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.

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.

Cognitive Behavioral therapy is the treatment of choice for depression. How you think effects how you feel, so we will work together to alter your irrational and non-productive thoughts and behaviors. First we will assess your symptoms and the impact of the "dark cloud" that is robbing you of joy and energy, then set goals and develop a treatment plan to help you get back to your old self, only better.

I believe there are at least two kinds of depression. One is more biological or "hard-wired" and may need a biological-level intervention. Therefore, I may refer you to be evaluated by a doctor or psychiatrist for medication. The other kind of depression often arises from injured relationships or facing obstacles in life. Sometimes, depression can be a combination of both. If your depression results from a hurt relationship or failures in life, I can help you to rise above it. As a Family Therapist, I treat problems through a relationship-oriented perspective. Therefore, I may be able to address the kinds of relational issues that often worsen depression.

Andrea is certified in IPT for depression. This is an Interpersonal psychotherapy. It is a brief, attachment-focused psychotherapy that centers on resolving interpersonal problems and symptomatic recovery. It is an empirically supported treatment that follows a highly structured and time-limited approach and is intended to be completed within 12–16 weeks. IPT is based on the principle that relationships and life events impact mood and that the reverse is also true.

Depression is a complicated, but debilitating experience. Many factors may contribute to your depression, and a multi-faceted approach is often necessary to address physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual contributing factors. Sometime tackling depression means processing unresolved memories or situations; at other times the best approach involves the here-and-now. Changes in one area often effect changes in another, so the important thing is to dive in with courage to work toward change. I know how hard this can be when suffering depression, and the fact that you are here researching help is a great first step. Let's work together at developing a plan that re-empowers you.

Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. More than just a bout of the blues, depression isn't a weakness and you can't simply "snap out" of it. Depression may require long-term treatment. But don't get discouraged. Most people with depression feel better with medication, psychotherapy or both.

Depression can be the overwhelming mountain and clouds that seems impossible to overcome. Being able to have a sense of hope in times of depression is essential in overcoming the challenges, the cloudiness, the lack of clarity that comes with depression. Counseling can help with that. Counseling can provide tools to help you overcome depression, and can provide you with an individualized plan to make way and overcome the overwhelming tower or mountain that depression can be. Depression removes our energy, and overcoming depression can be a helpful way to regain energy, hope, and a purpose for life again. Let's work towards overcoming your depression together through therapy and interventions

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.
