Depression counseling involves assessing and making appropriate changes in the physical, emotional, and relational aspects of a client's life that are contributing to depressed mood. I work with clients to both remedy the underlying causes and their resulting cognitions, and the lifestyle habits that hinder their recovery. Often it is appropriate to work in conjunction with medical professionals who may suggest medications and/or nutritional supplements to correct the biochemical aspects of depressive episodes. Clients benefit most when their treatment is comprehensive and avoids dealing solely with symptom relief.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Depression has been shown to work time and again with decades of research supporting its efficacy. There is a light at the end of the tunnel! When you are depressed motivation and desire are hard to come by. I hope to help you create and put into action a plan that does not rely on motivation to enact change. You will begin to learn how to catch the thoughts and behaviors that keep you stuck and change them to healthier alternatives. My goal is to help provide you with the tools and skills you need to find joy and pleasure in things again and to be able to envision your life worth living.

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.

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.

Depression, just the very word feels hopeless and limited, there is a sense of internal and external collapse of the world. Yet it can also be used as a tremendous starting point to examine one's life, goals, expectations and longings, both current and historical. Depression can actually function to suppress emotional pain that has been cut off, denied and stuffed away. Depression is treatable today.

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.

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.

I practice a type of therapy for depression called Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which research has shown to be especially effective with depressive disorders. Using CBT, we work together to discover underlying beliefs (which we call cognitive distortions) that are causing or contributing to your depressive symptoms. Once identified, we then use a variety of techniques to help you correct those thinking patterns that are causing you difficulty. We measure progress constantly so that we can try new techniques if needed, 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.

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.

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 .

Depression can be experienced at any age and comes in various degrees impacting how we feel about ourselves and others. It can change our mood, eating, sleeping, thinking, and involvement in activities. Many individuals suffer in silence but their mood and behavior reveal a deeper turmoil within themselves. Talking to a trusted person about those inner thoughts is helpful but many friends and family members may not have the knowledge and skills to help you. Seeking a professional counselor can reduce feelings of isolation and provide you with feelings of hope. “Without counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed” Proverbs 15:22.

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.

Sometimes "talk therapy" alone can relieve depression and most clients find it to be helpful. I do utilize cognitive therapy when dealing with depression because our thoughts have a great deal to do with our feelings and there is evidence that this treatment approach to depression can be quite effective. When necessary, I will provide a psychiatric referral for an evaluation to determine whether or not you are a candidate for medication.
