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.

Depression can have roots in the earliest years of our lives due to hurts at a sensitive age, or can result from current experiences of traumas, losses, and disappointments. Often these two origins dovetail, with current stressors resurrecting earlier levels of depression. A good therapy will take seriously the level and personal experience of depression. Clear introspection into the cause, development of truly effective coping strategies, and support for a process of working through depression is the basis of my therapeutic approach.

Depression can be crippling. By talking with an expert, becoming aware of the specific "kind" of depression (there are many kinds....hormonal, clinical, psychological to name a few ) you can understand the causes. By identifying the causes, your treatment plan will include looking deeper into the situations, people, experiences (past or present) which may be keeping you depressed. For instance, unresolved "anger" is a primary cause for depression. Also "loss" and "guilt". Talking will help. Your therapist will guide you in a direction to help you gain insight into what might be unresolved in your life and help you through it. Knowledge and understanding the causes are the beginning.

I work with a depressed nervous system by working with the body. Often we struggle to sleep, eat, or accomplish relatively simple tasks. Our bodies are stuck with the brake on. When our body thinks it is futile, out mind follows quickly thereafter and we begin to tell ourselves how pointless things are and how worthless we are. I work with the whole body to re-regulate the body to enable you to get back to a whole integrated self.

Depression can rear it's ugly head when we least expect and without being fully aware that it is happening. Losing interest in activities that were once pleasurable, feeling overwhelmed and tired, sleeping in excess can all be signs of depression. Learn skills such as relaxation techniques, changing negative thought processes, and proactive ways of coping with stress to help you get back on the right track.

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.

My approach to treating depression is the psychodynamic approach coupled with Cognitive Behavior Therapy. I work with clients on identifing current life circumstances that may be contributing to the depression. I then help them identify distored thinking patterns or perceptions that lead to depression. Also spend time uncovering past trauma including childhood trauma and use inner healing techniques to help clients uncover and release trauma from the body and correct negative thinking patterns that resulted from the truama.

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.

Depression, just the very word feels hopeless and limited, there is a sense of internal and external collapse of the world. Yet it can also be used as a tremendous starting point to examine one's life, goals, expectations and longings, both current and historical.

Depression can limit a person from thriving. These limitations can be be various and may include experiencing life as hard to get motivated or even wanting to stop existing. Thoughts of suicide are common, but not existing and not thriving can be overcome; depression can be managed. Therapy for depression will reveal the basis for your feelings of hopelessness and helplessness and help you to manage these feelings rather than be managed by them. You don't have to let depression control you. You can, with the help of therapy, manage depression so that you can thrive. Like waking up from a bad dream, you can experience a new life where you are not ruled by depression.

Depression can be experienced at any age and comes in various degrees impacting how we feel about ourselves and others. It can change our mood, eating, sleeping, thinking, and involvement in activities. Many individuals suffer in silence but their mood and behavior reveal a deeper turmoil within themselves. Talking to a trusted person about those inner thoughts is helpful but many friends and family members may not have the knowledge and skills to help you. Seeking a professional counselor can reduce feelings of isolation and provide you with feelings of hope. “Without counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed” Proverbs 15:22.

My philosophical work on the nature of hope and despair is particularly well suited for working with clients suffering from depression. While my explicit aim is cultivating and creating a space of genuine hope, I also believe it is essential to recognize the reasons for despair and to diligently work through those circumstances. Compassionate understanding and patience facilitate hope.

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.

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.

Most clients suffer from some form of depression, due to work, marriage, family, or addiction problems. First if the symptoms are sever we recommend a consultation from a medical doctor. If the client suffers from insomnia, difficulty concentrating, anhedonia, or dramatic weight changes , we strongly suggest the client meet with their medical doctor. Also many people will call because they are struggling with depression, and sometimes it is due to an underlying medical condition, such as anemia, vitamin D deficiency, mono, thyroid condition etc. So we ask clients to request blood test be ordered by their doctor. After the vegetative symptoms are assessed and treated, then we proceed .
