It is important that we recognize the brain as an organ and that it sometimes becomes unbalanced. When we are experiencing depression, sometimes the chemicals in our brains have become unbalanced and we aren't sure why. Other times, we experienced a traumatic or upsetting event that led to depression. Whatever the cause, there is hope (even when it doesn't feel like it).

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.

In treating depression I use a holistic eclectic approach depending on what works for each individual. In therapy we may focus on the underlying root causes of depression perhaps stemming from childhood issues, trauma, and relationships with parents or caregivers. We may focus on cognitive behavorial techniques relating how thoughts can affect feelings and behavoir. We may focus on current interpersonal relationships and how they play a role in your depression. We may focus on other current life stressors and develop new coping strategies for dealing with stress. My goal is to support you and assist you as you climb out of depression's often times debilitating symptoms.

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.

Some established theories about what causes depression include “Anger turned inward”, “early Object Loss”, and “the inability to Grieve”. It think it is no coincidence that Depression and Anger are two of the stages of Grief which Kubler-Ross identified as a normal aspects of resolving significant loss. Normal Grief and Bereavement can become complicated by any kind of overwhelming or traumatic experience. I find that Somatic approaches such as Sensorimotor Psychotherpy are ideal for working with Depression, as it reconnects us with the deeper natural healing resources available to us when we pay attention to the wisdom of the body as it communicates on multiple levels.

I help people struggling with depression by helping them to explore the history/causes of their depression, normalize and validate their emotions, create solutions to real life problems when applicable, and to create and grow hope & optimism. When depression appears to be the result of a biological problem like thyroid issues or chemical imbalances I help clients to find doctors who can evaluate them and then work with them on issues related to their depression. Medication tends to help with the symptoms of depression but doesn't do much to address the underlying thoughts, feelings, and history that have caused or contributed to the depression.

Depression is usually about the past. Such as, things that have happened to you, losses you have had, things that have been said to you or by you. Bad memories get us down yet we do not have to stay in that place of sadness. Also, depression has no energy so it is difficult to do the things we need to do in order to feel better. Take the first step and make an appointment. Each step leads to another step. Depression is very treatable.
