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.

Are you spiraling downward and unable to retain a positive outlook? The effects and perceptions of external circumstances can create internal disturbances. Together, in a secure environment, you will be able to express and explore your inner most thoughts and feelings. By increasing awareness of self defeating negative thoughts and patterns of behavior, we will be able to identify alternative choices of being and relating. Acknowledging and reconfiguring our thoughts is often the path to regaining a healthy sense of self and the future.

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 .

I work with individuals who experience an inner critical voice that attacks them with messages such as: “I am not enough”; “I need to be a better person”; "I cannot trust others". Some explain feeling overly responsible and share that they have difficulty expressing their authentic feelings to others. I help my clients discover that there is plenty of room for every aspect of their personhood. Shame, depression and anxiety dissipate and self-acceptance is the natural byproduct. Letting go of shame and worry leads to greater joy and fulfillment in interpersonal relationships.

I work with depression from both a cognitive behavioral, family systems, and somatic perspective. The cognitive behavioral perspective means that we will examine what things you can do in your life right now to help you feel better including things such as diet, exercise, self care, and relationships. The family systems perspective means that I will help you examine where the depression you are experiencing stems from. Often coping strategies that helped us as a child no longer are working. Somatic experiencing examines the experiences of the body and expands the capacity to tolerate negative bodily states and enjoy positive states. I take a holistic approach to healing.

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 may be caused by many factors and I look into a persons history to find the key to the beginning of the depression, many times in early childhood. As mentioned before I use Trauma methods to approach the trauma and to find the "keystone" event that may have started the trauma leading to depression. Sometimes there is a biological reason for this depression causing these triggers to go off. I can also then refer to a specialist MD.

Becoming and being depressed can be devastating and as significant as dealing with a serious physical illness. Depression can involve a constellation of symptoms and behavior manifestations that can be incapacitating. Therapy for depression can include a multitude of approaches including diet, exercise, and when appropriate, medications. Often, it is a combination of some or all of these, that helps the client get better. Depression for children could be precipitated by an event or trauma, a family situation or trauma, or for no apparent reason at all. It is important that it is recognized, assessed and treated.

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.

You may feel the depths of despair or merely "out-of-sorts." Depression shows up in our lives in many ways and many of us can ignore its presence as we use "busy-ness" or drinking or perfecting or … to manage our lives. But wouldn't it be great to solve the underlying issue(s) which are trying so hard to get attention through depression? Depression deprives us of joy yet it is possible to move into joy. Depression can shift by talking about what is going on, learning new perspectives and tools, and activating in small moves. I want to help you feel better.

Having depression goes beyond normal feelings of sadness or having the "blues." We might find ourselves losing interest in things that we once enjoyed, we can lose motivation to put one foot in front of the other or we might just feel constantly sad or down. Depression can occur over a couple of weeks to even years. Just know that you don't have to feel this way any longer and there are many ways that we can work together to improve your mood and get you back to feeling hopeful about your future.

Depression is stigmatized, leaving sufferers feeling isolated. Lack of education regarding depression causes others to assume its under the person's control; when often there are biological factors blocking healing. Callous terms like "Snap out of it" leave the sufferer feeling all the more hopeless, because they can't snap out of it any more than a diabetic can snap out of diabetes without medical attention or treatment. Depression can be the result of a depletion of significant hormones in the brain. The Word of God is a powerful tool I use with clients to stifle the negative cognitions of depression. I refer clients for medical intervention when depression is not responding to therapy.

With assessment as a tool, we can determine if you simply have a depressed mood due to a loss or if it is clinical depression. We find that clients experience depression sometimes as a result of shame, guilt, or anger directed toward the self. Because the best treatment for depression is medication + therapy, If we determine that you are experiencing the symptoms of clinical depression, we may refer you to obtain medication. Using therapeutic tools such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or Acceptance Commitment Therapy, we've seen clients recover, interrupting the patterns of thinking and behaving that have maintained their symptoms of depression.

Not that I do not empathize with the suffering depression brings, but I do think depression can be instructive to your lives. While many people view depression as simply a bad thing and/or something we just want to get rid of, I view depression as a unique opportunity to learn from the depression. Why is the depression there? I have not met anyone who was depressed that did not feel that way for a reason. Symptoms of depression usually tell us clues as to why the human soul is suffering, and also can also provide further clues to the solutions. Many solutions easily flow right out of finding out the "why's" and "what's" of the depression.
