I believe that there is a purpose to the symptoms that you are suffering. I work from a psychodynamic perspective and what that means is that I will make a space for you to explore all of your feelings and help you become aware of unconscious thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and patterns that may be causing your depression. I also help patients become more aware of inner strengths and resources that they may be equally unconscious of. Discovering these strengths gives one the ability to confront unresolved issues that have caused suffering. The increase in awareness leads to a decrease in depression---resulting ultimately in an increase in life-satisfaction.

My approach to working with depression utilizes a combination of depth psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and existential therapy. Depression is the soul speaking of its pain and isolation through the body. My clients benefit immensely from learning to listen to the unconscious through dream analysis and the use of active imagination. CBT provides a tool for clients to identify negative thoughts and replace them with life affirming thoughts. Through existential work my clients learn to take responsibility for and take charge of their depression. For those clients who are taking anti-depressant medication I work closely with their psychiatrists to maximize outcomes.

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.

Many clients who come to therapy are suffering from depression at some level. Often, "talk therapy" is sufficient to help them overcome negative thinking and get back on track. Sometimes, the feelings of sadness or hopelessness are the result of a recent (or distant) life event. Other clients report having always experienced life in this way. Depending on the circumstances and the severity of the symptoms, a referral to a physician for a consultation about medication is necessary. Even in those cases, having a trusted, experienced counselor to talk to on a regular basis (in conjunction with the use of medications), can be invaluable.

Research shows that the most effective treatment for depression is psychotherapy. Depression can range from feeling down to major symptoms such as having trouble even getting out of bed or contemplating suicide (if you have suicidal thoughts or plans, call the National Suicide Prevention Line at 1-800-273-8255). Online counseling is effective for depression because it is easy to access: you can start treatment without even leaving the house.

Clinical depression is not something that someone "gets over" or can manage on their own. It is real, painful and harmful. I will provide you the tools to help you overcome this debilitating condition. We work on stopping and changing those negative thoughts that can spin out of control, and also how to change some behaviors, such as being more active and social. It's difficult but we can do it together.

Suffering from depression can be one of the most challenging experiences that one can face. Every day takes an enormous amount of effort and can feel like walking through molasses. One can feel hopeless, helpess, not enjoying day to day activites, becoming more isolated and having difficulty concentrating. The good news is that there are treatment approaches that can be very helpful in healing depression to bring the joy and vitality back into one's life. These treatments can enable the client to reingage in life, connect with loved ones, and experience greater happiness and fullfillment.

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.
