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.

When one is struggling with depression, it feels like being at the bottom of a big, black hole, always looking for a way out/up and not finding one. I provide emotional support, administer depression inventories, provide referrals for medication evaluations (if necessary), and help with cognitive processing to change thinking patterns which add to the depression. Don't try to face your depression alone. There is help available!

First, it's important to me to understand what my clients mean by "depression" because how one client experiences depression can be very different than another client. This is necessary so I can customize the strategies I use for each specific client based on their unique experience of depression. Ultimately, my clients can expect to discover real-world steps they can take to feel not just "less depressed" but better about their life - and more positive and hopeful.

It is a brief, attachment-focused psychotherapy that centers on resolving interpersonal problems and symptomatic recovery. It is an empirically supported treatment that follows a highly structured and time-limited approach and is intended to be completed within 12–16 weeks. IPT is based on the principle that relationships and life events impact mood and that the reverse is also true.

Feeling lost? Feeling trapped? Feeling low- motivation and a lack of hope? Feeling like everything takes more effort and energy than you have to give? Feeling isolated and alone? Depression can feel overwhelming, unmanageable, lonely, and daunting. We can reach for unhealthy, self-destructive coping mechanisms during times like these just to get by. Together we can uncover root causes of these feelings, discover unhealthy behavior patterns that have been developed, and start to create a path that is untangled with desirable, healthy behavior patterns creating feelings of hope, motivation, self- worth and clarity.

So many coping skills out there focus on reducing the energy. What if the problem is you’re struggling to find energy because depression is zapping you of it? What do you use to cope, then? I’ve been working with clients for years to translate common coping techniques to fit their needs and experience. I’m here to help you, too. We start with what hasn’t been working for you and transform it into something that does.

Depression can be insidious and chronic causing you to feel like you can't connect, you're missing out on life or you're "going through the motions". This is no way to live! Don't settle for feeling detached and disconnected from your life, missing true joy and adventure. Tools can help you feel connected again and release buried feelings that keep you depressed. When depression becomes acute, you can't slow down, relax, can't sleep or sleep too much, feel a deep sadness, heaviness. Using tools for acute depression really helps you get back on track!

I believe there are at least two kinds of depression. One is more biological or "hard-wired" and may need a biological-level intervention. Therefore, I may refer you to be evaluated by a doctor or psychiatrist for medication. The other kind of depression often arises from injured relationships or facing obstacles in life. Sometimes, depression can be a combination of both. If your depression results from a hurt relationship or failures in life, I can help you to rise above it. As a Family Therapist, I treat problems through a relationship-oriented perspective. Therefore, I may be able to address the kinds of relational issues that often worsen depression.

Depression can cause experiences of lonliness, sadness, agitation, tearfulness, hopelessness, and decreased motivation. Together we can work to identify potential causes of depression symptoms and how these symptoms may be impacting your life. In most cases a core belief about ourself or the world can cause depression to persist. Some of these beliefs can include but are not limited to "I'm not good enough", "noone cares about me", "it's not safe to express my emotions", and "bad things always happen to me". Taking a collaborative approach we will incorporate both self compassion strategies and tangible skills based interventions as a way to work on improving your mood.
