There are many different factors that lead to depressive symptoms, and often time some symptoms can be alleviated by addressing environmental issues. When that is not enough, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has been found to be one of the most effective treatments for depression. This is typically the course of treatment I will engage with for clients suffering from depressive symptoms; however, I like to do a comprehensive assessment to determine if other treatments might be more effective for an individual's needs. When depressive symptoms are significantly impacting a person's life (i.e., effecting sleeping, eating, daily functioning) medication combined with therapy can be effective.

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.

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.

Clinical depression is different than just having the "blues" or feeling "down" for a short while. The prophet, Elijah, is a good example of how serious depression can be (see 1 Kings 19:4-14). If you are experiencing the following on most days over the past two weeks, we advise contacting us: Feeling sad or empty; diminished interest or pleasure in almost all activities; a change in body weight of more than 5% within the past month; sleeping more/less than usual; fatigue or loss of energy; feelings of worthlessness or inappropriate guilt; diminished ability to concentration or indecisive; recurrent thoughts of death.

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.
