When depression hits, it's like a ton of bricks weighing on you. It feels like there is no way out of the fog. It can be helpful to have a place to explore this and validate how difficult it can be to experience depression. Therapy is a safe place for you to understand what underlying issues might be making the depression more difficult to manage. I will provide that safe place for you to gain understanding about yourself and the depression you experience. I will also work with you to find tools that can help you move through it with more ease and confidence. I look forward to supporting you through this process.

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.

Depression is more than sadness, even deep sadness. It often includes 'weight' and 'drag,' where every effort is difficult and feels futile. At its worst, it can feel hopeless. Depression can be an extremely difficult challenge. I say this because if you are managing this condition, even if it's just by waking up or getting out of bed, you are already succeeding, and potentially on your way to improving the quality of your life. If you choose to take the even more difficult step of finding support, congratulations, I'd like to help. I can offer you hope, to hold it for you, if you are unable to hold it for yourself - and with that and our shared effort, find some relief.

Depression is a complex condition that ranges from mild to severe and affects adults and children. I establish a therapeutic climate where my clients come to trust our relationship as positive and supportive. I’m often able to identify subtle signs and symptoms of depression that interfere with my client’s ability to function successfully. I utilize elements of Cognitive Behavior Therapy to help them change negative patterns of thought and behavior and self-defeating responses. My goal is to help my clients understand and appreciate how their emotional experience affects their behavior. I aim to help them improve their interpersonal skills and the nature and quality of their relationships.

Different types of depression require different types of treatment. I work with each client to fully understand their unique experience of depression in their lives. With or without medication, therapy helps you identify exactly how depression is impacting your life and relationships. Learning new coping mechanisms and building on your existing skills helps you make lasting changes to better your mood and improve overall happiness.

There are many causes for depression and many forms of depression, from reactive depressions to deep internal depressions. Sudden depressions as well as long lasting depressions are not to be ignored. They are serious emotional responses which can benefit extensively from appropriate counseling and therapeutic interventions. Having a caring and listening ear to talk to during a time of depressive despair can be extremely healing. It is often stated that a healthy listening relationship can heal beyond measure. There are depressions which will benefit from medical interventions along with talking interventions. In general, cared for depressions will greatly improve and most will pass.

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.
