bleak right now? Have you lost interest in the things you used to enjoy? Do you feel sad most of the time? Do you have little to look forward to, and a lot you’d prefer not to look back on? When you are convinced that things will never get better no matter what, you are depressed. I can give you tools and teach you how to use them to dig yourself out of the emotional ditch you’re in. It is possible to feel hope again when you know how.

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.

Many people struggle with depression, men and women as well as children and adolescents. Depression needs to be assessed for severity and treated appropriately. The standard of care may include medication and talk therapy involving Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which can be very effective for most clients. Depression often masks frustration and anger or severe negative thoughts which can be explored in treatment. Most people benefit from talk therapy and find relief. Other family members may also be included in the treatment if that is appropriate.

Depression can feel overwhelming, debilitating and just plain no fun. Sometimes there is a clear reason for depression such as a loss or a difficult transition. Sometimes the reason is unclear. Whatever your situation, my goal as your therapist will be to help you better understand the source of the pain and use concrete tools and skills to help you overcome it. Using a variety of methods, we can find ways to help you feel a renewed sense of purpose, confidence, and joy in your life. I offer EMDR therapy which is a highly-researched, effective form of therapy that often creates positive change in fewer sessions than talk therapy alone. Contact me for more details.

Depression can be painful for the person suffering from it as well as those closest to them. When we are depressed, previously enjoyable activities can appear meaningless. We lose interest in connecting with others (often exacerbating symptoms). Furthermore, it can feel as though there is "no point" to life. We all have periods of time when we feel less than ideal, but depression is severe and enduring. Counseling provides an atmosphere where it is safe to discuss these feelings.

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 is usually caused from helplessness in the face of overwhelming situations. This can be a learned response from unresolved traumas in your past. My approach to depression is multifaceted, beginning with getting to know you and understanding your life and its hardships. Very quickly, I like to move into using Somatic Experiencing to help resolve past trauma and retrain your nevous system to be able to re-regulate itself in the face of what used to be overwhelming circumstances. I have seen a lot of people rise up out of the hell of depression, with and without medication, to live the lives they were meant to live.

Depression can be so debilitating. Having a safe place to talk about what has happened, your hopes, your worries with someone who can come along side of you to share the difficulties can be really helpful. Sometimes we can get stuck in ways we think of ourselves and others and feel like there is no way out. Exploring these ideas with someone who can really be present for you can help. Sometimes we don't realize we have strengths and options for ourselves. Counseling can help uncover those resources and provide hope.

Depression do not need to be viewed as “defects,” but rather as the expression of what one thinks and feels. Depression is also the expression of the patient’s strengths and one no longer have to feel ashamed of their symptoms, as if they were the manifestation of some “mental disorder” or defect. If depression symptoms are not addressed they can create relationship problems, family sufferings and lost work productivity. Depression is a highly treatable illness, with psychotherapy, coping and cognitive-behavioral techniques.

Depression feels like walking through mud. We lose ourselves and wonder if we will ever be found again. Often depression is a result of unexpressed negative emotions (which we were never allowed to safely express in our family of origin - so we swallowed it instead). I am very comfortable with the shame and humility that the human condition sometimes hands us - and I can sit with my clients while they work through unexpressed sadnesses - and ultimately find joy in their lives.
