Depression is a crippling experience that often goes unidentified by ourselves or those in our lives for way too long. It is self-sustaining, as it causes us to withdraw from our lives and from possible support. Mild to moderate depression may be treated with traditional "talk" psychotherapy, although severe depression may require pharmaceutical intervention. I work with you both to make sense of your depression and take steps to challenge it and move through it, into a better quality of life. We will talk. We will work somatically, with your breath and your body, to move stuck emotions and energy and remove the blocks to getting back into your life. Depression IS treatable. Seek out help.

Depression is a complex condition that involves changes in mood, behavior and thinking. It can effect our most important personal and work related relationships. Physically, it can interrupt our sleep, appetite and energy level. Sometimes, a medical solution is needed and other times a psychological approach is best while other times a combination of both is the optimal treatment. As a psychotherapist with 32 years experience, I have helped many people overcome their depression through proven treatments that change the patterns of thinking, acting, and relating that tend to maintain depressive moods. Psychotherapy can greatly benefit the person seeking relief from this condition.

Many of us will experience depression at some point during our lifetime. Depression has many different causes, including loss, life transitions, divorce, childhood abuse, traumatic experiences, genetics, illness, and many others. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the first tool in helping you to feel better. I will compassionately and supportively help you to identify and get to the root of the underlying thoughts, feelings and experiences in your life which may be contributing to your depression. In an atmosphere of non-judgment, you will begin to explore, process, and integrate these contributing factors, allowing you to feel a new sense of peace, lightness, and optimism.

We all feel down sometimes. Real depression is when we can’t get back up. Or it’s when we do so only after great effort, and even then it’s not all the way back. If sadness, hopelessness, and helplessness get in your way, that’s depression. Even mild or periodic depression can interfere in your life. It can also increase conflicts at work and in your relationships. Therapy helps, even without medication. Some people may benefit from medication, but that’s on an individual basis, and research shows that medication works best when it’s combined with therapy. We’ll examine what causes the depression, what you’ve tried, and what else can be done. Depression doesn’t have to stop your living.

When working with depression I take an eclectic approach. At the outset of therapy I work with the client to establish concrete goals. I employ various techniques including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and take a psychodynamic approach to examine the underlying causes of depression. I believe depression should be approached in a holistic manner and often times requires incorporating other techniques and interventions outside of the clinical setting.

It can often seem like society expects us to be happy and positive at all times, that any admission of sadness or a loss of motivation, energy, or engagement with life is a personal failure. But Depression isn't a personal failure, and it is also more than just "feeling sad". If you find yourself down in the hole of disconnection, surrounded by a fog that is interfering with your life and relationships, you need a hand to help you climb out. A trained therapist understands the mechanics of depression and can help you understand it and find strategies to make your way up and out of it, and back into the light. Please contact me so we can begin to work on this process together.

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.

Depression, or feelings of depression, is one of the most common reasons one seeks out the services of a therapist. Depression can be detrimental to one’s daily functioning if not appropriately addressed and can ultimately lead to other mental health issues. Depression can be triggered by a wide array of day-to-day issues as well as immediate issues. Such issues can present either with delayed onset or immediately. Depression can also be impacted by one’s sexuality and sexual experience. I appreciate you trusting your therapeutic needs with me.

Finding a psychotherapist is like finding an ally; you don't have to bear the weight of your problems alone. Psychotherapy for depression and anxiety can offer hope for a changed perspective and happiness.

Many clients enter therapy feeling depressed or overwhelmed. After assessing for safety issues and/or the need for a psychiatric evaluation, I work with cients to understand the stressors or underlying issues (or events in the past) that have produced the depression. I work with the client to challenge their feelings of helplessness and focus on actions and beliefs that promote feelings of strength and hope. I help them redefine themselves as capable and valuable; moving from hopelessness to hopefulness, and finding the internal and external tools and strength to battle depressive, negative views of themselves that may have been burdening and depressing them for many years.

Many people have felt sad or depressed at times. Our moods go up and down based on our experiences, physical wellbeing, affected by our day to day encounters. Feeling depressed can be a normal reaction to loss, life's labors, or a wounded self-esteem. But when feelings of extreme sadness -- including feeling hopeless, and worthless last for many days and then to weeks and keep you from performing normally, your depression may be something more than sadness. It may very well be clinical depression – which is a treatable medical condition. A sign of depression is either depressed mood or loss of interest in activities you once enjoyed for more than just a few days. In addition, the depressive symptoms need to cause clinically significant distress or...(view profile to read more)

You might be experiencing profound loss and feel isolated and alienated from those around you. Perhaps the loneliness you feel comes from a profound sense of not being fully known and understood. Because every human being and each individual's process is unique, I won't put you through a series of pre-determined exercises or fit you into some theoretical model. I work in collaboration with you to explore, discover, illumine, and heal the wounds that have kept you from expanding into the fullness of who you are meant to be.

Clients usually experience a progressive decline in mood, which can impact their emotions, the quality of their sleep, relationships (they may even begin to withdraw from others), and have persistent negative thoughts. Many clients prefer to explore viable holistic and integrative strategies before trying medication. In our collaboration, we will design a plan to explore possible options, strategies to strengthen effective coping mechanisms, and identify a plan to enhance the opportunity for recovery.

Depression is very common, and often is a symptom of other problems that are going on. When I work with depression, I assess how long it has been present, what the root causes are if they are known, and what solutions have been attempted so far. Usually I will ask for a thorough evaluation by your doctor, because there are many underlying physical conditions that can cause feelings of depression. This does not mean that you necessarily need an antidepressant medication. Some people find them very helpful, and others don't want to add a medication to their systems. Your preference is important, and we will work with it. Depression sucks the joy out of life, and therapy can help!

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.

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.

Depression can be the result of flawed thinking patterns which are difficult to recognize by yourself. A great many of your negative feelings may be based on thinking errors. Thinking errors can cause unnecessary pain. Using Cognitive Behavior Therapy we can uncover your irrational beliefs which are causing you pain and replace them with more reality based thoughts which will lead to a more positive outlook and feeling hopeful and less depressed. Some people can do this work alone, but having a trained listener, such myself, would simplify and speed up the process. Don't you want to feel better as soon as possible?

Most of us get depressed at times in our lives. Sometimes, we need some guidance to help us through these difficult periods. I believe that the client/therapist relationship is very important in dealing with depression. If you make the decision to seek psychotherapy to help you deal with your depression, I think it is necessary to find a therapist that you can relate to. I work very hard to establish that bond and then explore your history and reasons why the depression exists. Using various techniques, my goal is to help you gain insight into your issues, learn better coping skills and ways of thinking and then help you move forward in your life to attain your goals.
