Depression can feel overwhelming, debilitating and just plain no fun. Sometimes there is a clear reason for depression such as a loss or a difficult transition. Sometimes the reason is unclear. Whatever your situation, my goal as your therapist will be to help you better understand the source of the pain and use concrete tools and skills to help you overcome it. Using a variety of methods, we can find ways to help you feel a renewed sense of purpose, confidence, and joy in your life. I offer EMDR therapy which is a highly-researched, effective form of therapy that often creates positive change in fewer sessions than talk therapy alone. Contact me for more details.

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.

Each person experiences being stuck, and unable to get out of the deep whole they are in. While most people are able to some how pull themselves out, some individuals are not. I work with individuals, and some times their families, to being positive changes to the core beliefs that have created the deep tracks that keep some people stuck in depression. Understanding why you are depressed can help, and knowing the steps to build a strong working foundation of support and the ability to get "unstuck" is the major focus of my therapy for helping people who feel stuck and depressed. Increasing qulaity of life is part of treatment, along with understanding and recognizing choices beyond the past.

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.

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 usually caused from helplessness in the face of overwhelming situations. This can be a learned response from unresolved traumas in your past. My approach to depression is multifaceted, beginning with getting to know you and understanding your life and its hardships. Very quickly, I like to move into using Somatic Experiencing to help resolve past trauma and retrain your nevous system to be able to re-regulate itself in the face of what used to be overwhelming circumstances. I have seen a lot of people rise up out of the hell of depression, with and without medication, to live the lives they were meant to live.

Our thoughts, behaviors and our emotions are all strongly connected. Change one of these three and the others have to shift as well. Cognitive-behavioral therapy relies on these connections to give you some control back over your depression. Studies have shown Cognitive-behavioral therapy to be a highly-effective treatment for depression, with or without medication. Different types of depression require different types of treatment. I work with each client to fully understand their unique experience of depression. We can work together to build on existing skills and find new ways to help you manage your mood.

Depression can be overwhelming and cause people to feel hopeless and helpless. Unfortunately depression may not subside without some kind of intervention. The good news is that once someone is able to develop the understanding of their depression and he/she can learn what coping skills work best for him/her, they will be able to use those in the future should the depression ever return.

I use Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to treat depression. At the heart of CBT is an assumption that a person's mood is directly related to his or her patterns of thought. Negative, dysfunctional thinking affects a person's mood, sense of self, behavior, and even physical state. I use a combination of techniques and interventions to address and assist my client to learn to recognize negative patterns of thought, evaluate their validity, and replace them with healthier ways of thinking. I aim to help clients change patterns of behavior that come from dysfunctional thinking.
