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.

Depression and anxiety often occur together and treatment is similar from a cognitive view. However, treating depression requires some special approaches to stop the cycle of negative thinking, loss of energy, and feelings of hopelessness and guilt. My approach is to first explore if there are events or situations that might explain the depression. When there are no apparent reasons for depression, then it is likely that there is a biological or genetic underpinning. Most important is for the person suffering from depression to recognize that treatments can and do work to break the depressive cycle.

People errantly think depression is merely about sadness. It is not. The key "emotion" found in depressed people is shame. Their desires, dreams, and goals seem to disappear behind a cloud of shame. If you go to another therapist, you can spend 3-5 years with them never really hitting upon the key issue, shame.

It might be nice to know "where" our depression "comes from", "probably from childhood somewhere", but having that information might not be the most effective key to moving out of it, and live a more purpose driven, satisfying life. I have begun to use hypnosis to help clients access new experiences of their inner strengths and resources, rather than continue to absorb themselves in problems. Therapy using hypnosis can help generate an alternate, more positive view their lives, and facilitate processing information in exciting new ways.

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.

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.

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.

Are you sad? Having trouble functioning? Has life lost it's meaning? Are you outwardly successful yet wondering "Is that all there is?" Although many of us feel down from time to time, depression can sometimes feel debilitating. Depression has many causes. My approach includes work on various levels: emotional, relational, cognitive, and spiritual. Therapy can help you be mindful of your experiences, your emotions and your thought patterns, have compassion with yourself, develop resilience and hopefulness and get you back to living the life you desire.
