Is depression weighing you down? Are you feeling sad, hopeless, tired, irritable and discouraged? When depression takes over, it colors everything in our lives with a negative tinge. People suffering from depression need someone who is warm and caring, and who understands pros and cons of medications. I help people who are depressed to identify the areas where they feel stuck, process the underlying issues, and find a new joy in life. I would be glad to walk with you through depression and help you to come out on the other side.

Understanding that there are different types of depression, different levels of severity, and various causes, I work with each individual to assess what kind of depression they are experiencing and possible causes. Often anxiety and depression occur together. Along with providing a safe, non-judgmental place and therapeutic relationship for people to talk about their depressive feelings/emotions and experience, I also utilize research-based therapies that have proven effective for treating depression and anxiety.

Every person has times of sadness and discouragement, however if these feelings persist for long periods of time depression may result. Depression is like a weight that slows a person down and makes everything seem more difficult and strenuous. Depression can affect a person's ability to work, make decisions, focus, concentrate, sleep, eat and socialize. I have found that A key factor in effectively treating depression is motivation. In the first phase of treatment, I assist clients in finding small and simple ways to generate positive feelings as this provides hope that things can get better. Secondly, I assist clients in unloading or unpacking the issues that are weighing them down.

Depression is accompanied by sadness or despair. It can be extremely difficult to endure, especially since Christians are taught to "count it all joy." In some cases, there may be a chemical imbalance which will require medical intervention. However, having someone walk this painful journey with you as a guide and provide a safe place to share the pain has proven helpful.

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.

Kicking the habits of thinking, feeling, and behaving that contribute to depression can seem like a monumental task. With an estimate of 50,000 thoughts a day there is a lot of opportunity to get stuck in negatives thoughts of anger, fear, worry, and pessimism. With the possibility of a genetic component and the effects of role modeling treating depression becomes even more complex. With a combined approach of cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, emotional release and relaxation skills training it is possible to find solutions for depression and to develop alternatives that contribute to happiness, both personal and relational. The joy of living in the present moment can be yours.

Every life has times of sadness. When that sadness becomes depression, it is important to get support from a therapist. You can’t “just snap out of it,” and the effects can be devastating. Signs that you might be suffering from depression include a depressed mood most of the day, a loss of interest or pleasure in activities you previously enjoyed, poor or excessive, loss of energy, significant increase or decrease in appetite, thoughts of death. If you are experiencing these types of symptoms, don’t wait to get the support you need. Help is available. I provide a compassionate and supportive environment to assess your situation and work together toward relief. Contact me today.

I am an Emotionally Focused therapist (EFT). Research shows that those who suffer from depression actually benefit quite well from EFT therapy. Depression can be very isolating. The pain of isolation is inherently traumatizing. We are meant to be in relationship with others. I work with indiviudals and couples who struggle with depression by strengthening their relationship so that there is a deeper felt sense that the person who is suffering from depression can experience that they do matter, that they are important, that they are cared for and loved by another. This helps create a more secure attachment to self and others which is therapeutic and needed for healing.
