Depression is a signal from our internal system telling us we need to stop. What we need to stop may need to be discovered still, and therapy can help us to do just that. Depression tells us that some part of us feels hopeless, powerless and despairing, in light of the conditions or circumstances we are facing, and that nothing we can do will change that. I believe that we can address those feelings and together, we can find a way through the darkness of depression and help it to see and feel the power of our presence together. Let's not be afraid of what it might say, and instead appreciate it as a messenger and together, I believe we can hear its dilemma and help you to find a way through!

I often work with people who lack self-confidence, feel "stuck" or unmotivated, experience feelings of helplessness and sadness, and struggle with interpersonal relationships. Sometimes people experience these feelings in one area of their life and sometimes they feel this way in general. I help facilitate a greater understanding of why you might be feeling this way. I also provide strategies of ways of relating to yourself and others that is more skillful, compassionate, and prosocial. This often results in experiencing greater joyfulness, self-trust, and kindness toward yourself, as well as self-confidence, effectiveness, and agency as you move through the world.

Psychotherapy can be used to treat a depression. Therapy can help lift the depression, sometimes forever, sometimes for a period of time. Therapy works by addressing some of the causes of depression. Those things that seem to be related to depression include: difficult relationships in the past and present, traumatic experiences from the recent and distant past, emotions that are unexpressed in healthy ways, and ways of thinking that were learned from those around you, from both childhood and adulthood. The problem here is that if you are depressed, you may not feel like you deserve treatment. Your depression may have increased a sense of hopelessness, and low self-esteem. I

Depression (and anxiety) are normal responses to painful environments. Are finding it difficult to be motivated? Are you lower energy than you should be? Is it hard to get out of bed? Do you get irritable for no reason at times? If so, you may be suffering from depression. I attack depression from two angles. One strategy is using CBT strategies to help you manage some of your symptoms. I also use EMDR, attachment based psychotherapy, and body / nervous system informed strategies to help you transform some of the underlying brain mis-wiring that is there from your past. Don't find somebody that just stares at you and lets you continue to be depressed. Let's do something about this!

Depression can manifest itself in different ways. It's most well-known manifestation is tearfulness, isolation, low self-esteem, hopelessness, and negative self-talk. Depression can also show up as irritability, patterns of avoidance, aggression, and anxiety. Because of 1) the more popular face of depression and 2) the stigma attached to it, people encounter difficulty in reaching out for and receiving help. It can be a really frustrating, hopeless place to feel stuck. I will help you to come to a place of understanding your depression and give you tools to understand and manage the symptoms.

While most of us feel gloomy sometimes, for many, these feelings don't last very long. With depression, these feelings can affect your daily life and ability to function, and they can last a long time. Without help, depression can impact your relationships, job peformance, and other aspects of your life. Since depression doesn't always look the same or start for the same reason, I can help you identify and understand your own triggers as well as develop effective pathways to recovery.

I am of the opinion that feelings of depression are most offten associated with unexpressed or unacknowledged deep-seated feelings of anger that we hold on to for one reason or other. Because every human behavior has a purpose, holding on to one's anger in the form of depression has some "secondary" gain for the individual, perhaps putting one in the victim's role and otherwise allowing us to feel a sense of control in situtions where we may feel out of control. However, there is a great price to pay for this in terms of a loss of aliveness and joy in one's life. I help people who are stuck in their depression to get to the other side.

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.

Depression often really just means "repression". It is usually a sign that the human system is overwhelmed with thoughts & emotions that have become unmanageable. A shift in circumstances is usually needed for people suffering from depression AND expressing emotions through a variety of outlets is extremely helpful.
