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.

I can honestly say that every single person I have met has been discouraged / depressed at some point in their lives. It happens. Why? Because things do not always go our way. Because we cannot plan for every thing that will come up. Because sometimes, even I may not have all the answers. It does happen! That's ok though. If you don't have the answers reach out to those you can help.

Depression should be seen as normal in that all of us experience depression periodically. Too much depression is discouraging and can be treated. Find out of your depression is "normal" or clinically troubling. Relief from depression is available for most depressed persons. Often depressed persons are understimuated with not enough fun or activity. On the other hand depression can be seen as the opposite of "expression" where thoughts, feelings and needs are not sufficiently acknowledge and expressed.

Sometimes "talk therapy" alone can relieve depression and most clients find it to be helpful. I do utilize cognitive therapy when dealing with depression because our thoughts have a great deal to do with our feelings and there is evidence that this treatment approach to depression can be quite effective. When necessary, I will provide a psychiatric referral for an evaluation to determine whether or not you are a candidate for medication.

Untreated depression can lead to destructive and often fatal behaviors if an individual has little or no social supports or coping skills intact, as well as vary between age, gender & cultural groups. Often what many depressed people feel is empty, hopeless, helpless and completely alone, even if family or others are physical nearby. Often clients report that they cannot function with what would be considered daily simple tasks, i.e., bathing, getting out of bed, and even making meals or eating can be taxing. Feeling excessively tired and worn out has been common with chronic depression. Psychotherapy can possibly make all the difference when individuals feel life is no longer worth living.

Depression can feel like quicksand. It can be a full body experience that leaves you gasping for air. And it is often difficult to explain to others what you are feeling. We would all love a quick fix - to hear the steps or magic words to make us feel better. I offer longer-term work that gets at the root of the problem. Real change that is sustainable takes time. I believe in the therapy process and will partner with you to facilitate healing and a new sense of freedom.

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.

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.

Wouldn't it be great if we could take a pill to fix all our problems? While medication can be an important tool in fighting depression, psychotherapy and medication is normally the "gold standard." Forming a relationship with a therapist in a confidential and safe environment is an essential step on the road to recovery. Your therapist may end up knowing you better than anyone else in your life. Finding a "good fit" is vital. I seek to provide such an environment to facilitate self-discovery and to make change for the better.

All of us occasionally experience feelings of sadness. Most of the time, these painful interludes clear rapidly. Clinical depression, however, is an extremely painful state which is characterized by intense feelings of hopelessness and despair. When this mood state occurs, professional help is needed. My therapeutic process allows the here and now experience between therapist and client to reveal how present day thoughts, feelings, and beliefs formed in the past influence your current life and affect your mood. Bringing to light the cognitive processes that may be holding the depression in place help you gain the clarity and control needed to restore your health. Please feel free to call.

CBT is a particularly effective treatment for depression, both as a combined approach with medication and as a stand alone treatment. Participating in CBT therapy for depression can help you restructure negative thought patterns and get out of negative cycles of thinking. Changing the way you think can help you interpret your environment and interactions with others in a more effective and positive way, improving the way you feel about yourself and helping improve your relationships with others. It may also help you recognize things that may be contributing to the depression and help you start doing things that lead to a reduction of symptoms and feelings of meaningful happiness.

In our modern society, we have come to see Depression as a problem, something to be treated, avoided, and cured. Have you ever noticed that the more you try to "treat" your depression, the stronger it gets? This is because Depression is a sign, a message, that something in our lives is not working. Just like taking aspirin for a headache won't treat the cause of the headache, just taking medication for Depression won't ultimately free us. It takes deeper work, uncovering the pain and the underlying emotions and experiences that have lead us to this place. Yes, that takes more courage and commitment than simply popping a pill or going for a run. But is actually does cure Depression.
